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.

Any ideas?
