I am working with edubuntu to create a LTSP server. I need to have control over the desktops of the client as this will be implemented in a school environment. I have several LTSP 4 servers running on CentOS with KDE 3.5 using the kioskadmintool to manage the desktops.

Is there similar functionality with Edubuntu and LTSP 5? Is is consolidated in a convenient tool or do I need several tools to manage it?

I do not need to stay with KDE. Thanks.

You should be able to install italc and then control the users desktop with it.

sudo apt-get install libitalc italc-client italc-master

epoptes allows thin and fat client control, including WOL to power on the clients. It is included in the edubuntu install
