Suggestion: Adding java install option to KISOK wizard

Post#1 by patx » 22 Aug 2013, 18:45

Hello,


I have been playing with Porteus KIOSK edition and i think its great :D !!!!

The only thing that i think is missing is openjdk7 and the icedtea-7-plugin to enable java applets in firefox.

It would be nice to have the option to install those into the KIOSK wizard.


Thank you.

thread moved to the Kiosk section of the forum.

two big items are coming for next kiosk release:
- printing support
- web version of the wizard (similar one to our standard edition)
and it may take few weeks to implement these.

Java support does not require messing with the ISO directly so i can bring it without bumping the kiosk version.
will update the wizard and push java module on the server tomorrow/Saturday and post notification in this thread once done.

EDIT:\\
java module and updated wizard are on the server now. please test and report if something is missing.

Thankx Hamza for the link,

@fanthom;

The java test is now OK on java website but i still have some issues...

If i go to my Ulteo server login page the textbox to enter your login and pass does not always show... if i close firefox, wait till it re-opens and go to my ulteo login page again sometimes it will show sometimes it wont... When it does show, if i enter my credentials there is the normal loading wait time but instead of showing my browser desktop i am kind of kicked out of my session and i have to struggle again with the textbox showing or not... i never gain acces to my online desktop.

When using my ubuntu firefox everything is fine and i can login to my ulteo online desktop, all i had to do to make it work on the ubuntu is install openjdk-7-jre and icedtea plugin.

edit: It is working with porteus-RAZOR latest edition with your java plugin installed...

My goal is to make the perfect thinclient iso for an Ulteo setup, what i need is pxe, linux, browser, java and ssh to debug.

some packages (or even single files) must be still missing in kiosk. i can try to track them down but need an access to a sample 'ulteo online desktop' so i'll know when to stop.
if this is possible - please send me URL/login/password/etc to fanthom@porteus.org

this may be a time consuming process so i may never succeed and you'll have to find whats needed yourself.

Ok thank you very much, for now i am testing all of this setup on vboxes on my laptop, let me install everything under a xenserver at my home for better reliability, my laptop usually move a lot :D. I will send you the credentials somewhere in the beginning of next week as soon as the setup is up and running
