Chrome Extension Autolaunch

Remember that you are starting with a clean profile and extensions are installed when Chrome is started, not before.

You would have to use 'persistence=full' and at least once start the Chrome or modify the ISO and include your extension in it by default.

Chrome Browser and Multiple Screens

As far as i know the only way to run the app window on multiple screens in to recompile openbox without xinerama support. This can be done through kiosk customized builds service.

Unable to load config file

Actually - you may try:

Code: Select all

gpu_driver=modesetting
but you'll loose some features (e.g. there may be tearing on Intel GPU when screen is rotated).

Unable to load config file

Its not possible to skip the black screen completely as splash works on a kernel framebuffer while browser needs Xorg session (different drivers).

Is there a way to manually update an ISO?

Hello Fip, Easiest way would be to order a customized build ISO made of latest snapshot from the 'automatic updates' channel + updated initrdpxe.xz component. You could order it whenever you feel your kiosks need to be updated. The best would be to sign up your kiosks to 'automatic updates' service ...

I understand you enter just the URL in the wizard and not parameter+URL? Make sure on final config window: http://porteus-kiosk.org/screens/wizard/config.png you have parameter+URL: kiosk_config=http://myserver.co.za/lab/kiosk.txt By the way - this url is not valid: http://myserver.co.za/lab/kiosk.t...

4.7 "Server is not accessible or remote file is not present on it" mystery problem

Hello ch4lk,

Kiosk on which the debug log was generated uses following remote config:

Code: Select all

http://IP-address/kiosk47h.txt
1) Do you have 'kiosk47h.txt' config file on your server?

2) Mind you must have following parameter in your config:

Code: Select all

kiosk_config=http://IP-address/kiosk47h.txt

Citrix session closes

Could be a regression in the Citrix app.

Would be great if you could boot Ubuntu live CD, install the same Citrix version as you have in kiosk and check if this issue recreate.
Alternatively you could enable free trial of 'automatic updates' service and check if latest Citrix resolves this problem.

problem installing

For future reference:

Please remaster installation ISO:
http://porteus-kiosk.org/kiosk-customization.html

and add following parameter:
pcie_aspm=off

to /boot/isolinux/isolinux.cfg and /boot/isolinux/grub.cfg next to the 'quiet' parameter.

Their should fix the freezes you are experiencing.

Kyocera KX Printer drivers

I cant recreate your issue. Maybe its hardware specific.

Do you get the same problems when you use unmodified kiosk ISO?
If yes then please generate short debug log in the wizard and send it to support@porteus-kiosk.org.

Thanks

Install Porteus KIOSK without Internet

Hi radzio6,

Here is the procedure:

a) generate kiosk ISO in the wizard

b) save it on usb stick instead of burning:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gtCQ3iVmDWw

c) boot any Linux and burn kiosk ISO on target PC using 'dd' utility, sample:

Code: Select all

sudo dd if=Porteus-Kiosk-4.0.0-x86_64.iso of=/dev/sda
