    Thinstation - Config File tweeks / problem

    Hi,

    I am playing with Thinstation and i am pretty impressed i just have a few issues.

    1. Although i have set the resolution to 1024 x 768 in the config file it wont set as that.

    2. How would i please set it so it always asks for a username and password on connection like on the attached?

    If anyone can help i would appreciate it. I have attached my config file.

    Thanks

    SCREEN_RESOLUTION="1024x768" looks correct - are you sure the config file is being read? (if not it will default to the .buildtime config.
    perhaps the correct graphics driver isn't being used?
    also - put "-a 24" in SESSION_0_RDESKTOP_OPTIONS

    we found that on some of our via motherboards the bios occasionally needs a reset otherwise it defaults t 640x480 - no idea why...

    try putting "-u" here to set an empty userid
    SESSION_0_RDESKTOP_OPTIONS="-d 'testnet' -f -x l -r sound:'local'"

    I know its being read as when i make changed to other areas things change. I have tried on a VMware virtual machine and a Dell Latitude D620

    When i put this in nothing seems to happen.
    SESSION_0_RDESKTOP_OPTIONS="-a 24 -d 'testnet' -f -x l -r sound:'local'"

    try putting "-u" here to set an empty userid
    SESSION_0_RDESKTOP_OPTIONS="-d 'testnet' -f -x l -r sound:'local'"
    I tired the following and it wont connect at all

    SESSION_0_RDESKTOP_OPTIONS="-u -d 'testnet' -f -x l -r sound:'local'"
    SESSION_0_RDESKTOP_OPTIONS="-d '-u testnet' -f -x l -r sound:'local'"


    Thanks

    You might need to send a space -u ' ', I went through this before.

    Probably wouldn't put my domain in quotes.

    As for your resolution, what is it being set to? (if it's not listening to you)

    That didnt do it - but this did: -u '' with no space

    The Domain populates either way

    640 x 480

    So thats one down one to go

    Thanks guys

    I didn't say it wouldn't, I just don't encourage quoting unless there's a reason to do so.

    640x480 is interesting, lets eliminate the TS by firing it to something else (a windows xp workstation maybe) just to prove where the issue lies.

    Also, you could try

    Code:
    #X_DRIVER_NAME="mga"
    Set that to vesa and uncomment it.

    This did it, thanks

    Ok done :-)


    Just a quick question. Is there a way to set it so it will automatically set to the highest resolution possible for the monitor please?

    Another question, just something little, is there a way to set the cursor Smaller & white like the standard windows one please?

    Also is there any other comments or suggestions you have for the config file please?

    Thanks Kim

    I guess add some more here:
    SCREEN_RESOLUTION="1024x768 | 800x600 | 640x480 | *"

    will set yuo one server, you should be able to load balance by adding a round robin DNS for a few servers.

    running a webbrowser (firefox is included) is a nice addition - saves using TS resources for browsing/webmail etc. Auth to your smoothwall....

    # USB_MOUNT_DIR="/mnt/usbdevice"

    are you planning on allowing usb storage devices?
    we found some devices don't work, but others (fat32) are fine

    If put into production we do plan to use our farm name here. But this is inside a test area so we only have one server.
