[Solved] For newbees extra info in the wizard on DPMS

Post#1 by tacovdveen » 23 Mar 2014, 07:44

First of all KIOSK and the wizard are the best.
I am quite new to Linux, tried many, but Porteus is the easiest
and a good start (for me hopefully ending) in Linux. It feels as
solid as my XP I have been using for 15years. Never a problem.

The wizard is perfect. Only 'DPMS default on' had me search for
quite a while, why my screen went black after 10min watching FILM
Of course I found it, but this had me download 4 times a KIOSK.iso
before I got it (I am a slow learner).

For me DPMS was unknown. All the other descriptions in wizard were
very clear, a little more info in DPMS popup would have been good.
and saved some bandwidth(4 .iso's) (for example, "this settings blacks
the screen after 10min" or something like that).

regards Taco

Hi Taco,

will ask Hamza for changing the desc to:

Code: Select all

Enable DPMS feature which turns off the monitor after 10 minutes of keyboard/mouse inactivity.
hopefully this will be more straight forward now.

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