Good afternoon I'm new to Porteus Kiosk, first thank you for a great job. I tell my problem, try to install the ISO Porteus-Kiosk-4.1.0-x86_64 and when I want to add the impreora HP Laserjet Pro Mfp M127fn USB, I asked for a password something like CUPS and not to password set and I can not install the printer.

Hello haven,

In order to access CUPS web interface you need to use following credentials:

Username: root
Password: some_password (root password which you set in the wizard)

This printer model wont work without proprietary hplip plugin:

It could be added to kiosk ISO through the customized builds:

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