XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

emuhuron
Hello, I'm stumped by 3 issues.  Months ago, I started with XFMW4 and couldn't get my thinstation to work. I got it to work but I couldn't icons on the desktop.  I went to ICEWM.  I solved it but we wanted XFWM4.  I converted back to XFWM4.  Here's what we need:

Session 0 = XFWM4
Session 1 = VMVIEWPCOIP
Sessions 2 = Firefox (for now)
Session 3= Firefox (for now)


Issue 1:  After converting back to XFWM4,  I no longer have Shutdown or Restart in the Shutdown window.  Just "Reload".  I've looked at polkit, Consolekit, XFWM4, XFCE.  Don't know why the user level is blocked from 2 out of 3 options to "Turn off" the pc.

Issue 2:  Firefox has 3 Icons on my desktop.  The 2 that I want.  Sessions 2 and 3 are set to Server now.  After moving from ICEWM, each Session_#_FFox_Homepage is pointed at the Session 2 homepage.  And, above both is a "Firefox" icon pointed at thinstation.org (not needed).

Issue 3: VMWare connection icon is not named the "custom name" that I want.  The working app is named "Vmware.." on my build  3 icons below it is what appears to be some unopen-able text file with my "custom name.  Application is functional just name is on some icon that I don't want or need.  The spare icon has been there from the start and is not functioning with anything.

I've got icons on the desktop 2 for Vmware (1 is dead link to no where).  And, 3 for Firefox (1 that I don't want).  My session commands follow proper procedure.  I'm wondering 

Any thoughts?


Now, I've got it

Re: XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

Michael K-2
Did you set tsuser without including the switchuser package?

The default Firefox and VMware icons and others come from reading /lib/menu/*.  Any that don't say nodesktop=true will be on the desktop.  You can turn them all off with ICONMODE=off.  Your icons via SESSION_* will be the only ones.

You're also not using SERVER for any of your sessions, which is why some of your icons aren't doing what you want.  FIREFOX_OPTIONS -> FIREFOX_SERVER and VMVIEW_SERVER = "domain name:443"

Re: XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

emuhuron
Michael K, just to clarify some of my confusion, why would I turn on "switchuser" if I only need tsuser (I believe)?  I didn't believe that I wanted more than one user, such as "tsuser."

The way I was designing the system was to boot into the the tsuser profile with limited access to the desktop system other than what's provided to get to vmware.  How would I configure my system to not need to change profiles?  In my build.conf, param tsuser is "tsuser".  I never touched the param lines.  And, to answer your question, "switchuser" is not listed in my build file either.

Do I add switchuser or disable "param tsuser"?

Hello, I'm stumped by 3 issues.  Months ago, I started with XFMW4 and couldn't get my thinstation to work. I got it to work but I couldn't icons on the desktop.  I went to ICEWM.  I solved it but we wanted XFWM4.  I converted back to XFWM4.  Here's what we need:

Session 0 = XFWM4
Session 1 = VMVIEWPCOIP
Sessions 2 = Firefox (for now)
Session 3= Firefox (for now)


Issue 1:  After converting back to XFWM4,  I no longer have Shutdown or Restart in the Shutdown window.  Just "Reload".  I've looked at polkit, Consolekit, XFWM4, XFCE.  Don't know why the user level is blocked from 2 out of 3 options to "Turn off" the pc.

Issue 2:  Firefox has 3 Icons on my desktop.  The 2 that I want.  Sessions 2 and 3 are set to Server now.  After moving from ICEWM, each Session_#_FFox_Homepage is pointed at the Session 2 homepage.  And, above both is a "Firefox" icon pointed at thinstation.org (not needed).

Issue 3: VMWare connection icon is not named the "custom name" that I want.  The working app is named "Vmware.." on my build  3 icons below it is what appears to be some unopen-able text file with my "custom name.  Application is functional just name is on some icon that I don't want or need.  The spare icon has been there from the start and is not functioning with anything.

I've got icons on the desktop 2 for Vmware (1 is dead link to no where).  And, 3 for Firefox (1 that I don't want).  My session commands follow proper procedure.  I'm wondering 

Any thoughts?


