Mount USB with write access

How do you want to unmount the stick?

download-open pdf?

Hello pepe123456, Some files are offered by web servers for download only rather than for viewing.

AFTER LOAD CONFIG no Printers Found!

Please contact with support@porteus-kiosk.org and provide SSH access to your kiosk.

partially completed wizard or iso?

Hello DtheGreek,

Wizard is downloaded from kiosk website during every installation so its not possible to tweak it.
Customized build is your only option.
