[Bug 1587576] Re: Reconnecting feature in Multiseat systems



To be more precise, Userful Multiseat doesn't use a modified X server
(at least not in the top layer). Instead, it runs Xorg itself nested on
top of another X server (like Xephyr) using a proprietary driver, which
is mainly what xf86-video-nested (currently umnaintained; I've forked it
at https://github.com/lbssousa/xf86-video-nested) is supposed to do. The
modified X server by Userful, which may be needed for some hardware,
runs in the bottom layer only.


Are you using the same Epoptes version for both server and clients? Are
you sure you have installed version 0.5.10 in all of them? How did you
install them? Do you use some PPA?

  Reconnecting feature in Multiseat systems

Status in Epoptes:

Bug description:
  Hi, I have a little issue with the reconnecting feature.
  Sometimes, I don't know why, all the clients just disconnect from the server. after wait a while, the reconnect (apparently) works, but here we use a Multiseat system, which is 1 computer for 3 stations, works pretty well with epoptes. The machine turns on, the epoptes show a red icon (Yeah, just one), only after login, the server show all the icons with the screen thumbnail on it.

  The problem is, when the clients lost connection with the server, the
  icons disappear and after that, appears just a red one. If we manually
  logout and login again, or reopen epoptes-client in each station, it
  reappears in the server screen.

  There is any way to automatic reconnect all stations to the current

  We have 5 Machines to 15 stations running "Linux Educacional 5.0"
  based in Ubuntu 12.04 LTS and Epoptes 0.5.10

  Sorry for my english, I'm not a native speaker.
