Status of Multiseat and choosing a methodology

[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]


Hi Everyone,
I hope that I am not annoying anyone posting this question here, but as I figure that xorg is the common denominator, you guys here would be able to give me a direction.

I am looking for a simple way to (re)implement multiseat, preferably on ubuntu with GDM and not KDM, but might consider any nice light window manager gifted with simplicity and speed. I have been using multiseat on Ubuntu 6.06 since 2006, but the newer (post gdm 2.2) versions no longer support this. My HW consists of 3 * PCIe x 16 (ok, not all 3 are x16) slots with discreet nVidia cards, and logitech USB cordless desktops, and I would like to load Ubuntu 11.10 unless someone provides compelling reasons to use the latest ubuntu snapshot.

Unless there are compelling reasons, I'm not keen on using any other method except that of editing xorg.conf, and (as in the older past) gdm.conf-custom (or the "now" equivalent).

So,
Please can I have some suggestions on what to use.

Is the going back to Ubuntu 11.04 and using the patched GDM a good idea? (see https://launchpad.net/~a7x/+archive/multiseat/+index# )

Thanks in advance,
Zoltan

BTW: The seats will mainly be used for proprietry software (GIS data capture), and a bit of casual internet browsing with firefox. ie: no fancy desktop SW accompanying the usual ubuntu installs will probably even be touched)
