 sorry I should have said, I did include [Default] at the top of the

I had another bash at it and it appears that my issue may have a little
to do with this bug
(https://launchpad.net/distros/ubuntu/+source/ltsp-utils/+bug/22134 ) 

I changed SCREEN_01 to SCREEN_07 and bingo, i can log in. Although I
still have problems.

An amendment I have to my original post point 5. Does not give a
terminal login as stated but gives the LDM. But no "beep".

I suspect that the beep is a system beep directed through the sound

crtl + alt + f2 gives this:
root at ltsp:/#
Ubuntu 6.04 "Dapper Drake" Development Branch ltsp tty2

ltsp login:

so i type student and get:

bash: student: command not found
root at ltsp:/#

I type 'ls /dev/dsp' and get:


then what ever you type is echoed to the screen !

then the whole process starts again from ltsp login:

I have spotted that during startup if i press ctrl + alt + f1 then ctrl
+ alt + f8 I get some messages one of which is reporting
that /lib/udev/iftab_helper exited abnormally 
and that /var/cache/man, /etc/hotplug/.run and /var/lib/xfree86 could
not be found.

I don't know if that is significant or not.

Kind regards
