|Bug Depends on:|
Currently, we are shipping files that are specific to TLCOS in most client packages: tlcontrol X-tlcontrol tlclient-login These files doesn't make sense on other distros than TLCOS; we do not support running these scripts on other distros (although Motala does run these on FC2). In bug 391, we decided that the -x flag should be reserved from TLCOS. In that case, perhaps the flag should even be hidden? There are two other files that doesn't make sense in, say, the RPM package: tl-su ctwm As I understand it, though, these are used in the thinstation package. Perhaps we should remove them from the other packages.
Need to verify thinstation functionality after doing this.
Even though bug 391 is closed, I'd say that the current policy is that "-x" *is* supported on other platforms than TLCOS. For example, it's documented in the TAG. Current list of files for -x mode: /opt/thinlinc/lib/tlclient/tlcontrol Current list of files specific to TLCOS, ie start X server etc: /opt/thinlinc/bin/tlclient-xdm /opt/thinlinc/lib/tlclient/tl-su /opt/thinlinc/lib/tlclient/tlclient-xdmstartup /opt/thinlinc/lib/tlclient/xdmstartup.d /opt/thinlinc/lib/tlclient/xdmstartup.d/00-startwm.sh /opt/thinlinc/lib/tlclient/xdmstartup.d/90-loop-client.sh
We're removing TLCOS in this release so do this now as well.
