Need an easy button for a post-install on screen keyboard

Hello jimjunkdude, "Would this custom build also work with update subscription?" Yes "How much time could one reasonably expect to get from a deployment before having to wipe and reload the kiosk hardware?" I think you meant the "kiosk software"? If updates are enabled then you never update the soft...

Can I force an update without having automatic updates enabled?

You need to remaster the ISO yourself (upgrade what's needed in it) or wait for a public kiosk release.

Thanks

Porteus kiosk server SSH

"Is possible set the SSH/VNC from console"
You cant - you need to reinstall the server (keep persistent partition unformatted to preserve your configs, files, etc).

Porteus Kiosk Server

beginner,

Its possible to add, delete and edit files over SSH.

However - it makes no sense as after kiosk reboot all your changes will be reverted.

porteus kiosk

Hello beginner,

Kiosk is read-only and has no package manager integrated (it would be pointless on a read-only system).

You can upgrade it by re-installation with a new ISO or by signing to kiosk's 'automatic updates' service.

Porteus Kiosk Server

Hello beginner,

Only PK Server "Premium" can have the SSH access enabled.

The password is the one which you set in the installation wizard.

installing chrome extension

Parameter orders does not matter.

However - if you double parameters in the GLOBAL (or PCID) section then only first one will be used by the system.
