To Prevent the Splash Screen from Displaying When You Change Your Desktop Environment in Raspberry Pi

Asked 2 months ago, Updated 2 months ago, 6 views

Installing the current latest version of Raspbian will boot to a desktop environment called PIXEL.I wanted to change this to Xfce4.

# update-alternates --config x-window-manager

In , select /usr/bin/xfwm4,

# update-alternates --config x-session-manager

In , you selected /usr/bin/startxfce4.

Now that Xfce4 has been launched, the PIXEL splash screen appears during startup.

Enter a description of the image here

Welcome to PIXEL, but Xfce4 is actually starting.

How can I prevent this splash screen from appearing?

The Raspbian startup configuration file /boot/cmdline.txt says splash and you were able to hide the splash screen by deleting it.

Other related information was found when I searched "cmdline.txt splash" etc.
