Different printers have different URIs.

Please refer to the printer documentation or query manufacturer support to find it.

How do I login as admin?

Hello usalabs,

There is no such function implemented. Adding software to kiosk requires manual ISO customization.

You can only change kiosk parameters if you enable remote management:

Where's sysctl.conf

"Isn't it then strange that we still can get into a situation with a Kernel Panic message on screen that is NOT causing a reboot after the specified time?" Maybe there is another kernel option which must be enabled. I actually doubt this as it would be enabled automatically, this is how kernel confi...

Where's sysctl.conf

"When in the boot process are such options from the kiosk wizard applied?" Immediately when the kernel image is extracted. "Any other thoughts on how we could avoid Kernel Panic during PXE boot, or how to ensure that a player is indeed always rebooted after such as mishap?" Perhaps the PXE server co...

Where's sysctl.conf

Hello jerrymattias,

I'm not aware of any method which would allow to test kernel panics.

If you find it then please share as it may come useful for debugging.

Thank you.

Hello RMacD, You will need to remaster the kiosk ISO: https://porteus-kiosk.org/kiosk-customization.html and add missing firmware/NVRAM files: [ 26.652918] brcmfmac: brcmf_fw_alloc_request: using brcm/brcmfmac43241b4-sdio for chip BCM4324/5 [ 26.745674] brcmfmac mmc1:0001:1: Direct firmware load for...

Porteus 5.1.0 remote server managment/config bug ?

Hello Idy, Remote management code was not updated between 5.0.0 and 5.1.0 releases. I'm sure its your kiosk configuration fault - perhaps you made a typo when providing the server IP/domain/port? Maybe your firewall/proxy plays a role here? Hard to guess but its definitely something on your side. Pl...

please advise.. new tabs opening, no way to go back..

Hello aaamoeder,

You could use Firefox and our 'onscreen buttons':
https://porteus-kiosk.org/parameters.ht ... en_buttons

Mind that Firefox does not support touch scrolling by default (custom build with libinput is needed to have the touch events working).

[not4n00bs] a secure userland...

OK - clear.

Any chance you could share your derivative in the "Porteus Derivatives" section of the forum?
This way the users (including myself) could try it and see the benefits it brings.

Hello fu11m00nremix, I guess Porteus Desktop (and Kiosk as well) will never switch to the musl library. Desktop oriented linux (as the name implies) is tailored to a casual users. Casual users care about the software availability in the first place. Casual users are not interested in hardened setups...
