[K12OSN] Thin-client manager not working - ideas?

Hi Dave--

Thanks for asking this question. It actually shed light on another problem I'm having with VNC. I'm going to try the directions you referenced.

Would you be amenable to a visitor? I'd like to come see what you're doing there in Vassalboro. I know I could be doing better things here and I'm sure you've told us in class, but I guess I'd like to see it in action! I would have to wait until school started... I'm still trying to get set up here. If not, no worries!

If you get responses to your question outside the K12OSN list (which is how I got it) can you forward them to me? I'd like to use the thin client manager also.

Last issue and I'm going home (it's 3 a.m.)  I've just finished getting 2
Edubuntu servers up and running....they are in dhcp-load balance/failover
mode (working fine)...clients boot and log in fine, however screen
blanking, sharing, and monitoring in thin-client manager is not working. 
Now...one thing to take into consideration...I am running Samba/LDAP (on
another box using the smbldap-installer on Ubuntu server which I also
installed this evening) as my point of authentication.  It's working fine.
 (there is one little issue and this may have something to do with
it...when I enter...

chroot /opt/ltsp/i386

I get a little message about (see below)

id: cannot find name for group ID 512

Other than that...everything seems to work fine.  Except I can't seem to
get full functionality regarding sharing and viewing screens in
Thin-Client Manager.  I followed the directions in 
https://wiki.edubuntu.org/InstallX11VncOnLtspClients  to the letter.  I'm
at a loss.  Anyone got any ideas?  What am I missing?  I'd really like to
get this working ASAP as I need to get ready for the new school year.
