Re: Touch Foil lost settings after some minutes

"If I run xinpunt watch-props on Ubuntu I see diffent propreties (all propreties start with libinput instead of evdev). Different driver? " Ubuntu uses libinput while we are still on evdev as we should avoid breaking our API ('touchscreen_calibration=' parameter in this case). As far as i'm concerne...

Re: Touch Foil lost settings after some minutes

Hi Manuele,

Please boot latest Ubuntu live on this hardware and check if you get the same issue.
If not then new kiosk release (scheduled for next week) may resolve this problem.

Thanks

Re: Hotkey to launch battery applet?

Hi wyrickre,

There should be automatic popup notification when battery reaches certain level (I think it's 10%) and keeps discharging.


Thanks

Re: Email from Tomas M -new slax version

"I wonder if brokenman or fanthom have any commentaries out of the record on these peculiar days when the band was hosted on the slax forum." I have mailed Tomas M for a permission to use slax forum for developing slax-remix and he agreed. Some hardcore slax fans did not like the remix and it caused...

Re: Linux Kernel Developers Discuss Dropping x32 Support

x32 ABI is different than i386:
X32 ABI: Details

Pretty much nobody is using x32 and thats why its being dropped from the kernel.

i386 is here to stay (existing old PCs and embedded, IoT cases with limited RAM).

Re: certs8db

Hello tjennings87,

Kiosk's kernel accepts only 'xz' compression for the modules (best size/decompression speed ratio) so please make sure you create xzm properly (mind the mksquashfs arguments):

Re: How can i add CUPS-PDF

If cups-pdf has such functionality (i'm not familiar with it) then its probably the easiest way to use it rather than importing PDF to some web based PDF editor, adding watermark, etc.

If you wont resolve this yourself then i can only suggest using 'kiosk customized builds' service.

Re: How can i add CUPS-PDF

Hello Woody, Chrome has 'Save as PDF' option available by default so maybe you could use it instead of 'cups-pdf'? No need to enable the printing component at all - just unlock the 'Ctrl+P' shortcut and enable printing in Chrome policies: run_command=sed -i 's/C-p //' /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml; openbo...

Re: Tearing on latest NUC

Hello thewiz,

You could generate short debug report in the wizard on 4.7.0 release and send it to support@porteus-kiosk.org.

This way we could ensure all other hardware (especially wifi) would be supported in next kiosk.

Thanks

Tearing on latest NUC

Your options would be: a) compile the kernel yourself: http://www.porteus.org/component/content/article/20-tutorials/development/91-compilation-and-usage-of-custom-porteus-kernel.html b) wait till late January for new kiosk release c) customized build with latest kernel: https://porteus-kiosk.org/bu...
