I have a jar file I am trying to run without the raspbian os. Basically just boot straight into the application. I have my commands to run the jar file in /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart. Is there any way i can disable the gui and have that application startup script to still run. Also the application runs chromium browser to view the application on local host. I apologize if this is a basic or stupid question in advance.

  • You cannot run a jar file without first loading some OS. Do you really mean that you don't want to run the OS?

No, it is not possible with Raspberry because the script

/etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

is loaded by LXDE which is GUI. Also, you have chosen the wrong file to start your application. It should be

/home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

Even if you made some changes in xinit files and stopped LXDE to load. Then your jar file won't be able to open chromium because there will be no X display running.

  • First you need to disable login to Desktop and enable login to console.

  • Now make your file executable (Search the internet there are plenty of tutorials)

  • Now edit the rc.local file: sudo nano /etc/rc.local

  • Add these lines before exit0:

    export DISPLAY=:0

    startx /path/to/your/file

  • Now reboot

Your app will now open without loading the Desktop
