  3. Current NComputing L-series vSpace Software release - the full installation process requires the installation of two separate packages* (vspace-l_3.1.3-r7613_ubuntu-10.04_i686_Install_1st.deb and vspace-l-os_3.1.3r7613_ubuntu-10.04_i686.deb or newer)

  6. Internet Connection

Be sure to fully review the Release Notes supplied with the vSpace release you are installing.

Installing Ubuntu 10.04.2 and vSpace You can locate and download Ubuntu 10.04.2 from: Please use only a clean image as vSpace is designed for the kernel and packages included in the released 10.04, 10.04.1, and 10.04.2 LTS Desktop version.

  1. Download the Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS PC (Intel x86) desktopCD
  2. Create Ubuntu 10.04.2 System CD-R
  3. Insert Ubuntu 10.04.2 Disk into System and Poweron/boot the Ubuntu Install screen opens with options for trying Ubuntu 10.04.2 without changing the system, and installing the distribution directly on the hard drive. Select the desired language and click the “Install Ubuntu 10.04.2 LTS“ button.
  4. Select Region and Time Zone and then click “Forward“
  5. Select Keyboard Layout and click “Forward“
  6. Select how you want the disk space configured – typically “Erase and use entire disk“ and then click “Forward“

  8. Review the selections on the “Ready to Install“ page, and if satisfied, click “Forward“
  9. After the system reboots, login and Go to System > Administration > Update Manger to apply the latest Ubuntu updates
  10. Store the vSpace install packages onto the desktop of your clean Ubuntu 10.04.2 installation and double-click on the “install_1st“ vSpace install package. When the “Package Installer“ window pops up, click on “Install Package“
  11. Before the vSpace install begins, Ubuntu will ask for your administrator credentials:
  12. Wait while package dependencies are downloaded and the first portion of vSpace is installed
  13. During the install you may get the “An error occurred while loading or saving configuration information …“ message shown below. Simply click “OK“ to dismiss the error message, and then be sure to accept the EULA.
  14. After the first portion of the install completes, you may see a message that only applies if you used the Ubuntu dpkg install method instead of double-clicking on the install package desktop icon. It’s ONLY if you used dpkg, that you will need to follow the instructions shown.
  15. When installation is complete, you’ll be reminded to that the vSpace software and the access devices need to be registered and activated.
  16. Now double-click the “vspace-l-os“ .deb file to complete the vSpace installation. When the popup window opens, click the “Install Package“ button.
  17. Once again, enter the administrator credentials to allow the install to continue.
  18. This 2nd install will take just a few seconds, and when it is complete, click “Close“ to dismiss the window.
  19. Now click the upper left-hand corner power icon (which turned RED when installing the first vSpace package) and Reboot your Ubuntu system.
  20. After the System Reboot, users can connect to the system.

Using the vSpace Administration Console Window

After reboot, type-in or click-on a username with administrative rights and enter its password into the login screen, to bring up the Ubuntu Desktop. Then on the menu taskbar, click on: “System > Administration > NComputing Console” This starts the vSpace Administration Console launch, and then you will be required to enter the “administration rights” password – to verify that you have appropriate permissions to run the console. When vSpace is initially installed, it starts an automatic a “30-day Trial Period.” During this trial period, the user has complete access to all features of the software to allow evaluation of the product. To use the product beyond this “30 day trial period”, the software must be registered. Also during the trial period, an L-series connected user session will only operate for a 1-hour period. At the end of the hour, the session will be terminated. A new session can be started by the user logging in again from their L-series access device.

Registering Your Product

An Internet connection is required for on-line registration. To start the registration process for your L-series access devices and the vSpace for Linux on this system, click on the “Manage Registration” icon in the upper left-hand side of the admin console window. The vSpace Registration Wizard will then walk you through the product registration process.

Click “Next” to proceed The wizard presents the “End User License Agreement” window, and you must click on the “I agree” box to proceed to the next step. The wizard then takes you to the “Type of Registration” screen. Regardless of whether you want to register your vSpace software and L-series access devices online or off-line, make sure the “Register vSpace server software” radio button is selected, and click “Next.” The wizard then takes you to the “Customer Information” window, and you must fill in all the fields provided to continue to the next step. At the “Customer Data” screen, if the data fields are not already populated, enter the registered user's relevant information. Each field in this window must be filled in. (Fields still needing data entry are highlighted in light red.) Once all customer data has been entered, click on the “Next” button. The registration wizard then shows a list of all registered and unregistered L-series access devices that currently have virtual desktop connections to this vSpace host. You cannot select which devices will be registered – all unregistered devices shown in this list will be registered

Online Registration

In the case of Online Registration, follow the instructions below. Otherwise skip to the section titled “Offline Registration”. If you want to register your vSpace software and L-series access devices online, make sure the “Register online, using your internet connection” radio button is selected, and click “Next.” Click on the “Use tunnel connection through local HTTPS proxy server” box if you normally access the Internet at your location through a proxy server. Clicking the box enables you to fill in the proxy server IP address and the port number to use.

Before the registration wizard communicates with the registration server, you will get the following “Summary” screen showing all user information that will be registered with the vSpace software. Also, any connected but unregistered L-series access devices will be listed for registration. .

If the data is correct, click on the “Next” button or click “Back” if you wish to change any of the information Clicking “Next” tells the registration wizard to go ahead and contact the online registration server. Then the “Progress of activation” status screen is displayed. Once the installation wizard completes its communications with the online registration server, the “registration results” window is displayed. If the registration was successful, you’ll get “Registered customer data and Software and device license information” – the “Trial Period” status is removed from the vSpace software, and it is replaced with a standard software license. (License number provided on this screen.) Be sure to click the check box for the “Register future L-series devices in the background” option, if you want vSpace to automatically register any unregistered L-series access devices that connect to this system in the future. Use of this “background registration” feature requires standard Internet connectivity. If you get the “Customer data was not registered” message in the Registration Results screen, then the registration process failed, and the vSpace software stays in “Trial Mode.”

Adding new users

If you have not yet created Users for this Linux installation, now is a good time to do so using the Linux GUI. Or You can launch a Terminal console with sufficient rights to create new users Enter the command “sudo adduser <username>” (The variable username refers to the userid or name of the user which should be created, and for the first “sudo” command, you will be prompted for the administrative password before the “adduser” command is executed.) (sudo is the “superuser do” command, and in this context it executes a single “adduser”command as the “superuser”) For example: sudo adduser user2 For each new user, the system asks a series of questions needed to create the account. After all questions have been answered, the new user will be active on the system and he/she can login at any NComputing L-series access device with network access to this system.

The L-series Administration Console for Linux The Ncomputing System console provides current data on the L-series sessions and USB assignment. The product information screen shown below provides vSpace version information and contact information.
