Kisok mode issues

Thu Jul 19, 2018 6:50 pm


Hoping someone can help.

I've followed the tutorial to set up a pi for kiosk mode in our office, I've flashed the memory card to use lite as we only have a Pi v1 and its a bit slow running the full GUI.

When I try to run

Code: Select all

startx -- -nocursor
I keep hitting errors.

Any suggestions?

Output below!
