Problem

After thin client froze or network failed, you made hard restart of the thin client but user's desktop is empty - no background image and no icons.

Cause

It seams that the LTSP server does not understand that the thin client is restarted and the user session is still active. Our thin clients have dynamic IPs, so after restart the thin client receives new IP. The following solution just kills the user's session. I Never tested if this will happen if the thin client has static IP (assigned by MAC address).

Solution

Open terminal and kill user's session:

sudo skill -KILL -u username
