I have made a clean install of Ubuntu 14.04 LTS Desktop and now want's to convert it into a kiosk with a full screen webbrowser.
This was previously done in 10.04 and worked perfect, but due to hardware changes (graphics) we are forced to use version 14.04.

/usr/share/xsessions and a shell script called
kiosk.sh that launches firefox with
r-kiosk installed. The shell script is executable.
