I was able to create a new ISO following your advice, with a modified 003-settings.xzm
i'm glad to hear that. i'm always worrying that 'non porteus' users will have troubles with squashings/unsquashing, keeping correct paths inside hte modules, etc..
sizemode="fullscreen" didn't change anything, It still shows URL, icons and tabs bars.
yes - found it myself today.
this trick works just perfect on normal firefox so i assume that it's one of the ff addons included in Kiosk by default which is preventing going into full screen (F11 key does not work as well).
i'll query brokenman about this (he was the guy who secured firefox in Kiosk) and hopefully post an answer by Monday.
please stay tuned.
btw: me thinking that we could include an option for disabling screensaver directly into wizard. maybe few other features like changing default wallpaper.
some companies may not like our logo and want to put their own. will see
if you have other suggestions regarding Kiosk ISO or wizard then please post. every feedback (positive/negative) is welcome.
BTW, I noticed that I very often end up with a non-booting USB key after dd if=file.iso of=/dev/sdX multiple times.
Sometimes I get an USB key that is unbootable, sometimes I get a USB key that will boot. not sure why : same ISO file.
is it the same usb key or different ones?
if the same key than must be a bug in isohybrid application used by the wizard. i'll try to update it to latest version for Kiosk final.
btw2: if you are making customization to the ISO yourself then you must create hybrid ISO (only if you want to burn it on usb) by issuing following command: 'isohybrid porteus.iso'
isohybrid application is a part of 'syslinux' package so please install it first on the linux distro you are using.
in fact one of firefox addons is blocking F11 key but it's not a main problem. I have found a reason why firefox does not want to go to fullscreen mode - it's the way we start firefox.
please unsquash 003-settings.xzm, edit squashfs-root/etc/xdg/openbox/autostart and change:
Code: Select all
su guest -c "firefox --height 99999 --width 99999"
create new 003-settings.xzm module and ISO.
all should be ok now
btw: new wizard (with httpfs support for the home page) will be released once brokenman implement two new features in it:
- disabling screensaver
- choosing custom wallpaper
should be done over the weekend.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
