I've run into a snag. Every time I boot into xfce4 when I log in I'm presented with a box to start panel.
I've tried cleaning out sessions and another directory but the problem persists. After I execute another box comes up to
tell me I'm in kiosk mode and to save before I log out. I've searched and it's not clear just how and what
steps I must take.

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

TIA

Hello A.S. Pushkin.

Did you check or have a
Code:
/etc/xdg/xfce4/kiosk/kioskrc
file?

Any more info can be found here, if you did not already find them: https://wiki.xfce.org/howto/kiosk_mode

Thank you most kindly! I had not looked, but I'll proceed
there right now!

Thank you!


Edit:

Checking /etc/xdg/xfce4/kiosk/kioskrc I discovered I am missing /etc/xdg/xfce4/kiosk/

Is there anything else in
Code:
/etc/xdg/xfce4/

there could be a panel directory or something like that.

perhaps this topic here can help you:

xfce4 is more complex than I had thought! I finally zeroed in on "Session and startup" dialogue.
After resetting my desktop with xfce4-panel running clicking on the "Save session" button fixed my problem.


EDIT:

/etc/xdg/xfce4/ contains the following files and directories:

helpers.rc panel xfconf Xft.xrdb xinitrc


Both Panel 1 and 2 come up when I log in, but I still get a warning about kiosk mode.
I'm stumped on how to fix this.

Thank you

After much searching and frustration I finally located a solution.

Delete this file, "xfce4-panel.xml" from the

/home/pushkin/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/ directory

/home/pushkin/.config/xfce4/xfconf/xfce-perchannel-xml/xfce4-panel.xml

Then delete all files from the "sessions" directory

/home/pushkin/.cache/sessions/

Then reboot the system. It took me to square one and no more kiosk mode!

I found this at:

Edit: One other problem I had been having was no matter what I did my Linux box would reboot on shutdown. That was whether
I did a shutdown from XFCE to a shutdown from terminal. This all began with a new motherboard. It turned out that there is a bug
in my Gigabyte mainboard. In the BIOS setup the "wake on lan" was the problem. Disabling this fixed the problem.
