I just finished setting up a new computer lab at my kids school, using LTSP and 22 think clients connecting to Ubuntu.Everything is going beautifully, and I'm using static IPs and autologin so that when each computer is turned on it logs itself in with no userintervention. The problem is, when users go to the top right system menu and select "Shut Down", they are brought out to the login screen for a second and then immediately logged back in automatically to the Desktop. How should I be shutting down the thin clients?he only way to do it at the moment is to have everyone hold the power button down until the CPU shuts off, but it feels sloppy and unhealthy.
I have been working/implementing LTSP based thin clients now using Ubuntu 10.04 LTS 32bit server. I intend to change the default purple Ubuntu splash. I have already removed the "quiet splash" parameters in the pxeconfig file. And it works, giving me a text boot. But what i needed was a replacement for the splash.
I am trying to install and configure LTSP on a server for a HP thin client to boot off. The version of Ubuntu that I am using is 11.04 x86 and it is a fresh install on a dual core system with 2GB RAM. I followed a guide which comprised of these commands.
sudo apt-get install ltsp-server-standalone openssh-server sudo ltsp-build-client or if your on a 64-bit system with 32-bit machines do sudo ltsp-build-client arch i386 for editing the servers IP values use /etc/ltsp/dhcpd.conf after that you need to restart DHCP server sudo /etc/init.d/dhcp3-server restart and update sshkeys -sudo ltsp-update-sshkeys and if you updated dhcpd.conf then you need to update you image also by typing in terminal ltsp-update-image
Everything seemed to install as it should but when I try to boot from the thin client it just times out and says no DHCP or proxy invites received. I turned DHCP off on the router and even tried another router, but I still get nothing. I am at a bit of a loose end and I hope someone on here can point me in the right direction of where I am going wrong.
My 32-bit Ubuntu 9.10 [Karmic Koala] LTSP server has two NICs, one with Dynamic IP set by a DSL modem and the other with static IP of 192.168.0.254. I also have 4 thin Clients that boot from this server without any problems and another computer with Ubuntu 9.04 running some PHP programs with dynamic IP given by the same DSL modem. When I send requests to these PHP programs from thin clients, they all give the LTSP server's dynamic IP as their IP so I cannot trace who has sent this request to response back.
I actually know this is logical. Because the requests are sent by a program that's actually running on the LTSP server rather than the thin client. But my question is How can I run a program on a thin client with it's own IP? I also should mention that the dhcp3-server service running on the LTSP server has no conflicts with the DSL dhcp on the network and I know that the 4 thin clients get the IPs ranging from 192.168.1.101 through 192.168.1.104 from the dhcp3-server service. Because I can ping them while they're on. but /sbin/ifconfig on them shows info about the LTSP server.
I have configured server ubuntu 11.04. Everything works fine, but there is a need for some clients to connect local hard drive. What should I do? How and what modules are added to the ltsp-image? How to register in the fstab on the client? Maybe I'm going the wrong way?
I have an old HP T5700 thin client. I have replaced the FLASH memory with an 2.5" hard drive and have installed a minimal version of Ubuntu Lucid on it. I would like to get the audio to work - specifically the microphone. sudo aplay -l gives:
is there anyone knows how to setup and configure thin client in edubuntu 10.04?. From the beginning installation until thin client work.we have 2 set of computers. 1 computer installed edubuntu 10.04 and installed LTSP (Linux Terminal Server Project) in the OS without NIC Card. And the other computers has only NIC card.. We setup it in the bios as a "First Boot" Network Card. We connect 2 computers using "pair-to-pair connection". There and after, we restart the 2 computers. "Nothings Happened".
I'm attempting to take Ubuntu 10 down to an image as small as possible to support Citrix Receiver. We currently log them into a browser interface using Firefox where they authenticate against a Citrix DDC and then launch the plug-in. I'm wondering if there is a simple way to determine what services I can shutoff to limit the footprint of the OS. Some of the machines have only 256MB of RAM. They run the plug-in just fine, but there's a lot background activity affecting the machines...
After switching over to linux on my desktop PC (ubuntu) I would like te learn more about linux.I'm trying to get an ELO touchscreen working on an IBM thin client. At the moment I managed to boot it from a CF card.(normally it boots kernel.2200 from a host PC but to avoid interference with the operating system, a flight simulator, I want to try it first with the system booted from a flash card) I tried to install the 32 bit Linux driver from the ELO-website but did not succeed.I was following the manual.I managed to extract the files and copied them to the right directory but when I type in "make" the command is not recognised. I don't know if it would ever work, but when I tried "make" on my Ubuntu machine I get error #2?! What does that mean.
I would like have my client computer be able to boot off of a cd right into a terminal server connection. Not click here, then there, enable wireless....so on.. Just boot into a terminal server connection screen.
i want to share the Internet connection to thin client from my Ubuntu server,Internet is accessible to my Ubuntu server but i am unable to boot from thin client to server,i configured DHCP but of no use.can any plz send me the detailed steps to configure thin clients in my network
I have Samba PDC server on CentOS 5..we have 10 thin clients in our network which were working fine previously with the windows Terminal services... Now i have replaced my windows 2003 Domain to Samba Domain Controller.. Is there any why i can connect our thin clients with SAMBA DC in the our environment?
