Yes, I’ve been playing. Here’s another handy little tip.

See, I initially used Midori browser but the friggin’ thing kept on crashing no matter what I did. After trying a couple of tweaks it kept on playing the memory leak game(Midori has the memory leak, not me) so I figured stuff it and slapped on Chromium. 

Step 1

Install chromium, x11-xserver-utils and unclutter:

sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y
sudo apt-get install chromium x11-xserver-utils unclutter

Install some fonts to make it a little more sexy:

sudo apt-get install ttf-mscorefonts-installer

Step 2

We need to prevent screen from going blank and disable screen saver:
– edit /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart and comment # screen saver line and add those lines using your favourite editor:

nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart

Change the following:

@xset s off
@xset -dpms
@xset s noblank
@chromium –kiosk –incognito http://slap.your.website.in.here

Save it and reboot.

Sorted.
