Set Full-Screen Boot Up¶
Experience the full-screen self-boot interface first.
Please close the already open Home Assistant URL and run
chromium-browser --start-fullscreen "http://localhost:8123".
If you want to automatically display the Home Assistant interface in full screen after booting, then do the following.
1. Go to the autostart folder
If the autostart folder does not exist, you need to create a new one.
sudo mkdir -p /home/pi/.config/autostart/
2. Create chrome_start_fullscreen.desktop file
sudo nano chrome_start_fullscreen.desktop
3. Edit the chrome_start_fullscreen.desktop file
[Desktop Entry] Type = Application Exec = chromium-browser --start-fullscreen "http://localhost:8123"
Save and exit: Ctrl+ X, Y, Enter.
If you want to cancel the full-screen self-start, comment out the contents of the .desktop file (by “#” )and restart the RaspberryPi.
cd /home/pi/.config/autostart/ sudo nano chrome_start_fullscreen.desktop
4. Exit full screen
Method 1: Press F11.
Method 2: Move the mouse to the upper column of the screen and click the exit button that appears.
Method 3: Right-click the pop-up menu, select “Exit full screen”.
Long press the blank space to pop up the menu, click the exit button at the top of the screen or select “Exit full screen”.
