LTSP Client
Server Training - Linux Terminal Server

The LTSP Client is usually a diskless computer that is low cost but has great performance because the speed is dependent upon the server and the network not the client.

The client is updated by updating the main system and adding features that you like to the system.  As root on the main system any applications you add are then enabled in all diskless workstations.  Basically what happens is that clients will inherit any changes that you make on the Ubuntu system except for changes in individual home directories.

In the User Privileges you must enable “fuse filesystems”.
