Porteus-Kiosk 5.4.0 vncpasswd

Post#1 by Dreyfus1 » 04 Jul 2022, 07:12

I don´t want to set the VNC password in plain text with the parameter https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.html#vnc_password.
Therefore I tried to add my own passwd file (generated with vncpasswd) to my own package but it doesn´t work.
/root/.vnc/passwd seems to be generated at every system start and my own file is overwritten.
Which service generates the password file /root/.vnc/passwd?

You could use 'run_command=' parameter to download and replace VNC password file from your webpage during every kiosk run.

Advantage: you will be able to update it on demand then.

Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
