After installing SRSS we tried to setup a gnome kiosk session. There were no prototypes for this installed. After scouring the net we only found an example of something that didn't work :-(. Here is our config.

/etc/opt/SUNWkio/sessions/gnome.conf

KIOSK_SESSION_EXEC=/etc/opt/SUNWkio/sessions/gnome/gnome-kiosk
KIOSK_SESSION_LABEL="GNOME"
KIOSK_SESSION_ICON=
KIOSK_SESSION_DESCRIPTION="GNOME"
KIOSK_SESSION_APPLAUNCHER=/opt/SUNWkio/lib/kioskapplaunch
KIOSK_SESSION_PROTOTYPE=gnome
KIOSK_SESSION_ARGS=/usr/bin/gnome-session

/etc/opt/SUNWkio/sessions/gnome/gnome-kiosk

#!/bin/sh
 
$*
*make sure gnome-kiosk is executable. It's a very silly script, but it seems that this is required, when we set KIOSK_SESSION_EXEC to gnome-session it didn't work.

The only other thing we did was make a directory called gnome in prototypes (/etc/opt/SUNWkio/prototypes/gnome)

After making these scripts the kiosk steps in the sunray manual worked.

utpolicy -a -z both -k pseudo

Our SunRays now login to a gnome session if there is no card in the sunray. We locked down the session using sabayon. Hope that helps.

Hello, AM having trouble getting gnome kiosk, do u think you can write a more elaborate way of getting kiosk working on Gnome?

thanks
