Question: is there a way to get every single client to login as a separate user automatically without manually setting AUTOLOGIN for every single MAC address in ltsp.conf?
Yes, as long as you can derive the username from the hostname using a regex
Yeah... so I'm doing it manually now...

What are your hostnames and your usernames like, e.g. pc01 and guest01

I wassetting up new ubuntu 20.4 ltsp installation AUTOLOGIN with gdm3 + default session Exec=env GNOME_SHELL_SESSION_MODE=ubuntu /usr/bin/gnome-session --systemd --session=ubuntu. It did not autologin at all. I was hoping it would login with the wayland session
vsuojanen: when you specified AUTOLOGIN, did you also set the PASSWORD?
no, I have used LIGHTDM and NFS homes before and it worked without that in ltsp.conf
Indeed with NFS homes it should work. Is the setup available now, can you paste the generated /etc/gdm/custom.conf?
(on the ltsp client)
ok. just a moment
alkisg: sorry I have to be away I'm not able to read the chat now for next couple hours
The generated /etc/gdm/custom.conf seems fine, I see no ltsp issue there
alkisg I think I have the default session missing from somewhere in gdm3 configuration. just haven't found it
the gear balloon on bottom right in gdm3 it's now Ubuntu for the autologin user and not Ubuntu (Wayland). This is just one issue with gnome-session, I think I continue testing the gnome some time and will switch to lightdm and mate-session, i think gnome-sesison require too much from clients in the environment
So autologin works, but it's using xorg instead of wayland?
the gear balloon tells it's using Ubuntu.
apparently it has not worked. I need to select Ubuntu (Wayland) from the gear balloon

I can't see where and what configuration affects the default as I have in /usr/share/xsessions files mate.desktop and ubuntu.desktop
I still haven't understood if autologin works or not
"it works with the wrong session", or "it doesn't autologin"?
alkisg: thank you for your time, I was configuring custom session script for autologin where I had directly copied the Ubuntu.desktop line Exec=, and that's where the issue was. autologin resolved but it's not using wayland mode
The session type is also saved per-user, in either /var/lib/AccountsService or in ~/.dmrc etc
Does the problem happen in a newly created user?
Run `adduser test` directly on the ltsp client,
then edit custom.conf to specify the test user,
then systemctl restart gdm3, and see if it autologins on wayland
All that without client reboot
Btw, Ubuntu 20.04 defaults to xorg anyway, right?
So maybe you need to specify a gdm directive to default to wayland?
yes. I see. I thought it would be wayland default in Ubuntu all beginnning from the gdm
well autlogin, it is now working
I will worry about wayland if needed
thank you for the time