Now, I've got it

Re: XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

Don Cupp
You need to add "package switchuser"

This puts in all the pam, policykit stuff that linux needs in order to correctly run as a non-root user. It would take further modification to allow actual user switching of a running image. The naming might be a little confusing.....

Michael K, just to clarify some of my confusion, why would I turn on "switchuser" if I only need tsuser (I believe)?  I didn't believe that I wanted more than one user, such as "tsuser."

The way I was designing the system was to boot into the the tsuser profile with limited access to the desktop system other than what's provided to get to vmware.  How would I configure my system to not need to change profiles?  In my build.conf, param tsuser is "tsuser".  I never touched the param lines.  And, to answer your question, "switchuser" is not listed in my build file either.

Do I add switchuser or disable "param tsuser"?

The default Firefox and VMware icons and others come from reading /lib/menu/*.  Any that don't say nodesktop=true will be on the desktop.  You can turn them all off with ICONMODE=off.  Your icons via SESSION_* will be the only ones.

You're also not using SERVER for any of your sessions, which is why some of your icons aren't doing what you want.  FIREFOX_OPTIONS -> FIREFOX_SERVER and VMVIEW_SERVER = "domain name:443"

Re: XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

emuhuron
In reply to this post by emuhuron
Michael K, I went ahead and tried it and Switchuser and the Server options.  I've got 2 firefox icons on my desktop.  That was the goal.  However, both give a "Launch Error--'Failed to run "Title1.desktop':  The name org.xfce.FileManager was not provided by any .service files."

And, my Vmware application icon is gone.  All that I have is some un-openable text file named as "Title 1" that I wanted for the Vmware application.  I'd like the text file gone and the application back.

For references:  I now have Session_1_VMVIEW_Server="domainname", Session_2_Firefox_Server="domainname"

Hello, I'm stumped by 3 issues.  Months ago, I started with XFMW4 and couldn't get my thinstation to work. I got it to work but I couldn't icons on the desktop.  I went to ICEWM.  I solved it but we wanted XFWM4.  I converted back to XFWM4.  Here's what we need:

Session 0 = XFWM4
Session 1 = VMVIEWPCOIP
Sessions 2 = Firefox (for now)
Session 3= Firefox (for now)


Issue 1:  After converting back to XFWM4,  I no longer have Shutdown or Restart in the Shutdown window.  Just "Reload".  I've looked at polkit, Consolekit, XFWM4, XFCE.  Don't know why the user level is blocked from 2 out of 3 options to "Turn off" the pc.

Issue 2:  Firefox has 3 Icons on my desktop.  The 2 that I want.  Sessions 2 and 3 are set to Server now.  After moving from ICEWM, each Session_#_FFox_Homepage is pointed at the Session 2 homepage.  And, above both is a "Firefox" icon pointed at thinstation.org (not needed).

Issue 3: VMWare connection icon is not named the "custom name" that I want.  The working app is named "Vmware.." on my build  3 icons below it is what appears to be some unopen-able text file with my "custom name.  Application is functional just name is on some icon that I don't want or need.  The spare icon has been there from the start and is not functioning with anything.

I've got icons on the desktop 2 for Vmware (1 is dead link to no where).  And, 3 for Firefox (1 that I don't want).  My session commands follow proper procedure.  I'm wondering 

Any thoughts?


Now, I've got it

Re: XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

Michael K-2
You also need thunar - it's the file manager and desktop for XFCE.
Your session 1 type is wrong.  It should be just 'vmview' not 'vmviewpcoip'.  Sorry for not catching that.

And, my Vmware application icon is gone.  All that I have is some un-openable text file named as "Title 1" that I wanted for the Vmware application.  I'd like the text file gone and the application back.

The default Firefox and VMware icons and others come from reading /lib/menu/*.  Any that don't say nodesktop=true will be on the desktop.  You can turn them all off with ICONMODE=off.  Your icons via SESSION_* will be the only ones.

