I have setup Raspberry pi for monitoring our infrastructure. In some scenarios I needed to auto startup few applications so that I do not have to login and start the browser all time.
For this purpose I setup Chromium in to auto start in Full Screen mode and open certain urls of our monitoring applications.
I opened file autostart as below and added the below lines to make things on auto pilot:
pi@raspberrypi:~ $ vim /home/pi/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
@chromium-browser –start-fullscreen –display :0
Please note that we should enter above commands with the same user which we need to set Chromium on startup.
