I know this because when I quit Kodi I can see the page I was trying to open. If you have some free time, I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd help with this. Thank you for the awesome software! find

If you have some free time, I'd greatly appreciate it if you'd help with this. Thank you for the awesome software! I have the same issue. But I believe it is because I have added advanced settings to keep kodi on top. I need to keep kodi on top so when change kodi to window mode I can do other things while still seeing TV. Chrome Launcher is visibile when kodi is on top in window mode or I minimise kodi to use chrome launcher without kodi visible. Then when I quite chrome launcher kodi comes back using event ghost to automate most of this just by a single press on my remote (all but the window mode change is automated).

Hi Make a new launcher link to say google and switch off kiosk mode... start up the link and minimize the browser..then use the mouse and the keyboard shortcuts to resize the blackbox window http://manpages.ubuntu.com/manpages/jaun...box.1.html look at the sections after "Window Decorations" in the above link I did something similar in openbox and it appeared to have worked Thanks I'll give that a go latter today. I have the same issue. No overscan options on my TV. I did find the below link, but I'm honestly not smart enough to determine how to integrate it either into Chrome settings or the default.py of Chrome Launcher or if it's even possible. Is there any usable information there regarding bounds or insets to help correct overscan in chrome while in kiosk mode? https://developer.chrome.com/apps/system_display find

I have multiple displays but only want it to run on my TV, for obvious reasons. is there a way to select which one?? it doesn't seem to be following my settings in Kodi itself, which is set to the correct one. thanx find

Right now, I do this with an AutoIt script, but it's messy: watch for Chrome process, kill Kodi when Chrome launches, then restart Kodi after Chrome is closed. find

It is linked to your script.sh and gets error messages. I've tried it in OpenElec and OSMC, running Kodi on Raspberry Pi 1 & 2. None of them can open Google Chrome. Is this only designed for use on Windows or MacOS? find

I'm using this script to startup chrome: Code: #!/bin/bash /usr/bin/chromium-browser "$@" /etc/asound.conf Code: pcm.!default { type hw card 0 device 3 } ctl.!default { type hw card 0 device 3 } If I remove asound.conf then video will start but whit no sound. aplay -l Code: kodi@mcenter:~$ aplay -l **** List of PLAYBACK Hardware Devices **** card 0: HDMI [HDA Intel HDMI], device 3: HDMI 0 [HDMI 0]   Subdevices: 1/1   Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 card 0: HDMI [HDA Intel HDMI], device 7: HDMI 1 [HDMI 1]   Subdevices: 1/1   Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 card 1: PCH [HDA Intel PCH], device 0: ALC283 Analog [ALC283 Analog]   Subdevices: 1/1   Subdevice #0: subdevice #0 kodi@mcenter:~\$ The problem seems to be in asound.conf but I dont know, because in other webistes eg. Vimeo couchmode there is sound and all the other sites. only yt leanback does not work, just keeps loading.. find