You're also not using SERVER for any of your sessions, which is why some of your icons aren't doing what you want.  FIREFOX_OPTIONS -> FIREFOX_SERVER and VMVIEW_SERVER = "domain name:443"

Re: XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

emuhuron
Michael, okay.  I made the change to vmview.  VDI session connects.  Lost the microphone that I had working last week, but still have the camera.  In the logs, it states that Audio =100 is invalid.  Yet, I can hear and see the person on the other end.

I do have at the top of my Thinstation.conf.buildtime MIC_Level=100 and AUDIO_Level=100.  

In session 1, SESSSION_1_VMVIEW_MIC_LEVEL=100.  I'm wondering if it should read as follows:  SESSION_1_MIC_LEVEL=100 and AUDIO the same way.  According to the logs, it's setting the MIC to 0.  Now, the webcam and mic are only needed IF the user starts a webmeeting.  Otherwise, it's not needed.  When I started a meeting and then disconnected from it, the only notes in the log is MIC set to 0.

Should I be putting the volume level in the config file?  Something like, vmview.mic_level=100 and vmview.audio_level=100?

I do have a volume icon on my toolbar (near clock).  Weirdly, it was set for 82.  Don't know where that came from.  I set things to 100 just so users can't gripe "It's not loud enough."

Hello, I'm stumped by 3 issues.  Months ago, I started with XFMW4 and couldn't get my thinstation to work. I got it to work but I couldn't icons on the desktop.  I went to ICEWM.  I solved it but we wanted XFWM4.  I converted back to XFWM4.  Here's what we need:

Session 0 = XFWM4
Session 1 = VMVIEWPCOIP
Sessions 2 = Firefox (for now)
Session 3= Firefox (for now)


Issue 1:  After converting back to XFWM4,  I no longer have Shutdown or Restart in the Shutdown window.  Just "Reload".  I've looked at polkit, Consolekit, XFWM4, XFCE.  Don't know why the user level is blocked from 2 out of 3 options to "Turn off" the pc.

Issue 2:  Firefox has 3 Icons on my desktop.  The 2 that I want.  Sessions 2 and 3 are set to Server now.  After moving from ICEWM, each Session_#_FFox_Homepage is pointed at the Session 2 homepage.  And, above both is a "Firefox" icon pointed at thinstation.org (not needed).

Issue 3: VMWare connection icon is not named the "custom name" that I want.  The working app is named "Vmware.." on my build  3 icons below it is what appears to be some unopen-able text file with my "custom name.  Application is functional just name is on some icon that I don't want or need.  The spare icon has been there from the start and is not functioning with anything.

I've got icons on the desktop 2 for Vmware (1 is dead link to no where).  And, 3 for Firefox (1 that I don't want).  My session commands follow proper procedure.  I'm wondering 

Any thoughts?


Now, I've got it

Re: XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

emuhuron
Addendum:  I've determined where my headache is,.. I just don't know how to have it turned on all the time.  In the build, if ICONMODE is set to AUTO, I see the application called "Sound Mixer" in the Start Menu.  Under the Recording tab, the "Toggle audio recording from Microphone" is Muted.  I need to make it UnMuted.  When I toggle the Microphone to On (Mute is off), my webcam microphone works with RTAV just fine.

IF I don't do the above toggle, VMWARE RTAV log states that MIC Volume is set to 0.  When toggled on, this is no longer an issue.  Where is this set in the TS Developer so that the MIC is always on once my package is built?  Again, my mic is preset to either 90 or 100 in Thinstation.conf.buildtime and preset in Session_1_Vmare_mic_level=100.  I plan to return to ICONMODE=off once this is fixed.

Michael and everyone, Thanks again in advance

Michael, okay.  I made the change to vmview.  VDI session connects.  Lost the microphone that I had working last week, but still have the camera.  In the logs, it states that Audio =100 is invalid.  Yet, I can hear and see the person on the other end.

I do have at the top of my Thinstation.conf.buildtime MIC_Level=100 and AUDIO_Level=100.  

