I've installed Raspian Jessie Lite and added on the minimum I can to get a browser running fullscreen. I started off with IceWeasel:
sudo apt-get install -y x-window-system iceweasel
And put this into my
Now, when I run
startx it loads IceWeasel. However, it only took up a small; portion of the screen. I was able to fix that by loading IceWeasel, closing it, then modifying the file that stored the window size and make it 1920x1080.
That was all fine, until I discovered IceWeasel didn't support all th nice new ECAMScript goodness Chrome did. So, I'm trying to swap for Chromium. I've managed to get it all installed, and I've changed my
.xinitrc to this:
chromium-browser --start-maximized --kiosk http://localhost/
However, when this launches it only uses about (possibly exactly) half of the screen! I've tried various options but can't get it working.
--start-fullscreen is even weirder and renders correctly but gets chopped in half! :(
Note: I'm trying to avoid installing any window manager/etc, as it seems like it shouldn't be required when IceWeasel is already all working correctly!?
