I tried to use Porteus 3.0 in Kiosk Version for our library and its very nice!
But 2-3 things must be customized.

1. Can I change the language of firefox (or is this the systemlanguage?) with the rootcopy-directory to german?
2. How can I add MS Fonts on te easiest way? I'm not so good in linux-configuring

Thanks! :)

please read Kiosk FAQ (on the main page) how to perform manual kiosk ISO customizations.
i have seen a thread about MS fonts somewhere in kiosk section of the forum and lang pack should be installed the same way as normal firefox addon.

good luck!

thanks a lot! with the languapge pack i was successfull.
my version, if anybody want to do the same with languagepack:

- unpack iso-file to i.e. /tmp/iso
- unsquash 003-settings.xzm
- languagepack download from ... R_LANGUAGE
- copy the .xpi to /tmp/ISO/porteus/base/squashfs-root/home/guest/.mozilla/firefox/c3pp43bg.default/extensions
- edit the pref.js (i.e. install the addon at the linux-machine where you customize the Kiosk-ISO and copy the new entries in the pref.js from your KIOSK-ISO).
(in my case it was 1 entry, user_pref("extensions.bootstrappedAddons", ........................)
- create the module again: mksquashfs squashfs-root 003-settings.xzm -b 256K -Xbcj x86 -noappend
- delete squashfs-root
- create the ISO again with
