Post#1 by ludmilla » 05 Jun 2015, 11:49

Hi all,
i want to use Porteus Kiosk at our university library computer pool. Is it possible to change the language in Firefox from English to German?
Thank you in advance!

hello ludmilla,

if you are linux familiar then you should be able to do it yourself by remastering the kiosk ISO as per documentation provided:
basically you have to install German language pack on your firefox (under Linux) and then transport relevant files/settings to the kiosk ISO.

this may be challenging so in case of troubles i could do it for you through the commercial 'custom kiosk builds service':

will move this thread to the kiosk section of the forum once you see my response.
Please add [Solved] to your thread title if the solution was found.
