There's no GPU rendering in kweb at all; CSS animation is done by the CPU alone, so don't expect too much.davidb86 wrote:Dear all,
I got the hint to try this config for my request and am in a good mood regarding this.
How does it perform for you when trying HTML5 Canvas Animations?
for example http://www.hongkiat.com/blog/48-excellent-html5-demos/ while using ./ktop ?
should it be smooth because the GPU is rendering it?
I plan to use it while running continousely HTML5 presentations (might also include streaming video and audio, if possible)

(Flash) web video needs youtube-dl to extract the video URL How did you install it? The version from the Raspbian repository is very old and updating it with "youtube-dl -U" doesn't work (it may even destroy it).ali8 wrote:Thanks for the program.
I installed as described, have all the required programs installed and updated, but it does not work.
Specifically, I am using model b+, Rasbian. The browser opens, I go to youtube, on the main page I can see the videos, but when I click on any of them, I go to the video page, and the video is black. I click on the 'play' button in the toolbar, nothing happens. Yes, I have sudo privilege.
I even tried playing the /opt/vc/src/hello_pi/hello_video/test.h264 video directly in the omxplayerGUI, nothing showed up.
No browser has something like that (but could be added by add-ons, perhaps).Pilsener wrote:Why doesn't it have one simple setting for refreshing the home page after X minutes?
I want to use it to show a presentation from Google Slides, but I need to refresh the page every X minutes, in case the slideshow has been updated.
Code: Select all

It depends on your configuration. It's possible to run it from within kweb itself, as a src argument of an iframe in a start page file, that redirects to your real page afterwards. (You have to add it in the settings to avoid a terminal popping up.)Pilsener wrote:NOOB question:
Where do I call this script from?
Cronjob or from within KWEB?
Not the code, but you could save it as a script and add its path to autostart. But why do you want to start the desktop at all for a kiosk application? It will only cost resources while its functionality is never used.Pilsener wrote:Can I insert the code in /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart ?
No problem. If you use the xinit method described in the kweb manual, you always can start the desktop by running "startx" from the command line.Pilsener wrote:It's just that I prefer to work from GUI when setting up things.
You need to start xinit with a kiosk script. You'll find the details in kweb manual page 27 ff.Pilsener wrote:I tried to start kweb from console, but it gives me "Gtk-WARNING: Cannot open display".
If you run it in Kiosk mode? ALT+q. You can also switch back to window mode with ALT+f (full screen toggle).Pilsener wrote:Can anyone tell me how to stop/quit kweb?
I can't even get a new terminal up and running.
It blocks everything.