In session 1, SESSSION_1_VMVIEW_MIC_LEVEL=100.  I'm wondering if it should read as follows:  SESSION_1_MIC_LEVEL=100 and AUDIO the same way.  According to the logs, it's setting the MIC to 0.  Now, the webcam and mic are only needed IF the user starts a webmeeting.  Otherwise, it's not needed.  When I started a meeting and then disconnected from it, the only notes in the log is MIC set to 0.

Should I be putting the volume level in the config file?  Something like, vmview.mic_level=100 and vmview.audio_level=100?

I do have a volume icon on my toolbar (near clock).  Weirdly, it was set for 82.  Don't know where that came from.  I set things to 100 just so users can't gripe "It's not loud enough."

Your session 1 type is wrong.  It should be just 'vmview' not 'vmviewpcoip'.  Sorry for not catching that.

Michael K, I went ahead and tried it and Switchuser and the Server options.  I've got 2 firefox icons on my desktop.  That was the goal.  However, both give a "Launch Error--'Failed to run "Title1.desktop':  The name org.xfce.FileManager was not provided by any .service files."

And, my Vmware application icon is gone.  All that I have is some un-openable text file named as "Title 1" that I wanted for the Vmware application.  I'd like the text file gone and the application back.

For references:  I now have Session_1_VMVIEW_Server="domainname", Session_2_Firefox_Server="domainname"

The default Firefox and VMware icons and others come from reading /lib/menu/*.  Any that don't say nodesktop=true will be on the desktop.  You can turn them all off with ICONMODE=off.  Your icons via SESSION_* will be the only ones.

You're also not using SERVER for any of your sessions, which is why some of your icons aren't doing what you want.  FIREFOX_OPTIONS -> FIREFOX_SERVER and VMVIEW_SERVER = "domain name:443"

Re: XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

emuhuron
In reply to this post by Don Cupp
Don, a belated thanks.  I didn't even think about root vs non-root.  I apologize for not noticing sooner.  Still trying to fix my email filter.  Blocking odd stuff.

My last issue is with "Sound Mixer" in the final package.  Somehow, the Recording Tab has the microphone muted.  That defeats the use of a webcam.  And, I'm not going to let the users see Sound Mixer once I've got ICONMODE set to OFF.  Which package in the thinstation build is the builder for "Sound Mixer" in TS?  And, if possible where is the command or line of code to UN-Mute the microphone option?  Hard-code in package or line command in the Session file?

To recap, here's what I know:  TS-build sees the microphone only AFTER I start my vmware vdi webcam (that's fine). In the Multimedia application called "Volume Control"-- it's Recording tab sees the webcam and the volume level jumps up-and-down as people talk near the microphone.  However, the person on the other end of the webcam call doesn't hear me until I've unmuted the application "Sound Mixer"- Recording tab Microphone setting (lower right of volume control in the tab window).  The application "Sound Mixer" is adjacent to Volume Control in the Multimedia list from the Applications Start menu 


From yesterday's question:
"Addendum:  I've determined where my headache is,.. I just don't know how to have it turned on all the time.  In the build, if ICONMODE is set to AUTO, I see the application called "Sound Mixer" in the Start Menu.  Under the Recording tab, the "Toggle audio recording from Microphone" is Muted.  I need to make it UnMuted.  When I toggle the Microphone to On (Mute is off), my webcam microphone works with RTAV just fine.

This puts in all the pam, policykit stuff that linux needs in order to correctly run as a non-root user. It would take further modification to allow actual user switching of a running image. The naming might be a little confusing.....

Hello, I'm stumped by 3 issues.  Months ago, I started with XFMW4 and couldn't get my thinstation to work. I got it to work but I couldn't icons on the desktop.  I went to ICEWM.  I solved it but we wanted XFWM4.  I converted back to XFWM4.  Here's what we need:

Session 0 = XFWM4
Session 1 = VMVIEWPCOIP
Sessions 2 = Firefox (for now)
Session 3= Firefox (for now)


Issue 1:  After converting back to XFWM4,  I no longer have Shutdown or Restart in the Shutdown window.  Just "Reload".  I've looked at polkit, Consolekit, XFWM4, XFCE.  Don't know why the user level is blocked from 2 out of 3 options to "Turn off" the pc.

