Recently i got a thinclient…This is how i configured it in ubuntu….
I tried the steps in both ubuntu 10.04 and 12.04 and it worked fine..
The hardware of the thinclient couldnt support 12.04’s unity desktop so it switched back to gnome classic..
First we need to install some packages in our system
sudo apt-get install autoconf build-essential libpam0g-dev sudo apt-get install libssl-dev tightvncserver
Now download xrdp an opensource RDP software and x server capable.Either you can download it from xrdps sourceforge site or from spectras site the latest one is from source forge
I downloaded the latest xrdp-v0.6.0.tar.gz
tar -zxvf xrdp-v0.6.0.tar.gz cd xrdp ./bootstrap ./configure make sudo make install
Now xrdp installation is complete now to start xrdp
whereis xrdp sudo /etc/xrdp/xrdp.sh start
If everything goes fine xrdp daemon will start correctly…Now connect a monitor,keyboard and mouse to the thin client…connect it to the network….When you turn on the thin client this will be the first screen that you get…The firmware of the thin client i got was windows and i didnt find a bios option too..
From the screen select Connect Host
Click on Add
Then it will prompt for password the default password is 123.Enter it
Enter the host ip and click on connect…It will boot into a login screen
Give username and password of host system
Now it will boot into the host system and we can use the desktop
Happy Hacking 🙂
