RPi Thin Client – Another INSANE project found!

This Raspberry Pi stuff I am getting is so insane, you just can not ignore it!  Today, whilst doing some work, I stumbled over a very nice build for the Raspberry PI and that is to turn it into a:

THIN CLIENT!

(In DAN-VS voice)

The OS: http://rpitc.blogspot.com/

What this means is that you will be able to run a remote desktop server right out-the-box on a RPi!  No more limitations, but for your mind.

I followed a couple of steps to get this going:

  • nano /etc/network/interfaces

auto lo
iface lo inet loopback
#auto eth0
#iface eth0 inet dhcp
auto wlan0
iface wlan0 inet dhcp
wpa-ssid <ssid>
wpa-psk <code>

  • nano more .config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

 @rdesktop -u <USER> -p <PASSWORD> -f -E -x l -z -P -r sound:local:alsa:default <IP ADDRESS>
#@leafpad /$HOME/PLEASE_README

and rebooted.

The system booted straight into my RD and I had a powerful RPi!

TODO: Get this to work with XBMC!!!  This will be the bomb!
