Veyon is free and Open Source so you don't have to buy a license. In case you want to use some of the commercial add-ons (such as Internet Access Control or Network Discovery) for extra functionalities, you can buy licenses for these add-ons separately.
Hi @tobydox ,
it's much better now.
When the Linux client starts, its login screen is displayed correctly in veyon-master.
If a user then logs in, his screen is also displayed correctly in Veyon-master.
If the user logs off again immediately, the login screen is no longer displayed in veyon-master.
If a user logs in again, his screen is displayed correctly again. If this user logs off after a few minutes, the login screen is displayed correctly.
Well, even if the login screen is not displayed, you can work well with this version of veyon.
@tbuller Probably the download somehow failed? I just downloaded the file and it has a size of around 1.8 MB. Alternatively use our PPA so you benefit from automatic updates and better dependency resolving upon installation.
@hammergil I admit the (free community) support has been poor in the last weeks to due holidays (also the development of Veyon 5 takes quite some resources). I'm confident we'll fix the Ubuntu issue in the next weeks, even though you seem to have found another solution.
Veyon Master does not require any administrator rights to run. When trying with a non-admin user, did you try a local or domain user? In case of domain users, did you properly prepend the domain, i.e. MYDOMAIN\user? Did you also disable the "Perform access control" option in the master configuration (https://docs.veyon.io/en/latest/admin/reference.html#behaviour)?
After much time spent trying to get veyon to work on my Ubuntu 18.04 lab, and many days and weeks with not much support, I decided to end the suffering and move on. I did find an affordable paid option that I am using right now and it works great. Not only that but I did have a few issues after first install and the developer scheduled a zoom meeting with me on the same day of purchase and we got it all ironed out.
So, if you are using Ubuntu and like me are stumped. If you are looking for an affordable solution, I can recommend Classroom Spy at classroomspy.com. Does the same thing as Veyon and I think I paid a 1-time cost of $699 for 25 computers.
