    I followed your guide to the letter, it all works perfectly, but when I insert:

    su -l pi -c “env FRAMEBUFFER=/dev/fb1 startx &”

    sudo nano /etc/rc.local

    after restarting the desktop does not start, the screen remains black. The boot is displayed but the screen of raspbian not see and I run it manually via ssh:

    FRAMEBUFFER = / dev / fb1 startx

    and I get:

    _XSERVTransSocketOpenCOTSServer: Unable to open socket for inet6
    _XSERVTransOpen: Open failed for transport inet6 / raspberrypi: 1
    _XSERVTransMakeAllCOTSServerListeners: Failed to open listener for inet6

    But I can work quietly.
    How do I solve the problem?

    Does it work when you run in manually?

    Yes!!! Manually it ok

    Mark Williams

    can you show me what the contents of /etc/rc.local is. When it has the startx command in it.

    Mark --


    sorry for the delay. I was busy at work . Here is the content of rc.local:

    #!/bin/sh -e
    # rc.local
    # This script is executed at the end of each multiuser runlevel.
    # Make sure that the script will “exit 0” on success or any other
    # value on error.
    # In order to enable or disable this script just change the execution
    # bits.
    # By default this script does nothing.

    # Print the IP address
    _IP=$(hostname -I) || true
    if [ “$_IP” ]; then
    printf “My IP address is %s\n” “$_IP”
    su -l pi -c “env FRAMEBUFFER=/dev/fb1 startx &”
    exit 0


    up? thanks!

    Mark Williams

    I am not sure why it isn’t working.
    Have you changed the keyboard layout?

    What about our image, have you tried it?

    Mark --


    you have changed the layout … now I feel your image and see what happens.


    with your image works perfectly !!! I wanted to add kodi. it’s possible? I have to do something in particular?
