Okay I have finished a beta version of Fl_TeacherTool for Edubuntu.
Here are the installation instructions. I have not tested everything.
I would recommend testing this on a sandbox first (just in case it
sends your server to /dev/null  :). Please send me bug reports.

to setup x11vnc on clients:
include -shared option in x11vnc command

there is an english version

but it did not have the cp sources.list line
Don't forget to exit the chroot

download fl-tt source from here

apt-get install build-essential
apt-get install libfltk1.1 libfltk1.1-dev
apt-get install libxpm-dev     for pixmaps
apt-get install vnc4server
apt-get install xtightvncviewer
apt-get install zlib1g-dev
apt-get install libjpeg-dev
apt-get install xscreensaver

untar my tarball then
make && make install

chmod +x /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc

as root
edit /etc/X11/app-defaults/XScreenSaver

near the beginning of the file there should be this line

*mode:                  random

replace the word "random" with "blank" (no quotes)

download vncreflector source code
from here

cp vncreflector /usr/bin

follow step 2-5 here for control/monitor

Hopefully I have not forgotten anything.
Oh, fl_teachertool must be run as root

Be patient with this version as it runs slower than it did on k12ltsp.

I am also currently developing version 0.50. Enjoy.
