Anyway - your soundcard is initialized and seems to be working: SOUND CARDS: **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: Intel [HDA Intel], device 0: ALC662 rev1 Analog [ALC662 rev1 Analog...

Install latest Chromium instead of Chrome in Porteus kiosk 32-bit 3.7.0

Yes, all you need to do is to resolve missing libs (gtk3 and similar), add gtk3 theme, icons, etc. Mind that: a) Firefox 52.x ESR requires pulseaudio for sound (or at least apulse) b) Firefox in version 52+ wont support NPAPI plugins (java, citrix, pipelight, djvulibre, etc) except for flash c) Fire...

Install latest Chromium instead of Chrome in Porteus kiosk 32-bit 3.7.0

@link08 Even if you resolve all missing libs then kiosk still wont work properly until you rewrite many kiosk functions to match chromium browser specification: - different application name (affects e.g. idle time parameter) - different window preferences (affects popup windows) - certificates and b...

How can I get IP address of my Porteus kiosk SERVER to connect porteus kiosk CLIENT?

Hi random,

In VirtualBox's VM settings you could attach the NIC to a bridged adapter and then you should be able to set static IP for the server. Use the same gateway, netmask and DNS server but different IP as the host PC has.

Thanks.

Redirect from blocked pages (or custom "blocked" page)

Whitelist redirection is possible with Firefox and "ProCon Latte" addon.

Fix Coordinate Transformation Matrix in config file

If you calibrate touchscreen in the wizard then rotate screen (screen_settings= parameter) then touch input should be rotated automatically.

Sample:

Code: Select all

screen_settings=HDMI-0:1920x1080:60.00:normal:left:normal

Configure usb port rule by wizzard

Hi Borisko, Is this query related to Kiosk? If yes then you need to remaster installation ISO and you could add your rule to 003-settings.xzm/sbin/udev-automount-disabled script (scan dmesg and check for specific vendor/product id before mounting). Then enable support for removable devices in the wi...

silent or scripted install

You could install all the kiosks just once, enable 'automatic updates' service and forget about them.

For schools we could offer up to 75% discount to original price:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/automatic-updates.html#fees

Please contact sales@porteus-kiosk.org if you are interested.

Thanks
