Installation issues / Owncloud loses LMCE configuration.
« on: July 11, 2015, 09:02:30 pm »
Hi Folks

Just installed 12.4 on my brand new PC, 8.10 wouldn't run on my new machine.

Decided to install owncloud and it worked no problem, but it has lost all the LMCE configurations, it looks nothing like the screen shots  on .

The CSS style is gone and there is no links to LMCE storage.

Checking the system version. it has installed 8.1 of owncloud the latest release.

Is this a big problem for me, No, but I am pretty sure this isn't good for the work done by ochorocho (please correct me if I have the wrong name.)

The last time I install 12.4 in the early stages, owncloud looked pretty cool, I loved the way it looked like the LMCE forum.

This maybe something worth looking into.


No problem at all.

Brilliant, thanks for the reply.

Hi posde

Thanks for the reply, but I can confirm its not in 10,4, however when I ran update to upgrade firefox, I do see these options in the lmce-admin for a proxy  and web filter but  when you  click them, you get the below error.

Not a valid section

I guessing these are for the release of 12.4


Just want to post this here future reference hope LMCE team don't mind, and for any one looking for transparent proxy the below works, I have it working on Linuxmce 10.4

remember I  am not responsible  if your machine breaks. but again I just want some were to future reference.

I respect the fact that squid in been worked on for the new up coming releases. as per
and well done to the dev's.

Here'ss my quick notes to get it working  (some wording is taken from &  )

Thank's to these wiki pages they helped a lot

sudo apt-get install squid3
edit squid3 config 
nano /etc/squid3/squid.conf
http_port 3128 to http_port 3128 transparent
Find the "acl localhost src" line and insert the following line below: "acl dcerouterlocalnet src"
Under the line is one that reads "http_access allow localhost". Below this you need to insert a line allowing your local LAN; "http_access allow dcerouterlocalnet. Now save the file, and exit.

apt-get install dansguardian
nano /etc/dansguardian/dansguardian.conf
change filter port to  8081 and proxyip =

/etc/init.d/apache2 restart
/etc/init.d/dansguardian stop
/etc/init.d/dansguardian start
sudo /etc/init.d/squid3 restart

Edit file /usr/pluto/bin/ from terminal

nano /usr/pluto/bin/ OR  vi /usr/pluto/bin/

NOTE: check ifconfig to figure out what lan card has static address  eht0 or eth1  change the eth in the forward port rule to match lan card of static ip address from LMCE .ie

Add the below line  in just under the heading # Set some default firewall parameters before opening ports

iptables -A PREROUTING -t nat -i eth0 -p tcp --dport 80 -j REDIRECT --to-port 8081

Then close and save  and reboot the system, visit to check if proxy is working.

The normal firewall forwarding rule would not work even if  you enable it, so my work around was to setup upon booting the core.

Install proxy graph to view the hits and page catches, follow the following link.

Create cronjob under root  to update chart 

crontab -e

Add the following line

*/5 * * * * cd /etc/init.d/squid-graph && ./squid-graph --tcp-only -n -o=/var/www/squid-graph/ --title="Give your report a title " < /var/log/squid3/access.log

CD into /etc/init.d/squid-graph and edit the file  nano squid-graph to add auto refresh to the html report for every 6 minutes

Locate the below line
print IDX "<H1>$title</H1>\n";

And add the below line under it

print IDX "<meta http-equiv=\"refresh\" content=\"360\" \n";

My apologies, when he said memory I taught he was referring to ram, as basic  user, is it something I can fix ?


ah I only have 1gb memory applied, I have upped it to 3gb, don't understand it dropping the  tough.

will run it again.


Thats strange J, I will up the memory, but it dropping for is strange, would you say there is a reason for this?


OK its done,  but its to big for pastebin

So I have uploaded it to one of my server

Please advise


No problem, its in middle of running, I will post the log.

Don't mean to hijack this topic, but today  I  decided to install 14.4 latest snap shot.  DVD ! install wen't good except  on the first boot there was no access to lmce-admin and no access to the internet on the internal network, however there was access to the internet on the core from the external nic,  quick update and upgrade and then a dist-upgrade fixed the issue, well at least from me.

Powered on the MD to set it up,  but up ran into tftboot not available. so I ran the  and ended up with the same issue below at the end of it trying to install.
Package pluto-orbiter failed (/opt/Diskless_CreateTBZ.DVMafPyAN) - We wait 10sec and try again - to stop retrying press Ctrl-C.

In the middle of re-running it  again, but until it's installed correctly I have no MD'S

No issue on 10.4 on the same setup.

I don't know if this a bug as I am just a basic user. but may worth looking into.
