Unsquash 003-settings.xzm leaves me without home directory

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Unsquash 003-settings.xzm leaves me without home directory

Post#1 by tulek » 09 Mar 2018, 11:20

I downloaded the Porteus Kiosk 4.6.0 ISO, and unpacked it.

But if I unsquashfs the 003-settings.xzm file, I have no home directory in squashfsroot and therefore can't customize firefox.
I'm running squashfs on Ubuntu 17.10 if this does matter.

Any help is appreciated.

/home/guest/.mozilla is a hidden folder - perhaps this is what's confusing you?
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.

That I am, aware of, but there is no home folder at all, checked with ls -lah.

As I needed to roll out fast I, tried my luck with the 32-bit legacy edition (3.7) and there the home folder was there as expected.

I am not at my Linux PC right now, I'll come back later and show you guys the differences.
