Hi..i am a new user here. As per my knowledge it is similar to Scratch only. Scratch is one of the most popular pieces of software on Raspberry Pi. This is largely due to the way it makes programming accessible – while it is simple to learn, it covers many of the concepts that are used in more advanced languages. Scratch really does provide a great introduction to programming for all ages.
Thanks for your interest in Veyon! Veyon is intended to be used to control graphical user sessions so in your server environment it probably won't work the way you need it, except for dedicated remote desktop sessions. Veyon has full LDAP/AD support for retrieving computer and room information as well as user and group information used for access control.
We currently do not have a webbased version of Veyon but starting with Veyon 5 (2019) we'll have new technical possibilities also allowing to run Veyon Master in a browser using WebGL.
Cheers for the reply and the information Toby.
Not a problem at all. I understand that you don't have the unlimited resources that other software developers are blessed with. Which is why you deserve massive credit for what you've created and continue to improve on so far.
I'll let anybody I know who has some experience with C++ about Veyon and hopefully they may be able to help in anyway.
of course you can simply disable the systemd unit veyon-service and run veyon-server from whatever start script is suitable in your environment (Xsetup, XDG autostart etc.). You'll however will not benefit from the integrated service management functionalities as well as multi-session support.
even though we do not (yet) provide pre-compiled 32 bit packages this doesn't mean Veyon doesn't work on 32 bit You can simply build packages for your platform and distribution on your own as described in the README file.
Hi @tonypace Veyon should work on all of your machines but for the 32 bit machines you'll have to build binary packages on your own - see https://github.com/veyon/veyon/blob/master/README.md for details
On your modern x64 machines you can use the binary package provided for Ubuntu 18.04 (when using Veyon 4.1 Beta which I suggest for new installations).
Veyon Master might consume lots of RAM depending on how many computers you are monitoring so if you're running many other applications in parallel 2 GB might not be sufficient.
Hi @rbaca - did you take a look at our admin manual at htts://docs.veyon.io ? It describes all the fundamentals. On Linux please download the suitable binary package for your Linux distribution and install it. Afterwards you'll likely have to run "apt-get -f install" which will install all missing dependencies (repositories for easy installation are being worked on). If you install Veyon 4.1 Beta you have automatic service integration and do not need to add the Veyon Service to autostart (which is required for Veyon 4.0 - see INSTALL file for details).
