Kiosk Edition Locking

Please set full persistence to logs:
persistence=/var/log

and hopefully you'll be able to find the locking reason.

I assume this particular PC is different model than other kiosks which are running ok?

Wifi problems on recent laptops

Hi emailhh, Sorry but i'm not going to pull any proprietary drivers to kiosk. Hardware vendors must start treating linux seriously and create opensource drivers (firmware can stay closed). If Broadcom does not want to increase their sales - thats their problem. The only solution is the customized bu...

Problem Downloading Kiosk

Hello MysteryMan,

Good catch. The ISO was updated to fix a bug (calibration not working for touch controllers containing additional spaces in their names) and i forgot to regenerate MD5 sums.

Fixed now.

Patreon is not only for artist and content providers, i believe its good for all projects/activity which lacks direct funding. Here is sample for open source project:

@Team Sorry for hijacking but did not find a better/recent thread in this subject. Would the Patreon work better for the project than PayPal donations? As far as i understand Patreon offers steady income every month which may be better than one time donations. Myself (as Porteus Kiosk project repres...

Browser Tab switching while using tab

Hello jvercelletto, "Is there a setting to not scroll unless there is not activity for a certain time?" There is no such parameter available at the moment. "I could use the screensaver option but then the ads would not be interactive and I am limited to jpg's or png's. I am trying to make it more in...

[Solved] Black/blank screen via VGA, works via DVI

Great stuff - thank you.

1280x1024 must be maximum resolution on this particular monitor as even native openchrome driver does not discover higher modes.
By using the 'fbdev/vesa' drivers you are missing 2D acceleration only.

[Solved] Black/blank screen via VGA, works via DVI

Seems the T520 model does not need the fbdev tweak as its running maximum mode with the VESA driver. Probably because its the only mode available on this hardware. fbdev is needed for T510 where VESA driver sticks to 1024x768 resolution by default for some reason ... For the record - which modes do ...

Black/blank screen via VGA, works via DVI

Strange - i though 1280x1024 is default for VESA. Please save the script below in a custom module in the /etc/rc.d/local_cli.d folder to force 1280x1024 resolution and the framebuffer driver: #!/bin/sh # 'gpu_driver=vesa" parameter must be used as drm drivers need to be blacklisted. # Set maximum av...

Black/blank screen via VGA, works via DVI

'1280x1024p-85' is max what you can get using framebuffer driver and this is what you should have with VESA driver already. You may confirm by running 'xrandr' command over SSH. No point for switching to the framebuffer. If you need higher resolution then you need to use native driver (openchrome) a...

Black/blank screen via VGA, works via DVI

If you are lucky you may get higher screen resolution using framebuffer driver (still unaccelerated).

Please post the output of following command when kiosk is booted with VESA driver:

Code: Select all

cat /sys/class/graphics/fb0/modes

replacing firefox on kiosk iso

Hello rwl, Bumping Firefox 52.x to 62.x in kiosk 4.7.0 ISO means breaking of many existing functions: - legacy addons wont work - same for NPAPI plugins (java, citrix, etc) except flash - fullscreen mode requires additional tweaks - some other parameters (e.g. import_certificates, managed_bookmarks)...
