How to restart a display (with an integrated ThinClient – without keyboard and mouse) on IGEL OS?


Question from a customer:

How can I restart a display (with an integrated ThinClient – without keyboard and mouse) and cleanly reload the Citrix session, which starts with autologin, if the device accidentally loses power and is switched on again?

Background: If the application is still loaded, it is in an undefined state and I cannot be sure that it will run properly.

The solution is as good as simple – what is happening:

(1) The first pnlogin contacts the disconnected Citrix session

(2) pnlogoff cleanly logs this session off and closes the application

(3) the second pnlogin restarts the session including the application

pnlogin; sleep 3; pnlogoff -f; sleep 3; clean_desktop; pnlogin

use these commands on finale desktop command section


And anyway to do just a disconnect ?


the disconnect is done by the powerloss


Ok, but thinking if I want to do just a disconnect, is there any command similar to pnlogoff?


You cannot bring back the full function of a published app after a reconnect sometimes. That customer wants to have a clear app state – so its not word or excel, its a special app.

a disconnect is easy, you only need to kill the Citrix Workspace app service


I had a command to disconnect session but now with the last version it asks about confirmation


killall wfica


Don’t do that


following, I need something like this too. sometimes the citrix session is hung and a logoff from the citrix client fixes it


-f forces a disconnect -l forces a log off


Cool


Killing wfica can lead to hung Citrix sessions


Yes, totally agreed


yes thats the plan

I you want to do this, that is command to do that


Thanks to everybody, I fixed one of my issues 🙂


so thats the right one:
