I've installed Ubuntu 13.10 and I'm trying to enter kiosk mode in chromium right on boot, but nothing is working.
I've been using this method (http://nexxylove.tumblr.com/post/22690398464/ubuntu-web-kiosk-in-10-easy-steps)
Create ~/.xsession, add the following; #!/usr/bin/env bash chromium-browser
Then when I'm running startx in terminal, it just refreshes the desktop and chromium doesn't pop up.
I've also tried the method with customized session:
1) Open a file (gksu gedit /usr/share/xsessions/Firefox.desktop) and paste: [Desktop Entry] Name=Firefox (No effects) Comment=This session only opens Firefox Exec=/usr/bin/firefox -height 1200 -width 1600 Icon= Type=Application
But it doesn't work either. When I click on this file, chrome (I've changed the names) pops up. What am I doing wrong? I've spent almost 3 hours on this, trying to resolve it, followed many tutorials.
Ok, figured it out. I created /.xsessionrc instead of .xsession and now it works flawlessly.
