Setting up a raspberry pi kiosk


#1

I just want to throw this out there, I have been using taplist.io for a bit now, and I love it. But one HUGE issue I have with my taplist running of a pi is that when ever my pi reboots, I get that stupid “Restore pages” prompt in chromium. Well, if you followed https://taplist.io/help/raspberry-pi-setup for setting up your rpi, you need to remove the auto start setup from that

rm -rf ~/.config/autostart/

And then use this blog to set up your kiosk https://www.the-empire.systems/linux/set-raspberry-pi-kiosk-mode/ it works perfect, I use it on my brewpi as well to display the temps. I can pull the plug on my taplist pi and plug it back in, no “restore pages” prompt. And if your like me, I don’t have a mouse and keyboard plugged in, so its a huge pain in the ass when it comes up.

hope this helps!

Hi Dotps1 , do you have brewpi and taplist showing at the same time ? Split screen ? Cheers :grin:
