Using the Raspberry Pi as a wall display

When the Raspberry Pi first cam to our office, I set it up as a wallboard displaying various graphs, however some time later the SD card failed and it all went down the tube! When setting it up again I had to start again with the learning curve as my notes had gone missing, so here is the documented version!

1. Update the system:

# sudo apt-get update && apt-get upgrade -y

2. Install the Chromium browser:

sudo apt-get install chromium x11-xserver-utils unclutter

3. Set the start up file:

@xset s off
@xset -dpms
@xset s noblank
@lxpanel --profile LXDE
@pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE
# @xscreensaver -no-splash
@chromium --kiosk --incognito

4. Reboot

sudo reboot
