<Tim334>
Why does this line in ltsp.conf not work?: GDM3_CONF="user-session=xterm"
13:10
I have configured autologin
13:10
which works fine
13:12
<alkisg>
Does it end up in the client /etc/gdm?
13:12
If it does, it's no longer related to ltsp, it can be troubleshooted without ltsp
13:13
The task of ltsp is to just get that line in that file
13:16
<Tim334>
the ltsp.conf file is not there
13:16
what am i missing?
13:18
but ltsp init has modified /etc/gdm3/custom.conf file as i can see..
13:19
and it has "user-session=xterm" line in it
13:19
but all i get is autologon to desktop
13:23
<alkisg>
So it's no longer an ltsp issue to troubleshoot, it's a gdm issue :)
13:23
So at that point, you can go to #gnome etc, and just ask "why this isn't working", without even mentioning ltsp...
13:24* alkisg would need to re-read the gdm man page to help
13:24
<Tim334>
okay, thank you again alkisg :)
14:34
<alkisg>
Tim334: btw, do you really have a /usr/share/xsessions/xterm.desktop session?
14:40
<Tim334>
yeah, for testing purpose
14:40
<alkisg>
OK
14:41
<Tim334>
it's actually symlinked from /etc/ltsp
14:56
<alkisg>
If you select it manually from the login screen, does it work?
15:01
<Tim334>
how can i select it from login screen? i'm no linux guru, sorry :-)
15:01
oh, found it :D
15:01
<alkisg>
I don't use gdm, but usually there's a gear or a little icon next to the user name, that allows to select the session
15:01
<Tim334>
and yes, it works
15:02
<alkisg>
OK, then it's just a matter of finding the appropriate gdm3 configuration line
15:02
<Tim334>
i need to make default session?
15:02
make it*
15:03
<alkisg>
I don't know, are you trying to make it optional, default, mandatory?
15:04
<Tim334>
mandatory :)
15:04
<alkisg>
Why don't you just put a /usr/local/bin/gnome-session override then?
15:05
Run what you want there in that script, and if you want, you can also exec /usr/bin/gnome-session
15:05
Btw the gnome documentation appears to be around there: https://help.gnome.org/admin/system-admin-guide/stable/lockdown-single-app-mode.html.en
16:09
<Tim334>
How do i add a line (for setting default session for user) to /var/lib/AccountsService/users/kiosk-user in ltsp client? user is created on client boot.
