I tried to use the (standalone version) with free 2 station licence
with my UBUNTU and DC-125 DockiUserful MultiSeatng Client.
The problem was that on the second station the UBUNTU’s graphics login hasn’t started instead it the remained black screen with a moveble big X mouse pointer even if I reconnected the USB cable of DC-125. (I will detail it.)
I have seen that DC-125 isn’t in the supported USB devices in Userful documents but I thought it will be usable according these 2 links :
My experiment detailes :
My OS version:
Ubuntu 10.04 LTS \n \l
Linux laci-desktop 2.6.32-36-generic #79-Ubuntu SMP Tue Nov 8 22:29:53 UTC 2011 x86_64 GNU/Linux
I have downloaded the MultiSeat software from here:
Userful MultiSeat v.4.0 1702 64-bit for Ubuntu 10.04
DEB | 64-bit | 14.8 MB
root@laci-desktop:/DATA/INSTALL/MultiSeat/new# ls -l u*deb
-rwxrwxrwx 1 laci laci 15568470 2011-12-16 11:27 userful-multiseat-4.0-1702-amd64.deb
and I installed it with dpkg :
#dpkg -i userful-multiseat-4.0-1702-amd64.deb
In the first install period my kernel ver was low: 2.6.32-21.
I have closed the installation and I upgraded the kernel to 2.6.32-36
After it the installation was successful, and the licence also was good for 2 station in the (Sys->Admn->UserFullCntrlcenter).
The DC-125 was connected to the PC with same LCD and USB keyboard and mouse and I did the first restarting of UBUNTU.
The MultiSeat realised the two stations, the MultiSeat logos appeared on both of terminals, and it asked me to press F1 and mouse on the station 1 (on pc)
and asked me to press F2 and mouse on the second station.
After the above on the first station (the PC) I could use the graphics login and everything looks like OK in UBUNTU.
But on the second station after pressing F2 at MultiSeat logo, X hasn’t started,
only the screen remained black with a mouse pointer (it was like a big X) and I could move it by second mouse appropriate.
So the graphics login hasn’t started on the second station.
Then I unplugged and 3 sec later I plugged again the DC-125’s USB cable. The MultSeat logo has appeared again I could press F2 again but after it
everything was same again: I had the big movable X mouse pointer on the black screen and nothing graphics login.
May be it could more info:
I could change the display resolution to lower on both screen, in the (Sys->Admn->UserFullCntrlcenter) and I could see the big X mouse also (it became bigger).
The first restarting was different from the others.
When the newer restarting happened with the connected DC-125, then (after the MultiSeat station checking F1 F2 …)
on the first terminal (main PC) only the ubuntu’s desktop color appeared without any menu and no login screen, only the
normal mouse on the color background. So I realized that the DC-125 needed disconnect during the ubuntu’s restarting if I want to get the login screen on the first station.
Unfortunately the second screen always was black (no any graphics) only the movable big X mouse.
I would like to ask to help or any suggestion in the above problem?
Thanks and Best Regards
