Moode logo at start-up
#1
Is it possible to put a Moode logo on the bootup screen in place of the 4 raspberries? I have searched and haven't found the location of those yet. I have muted the bootup scripts during startup. I am working on a setup for a vehicle and would like to have a Moode logo appear at startup until the normal user interface is displayed.

Thanks,
Gary

Thanks for the reply.....I did manage to hide them with no problem, but is there a way to replace the raspberry logo with a nice Moode logo?

Hi, Gary.

Sorry I was so cryptic in my first reply. I thought I had to run off to a meeting but it got cancelled Dodgy

Here's another link I came across which might help: Custom Splash Screen

It all looks a bit painful, but I hope you get it to work (and that you let us know what you did!).

Regards,
Kent

Thanks for the replies....nothing I tried gave me the results without other issues. I had all of the bootup messages muted, got rid of the 4 raspberries and had a nice Moode 4.1 png file loaded during startup, but I think because of some additional services being loaded for the splash screen, I was having issues with the normal moode desktop.

Tim, this might be a nice added feature for those using the 7" touch screen or local display....a moode logo during boot. In my headless Pi's, there is no advantage, but with a local display or the touch screen it would make things look good. My goal is to eventually use one of these in a vehicle and it will be booting and shutting down each time the car is started, so being able to eliminate the bootup stuff would be a plus.

Thanks,
Gary

Hi Gary,

Its on TODO list. I haven't looked at how to actually replace the default boot image, but I've been running the following in /boot/cmdline.txt on my Pi Touch and it supresses all the boot messages, pi logo and login prompt, and it shows a default three-dot boot image.


Code:
1. Edit /boot/cmdline.txt
2. Change:
console=tty1 to console=tty3
3. Add to end of line:
quiet splash loglevel=0 logo.nologo vt.global_cursor_default=0

Thanks Tim!

Yeah, I made the changes that you listed above.
Here is an informational site that got me very close to what I was trying to achieve.

I think the added services being loaded is where things went wrong, but it looked nice booting up. Once it did boot, the Moode desktop was there, but I had issues getting it to play a song.

Thanks again for all you do!
Gary

Hi Gary,

I think Stretch Lite already has everything needed to show a custom boot screen using Plymouth. What I'm not able to find is whats needed to create a custom Plymouth theme.

-Tim

Available params
pi@rp5:~ $ plymouth-set-default-theme --help
Plymouth theme chooser
usage: plymouth-set-default-theme { --list | --reset | <theme-name> [ --rebuild-initrd ] | --help }

  -h, --help             Show this help message
  -l, --list             Show available themes
  -r. --reset            Reset to default theme
  -R, --rebuild-initrd   Rebuild initrd (necessary after changing theme)
  <theme-name>           Name of new theme to use (see --list for available themes)

Directory contents
pi@rp5:~ $ ls /usr/share/plymouth/themes/
details  text  tribar

List available themes
pi@rp5:~ $ plymouth-set-default-theme -l
details
text
tribar

Print the default splash screen
pi@rp5:~ $ plymouth-set-default-theme
text

The cmds below display the default 'text' splash screen on my Pi Touch. If I change the theme <sudo plymouth-set-default-theme tribar> then it displays the 'tribar' splash screen.
pi@rp5:~ $ sudo plymouthd
pi@rp5:~ $ sudo plymouth --show-splash
pi@rp5:~ $
pi@rp5:~ $ sudo plymouth quit
pi@rp5:~ $

Hi, Tim.

Maybe the links found in this article will get you what you want: https://wiki.debian.org/plymouth
