I tried this tutorial on the latest debian wheezy (2015-01-31) http://www.lukebrowning.com/hardware/raspberry-pi/touch-screen-chromium-kiosk-on-the-raspberry-pi/ but its not working anymore... (If I made the same thing on an older debian wheezy (2014-06). Its working fine. What I should modify?

It appears there is now a different autostart file to use located in /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

To get Chromium to autostart follow these instructions

  1. Type

    sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart"
    
  2. Add the following line:

    /usr/bin/chromium --kiosk --ignore-certificate-errors --disable-restore-session-state "http://www.domain.com"
    
  3. Press Ctrl+x

  4. Press y
  5. Press Enter

Worked for me!

    On Raspbian Jessie add this line @/usr/bin/chromium --kiosk --ignore-certificate-errors --disable-restore-session-state "http://www.domain.com" to /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart instead – czerasz Jul 31 '16 at 0:52

    As I understand it, Chromium is now Chromium Browser so you need @/usr/bin/chromium-browser --kiosk --disable-restore-session-state www.domain.com in the /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart. I also had to remove the quotes and http to get it to work. – Pete Nov 7 '16 at 16:16
  • The --ignore-certificate-errors also produced warnings when Chromium opened up. Otherwise, works like a charm. – miCRoSCoPiC_eaRthLinG Aug 3 '17 at 12:47
