I just tested porteus kiosk interface with the printer option. It works just fine. 8)

Hp printers and brother printers, should be recognized easily. They hp laserjet 3030 and brother printers brother MFC 7860-DW are readily recognized out of the box by porteus kiosk.

There is an access to the cups interface to customize or test the printer interface.

The interface is simple and clean. Easy to use.

Good work fanthom.
Carpe diem.

When do you integrate the printing feature in the Kiosk-wizzard?

Kind regards,

hi Sorcuring,

apologize it takes so long but as per our bandwidth related problems:
viewtopic.php?f=35&t=3356
and my plan for introducing 'automatic updates' service for kiosk:
viewtopic.php?f=35&t=3283

i have decided to move the kiosk on another server:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/

website is not ready yet and brokenman is busy with rewriting the wizard to the gtkdialog version (several reasons for that - i'll post more about this next week):

please give us extra week or two and printing support for kiosk should be finally available among some other new features :)
