<ger_admin>
Is there any detailed Features page? I need a thinclient os, which is able to connect to virtual desktops with blast or at least pcoip and support for dual Monitors & USB Redirection. Is that possible with LTSP.
10:16
<alkisg>
ger_admin: imagine ltsp like a local installation, except it's netbooted
10:16
So, whatever you're asking, translate it to "could I do that with a local installation"?
10:17
E.g. can you connect to virtual desktops with a local ubuntu installation? Sure, you just use any remote desktop software
10:18
Like x2go, freerdp, vnc etc etc
10:18
Does xfreerdp and x2go support usb redirection? Sure, they do
10:20
<ger_admin>
Okay thanks so im going to find out if Ubuntu can do it. We mostly use Windows and our experience with linux clients connecting over RDP to windows was awful. As we now dont use RDP anymore i want to give it another chance.
10:20
<alkisg>
ger_admin: same here, so we're recommending netbooted fat clients instead of remote desktop like you're asking
10:20
So it's only remote disk, not remote desktop
10:24
<ger_admin>
okay thats not really an option for us. I just hope VMWare did a good job porting their application to linux.
10:24
<alkisg>
ger_admin: does vmware have a remote desktop application of its own? Like sphere or something? I don't use vmware
10:24
If so, it might work better than rdp
10:25
<ger_admin>
Yes they have, its called VMWare Horizon : https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/VMware_Horizon
10:25
<alkisg>
In general, whatever you can do with a local ubuntu installation, you can then do it with ltsp as well, and have the clients diskless
10:25
I.e. ltsp mainly helps in the "diskless" part
10:26
<ger_admin>
And they use their own remote desktop protocol, and support Linux.
10:26
it should even work through a modern webbrowser they claim
10:27
<alkisg>
Then you don't need to check about xfreerdp at all, just install and use that
10:27
<ger_admin>
Okay i will check that out. Thanks for your help.
