Kiosk setup on a Raspberry Pi running Jessie and the Pixel Desktop

I've started playing around with embedding a Pi with a little 2.4" screen into a prop and I've noticed all the howtos for this kind of thing are old and don't apply circa March 2017.

Now we have the Pixel desktop it's very similar but you need to edit the following file...


#@lxpanel --profile LXDE-pi
@pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE-pi
#@xscreensaver -no-splash
@xset s off
@xset -dpms
@xset s noblank
@chromium-browser --kiosk --incognito

Make it look like this by commenting out the lines for lxpanel and xscreensaver then add an entry to start Chromium at the end opening whatever page you'd like Chromium to start with.

  1. Oh, excellent. That'll save me from figuring out how to do that for my current Pi project. I'm just about in a position to restart work on it too.
