local device support with ltsp (ltspfs)

i have working ltsp and ltspfs packages targeted for etch.

in /etc/apt/sources.list, add:

deb http://llama.freegeek.org/~vagrant/debian/ unstable/

apt-get update
apt-get install ltspfs

in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/apt/sources.list, add:

deb http://llama.freegeek.org/~vagrant/debian/ unstable/

chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get update
chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 apt-get install ltsp-client ltspfsd

in /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf, add:


load the fuse module: modprobe fuse

add your user (on the server) to the fuse group.

boot a thin-client and log in (using ldm).

plug in a device.

ls /media/USER/*

icons might appear on the desktop- i haven't tested this yet.

also, if you can have several different users logged in with devices
plugged in, check if they see each other's devices (need to confirm if
that's a bug or not).

i tested with a usb stick, but not IDE cdrom drives of floppy drives. so
if you could test those devices, too, that would be good.

enjoy. :)

will hopefully upload new ltsp packages tomorrow.

live well,
