Does someone know a solution for a refresh of the homepage .htm after a period of time, for example every five minutes?

Check the settings in kwebhelper.py (pdf viewer). And install xpdf and set kwebhelper.py to use it. It's much better then mupdf (should be preinstalled). After changing kwebhelper.py you need another "sudo make install". That will change in the next version. There will be a separate settings program and settings can be changed at run time. Another thing you might check is, if there is a "Downloads" folder in your home directory. That's where PDFs are loaded to (and checked later on so they are not downloaded again).d3vi0us wrote:Two Question,
Everything seem to run fine, but no PDF ever load.
Also would like to load these in the actual browser not an external program.
Start kweb from a terminal or write a small script like that:xgrewellx wrote:How do I go about changing what page this opens to. I want it to go to http://localhost instead of the current homepage.html
I have a php script that I want to execute using kweb and just can't for the life of me figure out how to change the default homepage.
You won't! But give me a few more day to finish version 1.1 (working on the manual right now, yes a real manual!). It will take up to 2 arguments, an options string and an URL. That's exactly what you are looking for.xgrewellx wrote: This works great, but how do I get it to launch in kiosk mode this way. I've read the readme 5 times and feel, well, not very smart now haha.
