hide virtual keyboard after <RETURN>

Brutus,

Please check if "onboard" keyboard (system app and not a browser extension) works the way you want under Ubuntu. I believe it should.

If yes then onboard VK could be added to kiosk through the customized build.

Thanks

task bar missing [kiosk server]

Brutus, Task bar is present only in server "Premium". Are you using this version? If yes then please ensure that you assign at least 64 MB of memory to the GPU card. That should give you a higher screen resolutions on virtual machines like VMware or VirtualBox. Task bar should be visible then. Thanks

Mouse disappears after upgrade to 5.4

Hello bradgillap, Nobody else reported such problem so it must be related to your config. Please start with minimal number of parameters (disable remote management and all parameters except for network) and check if you can recreate the problem. This wold be a good start: connection=wired dhcp=yes b...

access barcode reader & nfc?

Michael,

Please test the hardware under Ubuntu.

1) If it does not work then query manufacturer about Ubuntu (they for sure wont know how to get it to to work under our system thats why we must rely on Ubuntu).

2) If Ubuntu works then I could try to get it working under kiosk.

Thanks

Time/clock sync schedule

Hello CLSpl,

As per our documentation:
https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.html#run_command

You could modify this parameter value:

Code: Select all

run_command=( while true; do sleep 1h; wget http://domain.com/files/video.mp4 -O /opt/storage/video.mp4; killall firefox; done; ) &

Chrome - Full Screen setup - need to launch page with extension once

Hello msreyes, You have 2 ways of achieving this: 1) enabling full persistence in the kiosk (mind it has some disadvantages) so your extension settings will be remembered: https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.html#persistence 2) buying customized build with your extension and extension settings hard...

Disable new tab in Chrome allow to open the new site

Chrisitan,

Is this issue related to Porteus Kiosk?
If yes then please test Firefox as its forced to open new links in the same tab when the navigation bar is disabled.

Optimize touch capability?

Maybe you could change some properties using 'xinput' utility.
Please search Google as this is general Linux knowledge (nothing related specifically to the kiosk system).

Can't use anything past 5.2

2) I would need to connect to a Windows PC with Anydesk first and then SSH to kiosk.
Both PCs must be in the same network.

Can't use anything past 5.2

Dimitri, 1) Did you refresh the client list in the Admin Panel? 2) Do you have a PC in your office which we could use for recreating this problem? I would need a direct SSH connection to the kiosk in order to find out why its not connecting to the server. If this is possible then please send me Anyd...

Can't use anything past 5.2

Dimitri, 1) Do you still have internet connection on the kiosk after reconfiguration? (after the config is downloaded from PK Server) 2) Please check if your kiosk client can access the server. Please enter this URL in the browser: https://smartcomm.ddns.net and check if you get the SSL certificate ...

Can't use anything past 5.2

Dimitri,

Network related parameters are missing in your config.
Is this wired + dhcp setup?

Thanks
