Hi,

Is there a command to only open Google Chrome on startup without the Dock?

So far I have:

run_command=sed -i '/remmina.desktop/d' /etc/xdg/tint2/tint2rc; sed -i 's/#su - guest/su - guest/' $scripts/gui-app

This removes Remmina and auto launches Google Chrome but would prefer to have only Google Chrome open without the dock. Thanks

Isnt it easier to use standard kiosk ISO + Firefox + Citrix receiver component?

Thanks

Maybe, I just only wanted access to Google Chrome to login to Citrix. I am only using them for Citrix access and wondered if it was possible. thanks

I could try this, I'm not sure If our internal access will work with Citrix extension though.
