Polish localized Firefox displays a 24 hour format on this page. This could be done through the customized builds ser...

server: battery level

Dont want to introduce another column but maybe we could use '+' character as an indicator for charging and '-' for discharging?

Kiosk boots fast so you may consider using 'halt_idle=' function for maximum power savings.

mapping hardware buttons?

Must be a driver problem.

Does MX Linux give you an opportunity to upgrade the kernel from their repos?
If yes then please test latest kernel version.

If it wont help then we cannot do anything about it I'm afraid (hardware change is needed).

Please run this command to restart the Xorg session:

Try to set the backlight manually over SSH:

Code: Select all

for x in `ls -1 /sys/class/backlight`; do echo $((`cat /sys/class/backlight/$x/max_brightness`*100/100)) > /sys/class/backlight/$x/brightness; done

Wifi connection to Ubiquity - only 1 AP allowed?

Richard,

If SSID and password are the same then kiosk should automatically connect to first AP found.

mapping hardware buttons?

Michael,

Must be a hardware -> drivers related problem.

Please recreate the issue then post the output of following command (run it over SSH):

Code: Select all

dmesg | tail -n 20

Also - please check if 'suspend_idle=' works better (if gives a biggest power savings).

Thanks

battery api

Michael,

Upower is not available by default:
https://porteus-kiosk.org/packages.html

it could be added through a customized build.

Please check under Ubuntu if it really works. Some other components may be also missing in our system.

Michael,

Please check if it works under Ubuntu.
If not then query Chrome devs why it does not work (under Ubuntu).

Thanks
