Re: [K12OSN] local device



So it would appear it's mounting correctly, crew just doesn't give you the nice desktop icons. Maybe that's a setting you can adjust.

Let me correct myself.

Using Xfce environment I can see both devices (USB stick and DVD/CD) after changing directory to /media/mu_username/ (file manager), but I can't see local devices' icons.

Using GNOME all work normally (including local devices' icons).

Best regards,
Radek

Let me add something else.
I can't umount these local devices as a user. I can see dialog window with information that only root cant umount.
It is true - on thin client, after switching on to shell and "su" command, I can umount theses devices.
Notwithstanding, I expected that user can umount theses device in GUI too.

Best regards,
Radek

Jeff,

Good question. My experience with local device confirms that local device (including DVD/CD) could by managed by fuse mechanism.

My experience:
My favourite GUI is Xfce. Using Xfce I can see on thin client local USB stick after change the directory to /media/my_username/usb_stick_name, but I don't see DVD/CD device.

When I log in with GNOME I can see both icons on my desktop - USB_stick and DVD/CD, and I can use both local devices.

So it seems that fuse mechanism doesn't support Xfce environment the best. I switched on in Xfce environment "Running GNOME service within log in" option, but nothing helped.

Best regards,
Radek

Yes, that is true.  fuse is leveraged to do some magic and remotely
mount the client USB stick on the server.

DVD drives aren't quite the same.  Take, for example, an audio CD.  You
can't mount that and export it as a filesystem.

So the question really becomes: does LTSP even look for optical devices
and try to remotely mount them using fuse?   I don't have an answer to
that, but IME LTSP5 does not do this.  That said I haven't tried
connecting a client DVD recently and then setting the group to fuse.
Hopefully someone can chime in on that.

Jeff
