Does anyone know how to start an internet cafe using linux from scratch. I have now linux experience or know how when it comes to setting up this kind if config. Could someone please help either via sending step by step guides etc on how to complete my task.
i would suggest checking out ltsp.org they have some ill ass tools.
ltsp is the linux terminal server project so you have like 50 $ comps at each station and then they are all hooked up to a main server so you save money then people have submitted tools to monitor and payment system shit...
What I would like to do is use linux lycoris or mandrake for desktops machines connected to a server that is then connected to the internet with a good firewall or similar. I would have the users checking emails and surfing the web etc.. with options to download info and print or burn it to disk etc.. . Games and online gaming is something that I have looked at but am not sure how the linux os will handle wine and windows games via internet and intranet. For now I would like to get a simple prototype up and running using PT233 or 400mhz machies conneted to a server (one file server, one print server, one web server) I think from reading that I would need the above servers and a firewall to make all things work properly and smoothly.
But as mentioned before I do not know how to setup the whole computer side of the cafe.
I don't think it really matters which distro you use for your base since they can all be tweaked in the same way should needs be... editing the files manually. Also, as a suggestion, you should consider Galeon in full screen with only the nav bar (buttons and url thing) on screen.
I don't think there are like 'tutorials' on setting up an internet cafe, but you could seek some professional advice i'm sure....or just experiment with 3-4 computers in your garage or something to test out how everything works, once you are satisfied you can start laying out everything....choosing what to install and what not too etc etc...
Where are you planning to be setting up this place?
