Hello All,

I have K12Linux running in Centos7/Mate.

But I have to manualy switch the session manager to Mate on the login screen.
How can I set Mate as system default?

Greetings, Johan

Hello,

I don't use CentOS 7, but I tested it on Fedora 20 – it works.
Create or edit if exists /home/user/.dmrc file. Store inside the
following line:

Session=mate

Comment eventual other „Session=” entry.
Be sure that .dmrc file has 644 mode.

The second one solution is proper entry in lts.conf file:

LDM_SESSION = mate xfce gnome kde

If "mate" keeps the first position "mate" will be default.

Best regards,
Radek

Hello All,

since I added some localapps following this guide:

http://wiki.ltsp.org/wiki/Tips_and_Tricks/Maintenance#Update_a_Client_Image

I think the booting process of my thinclients takes too long.
I'm wondering if it would be possible to chroot into the environment, and remove unneeded packages
like language packages, and by doing so speed up the boot process.

Does anyone have experience with this?

Greetings, Johan

Johan,

I use thin client image with a lot additional packages (including: Libre
Office, Gparted, Xfburn, Firefox, Totem, SMPlayer, Krusader, Thunar,
Evolution, Ekiga, Brasero, PDFEdit and many others). Most of them I
installed for tests, but in fact, they are and they work. (Permanently I
use Gparted, Xfburn, Thunar, Krusader.)
I didn't note booting thin client slack. I don't use NBD thin client
image.

Best regards,
Radek
