Is there a quick way to turn Ubuntu Linux on a multimedia kiosk terminal.
A terminal is not only run a browser in full screen, but should contain much more than that.
Used to secure public access to libraries, bookstores, universities, schools, hotels, airports and terminals during events.
Even better if you can use a browser that is constantly updated. Here we highlight the Firefox browser for Ubuntu Linux. Simply install it, an additional plugin and ready! The name of this plugin is mKiosk.
Public Firefox Kiosk Mode with optional Tabs Guides for Access Point. Complete solution. Block downloads/addon, bookmarks, reset kiosk inactivity, retry on errors, restricted interface, show favorites as buttons and more! USERS ONLY ADMINISTRATORS!
