change language, add fonts

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.

change language, add fonts

Post#1 by grafa » 13 May 2014, 11:45

Hello!

I tried to use Porteus 3.0 in Kiosk Version for our library and its very nice!
But 2-3 things must be customized.

1. Can I change the language of firefox (or is this the systemlanguage?) with the rootcopy-directory to german?
2. How can I add MS Fonts on te easiest way? I'm not so good in linux-configuring

Thanks! :)

please read Kiosk FAQ (on the main page) how to perform manual kiosk ISO customizations.
i have seen a thread about MS fonts somewhere in kiosk section of the forum and lang pack should be installed the same way as normal firefox addon.

good luck!
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

thanks a lot! with the languapge pack i was successfull.
my version, if anybody want to do the same with languagepack:

- unpack iso-file to i.e. /tmp/iso
- unsquash 003-settings.xzm
- languagepack download from ftp://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/mozilla.org/f ... R_LANGUAGE
- copy the .xpi to /tmp/ISO/porteus/base/squashfs-root/home/guest/.mozilla/firefox/c3pp43bg.default/extensions
- edit the pref.js (i.e. install the addon at the linux-machine where you customize the Kiosk-ISO and copy the new entries in the pref.js from your KIOSK-ISO).
(in my case it was 1 entry, user_pref("extensions.bootstrappedAddons", ........................)
- create the module again: mksquashfs squashfs-root 003-settings.xzm -b 256K -Xbcj x86 -noappend
- delete squashfs-root
- create the ISO again with make_iso.sh

thanks to the members of this thread: viewtopic.php?f=102&t=1741