Issue 2:  Firefox has 3 Icons on my desktop.  The 2 that I want.  Sessions 2 and 3 are set to Server now.  After moving from ICEWM, each Session_#_FFox_Homepage is pointed at the Session 2 homepage.  And, above both is a "Firefox" icon pointed at thinstation.org (not needed).

Issue 3: VMWare connection icon is not named the "custom name" that I want.  The working app is named "Vmware.." on my build  3 icons below it is what appears to be some unopen-able text file with my "custom name.  Application is functional just name is on some icon that I don't want or need.  The spare icon has been there from the start and is not functioning with anything.

I've got icons on the desktop 2 for Vmware (1 is dead link to no where).  And, 3 for Firefox (1 that I don't want).  My session commands follow proper procedure.  I'm wondering 

Any thoughts?


Now, I've got it

Re: XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

Michael K-2
In reply to this post by emuhuron
Take a look at packages/alsa/etc/init.d/audio for reference
You may have to set MIC_DEVICE or UNMUTE if your microphone capability isn't named "Mic" or to unmute addtional devices.
The mixer GUI is just an application on top of either ALSA or PulseAudio with ALSA.  So find out what command makes the mic come on from the command line and see if there's an option that already matches.  If not, run your own amixer command from an init script of your own.

SESSION_1_VMWARE_MIC_LEVEL isn't a thing.  Don't use it.  As in my other response, it cancels all other options.

Addendum:  I've determined where my headache is,.. I just don't know how to have it turned on all the time.  In the build, if ICONMODE is set to AUTO, I see the application called "Sound Mixer" in the Start Menu.  Under the Recording tab, the "Toggle audio recording from Microphone" is Muted.  I need to make it UnMuted.  When I toggle the Microphone to On (Mute is off), my webcam microphone works with RTAV just fine.

IF I don't do the above toggle, VMWARE RTAV log states that MIC Volume is set to 0.  When toggled on, this is no longer an issue.  Where is this set in the TS Developer so that the MIC is always on once my package is built?  Again, my mic is preset to either 90 or 100 in Thinstation.conf.buildtime and preset in Session_1_Vmare_mic_level=100.  I plan to return to ICONMODE=off once this is fixed.

Michael and everyone, Thanks again in advance

Michael, okay.  I made the change to vmview.  VDI session connects.  Lost the microphone that I had working last week, but still have the camera.  In the logs, it states that Audio =100 is invalid.  Yet, I can hear and see the person on the other end.

I do have at the top of my Thinstation.conf.buildtime MIC_Level=100 and AUDIO_Level=100.  

In session 1, SESSSION_1_VMVIEW_MIC_LEVEL=100.  I'm wondering if it should read as follows:  SESSION_1_MIC_LEVEL=100 and AUDIO the same way.  According to the logs, it's setting the MIC to 0.  Now, the webcam and mic are only needed IF the user starts a webmeeting.  Otherwise, it's not needed.  When I started a meeting and then disconnected from it, the only notes in the log is MIC set to 0.

Should I be putting the volume level in the config file?  Something like, vmview.mic_level=100 and vmview.audio_level=100?

I do have a volume icon on my toolbar (near clock).  Weirdly, it was set for 82.  Don't know where that came from.  I set things to 100 just so users can't gripe "It's not loud enough."

You also need thunar - it's the file manager and desktop for XFCE.
Your session 1 type is wrong.  It should be just 'vmview' not 'vmviewpcoip'.  Sorry for not catching that.

Michael K, I went ahead and tried it and Switchuser and the Server options.  I've got 2 firefox icons on my desktop.  That was the goal.  However, both give a "Launch Error--'Failed to run "Title1.desktop':  The name org.xfce.FileManager was not provided by any .service files."

And, my Vmware application icon is gone.  All that I have is some un-openable text file named as "Title 1" that I wanted for the Vmware application.  I'd like the text file gone and the application back.

