[Solved] Unable to load configuration file

Post#1 by acidosolforico » 28 Aug 2016, 13:57

Hello,
i'm trying to install Porteus Kiosk in some computers in my school. I need only Chrome ad a white list of 3/4 URLs, not more. I tried to install a local environment in an USB stick and it works well. I would like to load a configuration file, so if in future i will need to change an URL, i can do only once.

This is my configuration file (txt. ANSI):
managed_bookmarks=http://www.istruzione.gov.it http://www.miur.it
homepage=http://www.istruzione.gov.it
hostname=kiosk_001
allow_icmp_protocol=yes
primary_keyboard_layout=it
right_mouse_click=yes
shutdown_combination=yes
timezone=Europe/Rome
vnc_interactive=yes
vnc_password=pw0001a
wallpaper=http://192.168.1.10/kiosk/kiosk.jpg
whitelist=http://www.istruzione.gov.it http://www.miur.it http://www.governo.it
additional_components=09-x11vnc.xzm uefi.zip


When I test during installation this file, it appears on screen, so it means it is reachable in my Lan.

After all I start Porteus Kiosk by USB stick and i have an error message: "Remote kiosk config is not accessible, was not parsed correctly (must be encoded with ANSI or UTF-8) or "kiosk_config=" parameter is not present in it. System configuration will not be update. Pleas report this issue to your system administrator

Obviously "kiosk_config=http://192.168.1.10/kiosk/kiosk.txt" was set correctly during configuration in the part of config file stored in the program.

Someone can help me ? This issue can be because i'm using a USB stick ?

I use Porteus_kiosk V4.0.0.

Thx in advance

Hello acidosolforico,

Please send me your http://192.168.1.10/kiosk/kiosk.txt file (must be original one, same file which is stored on your web server) to support@porteus.kiosk.org and i'll check it. Could be a matter of formatting.

Thank you.

I sent you the file, but hotmail says:

This is an automatically generated Delivery Status Notification.

Unable to deliver message to the following recipients, due to being unable to connect successfully to the destination mail server.

support@porteus.kiosk.org

I will try again.
