Setting .Xauthority for admin to display remotely on client

This perl script will modify the ~admin/.Xauthority file with the keys for remote display on user client sessions.


As admin:

sudo ./admin_ltsp_xauth.plx ltsp20@
DISPLAY= xmessage -timeout 10 -center 'System is going down.'
import -display -window root ltsp20.jpg; eog ltsp20.jpg


This does a graphical wall, using who, calling ./admin_ltsp_xauth.plx for all clients.

As admin:

./ltsp_xmessage.plx ./
