angelotI'm running edubuntu-server 7.10 as an ltsp-server trying to play video with vlc on the clients.03:33
angelotI have no problem playing mp3's with vlc from clients nor video with totem, but video with vlc I can't.03:33
angelotVLC media player 0.8.6c Janus03:34
angelotThe program '.' received an X Window System error.03:34
angelotThis probably reflects a bug in the program.03:34
angelotThe error was 'BadAccess (attempt to access private resource denied)'.03:34
angelot  (Details: serial 57 error_code 10 request_code 148 minor_code 1)03:34
angelot  (Note to programmers: normally, X errors are reported asynchronously;03:34
angelot   that is, you will receive the error a while after causing it.03:34
angelot   To debug your program, run it with the --sync command line03:34
angelot   option to change this behavior. You can then get a meaningful03:34
angelot   backtrace from your debugger if you break on the gdk_x_error() function.)03:34
angelotI belive this to be an ltsp-problem running X on thin clients03:34
angelotI found a soulution on vlc-forums: The solution is to start X with MIT-SHM extension disable, and allowModXvidtune.03:35
angelotHow can I do this?03:35
angelotThis is my /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf03:36
Kamping_Kaiserangelot, dont paste03:36
Kamping_Kaiser!paste | angelot03:36
ubotuangelot: pastebin is a service to post large texts so you don't flood the channel. The Ubuntu pastebin is at http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org (make sure you give us the URL for your paste - see also the #ubuntu channel topic)03:36
angelotOK :-)03:36
Kamping_Kaisernot sure about your query - you may ave to wait a while (most devs are in europe iirc)03:37
johnnyyou do not want to disable MIT-SHM i bet03:38
johnnysounds like a bad idea03:38
angelotThis is the paste-bin: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/55441/03:42
angelotjohnny, do you have any clues how I can make vlc working - disable MIT-SHM or not?03:45
johnnynever tried03:46
angelotOK :-)03:46
johnnybut i think it may impact your performance03:47
johnnyi could be wrong about that03:47
johnnybut it sounds important03:47
johnnytry mplayer?03:47
angelotI've just installed mplayer and I try that, but how can I write lts.conf to try to disable the MIT-SHM extension and allowModXvidtune?03:51
johnnyyou can't03:51
johnnyyou have to edit the generated xorg03:52
johnnyor provide your own custom one03:52
angelotJonny: mplayer are running fine, except for some framedropping due to lack of resources on the thin client.04:39
angelotI have no xorg.conf in my ltsp-setup, but the server have one. Do I have to edit the servers x-settings to get the clients to work well??04:41
johnnyit doesn't use that one04:41
johnnyit generates one per client04:42
angelotWhere can I find this one?04:42
angelotWhere can I find the generated file for the thin clients?04:46
johnnyit's generated on the fly04:50
johnnywhen the client loads04:50
johnnyyou can provide a custom one per thin client04:50
johnnyi suppose04:50
angelotI thought this was done using lts.conf04:52
johnnythat's very basic stuff04:53
angelotIn mine I have some default values, but you can specify one setting for each MAC-address...04:53
IsleVeganthe single terminal i have connecting to the server locks up after a period of inactivity05:00
IsleVeganwell, it doesn't come out of a black / blank display state05:00
angelotIsleVegan: Seems to be an X-problem....05:02
IsleVeganwhat can i do about that?05:03
angelotDoes your terminal connect to the server using ltsp?05:03
IsleVegani'm using the terminal now05:03
angelotThen you can set some dafaults in /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf05:04
IsleVeganok, i'll look at that05:04
IsleVeganthanks for your help, i'm looking now05:05
angelotSee http://www.edubuntu.org/GettingStarted and scroll down to "Fine-tuning the thin client setup"05:07
IsleVeganthere doesn't appear to be an lts.conf file in that location05:07
angelotBy default, I don't think the lts.conf-file exist.05:08
angelotI had to make one myself....05:08
IsleVegannot sure what to put there, maybe i'll find that in the url you gave me05:08
angelotHer you'll find mine: http://paste.ubuntu-nl.org/55442/05:09
IsleVeganshould i change this SERVER= to the ip address of my server?05:13
IsleVeganends in 18305:13
achandrashekarhello. I have a question regarding a multiserver setup of edubuntu with ltsp05:47
achandrashekarspecifically it is regarding a /home mounted on nfs05:47
achandrashekarand along the lines of that setup i plan to use it for the ENTIRE environment05:47
achandrashekarwith 3 servers05:48
achandrashekarcan someone give me a walk through or how to set it up?05:48
IsleVeganthanks for earlier angelot06:12
IsleVegani appreciate your time06:12
IsleVeganthere may be other issues with this computer06:12
IsleVeganthe hard drive may be dead / dying or whatever, it's all a new setup except the hard drive06:13
angelotIsleVegan: No problem. It was worth trying - I had the same problem with my 6.04 desktop...06:32
IsleVeganwell, i'm booted with puppy linux now on the terminal, was getting frustrated with problems from the server06:34
brizbenhello can some one tell me if there is any "math tutor" soft ware on edubuntu?08:51
theunixgeekI followed http://ubuntu-tutorials.com/2007/07/18/removing-kde-icons-in-gnome-remove-gnome-icons-in-kde/ to remove KDE  apps from the GNOME menus and vice versa; how do I undo it.14:54
alien__hi all17:02
