Advice on Setting up LTSP?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 7, 2009
Hi. I was recently charged with the task of finding a budgetary solution for a computer lab, and came to the conclusion that an LTSP server with thin clients would be the best bet.
The problem is that I can't find any comprehensive and easy-to-follow guides to set this up. I think I've got the hardware side of it down; so far I have 10 terminals with no disks or fans, 1 server with 2 network cards, 1 network hub and 1 router.
I've done a few tests, and I just can't figure out how to force the clients to detect the presence of a PXE boot server. They just bypass my server and try to connect to the router.
If anybody has done this before and has insight it would be much appreciated. Also if you have a suggestion for which distro I should use (so far I've only tried Edubuntu) or if you have a link to an easy-to-follow tutorial, I would be very grateful.

I have recently set up and have got reliably running an ltsp server and client on Ubuntu Mate 14.04. Though, I have had considerable difficulty getting it up and running. I initially followed this instructional (https://www.thefanclub.co.za/how-to/...t-thin-clients). It works, but I have had to do some extra stuff to get it going.
Firstly, I had to remove the network manager and then reinstall network-manager-gnome. I also had to leave network management to "false" in the network manager config file. No idea why, just trial and error showed this to be the case. It I didn't reinstall the gnome manager, then the ltsp dhcpd server would not start no matter what. Similarly, if I did not set network management to false.
Secondly, I had to copy the ltsp dhcp.conf file's contents over to the etc/dhcpd/dhcp.conf file. Unless those contents are in there as well, it will not work. Also, I need to have a non-ltsp full fat client machine physically linked to eth0 in order for my dhc
LTSP setting up large number of users
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 4, 2012
I'm setting up a school network with LTSP for 40+ computers, and about 170 users. I'm using Edubuntu 12.04, defaulting to the Gnome desktop.
I have not found an easy way to en-masse create a large number of accounts where the default menus, desktop icons, Firefox bookmarks, etc. are predefined.
What I have tried:
1. Set up a defaultaccount user, and copy to /etc/skel. This works as I would like except it is very time consuming to manually create 170 users, and manually copy all 170 passwords to another document so I can give it to the teachers, etc. This just isn't practical, there must be an easier way.
Also, whenever I install some new "admin only" sort of software, it appears as a menu item in all the student accounts as well. So I need to go back and remove it from all 170 accounts manually.
2. I've also done this. Use a school spreadsheet with the students' names, which automatically creates a password based on the name, save as a CSV file, and then use th

hi there all i have a home headless (laptop with broken screen) file/print server and as i have an old p3-400 laptop i thought i will have a go at setting up an ltsp server and use the old laptop as thin client. the server has a Xubuntu installation with webmin and vncserver and i have installed ltsp-server-standalone and did sudo ltsp-build-client as suggested on the ubuntu wiki pages.
now it suggested changing the ip address in dhcp.conf but i cant find a good howto/guide to learn from on how to modify this file.
The thing is that i have allready a home network of 1 winXP and the xubuntu server and the modem/router acts as dhcp server on 10.0.0.1-50 network addresses. as i am just playing with the ltsp setup for learning purpose i dont want to change all my network settings etc.
does the dhcp server has to be on the ltsp server?
any web pages explaining ltsp setting up for beginners?
any idea what i need to change in the dhcp.conf?
Setting up a Debian 7 server
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: July 11, 2013
I have some general questions about setting up a Debian 7 server for home use. I was going to build a server using old hardware but today someone gave me an older Dell Pentium 4 1.8ghz system with 1.5Gb RAM, 80GB hard drive, and 10/100 NIC. I assume this would be enough to run Debian server but I was wondering if there would be any advantage to using something like a dual CPU motherboard. I could also get a case that will hold multiple hard drives should I decide to go with a RAID array.
The main thing I would use the server for would be as a proxy/firewall but I would also like to learn some Apache and MYSQL administration. I won't be using it to do any "real work" but I also don't want it running so slow that it's a pain to use. I don't mind spending a little money if it would make a difference. For instance, I have a basic D-Link broadband router (EBR-2310) that I'll be using to connect another desktop and laptop. Do you think this would be enough or should I purchase a
[SOLVED] Help setting up Remote desktop server 12.04 LTS
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 11, 2012
I'm trying to set up Remote server to access remote desktop from my mac os x lion.
I'm using Chicken of the VNC client on the mac. I'm just trying to connect on my local network now. The Ubuntu pc is 192.168.1.106. I have set Chicken on the VNC to connect to this ip address and display 0 and I get Authentication Failed. If I use display 1 I get Connection refused: connect() I think these are ports 5900 and 5901.
So I'm at a loss as to what to do next.

Setting up a home studio Ubuntu Studio vs. JAD
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 14, 2008
I recently decided to set up a small home studio in order for my band to be a bit more independent. Right now I'm searching for the right software.
I want to use a dedicated Linux Distro for that purpose. However I'm not sure which one to choose. I have experience with both Ubuntu and openSuSE, so thought about Ubuntu Studio or JAD.
Which one would You suggest? Which one is better/easier to use/more fluffy?
And BTW. can anybody suggest a good laptop sound card suitable for music editing that would be well supported under either of those distros?
Setting up XBMCubuntu as Server* Help/Opinions
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: February 20, 2013
Hello all, this is my first post on this forum and first server build in general. To be short and sweet I've been researching on what to install on my current setup and have a few questions as to what would work best.
Here is what I want to do:
1) Use server as HTPC on my main tv
2) Stream video and transcode to PS3
3) Connect to Windows PC for file sharing
4) Remote desktop connection to set things up, etc.
Here is what I have come up with:
1) Install XBMCubuntu as OS
2) Install PS3 Media Server in background for streaming/transcoding
3) Link to windows file share (sambia? not sure)
4) Figure out how to remotely connect. lol
Basically I am looking for criticism, opinions, etc on whether or not this will work. I'm completely new to Linux but there seems to be a lot of support out there and i'm willing to put in the time.
Your help will be greatly appreciated before I take the plunge. Right now nothing is installed on the server, it is freshly built.
