Some support-questions are really hard to answer. For example: "How do you add a user and password for a user to access the remote desktop?"

The answer is: You're done! Yes, that's it! Nothing more to do.

The user of course has to exist on the Linux server, and if typing "adduser <username>" in a shell seems too complicated, all Linux distributions have graphical interfaces to add users.

(The reason people ask this is because they are used to NX.)

A tip for you who log into many different ThinLinc systems from the
same desktop computer:

If you create an empty file with a filename ending with ".tlclient", the ThinLinc client will be started by clicking on that file and it will store its configuration in it. You can for example have a file called "Triolith.tlclient" that you use to connect to the supercompter Triolith and a file "Work.tlclient" that you use to connect to the ThinLinc server at your work.

Note: the client has to be run on Windows or Linux for this to work.

Read more at 7.7.2. Configuration Parameter Storage
https://www.cendio.com/resources/docs/tag/clientconf.html
The ThinLinc client does not currently use Hiveconf for its configuration, although this may change in future ThinLinc releases. Instead, the Linux client uses a similar plain text format with key/value pairs and the Windows client stores the values in the Windows registry.

This is just one example of how tiny and cheap a computer can be today. We have also gotten reports on people successfully running a ThinLinc client on Raspberry Pi 2.

It went on presale via Newegg and is scheduled to ship April 24.

ThinLinc shows the stars!

ThinLinc is used to enable remote access to a 2m radio telescopes called SALSA, Onsala Space Obsevatory at Chalmers University.

"For many years I have wanted to provide users, for example
high-school students, with remote login to the telescopes directly in
the browser. After 30 minutes of configuration I now have the ThinLinc
server up and running and working like a charm!" - Eskil

First NoMachine NX was tried, which for several reasons required some extra work and ssh could never present graphic good enough.

More about their setup: http://vale.oso.chalmers.se
SALSA means "Such a lovely small antenna" (or in Swedish: "Sicken Attans Liten Söt Antenn") and refers to our small (2.3m) radio telescopes situated at Onsala Space Observatory in Sweden. Anyone may control these telescopes via internet for free. SALSA is a part of the European Hands-On Universe ...

How important is the HTML5-client to you? (if you don't use it due to missing features, vote as if that is implemented and write a comment.)

The result so far (67% says the HTML5-client is totally critical) is a little surprising as we've heard that many customers don't even even use it and that others only use it because sometimes it makes it a little easier for the users.

Keep voting, and we'll definitely take your votes into account for the future development! :)
