Raspberry Digital Signage is an open source Linux-based operating system designed for digital signage installations on the Raspberry Pi hardware.
It was tested with Raspberry Pi model B (512MB of RAM) microcomputer, with both multimedia view (video player and image slideshow) and web view (HTML and HTML5 pages display).
The web view has three different possible sub-views: the Mozilla Firefox experience, the Chromium experience and the Midori experience.
Raspberry Digital Signage is a port of Instant WebKiosk/Easy Digital Signage for PCs, and it is engineered to run in full-screen mode (there is no way to escape this view but rebooting the Raspberry Pi).
- Raspbian backend updated.
- Better virtual keyboard, which now is displayed only when text input is needed (and feature enabled, of course). Thanks to Stephen Wille Padnos.
- Network settings page is displayed only if network is unconfigured (unplug network cable/adapter and reboot to force showing it).
- VNC server installed for the web view (see FAQ on how to change password; default is "rds").
- Instructions adding for a pseudo-navigation panel, Chrome view (useful when managing popups in the digital signage kiosk view is needed). Thanks to marco-s_m.
- Instructions added to site FAQ on how to remove cursor on screen (useful for touch screens). Thanks to Stephen Wille Padnos.
