Launch Firefox on Kiosk ThinClient load [Solved]

Post#1 by colingchong » 23 Apr 2017, 01:34

Hello,

I have a pre-configured HomePage using Firefox that has 4 approved websites for a Kids Computer lab.

How can I make Firefox launch when the Porteus Kiosk ThinClient loads?

Thanks for any help with this

Lord Bless

Use this:

Code: Select all

run_command=sed -i 's/#su - guest/su - guest/' $scripts/gui-app
if you want to execute two or more commands upon startup then please check our documentation:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.html#run_command

Thanks
