I've seen solutions for non-PI situations to start the x-11 server without loading the desktop. I want to boot straight into my Python script that uses tkinter for the gui. I've found out that you need the x-11 running to draw the graphics. Is there a solution to this for the Raspberry Pi?? My app is full screen and when you switch windows you can see the desktop. Also, the only thing I want the end user to ever see is the app. No desktop, no internet, nothing. Is there a distro for the pi that does this?
I've started porting the app to use Kivy instead of tkinter and it's been horrible. I don't grasp the Kivy way of doing things. The only thing the app does is use the gpio ports to return temp values and switches between 4 screens. Should be very simple....sigh.
Any advice would be appreciated.
