[solved] Need wifi support with no desktop

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.

[solved] Need wifi support with no desktop

Post#1 by notadonut » 04 Oct 2013, 17:18

I am new to Porteus. Is it possible to have the kiosk version (browser only, no desktop) and also have wifi connectability? Are printing capabilities possible without a desktop system?

Can the browser be modified to include more urls than what are already included?

Nevermind the printing question. Someone on another thread said it makes the size of the system really big.

Thanks. I see that it can.

But looking at the directions I can tell that I just don't have the know-how to do this stuff. I still have a lot of learning to do before I'm going to be able to put this on a computer.

Just have a try with a porteus cd or usb install. There is nothing better than experimenting. However, poteus standard edition might be more flexible for the use you intend. 8)
