If the monitor ever looks wrong, simply unplug the Raspberry Pi and plug it back in.

Note: Before attempting any programming please be familiar with linux .sh executable files and linux services using systemctl. The actual graphic files are raw html.

Note2: Backup files before updating. There is no versioning.

1. Find the Raspberry Pi IP Address
Method 1: Use IP scanner to find the IP address
Method 2:

Go to this website, the log files are here. If you still can’t get in try rebooting the Raspberry Pi and do it again.

2. Use Putty or other command line terminal to SSH into the Raspberry pi.

3. There is a service program running.

$ sudo systemctl status kiosk.service


$ cd /etc/systemd/system/
$ ls -l
$ cat kiosk.service

The service program starts an executable file.

$ cd /home/pi/kiosk/
$ ls -l
$ cat

The file starts a Chromium browser which points to relative files located on the Raspberry Pi.


After changes are made you will need to reboot the Rasbperry Pi.

There is also a crontab under the sudo user that runs each night to update the some-webpage.html.

Each monitor is a different size and has separate html and css files. Do not transport the files from one to another.
