Anyone here set up thin clients using Linux Terminal Server Project?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 27, 2012
I live iin Central Asia and am helping out a local reform school for orphans and delinquent youth. I'm working on getting a computer education program started at the school for the 2012-2013 academic year.
Right now they have a few really old computers (Win2K era) and I'm working to scrounge up more computers for them. Because of (1) old hardware, (2) lack of software licenses, (3) lack of money to acquire software licenses, and (4) a general love of Linux I'm considering setting up the old computers as LTSP thin clients.
According, I have quite a few questions:
Has anyone here deployed LTSP in an educational environment?
If so, what were some difficulties you faced?
What sort of hardware would you recommend for a server that has approximately 20 clients (I imagine disk I/O becomes an issue as you scale up the number of clients/server)?
Any educational software / curricula you recommend?
Do you have other helpful tips before I start planning this out?

Error 0x8007045D: Coping files from failing 3TB WD Green HDD, I need a Linux terminal
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 27, 2013
I was playing a video stored on my workstations internal 3TB WD Green hard-drive. This is how the problem started. The video playback froze about a minute into it. I tried playing several other media files stored on the same disk and all the videos consistently stopped playing after about a minute. I then tried a media file stored on a different 2TB hard-drive. It played without issue. I tried several other videos stored on the 2TB hard-drive and I had no problems with them at all.
I then tried copying a large 7GB file from the 3TB hard-drive to my desktop. It worked fine, then I tried copying a random folder full of videos containing about 13GB of media. As soon as I started I got the following error:
An unexpected error is keeping you from copying the file. If you continue to receive this error, you can use the error code to search for help with this problem.

Linux terminal Server for windows client web browsing?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: May 3, 2004
Just a strange idea I had... and wondering if it is feesible or if someone has already done it.
I used to work in an accounting firm that used Citrix to serve all of there accounting apps to remote offices and it was pretty cool. The coolest thing was I could run linux and using the ICA client I was still able to run Lotus Notes and even NT server admin tools.
I know that there is a Linux Terminal Server Project and I have checked out their website and from what I understand they are concerned with (and have been quite successfull with) connecting to a linux terminal server and run x windows on a thin client.
What I would like to do is block access to web services on my windows xp clients using "Internet Connection Firewall" that comes with XP so that the users can't surf the web with IE. This would save me most of the headaches that spyware, adware and viruses cause me on my windows clients.
Then to give them internet access I would like to be able to give them

How to perform mathematical operations on linux terminal?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 3, 2014
Following is the command which is used to perform the mathematical operations on terminal:
echo "10.25*12" | bc -l
The answer will be 123.00 for the above mentioned command.
With the minor change in echo "Write here any mathematical operation", we can perform any mathematical operation.
echo "25-12" | bc -l
echo "25+12" | bc -l
echo "25*12" | bc -l
echo "25/12" | bc -l
echo "25%12" | bc -l
If you need more help, please put your questions herewith this post.If you know more things about this share your ideas with me.
From which file (not terminal command) can I read onboard GeForce GPU temperature?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 20, 2012
I need to read the temperature of my GPU right from a "file" (actually right from the "files" used to communicate directly with the hardware), not from a Terminal command. It's an onboard nvidia geforce go 6150. Where can I find the temperature? Couldn't find it on /sys/class/thermal/ because the structure seems confusing.
For the ones interested in more info:
I've installed lubuntu on a hp pavillion dv6000 (which suffers from the dreaded problem with the chipset, which heats so much it cracks the solder joints and needs to be re-soldered). For obvious reasons, I want to monitor the GPU temperature. On lubuntu there's LXpanel, which has a temperature measuring widget which works normally for the CPU, reading from /sys/class/thermal/thermal_zone0/temp (celsius, number such as 35000).
I've tried to make this widget read from Terminal commands such as "nvidia-smi -q -d TEMPERATURE" (properly filtered with grep); also tried "nvidia-settings -q [gpu:0]/G
How do I install pure Linux kernel(command line interface)?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 8, 2013
Hello! This is my first post. Im wondering how I can install pure Linux, with no graphics. I haven't found any posts on this yet. I am a big fan of retro computers and would love to have a Mac or PC that works with terminal only. It would also be nice to know how to install a window manager/GUI, as I would also like to build a Linux operating system from scratch. Linux operating systems that boot from command line interface (eg, BackTrack). All help is greatly appreciated!

Using terminal command sudo aptget "program" install to install software
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 4, 2012
Have just installed Mint 14.1 as a change from KDE 13. Only been working with Linux Mint a month or so. KDE had a root terminal I could log into and use - Mint 14.1 doesn't seem to have one. And everytime I type command "sudo apt-get "name of software" install" I get error message that I need a sudo password and it won't take my login pw - in fact, it won't let me even type anything. How to I get root privileges in Mint 14.1? Any suggestions would be much appreciated. By the way, Linux Mint documentation stinks.
