How to configure the ‘Browser Bar’ to disappear automatically in kiosk mode on IGEL OS?


Hi, I have a UDC-3 converted laptop with a kind of kiosk profile I created with 3.10.03 and configured it that the upper bar would not be visual. But after upgrading to the last version the bar does not disappear automatically. I can choose ‘Hide taskbar’ manually but that is not what we want. We need a full screen automatically. Known issue with the latest version?

Hi, which bar is meant exactly? The Browser Bar (like on your picture) or the Taskbar where the IGEL Start button (a.e.) is located?


@member The browser bar in the picture


Ok, can reproduce it. Please try that setting, worked for me on 10.05.500


Thanks, that was it!

Now it disappears automatically but can I hide it permanently? We don’t use this bar at all πŸ˜‰


Profile based on 10.05.500 and the config like above, should achieve that


Your the best; I forgot the ‘Hide Navigation Toolbar’ πŸ™‚

I am annoying today but now I have your attention πŸ˜‰ , do you also know how I can remove the ‘Network No link’ sign for LAN when there is no LAN cable available? Users must sign in to a Wifi network to connect to their workspace and this sign makes the users nervous….


Well… yes… There was a way… but … it doesnβ€˜t work anymoreπŸ˜… Itβ€˜s adressed as a bug for the next release.

network.interfaces.ethernet.device0.hide_progress

network.interfaces.ethernet.device1.hide_progress


Well, no problem; it’s also an answer πŸ‘
