I'm working on an ltsp 5 server based on a xubuntu 8.04 installation.
Thin clients can work but I have a localdev (usb) that needs to get working.
I followed procedures described here for troubleshooting: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebugLocalDev
Everything is ok up until the last step, I'm unable to mount the usb manually using the ssh command.
root@ltsp_thin_client:/etc/ssh# ssh -X -s /var/run/ldm_socket_vt7_10.0.2.167 10.0.2.167 "/usr/sbin/ltspfsmounter /tmp add"
(However, I can mount the usb stick with mount command on the client)
I get the error that my socket's name or service is unknown.
the "socket" exists: ldm_socket_vt7_10.0.2.167
this is what I see in the ldm folder although I don't know if it is related?
root@ltsp:/etc/ssh# cat /var/run/ldm/10.0.2.167
I see "gdm" in here, is that normal?
Am I right if I say that ldm or gdm is some kind of logon manager that starts before the actual window manager is started (after the logon?)
So do I need to install this ldm on the server or can I keep the gdm? Is ldm only needed in the client? (chroot environment in /opt/ltsp/i386)
Thanks for any help.
ps: it seems that after plugging in the stick, I see it becomes mounted in the /media/<user>/usbdisk directory. However, when I open that directory with the filemanager of the client (thunar), I get a message that the folder does not exist and it disappears. Also on the server side, I could see it was mounted as follows:
ltspfs on /media/lieven/usbdisk-sda1 type fuse.ltspfs (rw,nosuid,nodev,user=lieven)
And after clicking it in the client, this mount has disappeared.
the client still shows the usb as mounted:
/dev/sda1 on /var/run/drives/usbdisk-sda1 type vfat (rw,relatime,fmask=0022,dmask=0022,codepage=cp437,iocharset=iso8859-1)
But that folder /var/run/drives does not exist.
Ideally, I would like to have a new icon on the thinclient that opens the usb-disk when clicked.
