Flash vulnerable

I'm running porteus kiosk 3.2.0 with flash plugin enabled (not legacy). Browsing is limited to a single domain, and one of the pages uses Flash (which can't be avoided). Firefox is set to restart after 10 minutes of inactivity. After a short time the kiosk throws a grey page with "Flash plugin is vu...

Incorrect time

My kiosk is setup to show a webpage which includes some realtime logging information from another server. The log times shown by Porteus Kiosk are wrong. I can view the same page on my own PC and the time is correct. As far as i can tell, the wizard doesn't include any option to set timezone, get ti...

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.0 feedback

My students have found an easy way to "hack" my porteus kiosk. I have set Porteus Kiosk up with the following: - set desktop wallpaper - screensaver off - start browser fullscreen - set browser homepage - browser resets after 10mins of inactivity we have only a mouse attached, and no keyboard. Seems...

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.0 beta feedback

@qbicdesign if you are impatient you can unsquash 003-settings.xzm and just delete squashfs-root/home/guest/.mozilla/firefox/c3pp43bg.default/extensions/{3d7eb24f-2740-49df-8937-200b1cc08f8a} from it and create new ISO. Found an easy way to do this without unsquahing it myself. I just ran the wizar...

Re: Porteus-ARM for the Raspberry Pi

I'm posting this from Porteus running on the Raspberry Pi!! It's pretty slow, but the Pi is slow in general. Great work Ahau!!! I must admit to most of the content of this thread being totally over my head, buts its exciting stuff anyway. I just bought a Raspberry Pi Model B, with the intention of ...

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.0 beta feedback

Thanks so much for the reply - not sure I'm brave/patient enough to step into unsquashing just yet, but maybe - who knows? All in all, I'm more than happy with this kiosk, its by far the easiest, most lightweight, and best featured browser kiosk I have tried (and I've tried lots). A little off topic...

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.0 beta feedback

Looks like this is working nicely now with v2.0.1 With the browser closing automatically, and with a logo as my wallpaper, it looks like I have a nice screensaver. Screen doesn't go blank anymore. Very cool My next issue should be simple (but nothing ever is): The URL I'm directing my kiosk to is es...

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.0 beta feedback

I have the following comments/suggestions: 1. I found that although I chose to disable the screensaver in the wizard setup, my screen still blanks after 10mins 2. It would be great if there was an option to install mscore fonts in the wizard. Many sites don't look right without the basic MS fonts. 3...

Disabling Screensaver doesn't work

I ran the kiosk wizard, choosing to disable screensaver , but after 10 or 15mins of inactivity the screen goes blank - this seems to be the default behaviour in many distros.
How can I stop that from happening?
