As from my previous question, I asked what the power off button in the corner does. Then somebody said if you boot into the GUI automatically, it will give you some options.
How do I boot into the GUI at startup?
Assuming that you are using Raspbian, it is actually rather simple to do what you ask. Simply open the terminal, and type in the following:
The following window should show up
boot_behaviour and click enter. This should make it so that the GUI interface starts automatically.
Add thise lines to your
#!/bin/sh # # ~/.xinitrc # # Executed by startx (run your window manager from here) if [ -d /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d ]; then for f in /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc.d/*; do [ -x "$f" ] && . "$f" done unset f fi exec openbox-session ## I'm using window manager Openbox (<https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Openbox>) #exec awesome
Start X when logging in. Add the following to the bottom of
~/.bash_profile if you use
~/.zprofile if you're are using
zsh. See more on the Arch Linux Wiki.
[[ -z $DISPLAY && $XDG_VTNR -eq 1 ]] && exec startx
