New Linux Player Auto Start Iusse

OK lets start by saying sorry about the distro used in this question that follows.

Player Hardware
Intel NUC i3
4GB Memory
128 SSD drive

OS
Debian 7 Wheezy ( I know this isnt a supported distro ) 
fvwm as a windows manager

We try to keep the foot print of the distro as small as we can :p

My company have been using this set up for a long time now. Been awesome on the old Linux player. But now we are wanting to use the new widgets (video folder and image folder). Which only works with chrome and not chromium. I see the new player script is bundled with chrome now. So I thought I would give it a try. After script runs and installs everything then asks at the end would you like to start player with your OS. Select yes. Then reboot to find player does not auto start.

Anyone out there get this issue with any other Linux Distro. Or know how to manual auto start the player?

NOTE: I do though get two detached screen sessions that run Riseplayer and Raisecache but no chrome or player starts on visible monitor.

Hi Mark,

I'm not really certain what would cause this. I can't speak to a debian install. I'll get our local Linux guru to take a look at this and see if he can point something out to make sure Rise Player auto-launches.

Mark,

Can you change into the ~/rvplayer/chrome-linux directory and run the following command?
./chrome

Please copy/paste any console output if the browser doesn't start.

Thanks,

Matthew

Hey Matthew

The output i get for this is

[14973:14973:0924/090000:FATAL:setuid_sandbox_host.cc(158)] The SUID sandbox helper binary was found, but is not configured correctly. Rather than run without sandboxing I'm aborting now. You need to make sure that /home/signage/rvplayer/chrome-linux/chrome-sandbox is owned by root and has mode 4755.

User I am using is called signage
Never ran the command as root. Also did the whole "chown -R signage.signage /home/signage"

Hello

Thank you so much for the guide to find the error.

After looking into this I have got it working.

sudo chown root:$USERNAME /home/$USERNAME/rvplayer/chrome/chrome-sandbox
sudo chmod 4755 /home/$USERNAME/rvplayer/chrome-linux/chrome-sandbox

Hey Blake

Thanks again for all the work getting a new Linux script up. Going to make my life so much easier upgrading all of our players in use at the moment.
