I am trying to launch a single application - chromium without the rest of the desktop. I am trying this command (in terminal mode):
$ startx chromium-browser --
It proceeds to start the X server, but then simply exits back to the command line. I have tried with and without the trailing
--. If I execute just
startx, the desktop starts up like normal.
I am running Raspian-Jessie 2017-04-10.
I cannot find any reason for
startx to fail and the log in
~/.local/share/xorg/Xorg.0.log doesn't show anything either.
