Re: The autostart file

I found the solution. It wasn't a PATH issue after all, as hinted at by the issue not appearing when the . desktop is launched manually instead of automatically as part of the boot sequence. I am using the Geomerative library in Processing , which loads images for GUI buttons which weren't showing u...

Re: Custom Splash Screen

Did you ever resolve this? I have the same issue, and am not making any progress, despite many hours trying many recommendations. I cannot disable the rainbow screen, nor remove the Raspberry Pi restore screen, and my custom splash screen displays for just a split second. I'd like it to last longer ...
