Kiosk 4.8 Save ISO not saving to USB Drive

Hello woodrow,

"I just re-tested with the older 4.7 ISO that I had as well, and no luck with saving the ISO to the USB in the setup wizard, when I know it used to work."
This function works for sure. It must be your Mac OS messing things up.
Please try to save the ISO under any other system.

Thanks

Advanced Reporting Options

Perhaps you could use 'run_command=' parameter to setup a process which would track an idle time in a loop. If idle is lower than "some value" then execute following command: echo "$(date) activity detected" >> /var/log/activity.log You could make /var/log folder persistent to keep this log persiste...

Advanced Reporting Options

Hello TXiAccess, Browsers have strong security to protect from 3rd parties trying to steal any info from them. PK Server "Premium" cant be used for this type of 'users activity' monitoring i'm afraid. Only one thing comes to my mind at the moment. Unfortunately it requires some customization: Add lo...

Can't Print

Hello Gabor,

Please query your printer manufacturer about linux drivers availability.
They'll know the best if this printer is supported under linux or not.

Thanks

Video screensaver, usb, redirect to home

You could remaster the ISO and upgrade the firefox in 002-firefox.xzm module. Mind that many functions will break (e.g. fullscreen mode) so please do not post bug reports related to your build. Its better that you wait till new kiosk is released (planned for October) or buy customized build with upg...

Video screensaver, usb, redirect to home

Hi alexandr, 1) We have found that Chrome restart breaks idle time on some website (its javascript related). The workaround is to set screensaver idle longer than session idle, sample: session_idle=5 screensaver_idle=10 2) You would need a customized build for automounting of the usb device. Alterna...

Chrome ctrl-P printing

No idea why "could printing" does not work (maybe you need to login to google account first?).

You can update /etc/cups/client.conf using 'run_command=' parameter and 'sed' utility.
There are plenty of 'sed' examples on Google, please test it over SSH first.

Thanks

Chrome ctrl-P printing

Martyn,

CUPS is not started in your setup (because printer is not configured) and probably thats why Cloud printers are not listed.

Please manually start CUPS daemon using:

Code: Select all

run_command=cupsd
or configure one printer and check if that helps.

Thanks
