<danboid>
alkisg, If I have an LTSP server and clients all on 16.04, might I have any probs trying to manage them using the epoptes version from the 18.04 (or 20.04) repos?
11:24
<alkisg>
It should work fine
11:24
<danboid>
cool
11:24
<alkisg>
Add the greek schools ppa in your sources, I think I have it there
11:24
(along with other fixes for 16.04)
11:25
<danboid>
So you can send messages to individual machines and groups right?
11:25
via epoptes
11:27
<alkisg>
Yup
11:31
<danboid>
I feel a bit silly asking but there's no support for VOIP is there? :)
11:31
That would be a beast
11:31
There won't be any support for user to user messaging anyway
11:32
I just felt compelled to ask
11:32
or what have you considered adding to epoptes but not done so yet?
11:33
<alkisg>
Nope and nope; epoptes is just for classroom management, we have no need for voip within our schools
11:34
Now if someone found funding for a couple of years of development time... hehe, nope and nope :)
11:36
<danboid>
Hmm its vnc based. Could it not be done better using x2go instead?
11:37
Have you tried x2go recently? It 'just works' and well
11:39
I think its got better compression than vnc, it has audio support and you don't need to open the extra ports like VNC

<alkisg>
danboid: x2go uses vnc to share the same screen
13:02
Also, x2go won't go anymore now with wayland. And, it's so unstable that it always has "stale sessions" that need cleaning... we ended up completely abandoning it in schools here, even for plain server access from home to school
13:04
For "new display" access we're using xrdp/xfreerdp now, and for "same display" access, vnc, as it's the only one that can share the same display
13:54
<danboid>
Interesting. Thanks!

<alkisg>
!learn apt-update as `apt update && apt full-upgrade --yes && apt purge --auto-remove $(dpkg -l | awk '/^rc/ { print $2 }')`
14:22
<ltspbot>
The operation succeeded.
