As far as I know you can only change the Logo by editing the Kernel.

See in the 2nd post here: http://www.raspberrypi.org/phpBB3/viewt ... 47&p=88217

Pardon my stupidity, but I'm new to this and am interested in this topic.

How to recompile the kernel?

You need to recompile the entire kernel from scratch or can be done with few parameters?

Sorry for my bad English.

Thank you very much in advance.

Hi,
Is there a way to change the default raspberry logo on the desktop background, which appears after raspbian boots up? If anyone has been able to do it, please let me know. :)
Thanks & Regards,
Nachiketh

Just right click anywhere on the screen and select [Desktop Preferences] then select [Wallpaper]
A file manager will appear where you can select the path and filename of your background image.

The default raspberry pi logo file is deskop-background located in /etc/alternatives

Be sure in [wallpaper mode: fill with background color] is NOT selected.
Unless specified otherwise my response is based on the latest and fully updated Raspbian Buster w/ Desktop OS.
