pxe-boot not found

Liquidpaper,

Try 'pxe-server' command or add 'pxe' flag to the bootloader config.

This is what works in Porteus 4.0 (did not test 5rc yet).

Thanks

Firefox bookmarks

Alexey,

For managed bookmarks you need to use a proper URL address:

Code: Select all

managed_bookmarks=https://www.consultant.ru/
As explained here:
https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.ht ... _bookmarks

"Parameter value must have an URL format."

Thanks

Custom Image doesn't boot in VM

Hello Milk,

This is kiosk edition - right?

I'm confused what you did (why did you run mkisofs manually?)

Please follow this guide carefully:

And save the ISO on a FAT formatted USB device.

I can guarantee it will be bootable.

Thanks

Disabling chrome long-press actions

I dont think its possbible to do this with Chrome.

Better use Firefox as it has the context menus disabled by default.

Multiple WiFi Profiles

Hello johnch,

This feature is not supported in default kiosk ISO.

Custom build has an option for adding a 'wifi manager':
https://porteus-kiosk.org/builds.html

However - switching is not done automatically and requires an user action (selecting new Access Point).

Modify Kiosk IP

Hello ixobic,

You could add your custom script to:
customXZM/etc/rc.d/local_gui.d/network.sh

Remember to 'killall dhcpcd' and then add your own network related commands there.

Manny, Some of kiosk parameters: https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.html overlap in functionality with Chrome policies. Blacklist and whitelist are among them. If you prefer to use policies then please use this parameter: https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.html#whitelist login to kiosk over SSH ...
