Bootable USB ISO will not boot on Thinkpad E14

Hello tsbc, "I'm starting to think that it has something to do with the Thinkpad E14 being the new 4000 Series Ryzen 5 chipset, and that I'll need assistance with a paid custom build." I believe that you will need a custom build with newer kernel to get this hardware to work with kiosk. Please conta...

TOTAL NEWBIE Limited Tech with Linux - wanting to remove Porteus

Hello DowntownBike,

Are your sure this PC meets Windows 10 hardware requirements?
I think EFI firmware is required for Windows to work. Do you have it on your PC or only BIOS?

You may better as Microsoft support as i have no clue how to instrall this system (do not use it).


Thanks

Allow All chrome extensions possible

Hello Dirk,

You could use this parameter to remove Chrome's extension blocklist policy from the kiosk:

Code: Select all

run_command=sed -i '/ExtensionInstallBlacklist/d' $json

Upload wallpaper using https site?

Hello bbowlsbey,

Kiosk should download files from https websites without problems, unless there is some weird redirection which 'wget' utility cants handle.

Please provide an URL to your wallpaper and i'll investigate this.

Thank you.

Default Browser and Automatically send usage statistics page

Dirk, 1) You cannot double parameters in the kiosk config as only first one will be processed. 2) You need to point browser preferences parameter to a remote file which contain your policies 3) I'm not sure if this policy is valid: browser_preferences="ExtensionInstallWhitelist": true, browser_prefe...

ZSTD compression

Hello neko,

As far as i remember overlayfs did not allow to insert new branches (modules) to the live filesystem.
Meaning that you could not activate new modules during the Porteus session.

Did anything change in this matter or its still the same?


Thanks

He wants to be able to enter the 'VIP area', manage the forum, etc. I'm not involved in Porteus Desktop anymore so dont want to dec...

Battery Low Warning

Hello chronowerx,

1) Please post in the kiosk section of the forum only.

2) You cant double parameters in the kiosk config. Please use just this one and remove other 'run_command=' parameters:

Code: Select all

run_command=pkill -f battery_polling; dunstify -C 333
Thanks

Right-click not working

Sorry - fixed my previous post.
This is 'run_command=' parameter.

I believe donations still work. Just the webpage is not updated with the donors name.

Right-click not working

Well - if you insist, you could use this parameter: run_command=sed -i 's/, #contentAreaContextMenu//' $profile/chrome/userChrome.css it will unblock right mouse click on the webpages in Firefox.

Right-click not working

Hello 4fMZjFg, This is intended as right mouse click on the webpages is not needed. It actually gives an access to the options (like 'save page as') which would be not welcomed in the kiosk. a) to copy text you mark it first with left mouse click then press Ctrl+c/Ctrl+v on the keyboard. b) to open ...

Porteus Kiosk 4.3.0 SSH access

Hello mrk, Are you using remote config? If yes then please install standard kiosk (without any manual customization performed by you) and check if SSH works ok. a) if SSH works then your customization is to blame (hard to say what gets broken, probably permissions/ownership of files) b) if SSH does ...
