SRSS Addon: Kiosk Mode Generic Session

From Sun Ray User Group Wiki

Jump to: navigation, search



This SRSS 4.0 Addon creates a generic X server canvas for running Kiosk applications. When the session starts, it takes any string entered in the Kiosk configuration "Arguments" field, and executes it.

This is useful for easily switching the session script, testing various script options, or for pointing at any previously created CAM script.


Generic Kiosk Session pulls files from /etc/opt/SUNWkio/prototypes/generic-session to use as templates in the Kiosk user home directory. If your script/application needs additional files/directories, they may be placed here, and all Kiosk sessions will have access to a copy of them.
