Update: Webconverger is the best Linux Web kiosk out there.
If I could setup a “bounty” I would set it on:
I can’t even find the bug for this. SALT or the current default way it stores profile really really sucks.
If this authentication infomation etc. was stored in PAM or LDAP then I wouldn’t have to bother with XDM. A remote profile service would be even better.
A mass market “Kiosk Linux” could then have a chance work. An end user distribution where the desktop is just a browser. No Gnome, No KDE, No bullshit. Just a browser. That’s the desktop.
Web applications could be made to assist people in say, burning CDs. Playing music from Firefox would be trickier.
