Cant guarantee that.

Please query manufacturer directly and ask about linux compatibility for this hardware.

Thanks

Need an easy button for a post-install on screen keyboard

Hello gr362, If there was a decent virtual keyboard available (preferably implemented on the OS level) then we would have it as an option in the wizard long time ago. VK situation for Linux is as follows: a) vk extension for Chrome (pflmllfnnabikmfkkaddkoolinlfninn) works great in general but does n...

Thank you Ahau!

Yup - miss him.

When we started he took one of the most difficult tasks: maintaining documentation in fast evolving distro!

Feature request: Brave Browser

Hello taurolyon,

I have never heard about this browser. Will it last long (what if its development ceases after a year or two)?
I'm sure the Firefox and Chrome are here to stay so these would be our primary choices for kiosk.

Thanks

Hello helgewilliam,

You'll need a customized build with PulseAudio and 3rd party drivers to get the sound working on this device.

[Solved] Kiosk without network connection

If your CPU is 64bit then latest kiosk version is always recommended (many bugs fixes and new features).

Kiosk without network connection

Hello edsulst,

Are you using 3.7.0 release or latest?

Please setup static IP otherwise kiosk will wait for 2 minutes for 'gateway check' function to time out.
Other than that - i see no reason why this setup would not work.

Touchpad Not Working on ThinkPad 11e Laptop

Hello jeffgeno,

You can:

a) wait till new public kiosk release is out (probably October)
b) use free trial till it expires (you'll need to reinstall the system then)
c) buy updates subscription
d) buy customized build with latest updates

Thanks

Kiosk 4.8 Save ISO not saving to USB Drive

Hello woodrow,

"I just re-tested with the older 4.7 ISO that I had as well, and no luck with saving the ISO to the USB in the setup wizard, when I know it used to work."
This function works for sure. It must be your Mac OS messing things up.
Please try to save the ISO under any other system.

Thanks

Advanced Reporting Options

Perhaps you could use 'run_command=' parameter to setup a process which would track an idle time in a loop. If idle is lower than "some value" then execute following command: echo "$(date) activity detected" >> /var/log/activity.log You could make /var/log folder persistent to keep this log persiste...

Advanced Reporting Options

Hello TXiAccess, Browsers have strong security to protect from 3rd parties trying to steal any info from them. PK Server "Premium" cant be used for this type of 'users activity' monitoring i'm afraid. Only one thing comes to my mind at the moment. Unfortunately it requires some customization: Add lo...

Can't Print

Hello Gabor,

Please query your printer manufacturer about linux drivers availability.
They'll know the best if this printer is supported under linux or not.
