XDMCP to return to Ubuntu?

I’ve posted several articles about XDMCP in the past, and the most popular ones by far have concerned its removal from Ubuntu, and alternatives and workarounds to get the functionality back. I have to admit that I didn’t see much hope for its return to any future Ubuntu release, and have moved on to other […]

XDMCP support in Ubuntu: make your voice heard

As I’ve pointed out previously, the XDMCP support has been severely crippled in Ubuntu 9.10, Karmic Koala. I suspect that XDMCP is something that isn’t considered a very high priority by the Ubuntu and upstream developers, as it’s an old protocol with security issues. Up until Karmic, however, it had the distinct advantage of being […]

Karmic Koala, GDM, XDMCP and some other stuff

Update: I’ve written another post which describes how to work around some of the XDMCP regressions in Karmic Ubuntu 9.10, Karmic Koala, has been released. So it’s time to provide some updates on my older posts to cover the changes, both good and bad, that are relevant to the subjects I’ve raised in the past. […]

A century of stats

This is post #101. Yes, I really managed to waffle on for a hundred posts before this one. And as anyone who’s read more than a couple of posts here will attest, I really can waffle when I want to. So I figured I’d have a quick look at how those 100 posts break down, […]

Upgraded to Ubuntu 9.04, Jaunty Jackalope

The new version of Ubuntu came out on Thurdsday, so I grabbed the Alternate Installer CD via BitTorrent in order to upgrade my Linux virtual machine at work, and my desktop machine at home. While I was at it, I also grabbed a copy of the Ubuntu Netbook Remix to put onto my Dell Mini […]
