Disabling Power Button Entirely

Hello MotherLizard, This is probably more reliable/elegant way: run_command=killall acpid "Odd to me that this feature isn't standard" Kiosk supports full persistence (as an option) and thats why we need to ensure the PCs are powered down gently to avoid filesystem corruption. Killing the acpid is n...

Google Chrome locked profile

Dimitri, "Will this be addressed in a future release?" Yes "Even better, could hardware specific items like host name, wifi and sound output be set during install and not be overwritten by remote config?" This would be dangerous as wifi password may be changed at some stage. Manual kiosk reinstallat...

Google Chrome locked profile

Hello Bambi, Chrome checks the hostname and creates a lock file. If hostname changes then it "thinks" the profile is used on another PC and prevents browser startup.

Reinstall Issues - Dell Wyse Client

Hello superzer0, 1) Please remaster the ISO and add 'boot_from_usb' flag to kernel options in /boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg.

Mouse wheel in 3D constructor

Could be that standard kiosk has restricted mouse clicks/gestures.

Please boot ThinClient variant and check if it works there. If yes then you'll need to customize the ISO and copy relevant part of the config from /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml file to same file in kiosk ISO.

Porteus Kiosk possible smart home actiontiles?

Hello Dan,

1) if you have two screens (monitors) set in extended mode then you could open two separate browser instances with different homepages in a customized build.

2) I'm not familiar with these. Mind that Porteus Kiosk supports only x86_64 (Intel/AMD) architecture.

Thanks
