[K12OSN] metacity does not on client



Hello all,

I have recently installed a fresh LTSP server on Fedora 12.  Everything appears to be working, except that upon login, users do not have any metacity window controls (close, minimise, maximise, etc.).  Metacity loads fine from the terminal on the client, but it does not do so automatically upon login as it should.  I have tested this even with a fresh user configuration.  Any ideas on how to fix this (other than making a logon script to start metacity... this will work as a stop-gap, but does not address the problem as to why it is not loading as it should)?

Thanks in advance!

Seema,

What facility did you use to modify your existing linux user accounts to
allow Samba access? Did you hand edit the perms of home folders,etc?
Here is a very good how to on setting this up via the gui contained in
Centos 5 (if this is the OS you are using).

Without a doubt a pam module has gotten clobbered, once you get the
dreaded "try and log on with this configuration"..or something to that
effect. (The voice of experience speaking here).

WEBMIN works very well for bringing all your Samba and Linux to
authenticate to a Windows 2003 server and the like.
Let us know your progress.

Take Care,
Barry Cisna

Hello All,

Been out of the loop for a while now,in regards to wireless boot
possibilities for TC's. I have seen as of late several low cost TC's
that can be gotten with onboard wireless modules.
I'm not smart enough,but wonder if anyone would be able to figure
something out in a script to add to the rc.d folder of the ltsp
root,that would simply initialize the onboard wifi of the TC, and try
and scan 'the area' for any available AP,and connect to it transparently
at boot time of the TC.
This would be one more nice uncluttering feature of the classroom to
pitch TC's,,,:).
With the miriad of ever changing wireless onboard chips and changing
specifications,I am sure this would be a very big challenge to make it
actually happen.
Ideas?

Take Care,
Barry Cisna
