/etc/rc.local not running command on boot

Hey, ive added the line "chromium-browser" to the end of my /etc/rc.local file, (before exit 0) in an attempt to lauch Chromium on boot. Chromium opens fine when I run /etc/rc.local in a terminal, however it refuses to lauch when the system starts up. Any idea what im doing wrong?

Re: Will running the Pi from a USB source damage it?

Plus, there's the issue of the display, proudly representing the store to customers, with an inexplicable lightning symbol in the corner. It was a good idea, but didn't pan out. I'm not too worried about the lightning symbol. It's barely noticeable anyway. ;) The Pi Zero uses noticeably less power ...

Re: Will running the Pi from a USB source damage it?

AFAIK it shouldnt damage the pi. However the pi may become unstable or crash, which may corrupt the data on the sd card.

How were you powering the pi's? Were they in cases? Exactly how and where were they setup? Did you make any notable hardware (or software) changes recently before they died?
