Select Prebuilt Image


Click "Yes" if the network setup is correctly detected


If you see "Setup Completed" without any errors, congratulations, your LTSP server is ready


As everything in the client is auto detected you may not need to alter lts.conf at this moment, however if you require to change anything according to the hardware you have Easy-LTSP has great GUI to make quick changes. The configurations for the client behaviors are divided in "Sections". The "default" section applies to all clients.


More sections can be added or removed easily


Add the section according to your hardware's requirements, the individual settings are called "tasks", such as configuring printer, swap, etc.


Preview the resultant lts.conf to verify all the changes


Saving the lts.conf will make the changes permanent and apply to the clients on next reboot
