Re: [K12OSN] Text-only sessions in K12



I tried that - I set SCREEN_01 = shell in lts.conf for that particular
workstation, but it only opened and shell with no login, and therefore no
access to file server or /home directories etc.

How do you set a user session to open a terminal text-only session ?
