Progressive Web App offline kiosk

Hello achenieux,

Kiosk waits up to 2 minutes for the gateway.
Please setup static IP to avoid the delay.

Thanks

Can the "scim-chewing input method" install to Porteus Koist ?

Hello samba, There is no easy way for implementing this application with kiosk i'm afraid. Maybe you could use Chrome with 'input tools' extension installed: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/google-input-tools/mclkkofklkfljcocdinagocijmpgbhab?hl=en See here: [Solved] Adding extensions to C...

Server is not accessible or remote config is not present

tlab11, Re you referring to a 'double mouse click' and 'middle mouse click methods'? Middle mouse click could be eliminated but I'm not sure how to disable double click. If you have private mode enabled (default in kiosk) then opening new tab shows an empty page so it should be harmless. Maybe you c...

Server is not accessible or remote config is not present

Did you reinstall the kiosk against fixed remote config? You need to have this parameter: kiosk_config=server://filename.txt present on the final kiosk configuration window: https://porteus-kiosk.org/screens/wizard/config.png along with other required parameters: https://porteus-kiosk.org/server.htm...

Installation of Porteus Kiosk on windows machine

Rufus unpacks the content of the ISO to the USB stick while it needs to be burned 'byte after byte'.
Thats why we recommend Win32DiskImager in kiosk documentation as it does only that.

Chrome with Adblocking & Adult Content Filtering

tlab11,

You need to include all Chrome policies in a separate file and link to it in the 'browser_preferences=' parameter:

tlab11,

This parameter is not right:

Code: Select all

kiosk_config=kiosk_config=server://filename.txt
I have removed your doubled post on the forum.

jonoww,

Please enable free trial of 'automatic updates' on your kiosk and check if latest Citrix version resolves this problem.

Installation of Porteus Kiosk on windows machine

Hello tlab11,

You have done correct (Windows wont see other partition).
Please boot this USB on the target PC and follow the first run wizard to configure and install your kiosk.

Intel Compute Stick

Hi Catalyph,

1) For audio support you definitely will need a customized build (Intel HDMI chips require Pulseaudio as Alsa do not support them yet):
https://porteus-kiosk.org/builds.html

2) Wifi should work out of the box with recent kernel we have in kiosk 4.9.0.

Disabling Power Button Entirely

Hi Dimitri, This may cause (rare) accident reboots if power button is pressed by mistake. Maybe it would be better to use this parameter: shutdown_menu=reboot If enabled, the user will be presented with a menu containing 'reboot' and 'cancel' buttons only so he could return to his session if button ...
