Disable "Welcome to Raspberry Pi" setup wizard at system start

Fri Jan 18, 2019 8:24 am

Hello,
Is it possible the "Welcome to Raspberry Pi" setup wizard window at the system start?

I configure raspberry through SSH, and I don't want to plug mouse & keyboard every time, when I deploy new rPI. I've to set all settings (locale, keyboard settings, wifi region etc.) through raspi-config, but the window is still displaying.

I've asked Simon to do this before. He wouldn't agree to it.

It's 100% illogical to ask for WiFi and ssh things when WiFi & ssh are already configured - but we have to live with it.

Found the solution.
I took this filewatcher script from super : https://superuser.com/a/959040
I rewrote it a bit to look like this : https://gist.github.com/jtommi/3dcd9781 ... 7f2063241d

With this filewatcher I found that when you press Done on the last step, it deletes a file.
That file is /etc/xdg/autostart/piwiz.desktop
So if you want to get rid of it :

Code: Select all

sudo rm /etc/xdg/autostart/piwiz.desktop
sudo reboot now
If you want to immediately kill it without reboot :

Code: Select all

sudo kill $(ps aux | grep '[p]iwiz' | awk '{print $2}')

Is there a way to manually launch this program at a later date in case you accidentally clicked it away?
Have you tried turning it off and on again? ;)

Hi,

I had the same problem, keeping this thing opening again at each start despite it's already configured is really frustrating. Why not just add a checkbox "do not show again" ?
Once checked, and clicked on "Cancel", a message saying "you can manually run this tool by typing sudo piwiz in a terminal." before closing the app.
