I can't get my raspberry pi to display images using
feh at startup.
I have tried placing my simple feh command wrapped in a shell in cron jobs,
init.d but nothing is working.
I tried placing it at
~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi as is suggested here (Execute script on start-up) as well, but it still is not working.
What I am able to get is an error just before my command terminal allows me to start typing. That error is:
feh ERROR: Can't open X display. It *is* running, yeah?
I've gotten this error alot. I think it's due to where in time the program runs, and if the display drivers and such are ready to put up images.
I know that init.d, cron, rc.local (not existent on raspberry pi jessie pixel) , and dot files on the desktop are useful for this startup task.
What is the easiest solution to this if I have a shell script that I know works and want to start it automatically as soon as humanly possible when the raspberry pi is turned on.
I am doing this to make a fancy picture slideshow for someone who knows nothing of computers. Any solution such as downloading something like magic mirror software will be fine as long as it is simple to get working.
