Change screen brightness by hour

With this configuration:

Code: Select all

* * * * * root
You have instructed the cron to run the command as root.

Code: Select all

whoami >> /opt/script.log

Attrib different hostname to each thin client ?

You can use nested configurations:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/remote-management.html#nested

and setup different hostname for each client.

If you want this to be automatic (generated from MAC) then custom build will be necessary.


Please post in kiosk section of the forum only.

"Can it be loaded and included to Porteus Kiosk thru run_command and wget?"
I believe you could download and replace whole /etc/crontab file with 'run_command='.

Let us know if this method works so i'll update the FAQ.

Porteus Kiosk Server web interface

No plans for web interface.
