I've tried to get the mir-kiosk snap on Ubuntu Core, on a Raspberry Pi 3, running. Installation progress went fine, using these two tutorials; * http://voices.canonical.com/alan.griffiths/2017/01/31/mircade-snap/ * http://www.lieberbiber.de/2017/02/27/mir-and-graphics-on-ubuntu-core/

One person has made a comment about it working flawlessly on Raspberry Pi 3, but it doesn't on my side. I've tried the suggested "snap connection" without any luck.

I don't get any error messages. Have tried many reboots and reinstalls.

Any suggestions?

The pi have both Ethernet and WiFi connection. Connected to a 40 TV through HDMI.

  • Hm, thought if someone has a suggestion I could try out, I wouldn't have to bother him with such questions. – Joachim Aug 8 '17 at 18:00
  • Well you can hope someone with more experience with these packages come along. – Panther Aug 8 '17 at 18:09
  • Yeah, sure. That's why I'm posting here. – Joachim Aug 8 '17 at 19:22

I happened to be trying this just last week, and stumbled across a bug which I presume was causing your problems:


There is a workaround mentioned there, but a newer core snap has the proper fix integrated.

So I'd recommend using the Daily/Edge RPi3 image available here (it also has reliably working wifi). Next install the core snap from the edge channel, and then you can follow Alan Griffith's guide.
