This appendix is a reference that describes the underlying file hierarchy used
in the Public Kiosk and its user interface. The Public Kiosk’s appearance and
operations are driven entirely by a local file structure in combination with SOS
Automation Control Protocol made from the kiosk
to the SOS machine. All media used in the kiosk software is locally resident and
set up in advance.
Most of the kiosk files are autogenerated on the SOS machine using the
media2kiosk utility found in the bin directory
of the SOS software installation. This utility must be run from the command
line. There are also some files that must be configured directly on the kiosk.
The files structure described below is relative to the kiosk root directory,
which is /shared/sos/kiosk on the SOS machine and
C:\shared\sos\kiosk on the kiosk machine.
