pointer black with 2008 R2

Anybody seen this?

http://sourceforge.net/tracker/index.php?func=detail&aid=2858665&group_id=24366&atid=381347

The pointer appears as a black silhouette when using rdesktop to
connect to Server 2008 R2, and under some circumstances, Win7. It
appears to be fixed in rdesktop svn:

http://www.opensource-archive.org/showthread.php?p=136260

So my question is how difficult it would be to install the svn version
of rdesktop in my chroot. I'm guessing not super easy. Anybody know,
or have a better idea for getting this fixed, other than not using
2008 R2?

This sounds like a problem that I have seen with via and openchrome drivers, 
and that the workaround was to set the following in xorg.conf [Device] 
section:

  Option "SWcursor" "true"

To do this via lts.conf would be something like:

X_OPTION_01          = "\"SWcursor\"  \"true\""

My only concern would be that xorg.conf doesn't seem to be used these days, 
and I can't remember how to resurrect it for specific clients CONFIGURE_X = 
True/False?  Anyone?

X_OPTION_01 should be supported. gets a little tricky with exactly how to quote
the " characters, but that looks right to me.

recent versions of ltsp (approximately 5.1.41+) will automatically set
"CONFIGURE_X = true" if you specify other options that need an xorg.conf to be
generated.

live well,

Thanks for the suggestion, however this did not fix the problem in my
case. I believe your syntax to be correct, as I am already using a
similar option successfully so that I have:

X_DEVICE_OPTION_01="\"DRI\" \"false\""
X_DEVICE_OPTION_02="\"SWcursor\" \"true\""

multiple Ekiga instances on one server

When I try to register multiple Ekiga accounts on the same server
(different users, different thin clients, but it's all running on the
server), I get errors:

"Error while starting the listener for the H.323 protocol"

and

"Error while starting the listener for the SIP protocol"

It seems that each instance of Ekiga is attempting the use the same
ports for SIP and H.323.  This makes sense, but is there any way around
it?  If not then my LTSP server can only run a single instance of Ekiga.

Re: multiple Ekiga instances on one server

I do not think there is any workaround to this problem.
Actually it is the same problem as with running multiple NetMeeting 
instances on Windows terminal server.
You can run multiple *client* instances, but only one server instance.
I am not familiar with ekiga, but there should be an option whether you 
intend to use the server part of the application or not....

What about something like siproxd (http://siproxd.sourceforge.net)?
I've never tried it, but it seems like if you could get multiple
instances of ekiga to run, then point them to siproxd as a proxy...

We replaced our Vista terminal servers with Windows 7, then replaced

Slowness (mainly with Firefox) on Jaunty

Hey everybody,
(Apologies to the moderator for the first post in HTML, won't happen again)

I had LTSP running on 8.04 for a long time, and just recently upgraded
the server to 9.04. Most everything is running better, and xorg is now
reading the monitors and setting display resolutions properly, which
is a nice bonus.
The downside is that certain actions are fairly slow that weren't
before. Mostly it is in select dropdowns within firefox, but dropdown
menus anywhere in Ubuntu are slow to respond. I've read a bit that
Jaunty had problems with intel video drivers and that Jaunty had
issues with CPU scaling, which are my only initial thoughts. There are
some instructions out there on messing with X and the intel drivers to
try to address the issues, but I didn't know if there was a more
specific LTSP solution, or if it was a common problem with Jaunty.
Here is my lts.conf (it's very minimal). The LTSP server is a Dell
Poweredge 1950 with a quadcore intel xeon 2.66ghz with 4gb of ram
(soon to be 8). The thin clients (6 of them currently, soon to be 9)
are all MSI Wind PCs (1.6ghz atom processor, 2gb ram, intel GMA 950
onboard video card). The LTSP server also does some other work, like
samba, and a LAMP stack for some local web apps.

[default]
     MODULE_01 = usbkbd
     SCREEN_07=ldm
     SCREEN_08=shell

So I guess my questions are: is this a common problem, and are there
any obvious steps I should take to address it or to isolate it?
