Managed Linux Workstations
Our group developed a Debian/GNU Linux based automated setup for workstations. On the managed workstations we install Ubuntu Desktop as the preferred flavour.
Several Readmes offer more information:
- Software on the D-PHYS Linux Computers
- How to use USB Harddisk or USB Memorysticks
- General Overview over Linux at the Department of Physics
- VPN with Linux
- Restore Home, Mail, Groupshare on Linux
- WiFi on Linux
- Printing on Linux
The general workstations page shows you the locations of the publicly accessible rooms equipped with our Linux workstations.
News about our Linux workstations are distributed on our newsticker and can (and should!) be subscribed to.
Most common problems
The default desktop environment is GNOME Shell.
If after working a while, you can't login anymore, it is most probably you have run into quota in your user home directory.
