ThinLink OS (based on Fedora 8)

Thu Nov 14, 2013 4:14 pm

Hi!

I've been using my Raspberry Pi some time now - but only with the NOOB Software!
I'm more of a user then a technican when it comes to Linux as well as programing.

I'm interested in to know if it's possible to get the ThinLink OS (TLCOS) to work on a Raspberry Pi,
but there is only a TLCOS-ISO installer file availeble. http://www.cendio.com/downloads/TLCOS-4.1.1.iso

This TLCOS-ISO is a ThinClient Software.

Looking forward to any reply.

Regards
//Peter

The Raspberry Pi is based on the ARMv6 archetecture, it looks like TLOS is only available for Intel x86 architecture which is completely different

Maybe you could find out whether other RDP software can be used to communicate with the ThinLinc Linux Remote Desktop Server ?

Thanks for your reply MoosePi!

I hope that you would help me with a reply to the follwing.

The TLCOS is based on Fedora 8 with Xfce desktop, but unforturnately I don't know what RDP Software it uses, however would you say that this release (http://fedoraproject.org/sv/get-fedora- ... 2nd_arches) might be possible to configure and load on to a Raspberry Pi?

Any reply would be most valuable!

Unfortunately not wrong architecture, the only equivalent version of Fedora for the Raspberry Pi ARMv6 architecture is called Pidora, presently at version 18 which is one version behind Fedora:

Hi,

Thinlinc foresees in html5 compatibility via a web browser.
This is ... from a certain version of browser and upwards.
Typically in a small installation simply connect to the thinlinc server at port 300.

If the PI supports one of those browsers I guess your problem is rather well solved with a minimum of effort.

https://www.cendio.com/products/thinlin ... tml5.xhtml

You have to verify though if the connection via web is by default enabled ... don't know anymore if I had to enable that feature. But it works like a charm! The latency in display is low. Have to say though that I have not yet used it for video streaming (youtube things) as I use it for less media purposes.

If you want to go public, look in the administartion guide for a correct setup via vpn or other

Hopes this helps.
Would you be so gentle and kind to feedback if this works, please.
I'd like start pi-ing just as this would be one of the good reasons. I could replace/elaborate in an easy way sunray installations ...

Greetings,
Jan.
