Silverjuke --kiosk + Ubuntu Startup

Postby albertus » 30. May 16, 18:15

Good Day Silverjuke Users

Could anyone guide me in a direction to enable silverjuke to boot into kiosk mode from Ubuntu bootup?

Thank You

Good Day

Manage to get Silverjuke to boot into --kiosk mode on Lubuntu bootup:

sudo nano /etc/default/grub
* GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="text"
sudo update-grub
sudo systemctl enable multi-user.target --force
sudo systemctl set-default multi-user.target

.xinitrc to root folder:

#!/bin/sh

while true; do

xset -dpms; xset s off

xrandr -d :0 --output VGA-1 --mode 1366x768 --primary
xrandr -d :0 --output DVI-I-1 --mode 1366x768 --right-of VGA-1

exec matchbox-window-manager -use_titlebar no -use_cursor no &

sudo silverjuke --update --kiosk --kioskrect=1 --visrect=2

done;

------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

chmod a+x .xinitrc
insert "su root -c xinit &" into /etc/rc.local

Hope this helps anyone else.

Wow a lot of lines. What is all this doing?

With Ubuntu Mate there are under
/system/preferences/personal/startup-applications:

I just added a entry with "silverjuke --kiosk"

What unfortunatly is not working is the virtual keyboard ind kiosk mode (although I enabled it) ?!?!
Any idea about that?
