Custom splash screen on RPI Zero W

Tue Apr 16, 2019 9:37 am


I have an RPI Zero W and Raspbian GNU/Linux 9.4 (stretch) with desktop.

I am trying to:
- Remove all the boot messages and Raspberry logos
- Show a custom splash screen
- Remove desktop
- Run my own java GUI application at start.

I have done:

- Remove rainbow screen:
sudo nano /boot/config.txt
disable splash=1

- Remove boot messages and Raspberry logos:
sudo nano /boot/cmdline.txt

console=tty3 splash quiet plymouth.ignore-serial-consoles logo.nologo vt.global_cursor_default=0 loglevel=0

- Show a custom splash screen
sudo cp ~/mysplash.png /usr/share/plymouth/themes/pix/splash.png

- Remove desktop and Run my own java GUI application at start
sudo nano /etc/xdg/lxsession/LXDE-pi/autostart

#@lxpanel --profile LXDE-pi
#@pcmanfm --desktop --profile LXDE-pi
#@xsscreensaver -no-splash
@sh /home/pi/Consola/

With that configuration I accomplish all I want except for the custom boot splash screen. Sometimes appears my custom splash screen and sometimes appear three dots. Why the difference?

There is a better way to do it?

Thanks in advance
