|Summary:||Simplify "ThinLincification" of a Linux system - perhaps via tl-setup|
|Product:||ThinLinc||Reporter:||Peter Åstrand <email@example.com>|

Each one installs a new ThinLinc system, there's a certain amount of things that needs to be done to tune the system for ThinLinc. This includes: * Set a default, plain background color for all users * Disable the screensavers for all users * Fix the KDE aRts error message stuff All this is described in the UG FAQ. We could create some kind of tool that automates these steps. It would be possible to add this functionality to the tl-setup tool. It already allows you to select different "tasks" to perform, for example setup the CUPS queues and configure Webmin. Doing this "KDE" tuning could be one or more new tasks. One drawback with implementing this is that this quite little to do with ThinLinc. It will fail on systems with non-standard KDE installations, such as Debian and Solaris.
The first two things can be fixed with kiosktool etc. That leaves us with only the arts message.
Bug 5584 is another example of when it could be useful to offer the admin to tweak the system. This could be in a form of a tl-setup page: """ Adapt System for Remote Desktop Sessions [x] Disable "PackageKit" authentication dialogs [x] Disable "colord" authentication dialogs """
