porteus on raspi-clone "odroid c4" possible?

From the consumer perspective ARM is great.

Thanks

porteus on raspi-clone "odroid c4" possible?

"Seems ARM is not that homogenous than Intel-compatible PCs, eh?" Exactly. If you create an ISO for x86_64 arch then it works on all 64bit Intel/AMD PCs. If you create and ISO for an ARM SBC then it works only on that ARM SBC (well - sometimes its enough to update DTB file to boot on another SBC but...

porteus on raspi-clone "odroid c4" possible?

Hi att, If switching the hardware is an option for you then Rock Pi X works well with Porteus Kiosk: https://hackerboards.com/boards/rock-pi-x/ It should also work with standard Porteus Desktop systems. TBH - ARM recompilation is not worth the time and effort when you have a working Intel solution. ...

Customize Chrome browser

1) Firefox can have native touch gestures support and hidden toolbar on PDFs in the customized build. I'm not sure about the CSS issues you have mentioned, maybe they are resolved in Firefox 91.x ? 2) Chrome can have onscreen buttons integrated but they are sometimes smaller or not visible at all de...

Customize Chrome browser

Hello Meiilax,

I don't think it's possible to customize the blocked page in Chrome.

Perhaps you could use Firefox with our 'onscreen buttons' parameter?

Prevent users from opening PDF popup

Please use Firefox as it forces opening new links in the same tab when the navigation bar is disabled.
You can also add 'onscreen buttons' and go back to the previously viewed page.

ethX port enumeration not stable

I understand that you have one ethernet cable plugged to the kiosk PC.

Please disable unused NICs in the PC BIOS. That would be fastest solution.

Porteus Kiosk wizard - can't setup WiFi

Perhaps the system has no driver for your wifi dongle.

Please use wired connection, generate debug report in the wizard (dongle must be plugged it) and send it to support@porteus-kiosk.org.

Porteus Kiosk Server and Virtualbox

Is this the config which you host on PK Server?
Is it visible as 'config1' in the Admin Panel?

Please provide the config which you see in the wizard during client installation.

Thanks
