The touch display plugin does not set or alter the screen resolution.

Out of interest:
What is the brand and model of your screen?
What is the resolution you get?

Sorry, but what do you mean with "so i went back"?

I still don't understand why you have to login every time. Please try to describe what happens when you login.

Also please give some information if you see error messages either when Volumio starts or when you enable the touch display plugin. If there should be error messages: What do they tell?

Aside from that, if you had installed version 1.1.0 of the touch display plugin and updated to version 1.1.2, please follow these steps:

1. Disable the touch display plugin if it should be enabled.
2. If you haven't done so already enable SSH access to Volumio as described here:https://volumio.github.io/docs/User_Manual/SSH.html
3. Connect to Volumio via SSH.
4. Execute
Code: Select all
sudo rm -r /data/volumiokiosk
5. Reboot.
6. (Re)enable the touch display plugin.

You may then reboot once again to check if the "login problem" is solved.

P.S. What is the brand and model of your display? Are you using the original Raspberry Foundation 7" touch display?

Hi fpkuijpe,
I would like to help you further, but please provide some more information:

1. What is the brand and the model of your display and how is it connected?

2. Did you change the standard user (volumio) and/or the password?

3. When you boot Volumio: Do you only get to the command line from where you login? If so, please describe what happens after you login. Does the UI show up on your display after that? Maybe you could additionally post some screenshots showing what's going on.

4. After logging in please run
Code: Select all
systemctl status volumio-kiosk
and post the output.

5. Further more it could be helpful if you execute
Code: Select all
sudo journalctl -f
and post the output in the moment you enable the plugin.

6. Also please give some information if you see error messages either when Volumio starts or when you enable the touch display plugin. If there should be error messages: What do they tell?
