Here's how I setup a Raspberry Pi as a Dashboard NOC Display:

  1. Follow the instructions here to setup Zenoss: http://community.zenoss.org/docs/DOC-2504
  2. On the Pi, install midori web browser
  3. On the Pi, setup startx to boot into X
  4. Add midori -e Fullscreen -a http://localserver:8080/kiosk.html to ~/.config/lxsession/LXDE/autostart (might need to create this file and directory)
  5. change /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf:
xserver-command=X -s 0 dpms -nocursor

Reboot and it should work.

You may want to enable SSH for the Pi, or setup wireless, and tweak the layout of the dashboard for the kiosk user.
