Minimal Armbian for H3 chip with kiosk feature


Recommended Posts

Hello,

 

I am looking for a Minimal Armbian for H3 chip with kiosk feature. I don't need desktop interface but still need a web browser to open at startup. 

 

Is there any version like this? I need it minimum because i will install on eMMC of the Orange Pi PC Plus and it has only 8GB.

Hello @thanh_tan,

 

next time I will try the same with Orange Pi One.

 

My search point to this adress:  https://desertbot.io/blog/raspberry-pi-touchscreen-kiosk-setup

 

It's based on a cli (small) image with Chromium, no desktop need.

 

Found also a artickel, but it's in german with the firefox browser.

 

Maybe this helps a little bit..

This derserbot cannot work on armbian since armbian doesn't allow autologin with username.

On Raspi they have on raspi-config

 

Boot Options> Desktop CLI> Console Autologin

 

but armbian-config don't

I have found the solution for autologin from console here https://askubuntu.com/questions/819117/how-can-i-get-autologin-at-startup-working-on-ubuntu-server-16-04-1

 

First, find the agetty

type -a agetty

 

It will returns, like this

agetty is /usr/sbin/agetty

agetty is /sbin/agetty

 

note /sbin/agetty

 

Then run this

sudo systemctl edit getty@tty1.service

 

This will the create a drop-in file (if neccessary) and open it an editor. Add the following, replacing myusername with username:

[Service]
ExecStart=
ExecStart=-/sbin/agetty --noissue --autologin myusername %I $TERM 
Type=idle

 

This will:

Create the folder /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty1.service.d if necessary

Create the file /etc/systemd/system/getty@tty1.service.d/override.conf if necessary

 

 

Then reboot. Since i have follow the above instruction from desertbot.io, it will appear the website

Hello,

 

great that it works for you and you were able to solve the differences between RPi and Armbian. 👍

 

For my part, I have not dig deep in the project, since for me it is a "bad weather project" in the future of this year.

 

Thanks for your tips, I'll use them... 🙂

 

What about the space of your eMMC?

I think no Problem.

The Orange PI PC Plus has 8GB and all the os and chromium took only 3GB. 
That's sound good for me now

I have followed this instruction and success with display video on orange pi but there are two problem need to ask more.

 

1. How to get the sound output with HDMI out? Tried alsa-mixer to setup sound out with hdmi, but seem that chromium doesn't play the sound

 

2. The default resolution is 1024x800. Want to upgrade to 1080p but cannot
