Ubuntu doesn't have /etc/apache2/conf.d -> tl-setup claims it can't speak to localhost:443

You need to

Verified on Ubuntu 14.04, got unconfirmed reports about 12.04 still working
apache2 in Ubuntu has stopped using the /etc/apache2/conf.d and isn't packaging
it anymore. They now use /etc/apache2/conf-available and
/etc/apache2/conf-enabled, which is at least consistent with their approach for
mods and sites.
tl-setup doesn't know about these directories, so it fails to detect the
configuration of the web server, and thus it presents a error message to the
user, saying that it could not connect to localhost:443. In fact, it manages to
connect just fine, but fails to find the configuration directory.
End result, user is unable to install web integration parts of ThinLinc and
gets a misleading error message.
The easiest workaround for now is to "ln -s /etc/apache2/conf-enabled
