First post and I feel I am getting very close to solving it but....
I am adding OctoPi + Touch screen to my setup with OctoDash as touch ui. All fresh install as of today.
I have managed to suppress almost all boot message, splashes etc and added my own Prusa Splash.
But just before the Splash screen is removed and OctoDash starts to take over I still see a bit of terminal for like 1 or 2 secs and it shows the OctoPrint information that is on the terminal just before a login prompt would be displayed. I guess it's coming from OctoPrint starting up but I would love to suppress it or at least move it off the main screen
I checked but it's not from the welcome script, it's from octoprint.service starting as the output comes before a terminal login happens and that is when welcome is triggered via bashrc. I have already commented that one out there.
I solved the Xserver output which is not octodash but rather standard Xorg when xinit is called again .bashrc as part of enabling auto login. I have put a >/dev/null 2>&1
So now all I have left is how to fully silence octoprint.service systemctl ....ideas?
Here's what I did to in .bashrc for the autologin user:
# FF> 08 Aug 2021, 22:55 SGT : stop the welcome message and have silent bash login using .hushprofile
# Skipping OctoPrint welcome script
if [ -z "$SSH_CLIENT" ] || [ -z "$SSH_TTY" ]; then
# FF> 09 Aug 2021, 17:29 SGT : hide the xinit message from terminal screen
# xinit -- -nocursor
xinit -- -nocursor >/dev/null 2>&1
That takes care of OctoPrint welcome message (commented out) after login. This is easy to test as when one SSH's into the Pi now with same user no messages are shown. The xinit line is for getting rid of the Xorg terminal information, thought that be useful to share here.
I ran your grep command in /etc and guess what? It found a hit on rc.local which has this content init. So I have commented that stuff out and now alls is silent
Thanks for your help @planetar in figuring this out!
