I am currently trying to set up a Raspberry-Pi as a very light-weight/simple monitoring solution. All it has to do is open up a web-page on boot.
Opening the web-page was easy enough. I simply put a desktop file into
~/.config/autostart with a command like:
chromium-browser --kiosk http://192.168.1.23/monitor.html
So far so good. There are two problems however:
- I see a toolbar stating "This page is in German. Would you like to translate it?
- When I unplug the R-Pi and re-plug it I get the yellow "restore session" toolbar.
I cannot figure out a way to fix this. I tried with
--temp-session hoping the "restore session" would go away. Unfortunately it did not :(
I also tried with
--app which did not change a thing.
Any idea how to fix that? Note that I am not fixed on chromium. It just happens to be the one browser I found which makes it easy to launch in fullscreen with a URL in once simple command.
