I'm about done with this, for two days i have tried to simply autostart Chromium on a pi for a project at work but nothing happens when I reboot.

Using the path -

With the command -
#various xset stuff here for kiosk mode
@chromium-browser --incognito --kiosk www.google.com #just an example site btw

Chromium boots fine with the command chromium-browser. Everwhere Ive looked im doing it right and it works for everyone else. If it matters I installed Raspbian Lite and install pixel over the top (with no applications) and then installed Chromium to save resources.

Please can anyone help?

  • I wouldn't use ~. Replace that with the full path.

To add to or edit your user's autostart:

nano ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart
