< KDE System AdministrationRevision as of 10:32, 30 September 2007 by 126.96.36.199 (talk | contribs) (Typo)(diff) ← Older revision | Latest revision (diff) | Newer revision → (diff) This article contains a listing of known keys that can be used with Kiosk and what they do. How to actually use these keys and other capabilities of Kiosk such as URL restrictions, creating assigning profiles, etc. is covered in the Introduction to Kiosk article. Which configuration file to put these entries in depends on whether you wish to make them global to all applications or specific to one application. To make the restrictions valid for all applications, put them in kdeglobals. To enable a restriction for a specific applications place them in the application-specific configuration, e.g. konquerorrc for Konqueror.

File Manager Key Action action/editfiletype Edit associated applications action/properties File properties action/openwith Open file with action action/openintab Open link in a new tab action/kdesktop_rmb RMB menu, see note below action/iconview_preview Show preview thumbnails in icons, though it leaves the actual setting untouched. To disable previews (as opposed to simply disabling the user to change the setting) you also need to add the following lines to konqiconviewrc: [Settings] PreviewsEnabled[$i]=false action/sharefile Disables file sharing from the UI, but you may also want to disable filesharing altogether. action/sendURL Send Link Address action/sendPage Send File action/devnew Create New -> Device action/incIconSize Increase icon size action/decIconSize Decrease icon size action/go Entire go menu action/configdesktop Configure desktop in RMB menu, see also Control Module Restrictions action/executeshellcommand In Konqueror Tools menu, see also shell_access action/show_dot Disables the option to toggle showing hidden files, the actual setting remains unaffected. To disable showing hidden files, add the following lines to konqiconviewrc: [Settings] ShowDotFiles[$i]=false Konsole These keys can appear in kdeglobals, konsolepartrc or konsolerc.

If this field is present the .desktop file is only considered valid if the action(s) mentioned in this field has been authorized. If multiple actions are listed they should be separated by commas (','). If the .desktop file of an application lists one or more actions this way and the user has no authorization for even one of these actions then the application will not appear in the KDE menu, will not allow execution via that .desktop file and will not be used by KDE for opening files of associated mimetypes. File Dialog These keys disable actions that are found in the KDE file dialog. To use them, create a section in kdeglobals that looks like this: [KDE Action Restrictions][$i] action/<key>=false Key Action action/home Go to home directory action/up Go to parent directory action/back Go to previous directory action/forward Go to next directory action/reload Reload directory action/mkdir Create new directory action/toggleSpeedbar Show/hide sidebar action/sorting menu Sorting options action/short view Select short view action/detailed view Select detailed view action/show hidden Show/hide hidden files action/preview Show/hide preview action/separate dirs Show/hide separate directories Printing There are several keys that restrict various aspects of the KDE print dialog and printing system. To use them, create a configuration section like this: [KDE Resource Restrictions][$i] print/<resource key>=false Note how each of the printing keys start with print/ in the configuration file. print/copies Disables the panel that allows users to make more than one copy.print/dialog Disables the complete print dialog. Selecting the print option will immediately print the selected document using default settings. Make sure that a system wide default printer has been selected. No application specific settings are honored when this restriction is activated.print/options Disables the button to select additional print options.print/properties Disables the button to change printer properties or to add a new printer.print/selection Disables the options that allows selecting a (pseudo) printer or change any of the printer properties. Make sure that a proper default printer has been selected before disabling this option. Disabling this option also disables print/system, print/options and print/properties.print/system Disables the option to select the printing system backend, e.g. CUPS. It is recommended to disable this option once the correct printing system has been configured.Resource RestrictionsKDE applications can take advantage of many types of resources such as configuration data, caches, plugin registries, etc. These are loaded from both system-wide as well as from per-user locations on disk. It is possible to restrict use of the per-user resources directories, preventing users from adding to or altering existing shared resources. This is accomplished by creating a section like this in a configuration file: [KDE Resource Restrictions][$i] <resource key>=false The following resources can be used as keys and controlled in this manner: Key Directory Provides all n/a All resources listed in this table autostart share/autostart Apps to start on login data share/apps Application data data_<appname> share/apps Application data for the application named <appname> html share/doc/HTML HTML files icon share/icon Icons config share/config Application configurations pixmap share/pixmaps Images xdgdata-apps share/applications Application .desktop files sound share/sounds Sound files locale share/locale Localization data services share/services Protocols, plugins, kparts, control panels, etc. registry servicetypes share/servicetypes Plugin definitions, referenced in services registry entries mime share/mimelnk Mimetype definitions wallpaper share/wallpapers Desktop wallpaper images templates share/templates Document templates exe bin Executable files lib lib Libraries ScreensaversIn kdeglobals in the [KDE Action Restrictions] group: opengl_screensavers defines whether OpenGL screensavers are allowed to be used.manipulatescreen_screensavers defines whether screensavers that manipulate an image of the screen (e.g. moving chunks of the screen around) are allowed to be used.Automatic Log-outIn kscreensaverrc: [ScreenSaver] AutoLogout=true AutoLogoutTimeout=600 The timeout is the time in seconds that the user must be idle for before the logout process is automatically started. Be careful with this capability as it can lead to data loss if the user has unsaved files open. Session Capability RestrictionsThese keys apply to various capabilities associated with a desktop session and are not application specific. To use them, create a section in kdeglobals that looks like this: [KDE Action Restrictions][$i] <key>=false custom_config Whether the --config command line option should be honored. The --config command line option can be used to circumvent locked-down configuration files.editable_desktop_icons define whether icons on the desktop can be moved, renamed, deleted or added. You might want to set the path for the desktop to some read-only directory as well instead of $HOME/Desktop.lineedit_text_completion Defines whether input lines should have the potential to remember any previously entered data and make suggestions based on this when typing. When a single account is shared by multiple people you may wish to disable this out of privacy concerns.lock_screen whether the user will be able to lock the screen.logout whether the user will be able to logout from KDE.movable_toolbars define whether toolbars may be moved around by the user. See also action/options_show_toolbar.run_command whether the "Run Command" (Alt-F2) option is available.run_desktop_files defines whether users may execute desktop files that are not part of the default desktop, KDE menu, registered services and autostarting services.The default desktop includes the files under $KDEDIR/share/kdesktop/Desktop but not the files under $HOME/Desktop. The KDE menu includes all files under $KDEDIR/share/applnk and $XDGDIR/applications Registered services includes all files under $KDEDIR/share/services Autostarting services include all files under $KDEDIR/share/autostart but not the files under $KDEHOME/Autostartshell_access Whether a shell suitable for entering random commands may be started. This also determines whether the "Run Command" option (Alt-F2) can be used to run shell-commands and arbitrary executables. Likewise, executables placed in the user's Autostart folder will no longer be executed. Applications can still be autostarted by placing .desktop files in the $KDEHOME/Autostart or $KDEDIR/share/autostart directory. See also run_desktop_files.You probably also want to activate the following resource restictions:"appdata_kdesktop" - To restrict the default desktop. "apps" - To restrict the KDE menu. "xdgdata-apps" - To restrict the KDE menu. "services" - To restrict registered services. "autostart" - To restrict autostarting services.Otherwise users can still execute .desktop files by placing them in e.g. $KDEHOME/share/kdesktop/Desktopskip_drm defines if the user may omit DRM checking.start_new_session defines whether the user may start a second X session. See also the documentation on kdm configuration.switch_user defines whether user switching via kdm is allowed. See also the documentation on kdm configuration.
