Re: [Question #195888]: Configuring for multiple servers


Question #195888 on Epoptes changed:

Alkis Georgopoulos proposed the following answer:
> b) create an /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/local/usr/sbin/epoptes-client wrapper,
with the following contents:

Ouch, /etc/xdg/autostart/epoptes-client.desktop contains a hardcoded /usr/sbin/epoptes-client path, so that won't work, you'd need to mv that file and create the launcher in /usr/sbin/epoptes-client instead, which would in turn exec /usr/sbin/epoptes-client.real.
And you'd also need to do that in /usr/sbin/epoptes-client too, not only in the chroot.

If you don't care for both teachers to be able to control the clients _before_ login, but only after login, you could alternatively do the following:
sudo mv /usr/sbin/epoptes-client /usr/sbin/epoptes-client.real
sudo vi /usr/sbin/epoptes-client
case $(hostname) in
        export SERVER=server1
        export SERVER=server2
exec /usr/sbin/epoptes-client.real

(and comment out SERVER in /etc/default/epoptes-client)
