(usb) answer file?

Tip for even more lazy admins: a) remaster installation ISO b) create config.xzm module containing /media/kiosk-config.txt c) load your config using 'Load config' option in the wizard (takes two mouse clicks) This way you do not have to type anything or insert any 3rd party usb device during install...

Chrome Extension Autolaunch

I thought you need to run just the Chrome app and not Chrome + app. For second case use this: run_command=( sleep 20; su - guest -c "chrome --app-id=jfmhmcdjmeoihgkcnjgjopofgeadjhnf"; ) & If you want to run your app in a loop then: run_command=( sleep 20; while true; do su - guest -c "chrome --app-i...

Start Remmina using run_command

There is a problem with saving RDP password in remmina. It requires 'gnome-keyring' service which makes the whole thing pointless as you still need to enter a password to open the wallet. I would suggest you using custom build with 'rdesktop' or 'xfreerdp' apps which allows to provide a password thr...

Chrome Extension Autolaunch

Remember that you are starting with a clean profile and extensions are installed when Chrome is started, not before.

You would have to use 'persistence=full' and at least once start the Chrome or modify the ISO and include your extension in it by default.

Chrome Browser and Multiple Screens

As far as i know the only way to run the app window on multiple screens in to recompile openbox without xinerama support. This can be done through kiosk customized builds service. "Additionally, I would be keen to know if anyone has tried 4, 6, 8 screens with Porteus?" Should be no problems as long ...

Not sure if this is what you want but I have installed this Chrome app: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/mocha-tn5250/jfmhmcdjmeoihgkcnjgjopofgeadjhnf And i'm able to run it during kiosk boot with following parameter (in a loop so it reopens when closed): run_command=while true; do su - gue...

Unable to load config file

Actually - you may try:

Code: Select all

gpu_driver=modesetting
but you'll loose some features (e.g. there may be tearing on Intel GPU when screen is rotated).

Unable to load config file

Its not possible to skip the black screen completely as splash works on a kernel framebuffer while browser needs Xorg session (different drivers).

Is there a way to manually update an ISO?

Hello Fip, Easiest way would be to order a customized build ISO made of latest snapshot from the 'automatic updates' channel + updated initrdpxe.xz component. You could order it whenever you feel your kiosks need to be updated. The best would be to sign up your kiosks to 'automatic updates' service ...

Unable to load config file

I understand you enter just the URL in the wizard and not parameter+URL? Make sure on final config window: http://porteus-kiosk.org/screens/wizard/config.png you have parameter+URL: kiosk_config=http://myserver.co.za/lab/kiosk.txt By the way - this url is not valid: http://myserver.co.za/lab/kiosk.t...
