Adding antivirus?

You should not need an antivirus in kiosk (or linux in general). Check second query here:

USB Drive Passthrough

Hi vrupra, I need to access your kiosk over SSH and VNC in order to check whats needed to get the passthrough to work. Please contact support@porteus-kiosk.org and provide login info. You could also associate your kiosk with my Porteus Kiosk Server if that easier (no changes to the firewall needed)....

Run 2 Commands on startup

You are putting 'run_command=' parameter as 'run_command=' parameter value which is obviously wrong.

You need to use 'run_command=' as parameter and two or more commands as 'parameter value'.

Run without network

Porteus Kiosk does not depend on internet availability (except for installation stage).

Maybe your website needs to download some stuff (e.g. fonts) from the internet? Please test with simple 'Hello world' in the local index.html.

Whitelist questions.

I'm not sure if its possible to allow URLs from specific webpage unless there is addon/extension created for this purpose. Maybe you could: a) use firefox as the browser b) disable address bar c) do not enable whitelist at all? This way users would be able to access only URLs generated on your searc...

does porteus exist without installation with internet?

1) If you write "porteus" you are referring to Porteus Desktop. If you writhe "porteus kiosk" you are referring to kiosk edition. Please be precise and do not confuse the users. 2) Please post kiosk related threads in kiosk section of the forum. 3) offline installation of kiosk is possible in a cust...

How can I Open a console???

If you have ssh enabled then its enough to edit /etc/inittab.
If you dont have ssh enabled then you must edit /etc/inittab and /etc/shadow.

You must set root password either way (ssh or by editing /etc/shadow) - otherwise you wont be able to login.
/etc/inittab unlocks terminal.

Whitelist questions.

Not sure if i understand.

Normally you would add this parameter to your kiosk config:

Code: Select all

whitelist= list of whitelisted domains here 
Unless you dont have those domains stored anywhere and you want to allow anything whats present on a 'X' webpage (your search catalogue tool)?

How can I Open a console???

You did not follow the FAQ carefully:

Code: Select all

Now after booting you can press Ctrl+Alt+F1 and login to the shell as normal (make sure you complete the steps from FAQ#5).

[error] 0.020000 AMD-Vi Command Buffer Timeout

Just realized this is Ryzen APU. You'll have to wait for next kiosk release with new LTS kernel as our current 4.14.x does not support this GPU yet. Unless you would be interested in a paid customized build? http://porteus-kiosk.org/builds.html If this is for a private use then better wait. If VESA ...

Hi jk9,

Add 'amd_iommu=off' kernel parameter to your grub4dos config for kiosk.
Let us know if that helped.

Thanks