Environment: Ubuntu 9.04 Server/Thin Client. I tried to use KTouch in a classroom with 20 students working at thin client workstations. I thought KTouch was supposed to keep track of the students' typing statistics, what lessons they completed, etc. However, the students get no statistics or any record of what they have done.
Where can I find information on how KTouch is supposed to record/store this information?
We are using thin client systems in our work environment. There is a central ubuntu server and by using thin clients, we are connecting to our homes. The problem is when I try to install an application, it reported me that I had 200 mb of disk space. But when i try to look from console, I see that /home folder has over 250 gb s of disk space. Even when I try to look from baobab, Disk Usage Analyzer in Ubuntu, i see that my home file system is full.
So what's the reason that I am receiving different kinds of disk space report from different sources? Our system admin here told me that some applications foolishly try to see the physical devices on the thin client and got confused as a result. Is this true?
how to get USB disks/sticks to mount on the clients. Is there something with some configfile that needs to be enabled or in the setup of the default image?
Cannot even move files from the USB drive via the servers USB as it is virtual one on a ESXi host.
the school starts on monday (8 hours) and there is about 10GB files that need to put in place before that.
PS. OpenSuse 11.3 all patched with minimum XFCE desktop on the server. easy-ltsp install via 1-click install on the opensuse/kiwi-ltsp page. Server + 20 clients Everything else functions properly but no CD or USB on clients
I have recently installed an ltsp system, client and server. Everything works except i cannot get my client side serial ports to work or register for that matter. Can anyone point me to the steps i should take to get these working.
I have setup Ubuntu 9.10 ltsp server, and have the client connected with login screen. I can log on the client successfully , but I did not get to the window environment, just see a busy mouse pointer on client screen and the screen of the server is scrambled ... and not viewable. I built the image by ltsl-build-client The server is amd64 version and the client is i386 version.
I'm setting up an LTSP server using Ubuntu 10.4 64bit, and PXE connecting with thin clients using Atheros cards. The ltsp environment is 32bit.
Unfortunately I get an error message with "No interfaces found! Aborting..." and a kernel panic early during PXE boot.
After an enormous amount of investigation, I've narrowed it down to (probably) being the fact that the ltsp chroot environment doesn't have the correct driver for my network card (I believe it's atl1c). The correct driver IS available in Ubuntu, though, as I can successfully boot the thin client from both 64bit and 32bit live CDs and bring up the network interface.
how can I install the correct driver in the PXE environment?
I boot some Slackware with PXE. All work fine except i can't fix the client lockd ports.NFS is compiled inside the kernel, so all modprobe.d options are useless.But rpcinfo -p on the client side shows me totally different ports.On the NFS server, the ports are ok, as i appended lines in /etc/lilo.conf Server and client kernels/modules are identical.
Centos 5.2 Asus Eee box with Atom N270 and it came installed with "eLinux" which doesn't even come close to meeting my needs (low demand intranet server). But eLinux did work as far as I tested it.
First, CentOS seems to detect the Intel 945GME video chip but I end up with a blank screen. I used text mode to install CentOS. Then I searched for a solution. Found someone suggested also using the i915 driver with 945GM. That didn't work.
So, I reverted to a VESA driver. That worked except I couldn't get resolution greater than 800x600 even after I added a Mode line for 1024x768 to the xorg.conf file. However, the X interface wasn't that important. I mostly wanted into the utilities so I could fix the network.
I had tried a fixed address (192.168.1.11) since the box is supposed to be a "thin server." No luck. So, I tried DNS and tried activating again. The suggestion was that the network cable wasn't connected. When using DNS, the network hub lights flash. Something is happening.
Rebooted the computer using Puppy Linux (on a usb key). Video comes up in VESA mode. I can set it to 1024x768. It found the DNS server without any complaints. (Note: I didn't so much as touch the ethernet cable during the reboot).
Copying and Pasting isn't easy with a computer that won't connect to the LAN. But the hardware is a Realtek RTL8111/8168B PCI Express Gigabit Ethernet controller (rev 2). I since tried Slackware 12.1 and it's pretty happy on that box. Vesa mode gets me 1024x768 and the ethernet works (however it thinks it's on eth1 which may or may not be a clue). I'll try CentOS on an old box for other testing.
I just received Ubuntu 9.10 desktop edition in the mail this morning. I ran the CD "live" in my HP Pavilion TX2510us Laptop. The laptop has no hard drive due to it failing in the past, So I have installed Ubuntu on a 1 TB external Hard disk. While Running the CD "Live", before installing it, The sound was working. But now that it is installed and booted up it does not work. I did a few searches and came across a few command lines that may help you guys figure out what is wrong. As Follows:
shannon@shannon-laptop:~$ aplay -l List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: SB [HDA ATI SB], device 0: ALC268 Analog [ALC268 Analog] Subdevices: 1/1
my wireless network doesnt recognize that any network is around. The broadcom STA driver will not install and it says "Please have a look at the log file for details: /var/log/jockey.log" the jog file says
I have installed ubuntu 10.10 netbook edition on my hp mini 1010nr. i went to upload some photos on my sd reader and nothing happened. is there some way to make ubuntu recognize the reader as a usb port.
I can't seem to get my card reader to work. The USB port on the reader works and sometimes I can read my SD card. Usually, nothing shows up in the media/ folder. I looked at this write-up [URL]... but I'm not sure if this is what I should do. Here are some info I was able to pull up:
