Remove little black rectangle on screen - raspberry pi

To rid yourself of the annoying little black rectangle do the following, its only a work around but it does work.

Create a script, mine starts my kiosk as well so is called /home/pi/

this script should look like:
startx –help
while true; do chromium –kiosk –incognito –enable-plugins http://your web addresshere.html;sleep 180s;done

The 2nd line is my kiosk – you probably wont need it but I put it there anyway.

Then add the following line

to the file:


Reboot and watch the splash screen followed by a brief black flash and then your screenly, kiosk, or whatever your running without the black rectangle.
