I’m using the x11 Desktop example as found on this blog post on an Intel Stick PC (Intel NUC) with the intention to run chromium in kiosk mode within xfce.
The problem is that I’m getting is poor video performance and chromium crashing (With the “aww snap, something went wrong message”) when I try and load any pages that are somewhat video / GPU intense…
Does anyone have any pointers on:
- Running Chromium in Kiosk mode and the flags to get better performance out of it OR
- Getting the native Intel Graphics drivers working reliably with the Stick inside BalenaOS and Docker?
Argument’s i’m currently using are:
CHROMIUM_FLAGS="--show-component-extension-options --ignore-gpu-blacklist --disable-background-networking --disable-gpu --enable-remote-extensions --enable-native-gpu-memory-buffers --disable-quic --enable-fast-unload --enable-tcp-fast-open --disable-gpu-compositing --force-gpu-rasterization --enable-zero-copy" chromium --no-sandbox --temp-profile $* --kiosk "https://www.youtube.com/embed/z2gXCuq8UKM?autoplay=1" $CHROMIUM_FLAGS
And I’m getting the following in the logs before chrome crashes:
[1487:1532:0913/112004.075030:ERROR:bus.cc(396)] Failed to connect to the bus: Could not parse server address: Unknown address type (examples of valid types are "tcp" and on UNIX "unix")
