How to implement a kiosk mode on a Pi?

I'd like to start BBC Basic SDL (and X) at boot time, on a Raspberry Pi running raspbian, and have it run a Basic program automatically. I'd also like it to start in full screen mode. The idea is to drive the display using VDU commands which will be read from elsewhere.

But so far I haven't yet found out how to get full screen. I'm assuming the SDL version on X on linux on Pi is a reasonable combination to do this.

Is getting an undecorated full screen something I can do using SDL facilities, or do I perhaps need to tell X to do this, somehow?


  • Aha! Maybe this is what I need:
    • bbcsdl -fullscreen
