Running 2 Printers on same kiosk?

Hi ac-trovei,

We would need to double all printer related parameters (printer model, connection, name, etc) and dont want to make things too much complicated to the users.
Multiple printers can be supported only in a customized build.

Thanks

ZSTD compression instead of XZ for the modules

Interesting read: https://www.phoronix.com/scan.php?page=news_item&px=Fedora-31-Zstd-RPM-Change Seems the XZM modules would be only few percent larger but 5 times faster to decompress: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1648490#c6 'zstd' support for squash filesystem is in the kernel alread...

Chrome ctrl-P printing

Martyn,

I dont think it would be possible unless you could utilize 'Google cloud print' feature (i'm not familiar with it to be honest).

Enabling multiple about:flags for Chrome

You need to add 'run_command=' parameter to your kiosk config.

It can be either on this window or in your remote config (if you use it).

Enabling multiple about:flags for Chrome

Even if you allow 'chrome://flags' then changes you make wont be persistent (unless you enable full persistence but then kiosk users will probably mess with the flags which is probably not what you want) so its better to manually add the flags you want through kiosk config. Find the flags you need a...

Enabling multiple about:flags for Chrome

Please check if it works under Ubuntu.

You may also need to whitelist GPU to get WebGL working (google how to do this).

RUN Command WGET-file

Hello SVblue,

/tmp is cleared during every session start to get rid of all custom files saved there.
You need to save your file in some other location, e.g. /var/lib/storage or /opt/storage (folder must be created and must be accessible by the 'guest' user).

Thanks

Printing has stopped - don't know what to do from here

This printer model is supported by the 'gutenprint' package which has not been updated in about a year: https://porteus-kiosk.org/changelog-automatic-updates.html#180521 I really dont think the updates could cause your issues. Please boot kiosk 4.8.0 ISO with updates disabled and confirm the printin...

Boot / startup time

Hello kpv, Please boot stock ISO (no user made customizations) and check if kiosk start time is still slow. 1) If yes then please enable debug mode ('debug=yes' parameter) and after boot please send generated report to support@porteus-kiosk.org 2) If not then your custom changes must be causing this...

Enabling multiple about:flags for Chrome

This is not correct - you need to follow the FAQ closely.

Hint: do not need to check for a presence of all flags (using grep), if one flag is present then all other flags are also there.

Enabling multiple about:flags for Chrome

You need to separate your flags with a space. Updated the FAQ for this case.

Firefox video autoplay

"So if I understand this right, Porteus uses an older version of Linux?"
As ED_P pointed, yes - we have older Firefox in kiosk. Its explained here:

Turn off HT / SMT threading

Hi nanZor,

I think 'nosmp' cheatcode should be enough to disable hyperthreading.

Thanks
