Default Browser and Automatically send usage statistics page

Post#1 by dirkjk » 04 Sep 2020, 02:00

After setting up some parameters to allow for chrome extensions I get a page at startup that has checkbox's for Make Google the default browser and another for Automatically send usage statistics and crash reports to Google. It was not doing this before I added the following lines:

browser=chrome
browser_preferences=https://www.chromium.org/administrators/policy-list-3
browser_preferences="DeveloperToolsDisabled": false,
browser_preferences="DefaultGeolocationSetting": 2,
browser_preferences="ExtensionInstallWhitelist": true,
browser_preferences="ExtensionInstallForcelist": true,

I found these lines in a tutorial online. It does work, in that it allows chrome extentions now but I would rather not have this page pop up.
Is there a syntax problem?
Is there a run command I can add that will automatically click on the OK button on the page that pops up?

Any suggestions on how to get rid of this page on every session startup would be appreciated.

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:

Code: Select all

browser_preferences="ExtensionInstallWhitelist": true,
browser_preferences="ExtensionInstallForcelist": true,
Syntax looks wrong too me. Please refer to documentation from Google:
https://cloud.google.com/docs/chrome-en ... /policies/

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


Thanks