For references:  I now have Session_1_VMVIEW_Server="domainname", Session_2_Firefox_Server="domainname"

Michael K, just to clarify some of my confusion, why would I turn on "switchuser" if I only need tsuser (I believe)?  I didn't believe that I wanted more than one user, such as "tsuser."

The way I was designing the system was to boot into the the tsuser profile with limited access to the desktop system other than what's provided to get to vmware.  How would I configure my system to not need to change profiles?  In my build.conf, param tsuser is "tsuser".  I never touched the param lines.  And, to answer your question, "switchuser" is not listed in my build file either.

Do I add switchuser or disable "param tsuser"?

Did you set tsuser without including the switchuser package?

The default Firefox and VMware icons and others come from reading /lib/menu/*.  Any that don't say nodesktop=true will be on the desktop.  You can turn them all off with ICONMODE=off.  Your icons via SESSION_* will be the only ones.

You're also not using SERVER for any of your sessions, which is why some of your icons aren't doing what you want.  FIREFOX_OPTIONS -> FIREFOX_SERVER and VMVIEW_SERVER = "domain name:443"

Michael K,  I tried to run amixer in my build to get my config file in my build.  It fails with the following (below).  I've added packages alsa-lib, alsa-plugins and pulseaudio to my build.conf.  What could I be missing or have I added too much?  Also, after reading pulseaudio website, I learned that pulseaudio overrides alsa settings. So, I'm a bit stumped.

DevStation_mac_address:/var/lib/alsa# amixer scontents
ALSA lib pulse.c:243:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect: Connection refused

amixer: Mixer attach default error: Connection refused
DevStation_mac_address:/var/lib/alsa# amixer scontrols
ALSA lib pulse.c:243:(pulse_connect) PulseAudio: Unable to connect: Connection refused

amixer: Mixer attach default error: Connection refused

You may have to set MIC_DEVICE or UNMUTE if your microphone capability isn't named "Mic" or to unmute addtional devices.
The mixer GUI is just an application on top of either ALSA or PulseAudio with ALSA.  So find out what command makes the mic come on from the command line and see if there's an option that already matches.  If not, run your own amixer command from an init script of your own.

SESSION_1_VMWARE_MIC_LEVEL isn't a thing.  Don't use it.  As in my other response, it cancels all other options.

IF I don't do the above toggle, VMWARE RTAV log states that MIC Volume is set to 0.  When toggled on, this is no longer an issue.  Where is this set in the TS Developer so that the MIC is always on once my package is built?  Again, my mic is preset to either 90 or 100 in Thinstation.conf.buildtime and preset in Session_1_Vmare_mic_level=100.  I plan to return to ICONMODE=off once this is fixed.

Michael and everyone, Thanks again in advance

Michael, okay.  I made the change to vmview.  VDI session connects.  Lost the microphone that I had working last week, but still have the camera.  In the logs, it states that Audio =100 is invalid.  Yet, I can hear and see the person on the other end.

I do have at the top of my Thinstation.conf.buildtime MIC_Level=100 and AUDIO_Level=100.  

In session 1, SESSSION_1_VMVIEW_MIC_LEVEL=100.  I'm wondering if it should read as follows:  SESSION_1_MIC_LEVEL=100 and AUDIO the same way.  According to the logs, it's setting the MIC to 0.  Now, the webcam and mic are only needed IF the user starts a webmeeting.  Otherwise, it's not needed.  When I started a meeting and then disconnected from it, the only notes in the log is MIC set to 0.

Should I be putting the volume level in the config file?  Something like, vmview.mic_level=100 and vmview.audio_level=100?

I do have a volume icon on my toolbar (near clock).  Weirdly, it was set for 82.  Don't know where that came from.  I set things to 100 just so users can't gripe "It's not loud enough."

Michael K, just to clarify some of my confusion, why would I turn on "switchuser" if I only need tsuser (I believe)?  I didn't believe that I wanted more than one user, such as "tsuser."

The way I was designing the system was to boot into the the tsuser profile with limited access to the desktop system other than what's provided to get to vmware.  How would I configure my system to not need to change profiles?  In my build.conf, param tsuser is "tsuser".  I never touched the param lines.  And, to answer your question, "switchuser" is not listed in my build file either.

