Fedora 26 | xguest Kiosk Mode | Login just looping

asked 2017-11-02 12:35:28 +0000

Hi there,

I'm trying to configure Fedora 26 in kiosk mode using a fresh install. I've run through the installation then yum install xguest which completed successfully. Following this, I checked getenforce to ensure it was Enforcing which it was. At the GDM login screen, I can see the guest account now visible, however when selecting it, the screen goes black and then back to the login screen again?

Any advice?

I'm sure this is because of Wayland.

Do all you know if there is a current replacement to "xguest" to be used in this kind of graphical server?
