So I have a Raspberry PI that has a nice 7" 1024x600 monitor on it that Ubuntu-Mate automatically recognizes and uses - so far so great
But this is going to be an embedded device, and I want the Pi to boot up X then run my program. I was hoping to run it within .xinitrc, which works fine if I log into the console and run 'startx'. It doesn't work on reboot though, because the session manager takes over and launches the desktop when I log in.
Ideally I don't want the session manager to run at all, I just want (on boot) to start X and have my .xinitrc strut its funky stuff. Is there a way to keep the resolution-detection that Ubuntu-mate does for me, but not have the login process ? (and run my .xinitrc instead!)
