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

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. "is this the correct way to donate to the Porteus project?" Technically speaking Porteus Desktop is sepa...

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 ...

swiping to go back gesture not working.

The full flag is:

Code: Select all

--disable-features=TabHoverCards,OverscrollHistoryNavigation
By removing this part (with run_command= parameter):

Code: Select all

,OverscrollHistoryNavigation
you should achieve what you want.

Next time please actually follow my advice instead of assuming it does not work.

Thanks
