Thinlinc server & Pop Os 22.04 LTS not working "no executable profiles could be found on this system"

Hi

just installed the server on my Pop os 22.04. when i try to connect via the thinlinc client, i can see it connects, but after the forward button i get “no executable profiles could be found on this system” have followed the advice in the older post here, but nothing works.
when i did [ ls /usr/… /xsessions ] i got pop.desktop … i also tryed to [ $ sudo apt install ubuntu-mate-desktop] … i had some luck but it only showed me my chrome browser… and nothing else.

any ideas ?
cheers

Hello,

So, you got ThinLinc to work as expected with MATE desktop, but are missing applications?

Regarding pop.desktop, try to incorporate the contents of pop.desktop to /opt/thinlinc/conf.d/etc/profiles.hconf and then systemctl restart vsmagent.service and try to log on again.

Kind regards,
Martin

Hi Martin,

Thank you for the help, did try to incorporate but i dont get it to work, as i have no clue how it should look for pop os, did try to use the GNOME profile and change it to something like in the profile [ /profile/pop] and the name to pop further down… to be honest im just guessing have no clue what it should be :frowning: cheers!

Hello @bert

Well, it’s hard to know what you are expecting to see if you have no reference to compare with :slight_smile: Could you perhaps share some screenshots of the environment you’re seeing, and be more detailed in what you think is wrong?

this is from my PC


not very exiting :slight_smile:
let me know what more you want to see :slight_smile:

Oh ok. I was under the impression that you could atleast get a MATE session up and running.

Try to clear out whatever changes you’ve made to /opt/thinlinc/etc/conf.d/profiles.hconf, and add this section to it:

[/profiles/pop]
xdg_session=pop
name=Pop Desktop
description=Pop Desktop
screenshot=
cmdline=
testcmd=
description_from_testcmd=false

Also append pop to the order= parameter and then restart the service with systemctl restart vsmagent

Regards,
Martin

Hi Martin,

its going the right way, atleast now i have passed the profile chooser… it loaded up some thing, and it does not exit now. although i have now just a blue screen of nothing :slight_smile: “F8” seems to work aswell :slight_smile:

The blue screen probably means that you’re already logged in with the same user account locally on the server.
If this is true, log out your local session or create another user for using with ThinLinc.

Kind regards,
/Martin

Hm, unsure what’s going on here for you.
I tried a fresh installation of PopOS 22.04 and made the change to profiles.hconf that I wrote about above. Everything works fine on this reference system, both with the native client and in browser. I get a full PopOS desktop, with all the graphical bells and whistles.

Could you share your session log file with us?
It’s located in /var/opt/thinlinc/sessions//last/xinit.log

Regards,
Martin

Just me, and a begginer to Linux, making it harder then it should be :slight_smile:

i logged out on my Pop machine, then i started the thin link and it worked, as you said i cant be logged on the “server” machine at the same time im trying to connect with my thin client from pc :slight_smile:

thank you so much for the help Martin! :smiley:
