Add Modules To Kiosk

Post#1 by thecomputermaster » 06 Apr 2018, 09:24

Hi,
I have been busy compiling modules using porteus linux and USM. However I have been having a hard time, getting them to work in porteus kiosk. Could someone please point me in the right direction? What do i have to add to the .desktop file?
Here is an example of what i have got working:

[Desktop Entry]
Exec=/opt/kingsoft/wps-office/office6/wpp
Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps/wpp.png
Type=Application
Categories=Office;
Name=Presentation
MimeType=text/html;

And here is an example of an application which doesn't work:
[Desktop Entry]
Exec=/usr/bin/nautilus
Icon=/usr/share/icons/hicolor/32x32/apps/nautilus.png
Type=Application
Categories=Files;
Name=Files
MimeType=text/html;

What am i doing wrong? And how would i get a package that works on porteus linux to work on porteus kiosk?
thanks in advance,
thecomputermaster
