Raspberry Pi Live Fullscreen Kiosk Mode Panorama Slider on 7″ TFT LCD
Directions for creating the autostart script in Wheezy using Epiphany browser and other browsers can be found here: https://github.com/elalemanyo/raspberry-pi-kiosk-screen#epiphany-browser
This also disables screen blanking and screensaver.
If you plan to use Wifi, it is good to configure it before you enable autostart script.
Tested on RPi 2 B+ with Raspbian WHEEZY image, which can be downloaded here: http://ftp.jaist.ac.jp/pub/raspberrypi/raspbian/images/raspbian-2015-05-07/
It should also work on RPi 1 and RPi 3, as far as you use Wheezy image (not Jessie).
Wiki with instructions how to get the Waveshare 7″ TFT LCD HDMI touch screen working are here: http://www.waveshare.com/wiki/7inch_HDMI_LCD_(B)
Note that on newer displays you don’t need to follow these instructions, because displays work out-of-the-box with Raspbian.
Youtuber id “MDF Rescuer” will be making a wooden (MDF) case for this project, to create a frame suitable to mount on wall.

My only role was the Software development, now it’s time for a nice enclosure. And I’m pretty sure it will be very tricky because of the HDMI and USB connectors that stand out.
