Recently I changed the LXDE autostart setup to automatically open the terminal after booting. I used the following two lines of code:

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

and

@lxterminal

This worked, but now the Raspberry Pi always boots into this terminal and I can't get out of this. I'm a beginner, so please take it easy on me. Very thankful for any sort of help

What do you mean with: "I can't get out of this"? Just type exit on the command line and the terminal should close.

  • Thank's for the quick anwser, but unfortunately it's not that simple. If I exit the terminal, I only get a black screen. I think I somehow deactivated the graphical GUI by changing the rc.local for the autostart, but this is really out of my league. I also reversed everything I've done, but it made no difference. – Raspberryfan May 16 at 14:18
  • @Raspberryfan Do you do something with rc.local? What do you do? And do you start the terminal with ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart? Please edit your question and complete it with this important information. Please take note that using /etc/rc.local has limitations due to Compatibility with SysV. We have seen many problems here on this site using it. Following the recommendation of the developers from systemd you should avoid using it. – Ingo May 16 at 14:48
