Auto login on chromium

Tue May 15, 2018 2:40 pm

Hi everyone, basically I need to auto login an account when I start a chromium in kiosk mode on a raspberry pi 3. Is a wallboard on a TV without keyboard or mouse. Thanks a lot and I'll wait for help.

You might want to have a look at using xdotool. This will allow you to make scripts that do keyboard and mouse commands.

You could use autostart to start chromium and then issue xdotool commands to enter the login etc.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Stretch w/ Desktop OS.
