Edubuntu 12.04 LTSP fat client user accounts
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 21, 2014
I am fairly new to LTSP and linux, I have a functional LTSP server, all clients are Fat Clients. Using /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf I configured autologin by MAC address.
I want each user account to purge or refresh every logout or before each login. I want any changes to revert back to "default", I want all saved files to be deleted.
Does anybody have any ideas?
How to set language on Fat Client on LTSP when building the IMG file ???
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 8, 2010
I am having some trouble to setup a default language on a FAT Client on a LTSP install.
My running server is a Ubuntu 9.10 - LTSP install in 64 bits and my server default language in Portuguese-BR.
But when I try to run the command "sudo ltsp-build-client" with the apropriate
settings created on ltsp-build-client.conf file (as https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/FatClients) I ALWAYS get the image created all in English and when I boot
up all my fat client terminals, everything is in english and I didn't find anything that
could change this, even on the System -> Admin -> Supported Lang Tab....
The question are, IS there a way to build this image and specify the language on ltsp-build-client.conf file or any other way ????
Ltsp fat client cannot mount nfs during bootup

I'm trying to setup Ltsp under Ubuntu 8.10, I follow the instructions from the LTSPFatClients page and used the fat client plugin to setup the image, but whenever I logon the fat client machine, the message "Your home directory is listed as: '/home/user1' but it does not appear to exist...." any ideas?
Thanks in advance
XDM client setup
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 25, 2010
I want to configure a Ubuntu box as a XDM thin client, basically broadcast an XDMCP request to the local network and display a list of servers available, and then allow me to log on to the server of my choice.
Is there a ready made package to do this - if not, can someone point me in the right direction for how to roll this out on Ubuntu 9 or 10?
I have Googled for instructions but they all seem to refer to quite old versions of Ubuntu (6ish).
Thanks in advance,
DNS Client Setup In Ubuntu Server
- date: June 6, 2013
Not sure if this is the best section of the forum to post something like this, and I imagine it's probably not a particularly difficult issue, but my google-fu has failed me.
I'm using Ubuntu Server 12.04, and there is a small issue which leads me to suspect that I must have the DNS settings incorrect somewhere in my configuration. In the server room that I am using, I am normally able to connect via ssh to a machine on the *local* network with a shortened command:
ssh [email protected]
However, on the server that I have set up, *outgoing* connections to other machines on the *local* network require:
ssh [email protected]
Note the addition of the domain name. Incoming connections to this machines that I've set up still work with the shortened version, it is only outgoing connections which give the normal error:
ssh: Could not resolve hostname servername: Name or service not known
Currently, the way that I've attempted to set this machin
Edubuntu Fat Clients any Guru out there for a few questions?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 4, 2013
I am setting up a test Edubuntu server & lab and have a few questions. The lab is 12 PCs (dell gx520s with 1gb ram) and I would like to set them up as fat clients so that students can surf the net and do light gaming. I figure making them fat clients should work with this.
- From what I can tell, making a client "thick" only works for the OS and whatever apps you specifically select. Is this true?
- Will making them thick help with games like Tux Racer, xMOTO, majog, sudoku etc. ?
- How can you tell when a thick client is working? (vs. thin client).
Any help greatly appreciated,
LTSP Fat Client Network Needs
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 6, 2012
About how much network bandwidth is used by a LTSP fat client when just browsing the web (minus the bandwidth to connect to the internet)? And is there a way to make the fat client swap to a local hard drive?
Edubuntu fat clients, gamepads and sharing same account
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 13, 2013
First - I would like to request that someone connected with Ubuntu Forums PLEASE create an Edubuntu specific forum. Edubuntu is so different than anything else, it truly needs its own place.
I want to setup a fun lab for students - play games & surf internet. I want to implement fat clients to take advantage of the PCs (core2duo's 1gb or more ram) hardware. With fat clients - do they still need hard drives?
Games - how well do games run in fat clients? I have a list of about 40 games from the Ubuntu Software Center - lots of things like suduko etc - westnoth etc., tux racer...
Games - can fat clients use a game pad?
User Profile - is there an issue with creating a single account - say STUDENT - and having all the users (12 of them) using the same account at the same time? I plan on locking down the account a bit using pessulus.
Any help greatly appreciated,
LTSP thin clients or tradition fat client network?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: August 6, 2008
I'm working on a proposal that tries to build a computer lab for disadvantaged children in my city. I realize that Edubuntu is the way to go as I'm a Ubuntu user and an open source advocate.
When talking on #hardware at freenode, someone suggested I should not go with thin clients because of the following reasons:
- Kids cannot tweak the OS at all.
- old PCs are more versatile
- the network may experience sluggishness
However, as far as know, if we invest in a good server, sluggishness can be avoided. And it seems to me that most people would go with thin clients when it comes to setting up such a network.
Some of the benefits of a thin client network I know of are:
- Simpler maintenance.
- lower costs of setup
- resources maximization
- clients can share the power of the server
I haven't seen anyone actually doing this so it is good to learn from your experience.
meerkat fat client login

nbd9 unknown partition table.
There are some threads using a google search dating around august 2009 and no real answers to the same problem that I am having.
Can login as a user alt+ctl+f1 no problem thats how I found the error in the client syslog.
On the normal login screen I can enter a user and then a password but it either comes back with a new login screen or shows the little revolving icon for ever.
Syslog on the server shows nbd server disconnect request received.
This happens consistently on one pc which uses a floppy network boot
The other2 pc's I have in the house have network boot capability and both login fine. ???
