Indigo Touch for RPi

Just wondering if anyone has a good solution for a kiosk-mode browser setup for running Indigo Touch on a Raspberry Pi?

I've been toying with either wall-mounting an Android tablet OR wall-mounting an RPi with the 10" touchscreen... i like the RPi screen because unlike the tablets, there's no branding / cameras / buttons etc - it's all touchscreen and can be remotely accessed.

Or has anyone built a standalone RPi Indigo Touch app?

Re: Indigo Touch for RPi

Hi!

I am in the process of doing just this - a raspberry pi "kiosk" using this method:

I came across this post whilst searching for a means of passing the authentication in the URL to avoid the need to manually entering the details at every start up. I am currently using the following URL to access my control page:

Any suggestions?

You can enable HTTP Basic authentication which will take the username and password from the URL...
