switching tabs in Firefox when disabling the address bar

If I don't hide the address bar I can hot CTRL + Tab to switch back and forth between different open tabs in Firefox but if I hide the address bar I can only switch tabs one. As an example, I have two tabs that open automatically when I start my kiosk to two different sites. I can CTRL + Tab from th...

Re: Certificate importing issue

I never updated this but I ended up figuring out what I was doing wrong. Basically I had typed the path to the directory where the certificates were located but not the certificates themselves so I typed the filenames for the 3 certificates I needed to import it took care of my issue.

Certificate importing issue

We have an enterprise CA server so I don't really consider this a self signed certificate. We have an Ironport WSA web filter which acts as a transparent proxy. Users need to authenticate to the proxy before internet access is allowed which I already have addressed. My issue now is that because my k...

Re: Firefox Favorites

Awesome... thanks a lot.
On another note, are existing kiosks upgradable or would I have to redeploy with a new image for the new version?

Thanks

Firefox Favorites

I am trying to find out if there is a way to manage a list of favorites (bookmarks)for Firefox without having them all automatically open when I boot the system. I am using remote management and would like to be able to add or remove sites as needed but not necessarily have those sites as a homepage...

HTTPS Remote Management question

1st of all I want to thank the developers for an awesome job. I am loving the remote management function, the fact that NTP was integrated in the wizard and all the hard work they put into the latest version. I do have a question regarding the Remote management of the kiosks. I have setup an apache ...

Re: Assign Static IP to kiosk

I tried it shortly after asking the question but somehow I broke the ISO. It started booting and gets stuck on the porteus kiosk background and never finished booting to my home page.This could have something to do with the way I create my ISOs I am not sure but I have had similar results in the pas...

Re: Porting customizations to kiosk 3.1

Excellent answer... I like the idea of having one xzm with all my changes as it makes it easier to keep up with them.
I'll give it a try and report back.

Thanks again

Porting customizations to kiosk 3.1

I have some customizations that I would like to port to the new Kiosk version. The customizations are making use of the rootcopy directory which I understand is no longer used in the new version (3.1) and would like to know what the best way to port those would be. My customizations are a local html...

Re: Assign Static IP to kiosk

Thanks for the instructions. I looked at the rc.M file on my test system and this is what it has for the line you mentioned: # Initialize the networking hardware: [ -x /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 ] && . /etc/rc.d/rc.inet1 Also I found this line: # Set hostname: hostname porteus Could the hostname not be chan...

Re: Assign Static IP to kiosk

Ok, so I finally got around to working on this again. I corrected my typo and created a new ISO, installed it and when I boot the system, my homepage tells me cannot connect to the server. I figured out this is due to the fact that we killed dhcpcd and I have not defined a DNS server anywhere so I c...

Re: Assign Static IP to kiosk

it works for me: i have logged through ssh, ran 'hostname test' command and hostname changed from 'porteus' to 'test' immediately. please make sure you have 'hostname some_name' and not 'Hostname some_name' in your rc.local. I am not sure if we are on the same page.... I can run hostname TestKiosk ...

Re: Assign Static IP to kiosk

Thanks for the reply.... Sorry I admit I hadn't read what the changes were and I guess I should've started there. - Kiosk ISO content was simplified with three folders only: /boot, /docs and /xzm.- PXE boot does not support /rootcopy functionality so this folder was removed. From now on all files mu...

Re: Assign Static IP to kiosk

Fanthom I just saw your last post... I'll install that image once again and double check... I have been trying different versions to see if I could figure it out.

I'll post again as soon as I've tested.

Thanks
