Re: [vox] Dual Head Kiosk (of sorts)

Note: This is probably a better question for vox-tech (versus vox).

Are the general public going to interact with it?  If not, then you've
kept from opening a can of worms. :)

In the past, I've used KDE's kiosk mode (this was in KDE 3 -- don't know
what's possible in the new KDE 4).  Others have used Firefox (see the
kiosks at the Davis Food Co-Op), which might be a better way to go, if
all you're providing is a browser.
