Default printer by terminal

Hi,
I have two areas, each with it's own printer.  I run Ubuntu 10.04. The 
printers are network printers and everyone uses the spooler on the 
server. One of my peoples asked me today if it is possible to have a 
printer default by terminal.

He would like the upstairs terminals to print to the upstairs printer 
and the downstairs terminals to the downstairs printer.

Is there a way to do this in lts.conf ?  I looked at the settings, and 
it looked like the printer settings were only pertinent to a local 
printer hooked directly up to the terminal.

This is more of a curiosity than a real need, and I know we all have too 
much to deal with as it is.

thank you,
Andy

Re: Default printer by terminal

If you want to do this in lts.conf, you can use:

LDM_PRINTER_DEFAULT

Set that to the name of the queue. You would have to set it for each terminal.

Alternatively, you can use a server-side script that sets the default
printer based upon the LTSP_CLIENT variable.

win32-loader.exe: easily add gPXE to the Windows boot manager

win32-loader.exe [1] is a Debian project, similar to Ubuntu's Wubi, that
uses the Windows boot manager to load a Linux kernel.

We sent a patch upstream [2] to allow win32-loader to load gPXE [3]
instead of a Linux kernel. It has been accepted, but since gPXE is not
yet in Debian one needs to manually compile win32-loader.exe to get gPXE
support (without changing the sources).

You can download a precompiled win32-loader.exe with a statically linked
gpxe-1.0.lkrn from [4].
If you run it in Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista/2008/7 and select
"PXE mode: install a PXE loader to allow remote kernel loading.",
you'll get a "PXE - Network boot" option in the Windows boot manager,
which you can use to easily turn Windows machines into LTSP clients.

very interesting! thanks for doing that!
I hope we can define the boot option message? It can be useful to set it to 
something like: "restore windows backup" and then boot on DRBL, CloneZilla, or 
another hardisk image server.

errors while updating chroot

Using Ubuntu 10.04 and following the guide here:

 https://help.ubuntu.com/community/UbuntuLTSP/UpdatingChroot

I got errors while running apt-get dist-upgrade in the chroot:

Setting up dbus (1.2.16-2ubuntu4.1) ...
The system user `messagebus' already exists. Exiting.
Failed to open connection to "system" message bus: Failed to connect
to socket /var/run/dbus/system_bus_socket: No such file or directory
dpkg: error processing dbus (--configure):
 subprocess installed post-installation script returned error exit status 1
dpkg: dependency problems prevent configuration of consolekit:
 consolekit depends on dbus (>= 1.1.2); however:
  Package dbus is not configured yet.
dpkg: error processing consolekit (--configure):
 dependency problems - leaving unconfigured
No apport report written because the error message indicates its a
followup error from a previous failure.
Errors were encountered while processing:
 dbus
 consolekit
E: Sub-process /usr/bin/dpkg returned an error code (1)

I guess this has something to do with the fact that there is no
/var/run because I``m working in a chroot. Is there a fix for this?

Sure, you can either change it in the win32-loader source code, or you
can follow the Microsoft KB article for changing boot.ini settings:

i'd also recommend using the "ltsp-chroot" utility rather than "chroot
/opt/ltsp/i386". it handles setting LTSP_HANDLE_DAEMONS=false and possibly
other things needed in the future, and has some other useful options like
mounting the package cache.

live well,
