Locked profile is back

Dimitri,

If the error is not reproducible then i won't be able to fix it I'm afraid.

As a workaround please wipe persistent data with:
persistence=wipe

reboot the kiosk and then go back to:
persistence=full

Thanks

Package list discrepancy

Hello LuxZg, Packages are spread on different modules. ffmpeg (libs only) is part of the Firefox module. freerdp is part of the ThinClient system. Python is in the printing component.

run_command remmina displays "The news are turned off"

I have just tested this scenario and was getting the News window on the old 'remmina.prefs' file (created on older TC version).

Once i generated this file on ThinClient 5.2.0 the message did not appear.

You need to update your preferences file.

Thanks

run_command remmina displays "The news are turned off"

Hello f0084r,

Please generate your Remmina config files on Thin Client 5.2.0 version and update the files which you host on your server (the ones which are downloaded with 'run_command=').

Updated Remmina configs should disable this notification.

Disable ALT + TAB in Porteus Kiosk

Hello musa11971,

Unfortunately this will not be possible as openbox window manager does not recognize 'Atl+Tab' as a valid keyboard shortcut (usually its a special key + letter, in this case we have two special keys).

Issues logging in to Pandora

Please contact Pandora support.

Maybe they started rejecting browser user agents indicating platforms other than Windows.
