I have Raspbian running on my Raspberry Pi, and I want to have a browser appear when it starts up. I am able to open a Midori window to the right page on start up, but my problem is that I receive a "cannot resolve host name" error, such like I would get if I was not connected to the internet. I followed the instructions listed on http://www.niteoweb.com/blog/raspberry-pi-boot-to-browser which were to enter in the command line:
$ sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE/autostart
Comment everything and add the following lines:
@xset s off @xset -dpms @xset s noblank @midori -e Fullscreen -a http://google.com
This process does open a Midori window on startup, but with the error mentioned above. If the page is refreshed then it works, but I want to be able to bring up a url without having a mouse or keyboard. I read that at the beginning of startup, internet may not be connected yet, so I created a bash script that delayed the process by twenty seconds before opening the Midori window. This did no work either, the same error persisted. I have also tried the process with chromium, to no avail as well.
