Usability of saving to external devices.

Hi Liz, First of all you need to modify '/sbin/udev-automount-disabled' script and change: # Default mounting flags: MOPT="ro" to: # Default mounting flags: MOPT="rw" 1) For 'keyboard shortcut' unmounting method you would have to modify /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml file and add keyboard binding there. 2)...

Usability of saving to external devices.

There is no possibility to do this in standard kiosk in an user-friendly way (only keyboard shortcut can do this and its not very convenient).

Extend monitor Thinclient

"(in next release i may add support for 'normal' attribute for them if you want to use max available value)."
