3.4.  Installing the ThinLinc Remote Desktop Server

3.4.1.  Starting the Installation Program

The installation program is located in the root directory of the Server Bundle. Extract the bundle and start the installation program as follows:

sh ./install-server

If you prefer, you can also install the ThinLinc packages by hand. These packages are located in subdirectory packages of the Server Bundle.

After installing the software packages, ThinLinc must be configured. This is done by the program /opt/thinlinc/sbin/tl-setup. If you are running install-server, it will ask you if you want to start tl-setup at the end of the package installation.  Automating tl-setup

You can automate tl-setup by providing it with an answer file. Begin by generating an answer template by running the following command.

# /opt/thinlinc/sbin/tl-setup -g OUTPUT-FILE

A list of questions which tl-setup would ask is written to OUTPUT-FILE . Edit this file with suitable answers for your system. The file uses the same Hiveconf syntax also used for the ThinLinc configuration files, described in Chapter 16, Hiveconf . You can now use the -a option for tl-setup to make it read answers from the given file.

# /opt/thinlinc/sbin/tl-setup -a INPUT-FILE
