1. default sound is very low
2. adjust the volume to higher bar (alsamixer)
3. create save file/changes.dat
4. reboot
Well, nothing saved, I have to adjust the volume again.

Well..,yes, indeed just after creating save, the soundlevel isn't saved, it would be the second time though.
(if savefile or savefolder is already activated at boot, saving soundlevels works)
Anyway made new ISO's with initial soundlevel set higher and fixed that soundlevel isn't saved first time save. Download at first post (v 2019-10-06).
Getting there step by step Smile

Thanks for the feedback !

Fred

1. The sound level setting in changes.dat is solved, unfortunately it is not working in remaster Iso (Sound level is back to default position).
2. In my opinion, ALT+F1 feature is not good (a user is not allowed to access the desktop).
3. I have a small video in wmv format, hope it is uploadable. The basic idea is, after input admin-password it will show up the taskbar while still in openkiosk, from there administrator can do whatever like printscreen, copy, edit etc.

1. Yes that's intended, so there's better chance the remaster works on another computer with different soundcard.
What you can do (if running frugal install) is save the file '/var/lib/alsa/asound.state' (where the soundlevels are stored) before making remaster and create directory structure in the frugal install 'rootcopy' folder, so you get "rootcopy/var/lib/alsa/" and put 'asound.state' in there, then after reboot soundlevel is fixed to what you've set earlier.
EDIT: Note that the file '/var/lib/alsa/asound.state' will only be present after reboot with changes saved

2. Administrator is supposed to change that keybind to something more complicated and therefore secret, but fact is that if the user manages to close openkiosk, he/she cannot do anything without knowing the administrator password.

3. That's nice, it's the way it works on Windows I assume? Not like that on Linux when running admin mode.
Tried a few different Linux OS's with different Desktop Environments but Openkiosk's default fullscreen appearance cannot be changed AFAIK.
