Re: Python script automatic start

If booting to desktop then use autostart:

Code: Select all

/etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart
You must specify the complete path when calling your script.
Also you must specify the complete path when opening any files within your script.

Re: Actual Working Guide on how to auto-start Chromium at 200% zoom

A quick Google turned up this command:

chromium-browser --force-device-scale-factor=2.0 www.raspberrypi.org
Note that 2.0 means 200% .... Adjust as necessary.

Add the above command to whats already in autostart:

Is that the way that Raspbian is supposed to work? I hadn't had that problem before. Shouldn't Pi be added to some group to make desktop apps work without root access?