Do I add switchuser or disable "param tsuser"?

The default Firefox and VMware icons and others come from reading /lib/menu/*.  Any that don't say nodesktop=true will be on the desktop.  You can turn them all off with ICONMODE=off.  Your icons via SESSION_* will be the only ones.

You're also not using SERVER for any of your sessions, which is why some of your icons aren't doing what you want.  FIREFOX_OPTIONS -> FIREFOX_SERVER and VMVIEW_SERVER = "domain name:443"

Hello, I'm stumped by 3 issues.  Months ago, I started with XFMW4 and couldn't get my thinstation to work. I got it to work but I couldn't icons on the desktop.  I went to ICEWM.  I solved it but we wanted XFWM4.  I converted back to XFWM4.  Here's what we need:

Session 0 = XFWM4
Session 1 = VMVIEWPCOIP
Sessions 2 = Firefox (for now)
Session 3= Firefox (for now)


Issue 1:  After converting back to XFWM4,  I no longer have Shutdown or Restart in the Shutdown window.  Just "Reload".  I've looked at polkit, Consolekit, XFWM4, XFCE.  Don't know why the user level is blocked from 2 out of 3 options to "Turn off" the pc.

Issue 2:  Firefox has 3 Icons on my desktop.  The 2 that I want.  Sessions 2 and 3 are set to Server now.  After moving from ICEWM, each Session_#_FFox_Homepage is pointed at the Session 2 homepage.  And, above both is a "Firefox" icon pointed at thinstation.org (not needed).

Issue 3: VMWare connection icon is not named the "custom name" that I want.  The working app is named "Vmware.." on my build  3 icons below it is what appears to be some unopen-able text file with my "custom name.  Application is functional just name is on some icon that I don't want or need.  The spare icon has been there from the start and is not functioning with anything.

I've got icons on the desktop 2 for Vmware (1 is dead link to no where).  And, 3 for Firefox (1 that I don't want).  My session commands follow proper procedure.  I'm wondering 

Any thoughts?


Now, I've got it

Re: XFWM4 issue and duplicate icones

okay, I've got audio.  So, I'm setting my TS.conf.buildtime audio to AUDIO_LEVEL=100.  However, when it builds, the audio is set to 45 (-21db).  Where is that 45 coming from?  It did work before I added the following script to fix my "mic mute/ volume set to 0" issue.  Now, my mic works great, but I cannot set the speaker volume.  Where to next folks?  Please and thanks again.

Hello, I'm stumped by 3 issues.  Months ago, I started with XFMW4 and couldn't get my thinstation to work. I got it to work but I couldn't icons on the desktop.  I went to ICEWM.  I solved it but we wanted XFWM4.  I converted back to XFWM4.  Here's what we need:

Session 0 = XFWM4
Session 1 = VMVIEWPCOIP
Sessions 2 = Firefox (for now)
Session 3= Firefox (for now)


Issue 1:  After converting back to XFWM4,  I no longer have Shutdown or Restart in the Shutdown window.  Just "Reload".  I've looked at polkit, Consolekit, XFWM4, XFCE.  Don't know why the user level is blocked from 2 out of 3 options to "Turn off" the pc.

Issue 2:  Firefox has 3 Icons on my desktop.  The 2 that I want.  Sessions 2 and 3 are set to Server now.  After moving from ICEWM, each Session_#_FFox_Homepage is pointed at the Session 2 homepage.  And, above both is a "Firefox" icon pointed at thinstation.org (not needed).

Issue 3: VMWare connection icon is not named the "custom name" that I want.  The working app is named "Vmware.." on my build  3 icons below it is what appears to be some unopen-able text file with my "custom name.  Application is functional just name is on some icon that I don't want or need.  The spare icon has been there from the start and is not functioning with anything.

I've got icons on the desktop 2 for Vmware (1 is dead link to no where).  And, 3 for Firefox (1 that I don't want).  My session commands follow proper procedure.  I'm wondering 

Any thoughts?


Now, I've got it
