Issues logging in to Pandora

Please contact Pandora support.

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

Issues logging in to Pandora

You can do the testing in the live Ubuntu session (no need to install Ubuntu, just boot the ISO in VM).

Issues logging in to Pandora

Tim,

Please check if logging to this webpage works under Ubuntu.

Please test Firefox ESR version and not the standard:
https://ftp.mozilla.org/pub/firefox/rel ... sr.tar.bz2

Tim,

Please ensure your login and password is correct.
I'm nearly sure this is the reason of the error.

Change screen brightness by hour

Hello ION_Vince,

Please run this command over SSH to change the brightness to 33%:

Code: Select all

for x in `ls -1 /sys/class/backlight`; do echo $((`cat /sys/class/backlight/$x/max_brightness`*33/100)) > /sys/class/backlight/$x/brightness; done
Replace number '33' with any percent in range 0-100.

Thanks

Please reinstall the server and keep persistent partition unformatted.
Will be easier.

Firefox can't establish a connection to the server at pwreset.brunel.ac.uk

Hello Roland,

I believe the problem is that kiosk is not able to resolve the IP address of 'pwreset.brunel.ac.uk' domain.

Please use this parameter as a workaround:

right click dos not work

Emil,

Do you have the navigation bar disabled?
disable_navigation_bar=yes

if yes the right mouse click is forcibly disabled to prevent escaping from the kiosk mode.

Why do you need it in the first place?

Thanks

Make ISO

Markus,

You need to boot the installer 18 times i'm afraid (or simply setup remote management with nested configs).

USB Sound Card

Markus,

USB sound devices should be always indexed as 1.

Please recreate the problem (USB sound device on index 0) then provide an output of following commands:
aplay -l
lsmod

Blank/black screen after booting from USB porteus kiosk

As indicated in my previous email: any linux which works on your device would be good.

No need to install - you can run the script in the live mode.

Certificate import

1) Firefox profile in in 003-settings.xzm module.

2) Make sure the files you add have 1000:1000 ownership and proper permissions so will be readable by the Firefox.

Thats all i can help.
