Kitchen Display Screen 6


 

 

The Kitchen Screen, was the first application to be released under the Chromis banner, in July 2015.

The application has been written to work on Windows, Linux and a Raspberry Pi 2. Yes, to help keep the costs of implementing the project down, a version of applications has been developed to run a the Raspberry Pi 2. It has also been decided not to release a version of the application dedicated to the Apple, as it is felt the cost of the hardware would too high for it use in a kitchen type environment. However, it should be an easy task to port the code over if required.

  • Screen resolutions from 1024×768.
  • Program keys to order panels, for use with keyboard.
  • Low hardware costs.
  • Easy to use Configuration options.

    Hi.
    I try to install kitchenscreen but the installation program says it can’t find any java on my machine, despite I’ve java openJDK 1.8.0_72 installed on it.
    What happen ?

      Hi

      The install does not detect the openJDK software, as it stand the software has only been tested with the Oracle Java release.

    I follow the readme instructions, and I receive the following error message.

    Other than that, ChromisPos is great! Just hope to figure out what I’m doing wrong with the Kitchen Screen add on.
