question : How to splash screen

Dear All.

I use turnkeycore to build an MDT

Currently it have :

- openbox

- slim

- navit

Now there is an autologin user, and running well.

eachtime it's booted ... a user will autologined ... and auto run navit.

 

next , I want it to display a splashscrren ratherthan detailed boot process

How to do it ?

I tried with the plymouth way ... but it didn't work

sincerely

But google bought this link up: https://wiki.ubuntu.com/LucidLynx/ReleaseNotes#Changes_in_boot-time_outp... which suggests that you can change the setting in grub. I wonder if it's that simple?

Dear Jeremy

I really appreciate your response

 

Yep .. I tried that, but didn't work.

I have in my /etc/default/grub :

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=3
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="quite splash"
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""
GRUB_TERMINAL=console
GRUB_GFXMODE=640x480


I also tried about plymouth.
Here what I have in my /lib/plymouth/themes/sikat :
sikat-png-8-16.png 
sikat.plymouth
---start---
[Plymouth Theme]
Name=Sikat
Description=Wallpaper only
ModuleName=script
[script]
ImageDir=/lib/plymouth/themes/sikat
ScriptFile=/lib/plymouth/themes/sikat/sikat.script
---stop----

sikat.script
---start---
wallpaper_image = Image("sikat-png-8-16.png");
screen_width = Window.GetWidth();
screen_height = Window.GetHeight();
resized_wallpaper_image = wallpaper_image.Scale(screen_width,screen_height);
wallpaper_sprite = Sprite(resized_wallpaper_image);
wallpaper_sprite.SetZ(-100);
---stop----

I also did :
---start---
update-alternatives --install /lib/plymouth/themes/default.plymouth default.plymouth \
    /lib/plymouth/themes/sikat/sikat.plymouth 100
update-alternatives --config default.plymouth
update-initramfs -u
---stop----

Current result :
1. Detailed boot process still displayed. (Looks like the 'quite' command ignored)
2. After #1, my TKL display the png file, but it's looks like not centered. it's half to the left side

Sincerely

It's "quiet" not "quite". Try that and see how it goes.

I use Bodhi Linux (based on Ubuntu 10.04 - same as TKL) on my netbook and it uses an animated splash screen. Here's the start of my /etc/default/grub (the rest is commented out):

GRUB_DEFAULT=0
#GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT=0
GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true
GRUB_TIMEOUT=10
GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR="Bodhi Linux"
#GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian`
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="splash quiet  acpi_osi=\"Linux\""
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX=""

if you want any further details of my system I'm happy to oblige, but I don't really know a lot about splash screens/plymouth or any of that stuff, but more than happy to help wherever/however I can.

I found http://news.softpedia.com/news/How-to-Fix-the-Big-and-Ugly-Plymouth-Logo...

 

and it work like a charm

 

sincerely
