Enabling the custom desktops for users

Enabling the Custom Desktops for users is easy. Simply create a symbolic link in /opt/thinlinc/etc/xstartup.d:

$ sudo ln -s /opt/thinlinc/bin/tl-desktop-activate.sh

The ThinLinc session startup will read this file and write a ~/.config/menu/applications.menu (and possibly create symbolic links under ~/.kde/share/apps/kdesktop/Desktop if you’re using KDE).


The TLDC activation script only runs TLDC for non-root users. Test your TLDC configuration using a normal user.
