USB flashdisk Porteus Kiosk Drive Letter display in Windows 10 issues.

hamfast,

It may be faster to boot any linux and perform MBR wiping under this system instead of a Windows.

The procedure is described in the kiosk FAQ:

Thanks

Confusing language with Zoom Controls option in Setup Wizard

Hello hamfast, Kiosk has zoom controls enabled by default and thats why this option is enabled in the wizard by default. If you disable this option in the wizard then zoom controls will be also disabled in kiosk. Wizard supposed to hint the users which functions are enabled and which are not enabled...

Black screen on boot - 2007 Samsung signage

Hi TM8TFY,

Please query me on support@porteus-kiosk.org for debugging ISO.
It will boot to text mode and connect to my PK Server so i could test the GPU driver quickly.

USB installation fails

Hello svenson, Do you have another kiosk installation on the hard drive? Some UEFI systems ignore selected booting order and load kernel from first partition which is found (always the hard drive as USB is initialized later). Please wipe first 100 MB of data from the hard drive (can use any linux fo...

Compiling Wi-Fi driver

Hello tobelight, 1) Realtek chipset device has no driver available or at least its not present in the 4.9.x kernel. It may require compilation of the 3rd party driver - if it exist. I would give up on it for now. 2) Atheros device has a driver attached so it should be easier to get it working. It ma...

Chrome Address Bar

<r>"What version of firefox would 4.9 be using?"<br/> 68.x<br/> <br/> "does it update to the latest version whenever it downloads firefox.xzm?"<br/> That would be the fastest way to break the kiosk (Mozilla changes things in their browser and we must update the kiosk functions accordingly).<br/> <br...

Chrome Address Bar

Perhaps you are using some older kiosk version?

Please test Firefox on kiosk 4.9.0 release.

Chrome Address Bar

Hello rh102801, Disabling the address bar is not possible with Chrome as Google did not implement this feature in their browser. Google translate works well with Firefox if you open the main site: https://translate.google.com/ In a customized build i could add a translator addon to the Firefox navig...

Shift + F2 to minimise session in Citrix

I believe this could be accomplished by editing /etc/xdg/openbox/rc.xml file in 003-settings.xzm module.

Disconnect from Proxy after setup

jonoww,

You can manually change kiosk configuration just before installing the ISO:
https://porteus-kiosk.org/screens/wizard/config.png

Its enough that you remove relevant proxy parameters from your config.

Progressive Web App offline kiosk

Thats because you have this parameter enabled:

Code: Select all

homepage_append=mac
MAC of default NIC cant be determined (because default NIC is not set) and kiosk waits forever.

Not sure why you use this parameter in an offline kiosk?

Progressive Web App offline kiosk

Chrome should start then.

Did you customize the ISO manually? If yes then maybe your modifications broke something ...

Please repeat this scenario with stock kiosk ISO.

Thanks
