As a part of a project, I would like to setup a raspberry pi 4 - Buster, with chromium - kiosk mode. These raspberry-pies will only display the websites we want. After succeeding to accomplish this I want to finish it with a discreet login, where there isn't any or as little login activity possible going about on screen.
The reason is that I don't want to make an impression that there is actually a working desktop computer behind it and making things look "cleaner".
Additionally speeding up the booting process would also be welcome.
To summarize: My aim is to boot to chromium discreetly and in a clean fashion.
I've tried to run my start script from different places like
lxsession autostart and more. But it always first starts loading desktop and then chromium. Lastly, I tried to autologin to shell and use
xinit start_kiosk.sh on the start script and it says
xinit: connection to Xserver lost".
After coming to this far I'm prepared to learn and do a lot to make this happen. Any information would really help and is appreciated. If it is possible to come up with a
secure-r solution I would be even more grateful.
