Anyway to get the new LTSP to autologin?
01:56
Seems to fill in the Login/Password because all we have to do is click "Login". But we have to actually click "Login". The old version just bypassed all that.

Ginks: which dm? lightdm?
05:51
Login to the client, open a terminal, and paste the output of this command: grep -r . /etc/*dm* | nc termbin.com 9999
05:51
This will tell us the resulting lightdm configuration

Ginks, which Ubuntu version is this, 16.04?
14:40
Ginks: do two tests: (1) `sudo systemctl restart lightdm` on the client, does it autologin? You can run it via epoptes
14:40
If it doesn't, remove this line: /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf:autologin-user-timeout=2
14:40
And try `sudo systemctl restart lightdm` again

<Ginks>
alkisg, 20.04
16:04* alkisg doesn't have /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf in 20.04
16:04
<Ginks>
alkisg, 'sudo systemctl restart lightdm' on the client works. It goes right back to their desktop
16:05
<alkisg>
OK just a problem with relogin timeout then, it's a known bug of lightdm
16:05
<Ginks>
Sorry
16:05
It's Mate
16:05
It's Ubuntu Mate 18 upgraded to 20
16:05
<alkisg>
Yes, mate here too, it replaced gtk-greeter with slick-greeter in 18.04
16:05
So yours is probably updated from 16.04
16:05
<Ginks>
Yeah, it might be actually
16:06
Last version I remember was 18
16:06
But it's been installed for years
16:06
Slick greeter work better?
16:06
I could care less what greeter there is since really I would prefer them to not have to interact with it anyways
16:07
<alkisg>
An "lightdm-autologin-greeter" exists,which would work best, it should be very easy to setup, but noone has spent time to document it,
16:07
slick might work a bit better than gtk-greeter, but only marginally,
16:07
now try this (moment):
16:08
RELOGIN_TIMEOUT=0
16:08
In ltsp.conf, then ltsp initrd, then reboot client
16:10
<Ginks>
can RELOGIN_TIMEOUT=0 be placed under [server] or should it go under the mac of the client?
16:11
Or even under [clients] ?
16:14
BOOM!
16:14
That worked
16:14
Thanks alkisg
16:15
<alkisg>
np
16:15
Under [clients]
16:21
<Ginks>
Perfect, just put it under [clients] and mass rebooted and they all came up and logged in on their own.
16:21
<alkisg>
!learn relogin as If AUTOLOGIN doesn't work for you, try RELOGIN_TIMEOUT=0 under [clients] in ltsp.conf
16:21
<ltspbot>
The operation succeeded.
16:22
<alkisg>
Ginks: if you logout now, does it relogin?
16:22* alkisg guesses no...
16:23
<alkisg>
In that case, also try RELOGIN_TIMEOUT=5, this autologs in after 5 secs, but it should also work after logout. It's a lightdm bug, but noone cared enough to get it fixed...
16:27
<Ginks>
Yeah, you're right.
16:27
I'll try that
