Meta Kiosk: How to run multiple different types of kiosk modes on a Sun Ray Server/FOG

Haven't you ever wanted to be able to have more than one type of  kiosk running from the same Sun Ray server or FOG? Now you can. JDS, UTTSC, VDA, VDA no Card, VDM, and even non-kiosk uses like X11 (using Xnest), VNC and full screen apps. (I've even thrown utswitch and xterm for convenience.)

I've "productised" a Kiosk mode that sits above other Kiosks to call on them as required - as always, based on what you tell your tokens to use, leveraging the "Other Info" field.

It's called "META KIOSK".

Solaris x86 ICA client Windows(Meta) key not working

For those of you who have recently downloaded, and are trying, the new Solaris x86 ICA client, there was a packaging issue which leaves the Windows(Meta) key not working.

This is an issue for Version 8.50 of the Client.

This key is handy for things like Opening the Start menu or Windows-E for opening Windows Explorer, and particularly useful for sending the Meta-L lock screen sequence on card pull

According to Citrix, in order to get this key functioning,you will need to edit the /usr/lib/ICAClient/config/module.ini

You will need to add these lines to line numbers 28-30:

LocaleKeyMapping=True
SuperMetaToWinKeys=True
RightSuperMetaToWinKey=False
