Let's Make a ComfilePi HMI

When the ComfilePi is turned on, the web browser is automatically executed, and when WebVISU is displayed in full screen, it operates like an HMI.

1. The CODESYS executable file can be started automatically on power off and on.


2. Edit autostart file.

sudo nano .config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

@xset s off
@xset -dpms
@xset s noblank
@apropos chromium
@chromium-browser -kiosk --start-fullscreen http://localhost:8080/webvisu.htm

Type this to save it: ctrl+X, Y, Enter

The result demonstrated in the video below

Hide Cursor

Hiding the cursor will make it appear more professional.

1. Install unclutter.

sudo apt-get install unclutter

2. Edit Autostart file.

sudo nano .config/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

Add this.

@unclutter -idle 0.1

Check result

It is also possible to hide the mouse cursor permanently by adding using this method.
