I have successfully been using ubuntu 18.04 LTS with Chromium Kiosk to show my Home Assistant webpage.
I wasnt keen on the screensaver that I got working on the command line but seen a user on Home Assistant that is now using LXDE with Chromium and the Chrome Extension Phot Screen Saver successfully.
I have only managed once out of 3 attempts to get LXDE to work.
My original install had
ubuntu 18.04 LTS
I have tried adding
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install lubuntu-core
sudo apt install matchbox-keyboard
sudo apt install chromium-browser
sudo of-settings autostartx of
but when I reboot I get just a black screen and it wont go back into the desktop.
Is there a simpler way to do this as I have also tried the lbuntu 14.04 with full mashings and it was very slow compared. So lighter the better
The end result I would like is to kiosk it to open my webpage for Home Assistant with a screensaver after 5 or 10 minutes with the chrome extension which shows temperature and time on a screen saver with images
A bonus would be to make it a media player so Home Assistant can see it to play commands to or listen to the radio but not as sophisticated as Squeezebox
