Problem with thumbnails in epoptes

Asked by karakal on 2012-06-12

We have upgraded our installation to epoptes 0.5.4 on Ubuntu 10.04 LTS LTSP.

It works nearly perfect, with more epoptes-GUIs open at once, very nice.

What doesn't work anymore are the thumbnails in the epoptes-GUI. Does anyone have a clue why?

Hi, log in on a thin client, open a gnome-terminal, run
/usr/sbin/epoptes-client
and paste the output here.

Okay...

It writes out to the console:

* Epoptes-client connection to <IP>:789...
   ...done

And after you do that you don't see its thumbnails on epoptes and no error messages in the epoptes-client output either?!

Also, when you say that you've upgraded to 5.4.0, what was your previous version? 5.3.0? Because the changelog from 5.3.0 to 5.4.0 mostly involves translation updates, no code changes...

When I do this, it just says "Client <NAME> shut down"...
but no thumbnails anywhere...

We've upgraded from (I think) some 0.3.x...

Maybe you need to update your chroot, if it still has such an old version. You can also come to the #ltsp IRC channel for online troubleshooting:

No. Everything is update. Everything else is working too, I can assist oder study, Shutdown and reboot the thin clients and so on...

Just the thumbnails are not working anymore...
