Configuration of the Thinkpad T470p laptop for a remote use.

Update GRUB settings

Install grub-customizer (not the best way, but do the job).

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:danielrichter2007/grub-customizer
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install grub-customizer

Open grub-cutomizer, change the boot order and set a timeout of 3 seconds.

Power management (lid closure)

Open logind.conf.

sudo vim /etc/systemd/logind.conf

Uncomment HandleLidSwitch and HandleLidSwitchExternalPower and set it to ignore.


Install SSH server

Install openssh-server and reboot (i didn’t found sshd.service).

sudo apt install openssh-server

On the client side, generate the SSH key and copy it to the turtle remote machine (will ask for password)

ssh-keygen -t rsa
ssh-copy-id turtle

Check if the SSH connection is asking again for a password.

ssh turtle
