PWB version for Linux?

Postby tabwebmaster » Fri Feb 10, 2006 12:40 am

I have been looking for something as nice as PWB that would work on Linux systems. I haven't been able to find anything. Would you consider porting PWB to Linux?

If not, would you have any good recommendations? All I need is something that will lock down everything and present only the browser with a back, forward, home, refresh, stop. I work at a public library and I have been tasked with finding something that would work for the public card catalog machines. I am going to install Ubuntu 5.10 on all of them but I need a PWB that will work with Linux.

Any thoughts or recommendations would be much appreciated. If anyone here has ever used Linux for their card catalog machines I'd love to hear how you did it.

Thanks,
Mark

I don't want to speak for Scott, but seeing as how PWB uses the Internet Explorer web browser control, I don't see how that would even be possible...

PWB does indeed use Internet Explorer. You may be able to use PWB in a Windows virtual machine in Linux, but then you may as well be running windows.
