Compiling Wi-Fi driver

Hello tobelight, 1) Realtek chipset device has no driver available or at least its not present in the 4.9.x kernel. It may require compilation of the 3rd party driver - if it exist. I would give up on it for now. 2) Atheros device has a driver attached so it should be easier to get it working. It ma...

Chrome Address Bar

<r>"What version of firefox would 4.9 be using?"<br/> 68.x<br/> <br/> "does it update to the latest version whenever it downloads firefox.xzm?"<br/> That would be the fastest way to break the kiosk (Mozilla changes things in their browser and we must update the kiosk functions accordingly).<br/> <br...

Chrome Address Bar

Perhaps you are using some older kiosk version?

Please test Firefox on kiosk 4.9.0 release.

Chrome Address Bar

Hello rh102801, Disabling the address bar is not possible with Chrome as Google did not implement this feature in their browser. Google translate works well with Firefox if you open the main site: https://translate.google.com/ In a customized build i could add a translator addon to the Firefox navig...

Shift + F2 to minimise session in Citrix

I believe this could be accomplished by editing /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml file in 003-settings.xzm module.

Disconnect from Proxy after setup

jonoww,

You can manually change kiosk configuration just before installing the ISO:

Its enough that you remove relevant proxy parameters from your config.

Progressive Web App offline kiosk

Thats because you have this parameter enabled:

Code: Select all

homepage_append=mac
MAC of default NIC cant be determined (because default NIC is not set) and kiosk waits forever.

Not sure why you use this parameter in an offline kiosk?

Progressive Web App offline kiosk

Chrome should start then.

Did you customize the ISO manually? If yes then maybe your modifications broke something ...

Please repeat this scenario with stock kiosk ISO.

Progressive Web App offline kiosk

Hello achenieux,

Kiosk waits up to 2 minutes for the gateway.
Please setup static IP to avoid the delay.

Can the "scim-chewing input method" install to Porteus Koist ?

Hello samba, There is no easy way for implementing this application with kiosk i'm afraid. Maybe you could use Chrome with 'input tools' extension installed: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/google-input-tools/mclkkofklkfljcocdinagocijmpgbhab?hl=en See here: [Solved] Adding extensions to C...

Server is not accessible or remote config is not present

tlab11, Re you referring to a 'double mouse click' and 'middle mouse click methods'? Middle mouse click could be eliminated but I'm not sure how to disable double click. If you have private mode enabled (default in kiosk) then opening new tab shows an empty page so it should be harmless. Maybe you c...

Server is not accessible or remote config is not present

Did you reinstall the kiosk against fixed remote config? You need to have this parameter: kiosk_config=server://filename.txt present on the final kiosk configuration window: https://porteus-kiosk.org/screens/wizard/config.png along with other required parameters: https://porteus-kiosk.org/server.htm...
