How to activate virtual keyboard?

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.

Hello,

How to activate or install a virtual keyboard on Porteus Kiosk?
The extension in the browser is blocked at the policy level, how can this be solved?

Is there a configuration example? I took the policy file from the image, and the folder opt, chrome.json
created parameter: browser_preferences=http://domain.com/files/chrome-policies.txt which points to my policy file, and in the file indicated the following:

"ExtensionInstallWhitelist", : "mclkkofklkfljcocdinagocijmpgbhab",
"ExtensionInstallForcelist" : "mclkkofklkfljcocdinagocijmpgbhab;https://chrome.google.com/webstore/deta ... put-tools/"

But nothing is installed. Tell me, what could be the problem?

Your policies syntax is totally messed up.


Do a 'copy&paste' from the policies example i have provided in the linked thread.
It will work then.

Do you have private mode disabled?

This is enough for the policies file (these policies will be added or replace default kiosk ones):

Code: Select all

"ExtensionInstallWhitelist": [ "pflmllfnnabikmfkkaddkoolinlfninn",],
"ExtensionInstallForcelist": [ "pflmllfnnabikmfkkaddkoolinlfninn;https://clients2.google.com/service/update2/crx",],

Yes, thank you very much, it turns out I did not notice the icon in the browser with the keyboard.
Can I always force the keyboard to display and add language layouts?

You can add language layouts persistence. It is necessary to configure the required layouts in chrome, and then copy the contents of the folder /home/.config/google-chrome/Default/Local Storage/leveldb in 002-chrome.xzm.
Then build a new iso (./make_iso.sh)
