desktops in action room

Postby Shannon » Mon Jun 30, 2008 1:48 pm

The desktops of the action room computers are a mess. I've been working on cleaning them up, deleting files that aren't needed, putting them in folders, etc. Please - if you're downloading or saving files to these computers put it in a folder with your name, the working group's name, etc. Otherwise, it may disappear.

Oy. I guess we should come round one day and do that rsync thing we've been talking about.
I've had it with you. If I had an image of a laser gun I would absolutely position it right here in my hand...
Ha! I have a real laser absolutely positioned in my hand!

I think we are using the computers wrong. Thing is, Ubuntu is designed to be a mulit-user system in which each user has an account and logs into that account when they use the computer. You're not meant to have everyone using one login like we do. Ubuntu thinks that all of us are one person and behaves accordingly. We're working against the design of the system, which creates all kinds of problems, like the desktop being full of everyone's files, stuff getting lost. Ubuntu sensibly remembers your print preferences (A3, A4 etc.) which makes perfect sense if you're just one person, but the way we use it the next person comes along and presses Print and surprise someone's set it to A3 again.

We really need to setup accounts for each user, and have the same accounts shared across all four machines.

We could still have a passwordless guest account, and that could be reset to a pristine state on each login like with the computer in the red room.

a good idea, although the transfer time for both up and down would make this prohibitive for large file sizes such as those you get with video. i'd recommend, along with instigating proper user accounts in some way, is that people buy their own usb drives, the prices of which have plummeted over the last few years/months. i got a 4Gb drive for £20 at xmas, now and
hey, if you don't like it, post on the BB (so you can ask about participating for better) |

I agree with the both of you, it is slow and I signed up but hardly ever use it!

You should buy some usb sticks to sell.

People with an interest in this - let's discuss it at the AFWG meeting Thursday.
