I've a similar thing going for our primary school (190 kids). Upper 
primary have individual logins, but ALL our PCs have a yellow sticker on 
them with a name like Y302 (Year 3's second PC) and these are usernames 
that our junior school kids can use to login with - and they don't have

> Hallo, it's the first time that I use this mailing list. I hope don't make mistakes using it! I've installed k12ltsp in the primary school informatic lab, where I teach. I meet two problems.<br>1) I want to use a "classroom login" not an individual login (it is not important in a primary school to have a personal login, it is most important the class work). So I've added some users as:<br>classe_prima_a (in english: class_first_a)<br>classe_prima_b<br>classe_seconda_a<br>etc.<br>Every time that a client make the login the server respond something of this kind: "you are already connected, do you want connected another time?"<br>I answer yes every time and every client display the desktop of the classroom that I wish. Perfect? No, because now start the problem: if I launch openoffice writer on pc n°1 it open a session on pc n°1 but if also pc n°2 launch openoffice writer there will be another session on pc n° 1. If also all the seven clients launch openoffice writer all the s
> ssion are opened on pc n°1.<br>Could be a solution? It is not very easy administrate 260 or more children, and it is not useful...<br><br>2) The second problem. The animation. I am amazing because a big and fat program as openoffice or mozilla starts in few seconds (from a client) and works fine and a more simple program as tuxmath works with a slowness that make it unuseful. <br>I tought the problem was the hub and so I tried to connect only one client with the server with a cross-cable, but the problem was quite the same. The velocity on the client was 1/10 of the same program on the server.<br>Are there some tricks for make faster this kind of programs? In a primary school they are very important....<br><br>Thanks for the help!<br><br>_______________________________________________<br>K12OSN mailing list<br>K12OSN at redhat.com<br>https://www.redhat.com/mailman/listinfo/k12osn<br>For more info see <http://www.k12os.org><br>
