nano

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

It work OK on porteus-RAZOR latest edition but on KIOSK i have this error:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# nano x
Error opening terminal: xterm.
but nano is installed as we can see with nano -h output:

Code: Select all

root@porteus:~# nano -h
Usage: nano [OPTIONS] [[+LINE,COLUMN] FILE]...

Option		GNU long option		Meaning
 -h, -?		--help			Show this message
...
Do i need to install xterm ?

ofc we do not need a text editor in kiosk. even more - it's the last thing i would install in kiosk as text editor allows unauthorized user to change settings and this is what we are trying to avoid.

in short: text editor will never be accepted in kiosk.

ofc users can add it themselves but they do it on their own risk.
to answer your question:

Code: Select all

nano -w /etc/shadow
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

I understand your position and rethinking about it, i think your probably right, its not really needed for the kiosk edition.

edit: i prefer vim to nano, here are the working vim files for the kiosk edition:
