alkisg: Booting from the remote server is fast enough for what I'm doing. We load our LTSP image to use 'thinlinc' to remotely connect to our workstation VM which is fast. (NOTE: We have a 250x250mbps fibre plan which helps)
Pros are that we don't have to upgrade our server as it will be in a VM remotely, better security and we won't have any data onsite so we could rent out our office space a few times a week without issues.
Does Thinlinc use tigervnc or rdesktop? It it more convenient than just running https://github.com/ArcticaProject/lightdm-remote-session-x2go ?
It uses TigerVNC and it's very fast
|04:48||* alkisg prefers software that exists in debian repositories, when it can do the same things compared to those outside the repositories|
AFAIK x2go is a lot faster than tigervnc, but sure whatever works for you
I've tried both x2go and thinlinc and from my tests of using it remotely for a year on both thinlinc is much faster
I think they use a custom version of TigerVNC
It's free for up to 10 users so you can easily test it on your system
I was using X2go for remote work for about 2yrs actually but switched to thinlinc and haven't looked back.
I too like to use things in the repository, but sometimes there are exceptions
I've tested a lot of vnc versions like tigervnc, realvnc (which is faster than tigervnc); in my experience, xrdp and x2go are a lot faster than them; I only use vnc for screen sharing now or for VNC'ing to an already logged in remote session
Give thinlinc a go as it's much faster than all the VNC servers I've ever used.
Also tigervnc has a lot of issues (I reported them upstream) and isn't usable for us
All the other VNC viewers do work fine though; they're just a lot slower than x2go/xrdp due to the protocols involved
We'll I don't know what thinlinc do under the hood, but it's fast, much faster than X2go
Your use case may vary; e.g. maybe your fiber has so low latency that has a different in the user experience
for instance I couldn't play a Youtube video over X2go, but I can play it at full screen remotely on thinlinc
yeah I do have fibre (250/250) at the office and at home (100/40) that could definately be a factor
But give it a quick go and see if you find thinlinc quicker than X2go as it would be interesting to know
Does is support connecting to an existing remote session?
That's how I use it
Is it a distribution or a package?
Or you can configure it to have multiple sessions
it's a package
Does it support arm, e.g. raspberries?
It's got ARMv7
So I think that's PI
Yes; hopefully it should also work in my odroid-c2 and rockpro64; I use these for remote-desktop to wokr
Thanks, I'll give it a go
Cool, tell us what you think. I don't work for them I'm just a user
Ah the server requires registration... I hope it works on ubuntu 22.04
A last question, I don't suppose it works on wayland, right?
You don't have to put your email in
haven't tested wayland so I don't know, I think it might
https://github.com/TigerVNC/tigervnc/issues/158 says they're using fltk which doesn't support wayland; let's see how it goes in the future
ok. I use XFCE on Debian 11 so no wayland required at the moment.
I know it handles multiple monitors nicely and sound input/output and USB redirection and local printer support
So I still use LTSP to build my PXE boot with the thinlinc client installed inside
I tried using thinstation but compared to LTSP I found it much harder to use. Maybe because I've used LTSP for about 10yrs now :)
LTSP rocks :-)
Hehe, the good old days :D
I wonder ....
alkisg: The LTSP oracle. Our beacon of hope in the world of LTSP. With the guidance of this divine emperor, we shall prevail.
All hail alkisg!
|06:14||* alkisg doesn't remember if he ever managed to do...|
hyperbyte: The LTSP manifest clearly states that LTSP developers can only code under the ecstatic music of our almighty D.J. LTSPROCKS, but HyperByte rocks better! (his web design skills are OK too, check out ltsp.org :))
Did I write that? Meh
