Chrome - always first start page

Post#1 by kaiser-admin » 11 Mar 2019, 07:39

Hello,

i have the problem that, each time i restart the Kiosk terminal, Chrome browser is pointing me to the "first startup" page where i have to check for default browser and statistic reports.
(both in public and private mode)
Can anyone advise the correct configuration parameter for disabling this option and directly load the homepage?

Ragards,

Thorsten

Hi Thorsten,

Are you are using 'browser_preferences=' parameter?
If yes then your Chrome policies must have an incorrect syntax which breaks the whole thing.

Please hash-out this parameter and check if that helps. If yes then please enable it back and remove your policies one by one from your preferences file until you find the one with incorrect syntax.

Thanks

Did you customize the kiosk ISO in any way?
If yes then you need to resolve this problem yourself.

If not then please send your kiosk config to support@porteus-kiosk.org and i'll have a look on it
