Raspbian Noobs Chromium Kiosk autostart

This article is meant for myself as a reminder for every time I want to reinstall my Raspberry Pi or I need to install another and utilize the Kiosk mode in Chromium.

Some sources list up different explanations for where you need to configure the autostart options for Chromium:

  1. /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
  2. /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart
  3. ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

I have found the following location to be the right one for me, using NOOBS Raspbian OS and Chromium browser in June 2017.


The rest of the usual guide is the same as everybody else.

This is my autostart file:

@xset s off
@xset –dpms
@xset s noblank

@chromium-browser –incognito –kiosk http://your-site.com


In addition, I installed unclutter to auto hide the mouse cursor after inactivity:

sudo apt-get install unclutter


Then you just do a reboot, and you’re done.
