Re: [Solved] Allow user to shutdown using the power button

Too easy - the solution using the Slackware package works nicely.

Zytronic touch screens

Does anyone have any experience with Zytronic (zytronic.co.uk) touchscreens (probably ZXY100/ZXY200) with PKE. I've read the thread "Is Touchscreen Support Possible?". My client reports screen is completely unresponsive, suggesting no driver is loaded. They've contacted Zytronic who supposedly can s...

Re: [Solved] Allow user to shutdown using the power button

Actually, I'm glad to see this answer — I've been meaning to ask about it myself. Our client has kiosks which are locked away in cabinets. So, touch screens but no keyboard available to normal users. Power button shutdown could be a handy thing, especially since we have modified PKE to allow a write...

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.1 feedback

Many thanks for sending the .config file - I was able to compile the needed fs kernel modules. I also needed to use a more beefy version of busybox. Now I can mount/read/write/format drives :-)

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.1 feedback

OK, I might give that one more go. I'd like to keep the kernel trimmed if possible. I saw in another thread that you're reluctant to publicize the .config file for your kiosk's kernel. Would you be OK to email that to me (sam [at] sustainablesoftware.com.au)? Otherwise I'll try the vmlinuz monster m...

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.1 feedback

I'm pretty well across how the distro works now having played with it all day. I like the fact that it copies a read-only file system into RAM for the OS. "prepare new (updated) ISO locally" Nice idea - I hadn't thought of that approach. However, the kiosks have different combinations of content "mo...

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.1 feedback

One thing we'd like to do is sync content from a remote server onto the various kiosks - they are spread over remote locations in Australia - some of them very remote! If you'd like to see our client's kiosk network, take a look at this: http://www.hitnet.com.au/index.cfm?objectid=E60AAF51-5F05-11E0...

Re: Porteus Kiosk Edition v2.1 feedback

I've just started with this neat little distro. We replaced Firefox with a kiosk player application we are building that's based on node-webkit. I followed the FAQ - it went well - better than expected even. The only additional dependency needed was solved by slotting in the GConf module (008-GConf-...
