As grkreidl has pointed out in the manual:


"If you want your system to boot into your browser desktop, you have to edit two files (as root, e. g. with "sudo nano"):
1) /etc/inittab
Look for a line like that:
1:2345:respawn:/sbin/getty noclear 38400 tty1
Put a "#" in front and add the following line after it:
1:2345:respawn:/bin/login f pi tty1 </dev/tty1 >/dev/tty1 2>&1
2) /etc/rc.local
Add the following line just in front of the line with "exit 0"
su l pi c "xinit ./kioskm" "

Are you reading some other manual?
