Notes on LTSP clients

here we will document various tips and tricks regarding our LTSP thin clients

  • sound is working fine if output is configured to use ALSA
  • USB sticks and HDs are automatically mounted to either /media/<USERNAME>/<DEVICENAME>/ or /tmp/.<USERNAME>-ltspfs/<DEVICENAME>/ if they are partitioned. To remove, wait some seconds for the write cache to clear, then just unplug
  • if you misspell your password at login, it takes some time for the login screen to recover. It might be faster to power cycle the Thin Client.
  • the login screen does not remember the session. If you'd like to change your window manager permanently, you can create a .xsessionrc file to start the WM of your choice.
