Add a static application to OVD subsystem


The appllications installed via the package management system can be directly added to the desktop by adding them to the application group.

In order to install applications that are not packaged (called static applications in OVD taxonomy), follow the instructions from this article.

As an exemple, we are going to install Salome (the open-source integration platform for numerical simulation).

How to create your own OVD subsystem

The default subsystem provided by Ulteo is an Ubuntu Lucid 32-bit. This page explains how to create an OVD subsytem in Debian Squeeze 64-bit.

An OVD subsystem is basically a chroot with some extra packages to provide Ulteo OVD functionalities. Ulteo provides packages for Ubuntu Lucid and Precise, and Debian Squeeze. For Debian Wheezy, some packages are missing (mainly uxda-server) that prevent to install a subsystem based on Debian Wheezy. See http://archive.ulteo.com/ovd/4.0/ for available operating systems packages.

How to install Ulteo OVD


The installation is quite simple if you just need to install all Ulteo parts (session manager, applications subsystem, web portal) on the same server.

Once the system is installed, you still need to configure the acces rights by following the steps described in this article.
