Hello Helenah
Right, I can get the display right using the xrandr command now (xrandr --output DVI-D-1 --off --output HDMI-1 --primary --mode 3840x2160 --rate 23.98 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal --output VGA-1 --off) but I've played with the X settings in /etc/ltsp/ltsp.conf and that doesn't seem to make it persistant.
Helenah2, while the client is booted, manually create an /etc/X11/xorg.conf and then restart lightdm
Maybe I'm misunderstanding what those ltsp.conf settings are for.
If you get the correct xorg.conf, then just put it in ltsp.conf
Oh so I just do like normal, ah!
Simple xorg settings can be represented with simple ltsp.conf commands
Advanced xorg settings need a xorg.conf, which you can copy to /etc/X11 on demand
Can I use ltsp.conf to create individual xorg.conf files for different clients?
See the nvidia example at
POST_INIT_LN_XORG="ln -sf ../ltsp/xorg-nvidia.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf"
16:10 can have as many as you like
Oh nice! "MAC address, IP address, or hostname sections can be used to apply settings to specific clients. Those support globs, for example [192.168.67.*]."
Starting to feel like the old lts.conf
It's actually much more powerful

alkisg It worked, thanks.

alkisg Do I need to regen the image each time I update ltsp.conf ?
Helenah2, no you only need `ltsp initrd`
Ah okies
alkisg: Does the OS by default get loaded into the clients RAM?

Helenah2, the image "sectors" are fetched when needed, like if it was a usb disk
E.g. the image may be 1 TB and the client RAM may be 2 GB and it may still work
Oh nice!
alkisg: That's why when I first load an application it's slow, right? Cause the application is being copied to RAM on request sort of thing.
That's nice :)
Helenah2, yeah, it's the same as in local disks

alkisg I'm assuming /etc/passwd isn't copied over to the clients from / on the host because I've changed my user shell to /bin/zsh, did "ltsp image / & ltsp initrd" but the user shell on the client is still /bin/bash
Yeah, the two passwd files are different.
I got an idea
I just create them for the clients.
That worked! :3
