[Solved] Turn off Porteus Kiosk automatic updates

Post#1 by marcob » 22 Mar 2016, 00:44

I am looking for the list of config commands that I can use in the remote config for my porteus kiosk setup.

Specifically I am looking for how to turn off automatic updates. The trial expired and the kiosks I have running are crippled. What do I need to change?

Current config is:

[[ GLOBAL ]]
kiosk_config=https://x.x.local/Deploy/kioskconfig.txt
allow_icmp_protocol=yes
dhcp=yes
primary_keyboard_layout=us
browser=chrome
enable_dpms=yes
root_password=qwerty

homepage=http://intranet.x.x.au
wallpaper=https://x.x.local/Deploy/kiosk_wallpaper.jpg
whitelist=x.local x.x.au localhost chrome
connection=wired
network_interface=eth0
dhcp=yes

[[ device 1 - snip ]]
hostname=zxcv_kiosk
additional_components=08-ssh.xzm 10-printing.xzm
printer_connection=socket://10.2.0.60
printer_model=Lexmark MX711 Foomatic/Postscript

[[ device 2 - snip ]]
hostname=asdf_kiosk
additional_components=08-ssh.xzm 10-printing.xzm
printer_connection=socket://10.1.0.71
printer_model=Fuji Xerox DocuPrint CM305 df Foomatic/Postscript

Hello marcob,

"I am looking for the list of config commands that I can use in the remote config for my porteus kiosk setup."
Please have a look on the kiosk website in the documentation section.

"Specifically I am looking for how to turn off automatic updates. The trial expired and the kiosks I have running are crippled. What do I need to change?"
You have to reinstall your kiosks. There is a warning in the wizard which notifies about that.

Thank you.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
