Calling something "Ubuntu Cafe" might cause some confusion.

Because there is a new hyper-trendy vegetarian restaurant in Napa, California. Obviously stole their name from everyone's favorite Linux distro.
A review from the Santa Rosa Press-Democrat:
[Cafe] Show your .screenrc thread

As similar to the famous conkyrc thread, simple, share your screenrc [+ eventually a screenshot]
mine remains light. Here is the $HOME/.screenrc :
hardstatus alwayslastline "%c %w"
bindkey ^[[1;5A prev
bindkey ^[[1;5B next
bindkey ^[[1;5D prev
bindkey ^[[1;5C next
bindkey ^N screen
bindkey ^[[1;2D prev
bindkey ^[[1;2C next
Enjoy coding guys as a linuxgeek. Happy Tux
Linux internet cafe software?

Has anyone here tried any Linux Internet cafe management software that they could recommend? It could be free or for purchase. I don't mind paying for it if it's very good.

Linux Internet Cafe
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 20, 2004
I'm thinking of putting up a linux internet cafe, I've read suggestions from other forums to use LTSP or make a linux as a thin client, managed by a central linux server.
I've found a variety of management tools and might help me out:

metermaid & ltsp
http://www.enzolutions.com/gcafe/ -- gcafe, not english
http://zeiberbude.sourceforge.net/ -- cafe solution

http://freshmeat.net/projects/clubmanager/ -- cafe solution
http://freshmeat.net/projects/openkiosk/ -- cafe solution
http://freshmeat.net/projects/cyborgproject/ -- cafe solution
The Xp-look might attract non-linux customers and all others can help manage the cafe. I've thought of adding some other services like:
The fax, printing, etc part
Installationsprobleme Debian, Suse und Ubuntu
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 10, 2014
Nachdem Win8.1 soweit recht ordentlich lief, wollte ich Debian 7.3.0 x64 installieren. Der Installatinsvorgang blieb irgendwann hängen und ich bemerkte unter anderem auch Meldungen wie "Kernel panic". Nach mehreren vergeblichen Versuchen probierte ich es mit Debian 7.2 als Live-System, ebenfalls erfolglos.
Danach ein Versuch mit OpenSuse 13.1, welches ebenfalls nach kurzer Zeit ohne für mich erkennbare Fehlernachricht stoppte.
Der nächste Versuch mit Kubuntu 13.10 lief zunächst erfreulich, dauerte zwar endlos lange, aber endlich konnte ich über das Bootmenü Kubuntu starten.
Nachdem das System vollständig geladen war, wunderte ich mich, dass die Maus sich zwar bewegen ließ, jedoch keine Reaktion auf die
gewählten Anwendungen erfolgte, bis sich plötzlich nach langer Zeit ein Fenster öffnete.
Danach konnte ich feststellen, dass vom Klick bis zur Reaktion immer ca. 5 Sekunden und mehr vergingen.
Ein Blick ins Syslog zeigt, dass pro Sekunde 5 bis 6 Eintrgäge erfolgten
Setting up cyber cafe kiosk systems
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 8, 2010
My friend and I are helping a local internet cafe transition their public computers (and possibly servers at some point) to run on free software (after many bad virus experiences). Currently, they are using Antamedia Internet Caffe, with the server program running on a POS system that for the time being still needs to run Windows. We played with ZenCafe a little, but ideally we need something that runs in kiosk mode, allowing the user to browse the web, instant message and word process.
ubuntu in cyber cafe
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: January 11, 2006
I am thinking of setting up a cyber cafe, and I am keen to do it using Ubuntu. I have found one link on this subject here:
I am keen to hear about any experiences of using Ubuntu in cyber cafes. Or advice and suggestions about how it could/should be done. Particularly with regard to client log in/out and billing. Hardware wise, the budget although not unlimited is sizeable, and I am thinking of around three servers backing up twenty to thirty clients.
all comments welcome and appreciated
Linux Distro for "Internet Cafe"
location: linuxquestions.com - date: March 12, 2009
I was asked by the lokal church if I could build up an "Internet Cafe"in the library
I thought best would be to work with LiveCDs because everytime I boot the system is new and no one can write on the non existing harddrives or harm the system in other way.
But there are some more details that I can't solve.
I need that people log in with a number and that allows them to use the computer for one hour or ½ an hour and if the don't use it they can use the rest annother time. But if we don't have limitations there will be allways the same persons there and they block the computers for the others. We want to avoid conflicts from beginning.
The computers shouldn't run only in kiosk mode. People shall be able to use also wordprozessing because there will be several people who in surch of a job might write their curriculum or letters or so on.
And last but not least it should be in German (and/or Italian because we also have an Italian community in that church).

Hey, I am an IT admin for an internet cafe and coffee bar. And when I first took over I sadly realized that were paying a lot of money for a windows internet cafe program. But, that isn't the only problem, because our computers that we provide to the public are running windows. Now, that's not necessarily a bad thing. I just don't want to be running virus scans all the time and having windows crash every other day. I want to make the switch to Ubuntu, but before that I need to know if there are any good (maybe even free) internet cafe/wifi hotspot programs. If anyone has any information or tips they could share, it would be greatly appreciated.
