Access

Access to all departmental computer labs is granted to all students who are enrolled in at least one course tought by department of cybernetics.

Password

  • You can set the login password for the computer labs at https://cw.felk.cvut.cz/password.
  • To set the password in the lab, it is possible to login using username: problem and password: login. To log out, press CTRL+Q.

Changing your password

You can change your password using passwd command run from terminal app (Applications->Terminal). The change will apply on all workstations immediately.

Home directory

Each student has a home directory on server k333stu1 with at least 2GB of disk space. For a temporary storage of a larger volume of data you can use /local/temporary/ directory: the data are accessible from the current workstation only and are erased once a day. Data in your home directory are accessible from all workstations and are not erased. You can access your data from a distant machine using the scp protocol connecting to k333stu1.felk.cvut.cz. For Windows, you can use e.g. Winscp app.

Virtual Windows 7

After login to linux, you can run virtual Windows 7 using menu item Applications->K13133 SW->Windows 7 32-bit. It takes about 1 minute to load Windows. You can login to Windows with the same name and password as used for Linux.

Your Linux home directory is accessible from Windows as a network drive \\K333STU1\USERNAME and it is mapped as drive R: by default. All the data you want to preserve shall be stored there; your virtual Windows home directory (C:\Users\username) is not persistent and will be deleted after logout.

After finishing your work in virtual Windows, you need to switch off the virtual machine (Shutdown).

Changing the desktop manager

After the first login, Gnome 2 will load. You can change this default behavior in the ~/.xsession file:

echo "exec wmaker" > ~/.xsession
chmod +x ~/.xsession

Instead of wmaker, you can use other Desktop/Window manager:

  • windowMaker : wmaker
  • XFCE4: startxfce4
  • LXDE: startlxde
  • FVWM 2 : fvwm2
  • IceWM: icewm
