Configure CentOS kiosk mode and restrict to single application
location: linuxexchange.com - date: October 13, 2015
We have created a xguest login on CentOS. We need only browser to be used in xguest login and not any other application. How to get this one done?
We tried the following command
~]# setsebool -P allow_xguest_exec_content off
the home screen appears blank for the above command. We want only the browser to be accessed by the xguest user. How to activate the browser for xguest?

chromium browser not always in kiosk mode
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: June 8, 2011
I have set my chromium browser to come up in kiosk mode using the command
This works, but sometimes, when it reboots (I have set chromium to come up in kiosk mode in startup applications), it still has the operating system toolbars visible when the browser should be full screen.
Anyone have any ideas why?
How to achieve a blank "kiosk mode" desktop for customers?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 28, 2012
I want to provide to the visitors of a museum a Touchscreen-PC, on which just a single software is running forever (in a fullscreen borderless topmost window), thus, only left-clicks and left-double-clicks can be created by the user. Therefore, I want to use some Linux, preferably some Ubuntu-derivate. Even though the desktop is usually hidden (as long as the software does not crash), I want it to be absolutely free of any panels - just a black screen. Most important: I do not want to display any notifications and other stuff ever (e.g. on updates, summertime, screen lock, etc.). However, pressing Ctrl+Alt+T should still open a new terminal (for maintaining when plugging in a keyboard).
Is there some simple flag or some package "kiosk mode", which enables this behaviour?
Or do I have to remove all the panels and notifications on my own? If yes, do you know a complete list of things (panels, notification-manager, ...) that I have to disable or remove?
xfce4 kiosk mode locked panels
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: March 23, 2012
Im setting up a computer lab in a school. I have got a main server/firewall/nfs shares setup for a group of "fat clients". These load the root system from the server (dhcp-pxe-tftp-nfs). I also have LDAP set up for client authentication.
I have chosen an ubuntu-xfce4 desktop setup for the client machines. I did a minimal ubuntu oneiric install (cli) and then added xfce4 over that. Overall I have found it to be a good balance in between usability and lighweight. I was also atracted by the kiosk mode setting which simplifies greatly the managing of a number of users and keeping things tidy and controled.
Unfortunately, I'm having great dificulty setting the kiosk mode - panel lock for xfce4.
The documentation for xfce4 explains two ways of doing this. They are similar but not quite the same. You can either create a kioskrc file in /etc/xdg/xfce4/kiosk/ , or set a "locked" atribute in the xfce4-panel.xml file in /etc/xdg/xfce4/xfconf/xml-per-channel/xfc
LXDE Kiosk Mode?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 31, 2010
I want to provide the LXDE for some people but would like to hide some right-click items in LXPanel and the PCMan file manager. This would be to prevent them from making changes and also to simplify the right-click menu.
In PCMan, I will have to do the same for the menus (File etc.) at the top (maybe just hide them?).
If it is easier to disable right-click in general, then that may be acceptable.
