Re: status of kde/plasma kiosk framework in kf5

Mag. Weissel Thomas
hello everybody!

i just found this on opensuse.org  -->

https://software.opensuse.org/package/kiosktool

i used "alien" to create a .deb package and installed it without
problems on kubuntu 1604
see screenshots :-)

http://test.xapient.net/STUFF/kiosk2.png

it was last revisited by hrvoje.senjan at gmail.com in 2013 and somehow
ported to kde4

unfortunately the only languages i speak are scriptlanguages like php,
js or python so i can't make much out of the c source code an definitely
not fix anything myself but..

as far as i see there is not that much to do to make it work with
plasma5 .. from a user point of view i've found 3 minor problems so far:

1.) we need to rework the files in ./data/ that contain the action
restrictions and other restrictions (for example actions.kiosk or
general.kiosk) to reflect the current state of the kiosk framework
some of the things there seem to be outdated and others just got fixed
or changed in the last 3 weeks ;-) (or added)

2.) make sure that the configuration file  "/etc/kde4rc" is renamed to
"/etc/kde5rc"

3.) get rid of the weird looking double headlines both in the same
font-style ;-)


greetings,
thomas

ps: there was one group missing out of this.. therefore i added this
