10.3: Set up a kiosk machine with an auto-open folder
Authored by: raider on Nov 12, '03 02:48:01PM
I also have some questions about "simple finder".

When I set a user to simple finder, then the apps they run are not allowed to change resolution. Breaks most of my kids' games. Under Jaguar it worked fine. The app would load, change to 640x480 or whatever, and then when it closed it went back to the system resolution. In Panther it won't change the resolution, instead just runs "small" (only using say the center 640x480 pixels with black border on all the rest). This works once then after that starts getting unstable - and since the kids open and close games often, it can lock the machine pretty quickly.

Also, since the new version of "DiskCopy" which handles image mounting, "diskimagemounter", won't allow us to turn off the auto verify option - I have switched to using Mount which works much better. I specified Mount as the program to use to open all .dmg files, and it works as advertised. But when I put the images in the login items, only the first one ever gets mounted.

I would also like to know how to modify the dock for somple finder accounts!
