Altispeed Kiosk Deploy Instructions
Last Updated 11 months ago
Altispeed Kiosk Deploy InstructionsThese are instructions to deploy the Altispeed Kiosk. There are two ways you can do this - with the custom ISO, or a Xubuntu 18.04.2 ISO. This documentation will outline both, since an existing Xubuntu 18.04 system can be retrofitted to use this, but the recommended process is with the custom ISO.
Deploying with an existing systemFirst, grab a Xubuntu 18.04.2 ISO. Go through the installation process, but you must set the following two values exactly:
- The name of the user must be
Altispeed Kiosk User
- The username of the user must be
Next, reboot into the installed system and log in as the kiosk user. Run the following command, which will bootstrap the system:
sudo add-apt-repository -y ppa:altispeed/kiosk && sudo apt -y full-upgrade && sudo apt -y install altispeed-kiosk-desktop
Once this command is complete, reboot the system.
Deploying with the custom ISOThis is designed to provide a few less steps. All you do is boot the ISO, double-click the desktop entry, select English, and when the installation process is complete it will let you know. On reboot, everything is set up for you.
Administering the machinesBy default, all of the kiosk machines boot into the kiosk user session. If you log out of that session, select
altispeedfrom the dropdown, and enter the password of
kioskpassword12345, you will be put into an administrator session with root access where you can change settings.
