add shedule shutdown to porteus kiosk 3.1

Here you can post about the issues related to modifications performed manually (not through the kiosk wizard). Example: swapped kernel, added 3rd party modules or files.
Please describe in detail what has been changed and hopefully other kiosk user will be able to help.
Porteus team wont resolve bugs posted in this category as we support only modifications made by the kiosk wizard.

Post#1 by aariyanto » 11 Jun 2014, 03:54

i love porteus kiosk, it simple and secure, but i dont know how to schedule shutdown for my public kiosk with porteus kiosk 3.1
if i use installation wizard and enable shutdown button, then normal user can shutdown public kiosk, i dont want public / normal user can shutdown the kiosk, i just want every 5PM public kiosk is shutdown

for start up, I can use bios to help power up the kiosk

Thank You

hi Adi,

you can manually customize kiosk and add a cron package to it or use the scripts i posted here: ... 199#p15055
i have checked them and they work ok.

maybe one day i'll add a cron support to the wizard - the only problem is to write a frontend to it :crazy:

another idea:
setup crontab job on your admin PC to login through ssh to all kiosks and run 'init 0'. that should work even better :)
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
