How to provide an individual application on the Ulteo Open Virtual Desktop (OVD) Server

This how-to is for you if you want to provide an application for the EDIT Ulteo users that did not come with the Ulteo installation.

  • Log into the Administration Interface of Ulteo following this link: http://cdmeditor.bgbm.org/sessionmanager/admin/login.php

  • Change to Applications.

  • Change to Static applications.

  • Type in a name: Something descriptive. It will appear below the icon on the desktop.

  • Type in the command name: Including the full path if the command is not in $PATH of the Ulteo Accounts. Arguments if needed.

  • Click on Add.

  • Click on Manage next to the newly created Ulteo application (in the list above).

  • Choose a group (e.g. EDIT) from the drop-down-menu of available groups.

  • Click on Add to this group.

Now this new application is known to Ulteo and shown on the desktop of any user in the chosen (e.g. EDIT) group.


Log into to your Ulteo server, cd into /opt

Go to http://cybertaxonomy.eu/download/taxeditor/ and download the lasted stable version of the TaxonomicEditor suitable for your platform.
