If the kiosk gets restarted you'll need to click the mouse once on the chrome window for it to get focus (or be activated or brought to the foreground or something like that) before it will read cards.

It also runs waspd as a systemd service, code from here: https://github.com/londonhackspace/wasp-label-printer to talk to the printer, which isn't a st andard cups-supported printer.
