Subject: x2goclient account requires manual setup

Package: x2gothinclient
Severity: wishlist

Package creates /home/x2goclient and all the required subdirectories, if 
not present, but fails to create the user account and set its group 
This leads to an error about chown x2goclient:x2goclient 
(somedirectoryname) not being possible.

Current workaround: useradd x2goclient
(Note that this will create a locked account, as shown by the "!" in the 
password field in /etc/shadow)

These commits should fix the missing x2gothinclient (formerly:  
x2goclient) user on X2Go TCEs, if the x2gothinclient package got  
installed manually (e.g. on minimal Debian systems):

 x2gothinclient ( RELEASED; urgency=low
   [ Mike Gabriel ]
   * New upstream version (
     - When X2Go TCE has plymouth installed, make sure pressing the
       halt button does not change to the wrong tty.
     - Truncate echo output lines to less than 80 chars.
     - Use sed to patch initramfs configuration (rather than a patch
       that fails on wheezy). The change is needed for squeeze only.
     - Fix x2go_tce_shell.sh script, escape braces.
     - Change method of mounting /proc, /sys and /dev inside of chroots.
     - Step towards wheezy, enable plymouth boot splash.
     - Symlink /etc/mtab to /proc/mounts before installing any kernel
       during the chroot creation process.
     - Handle /etc/fstab in TCE chroot differently for squeeze and wheezy
       (/dev/pts does not need an entry in fstab on wheezy systems, /var/run
       got relocated to /run).
     - /etc/network/interfaces in wheezy already contains a loopback device
     - Mount proc and sysfs from outside chroot, cleanly unmount both in case
       there are more than one mountpoints for sysfs or proc mounted.
     - Do not fail if proc or sysfs are already mounted within chroot.
     - Allow thin client management (x2gothinclient_shell,
       x2gothinclient_upgrade) while thin clients are in use.
     - Disable kms for radeon and i915 graphics adapters.
     - x2gothinclient_shell now does not affect boot behavious of the TCE
       machines anymore, thus, removing the notification output when
       launching the X2Go TCE maintenance shell.
     - Drop i686 kernel support, use i486 kernel by default. In Debian wheezy
       we only find a 686-pae kernel which fails on some (virtual)   
hardware (e.g.
     - Make sure that kernel + initrd symlinks are relative symlinks.
     - Keep mounts for /proc and /dev/pts with option noauto for   
mounting inside
       of chroot. They are not needed during TCE boot.
     - Make the SSH daemon listen on IPv4 localhost address only.
     - Provide /dev/pts inside chroot.
     - Move configuration template from /usr/share/tce to /usr/share/tce/etc.
     - Add direct FreeRDP support for defaults TCE installation.
     - Add empty known_host file for FreeRDP.
     - Start with US keyboard as default keyboard layout.
     - Only mount /proc, /sys, /dev/pts inside chroot if not already mounted.
     - Xorg appears as /usr/bin/X in ps ax output. Make sure it gets detected.
     - Provide a README.hostname file in doc folder of   
     - For TCE stations with multiple heads, align heads next to each other
       in order of appearance in xrandr.
     - Fix multi-head detection failures where xrandr writes output to stderr
       (closes upstream issue #48).
     - Rename x2goclient user to ,,x2gothinclient'' user (system user  
       Make sure that the system user account gets created during
       x2gothinclient_create and during installation of the x2gothinclient
       package (closes upstream issue #47).
     - x2gothinclient_create: replace /home by /var/lib/x2gothinclient in
       /etc/fstab template.
     - x2gothinclient_update: make sure config target folders exist.
     - x2gothinclient_create: syntax fix, spotted by Thomas Güttler   
(Fixes: #95).
     - Export $LANG and $LANGUAGE to TCE daemon.
     - Use qx instead of open3 to launch x2goclient. (Fixes: #66).
     - Only make x2gousbmount and x2gognupgccid scripts functional if
       x2gothinclientd is running.
     - When finishing x2gothinclientd, wait when killing processes till all
       processes have vanished. Only kill processes owned by user   
     - When finishing x2gothinclientd, make sure no dbus-* processes remain.
     - Unmount /proc, /sys and /dev/pts before doing x2gothinclient_cleanup.
     - Add README.qemu that explains how to test the X2Go TCE with qemu.
       (Fixes: #115).
     - Fix code that turns absolute symlinks into relative symlink   
for /vmlinuz
       and /initrd.img.
     - Fix shutdown button failures.
     - TCE management: Do an apt-get clean after TCE creation/upgrade.
     - TCE creation: fix installation path of FreeRDP's known_hosts file.
     - TCE creation: install the TCE from the nightly builds while this
       project is not yet released. (Fixes: #251).
     - TCE creation: default to wheezy for creating new TCE environments.
