Bug Description

Binary package hint: edubuntu-live

When installing Edubuntu 11.04 the user may choose to install unity or not.
In all cases unity-3d and unity-2d are installed on the target system but the default session is set to a classic gnome desktop unless the user chooses unity in the installer.

This works fine for a regular desktop but not when installing LTSP. When installing LTSP, thin clients will always use unity even if it wasn't selected at install time.

The easiest way to fix this is to modify /var/lib/tftpboot/ltsp/i386/lts.conf to add:
  LDM_SESSION="gnome-session --session=ubuntu"

To the default section. Sadly this doesn't work either as the new ldm ignores LDM_SESSION. I pushed a fix in the upstream branch so this will be fixed in the next upstream release.

Currently the only known workaround is:

  * When installing with classic desktop,
    make sure LTSP also uses it. (LP: #770323)
