Introduction: RPI Web Kiosk

This tutorial assumes you already have a raspberry Pi installed with Rasbian, a nice display and a wired network connection.

1. Install chromium , screen and x11vnc using apt-get

2. edit /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf and add the line 'xserver-command=X -s 0 dpms' under [SeatDefaults]

3. create a directory called 'autostart' under '.config'

4. create two entries chromium.desktop and x11vnc.desktop:
[Desktop Entry]
Type=Application
Name=chromium
Exec=chromium --kiosk  www.twitterfall.com
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Hidden=false

[Desktop Entry]
Encoding=UTF-8
Type=Application
Name=X11VNC
Exec=x11vnc -forever -shared -usepw -display :0 -ultrafilexfer
StartupNotify=false
Terminal=false
Hidden=false

5. reboot! and enjoy the magic, if you ever need to kill the chromium instance ssh in and kill it (pkill)

ok so I'm way way outside the box here since I have no clue what this is suppose to do. From the title my first thought was that some kind of ordering/Drive-thru-kind-of-system (you choose your option and then you get it at the register).

So what is the goal?

I'd like to do the same with RPi2 and iceweasel.. It seems that it's quite different ??

Thank's by advance..
