Crserver and Crappfaker Startup Scripts

 

In order to manually start chromium, you'd need to ssh to each boba machine connected to a display and run the crserver command. The following scripts do this automatically, thus making life easier.

If you setup your config file to use the AutoStart feature, or you are using Vizard, a Tiling Script, or the GUI Toolkit, then you will not need these scripts.

You will need to modify the directories, which have been indicated with <path_to_*> and <username>. These shell scripts can be placed anywhere you'd like.

vwall: Holds the list of boba machine numbers.
setup_wall.sh: Runs the setup_client.sh script on each boba machine, then starts crappfaker.
setup_client.sh: Sets path variables, runs vidwal script, and sends crserver command.

(Thanks to Charlie Wiseman for making these scripts.)
