integrate LibreOffice to Porteus Kiosk Cloud

LibreOffice tries to load these components and warns you that it does not find them. Warnings are not errors. * For some functions (e.g. the 'macro' function), LibreOffice requires a Java Runtime Environment (JRE). * LibreOffice also searches for accessibility extensions (org.a11y.Bus), e.g. in case...

[porteus-kiosk 4.9.0] System does not boot after 'Burn kiosk ISO on selected device' [Solved]

I'm not sure if this is a good idea. Anyway - good to know. Well, the problem when trying to debug this is that Porteus Kiosk runs almost completely from RAM (except the persistent partition), so there are no shutdown logs to check for a possible reason why the reboot does not work. Or is there an ...

[porteus-kiosk 4.9.0] System does not boot after 'Burn kiosk ISO on selected device'

@fanthom: Sorry, could not find how to edit the post topic to add [Solved] at the start of the subject line - how do I do that?
On the other hand - this solves _only_ the problem of non-rebooting, not the complete Burn kiosk ISO and reboot.

[porteus-kiosk 4.9.0] System does not boot after 'Burn kiosk ISO on selected device'

Today I found a way to reboot the ASLAN-W719 platform (using Kiosk 5.x). It is a little weird, because everything else - reboot, reboot -f, init 6 - did NOT work. This finally did the trick: /etc/rc.d/rc.6 Even weirder: the rc.6 script does a lot of cleanup and uses 'reboot' at the end... Added: Fun...

Change config file on live machines via SSH

If you have SSH access and enough memory on the kiosk systems, you can use the wizard to build a new (properly configured) Porteus Kiosk ISO (works also in a VM), copy the new ISO image via scp onto the target, and then use 'dd' to manually replace the existing installation on the target HDD/SDD. Re...

Installation failed on Odroid H2 64bit x86

Hi Paul,

Can you boot Ubuntu 19.04, or some other Linux distribution?
If these also fail, it could be a hardware problem.

UEFI partition format

From Wikipedia: The EFI system partition needs to be formatted with a file system whose specification is based on the FAT file system and maintained as part of the UEFI specification; therefore, the file system specification is independent from the original FAT specification.[2][3] The globally uniq...

[porteus-kiosk 4.9.0] System does not boot after 'Burn kiosk ISO on selected device'

Hm... I need to check if the platform boots, when writing a new ISO image via SSH from within a running PK instance. :-) Verified: this works: copy a new ISO image with scp into /root (= in RAM) use 'dd' to write it into the boot device (e.g., /dev/sda) Nice! Saves a few steps during development. :...

[porteus-kiosk 4.9.0] Can't update Chrome (pop-up window) [SOLVED]

The solution is to download a fresh porteus-kiosk 4.9.0 ISO file. (The ISO file was replaced with a patched/fixed build around 2019-11-01.)

[porteus-kiosk 4.9.0] System does not boot after 'Burn kiosk ISO on selected device'

Hello fanthom, Interesting detail, thanks for letting me know! (So it's not a 'sync' issue, e.g. when using 'cat' instead of 'dd'.) Sorry, shipping a device is not an option. From our tests I know for sure that Ubuntu 18.x works fine on the DFI-AL051. As I am not at work at the moment, earliest Mond...

With Porteus-Kiosk 4.9.0, the built-in "Burn kiosk ISO on selected device" succeeds, but then the kiosk device does not boot. Affected kiosk systems (x86_64 with touchscreen): ASLAN-W719 device (configured for legacy boot) DFI-AL051 (EFI configuration). This works: "Save kiosk ISO on removable devic...
