Change the shut down screen
« on: December 31, 2008, 10:18:39 PM »
The current shut down screen is at /share/pixmaps/LogOut_Paper.bmp just save over it with another image

I havent found the startup screen or the config file that uses these images but you might be able to just save a new img in /usr/share/pixmaps/LogOut_Paper.bmp

I don't know where the startup screen is either, but (on the CnM model at least) there is a uImage.png file distributed with each update, so as to change the version number in the corner.  If you edit this file before your next rebuild -- voilà, custom startup screen.

If you want to hunt for .bmp files go to the command line using XTERM and type:

find . -name \*.bmp | more

In fact there are only two .bmp files but there are thousands of .png ones! I couldn't be bothered looking through them all so if you want to have a scan use:

find . -name \*.png | more

Use the space bar to scroll.
         
Enjoy!

I found the same image at /share/pixmaps/LogOut_Paper.bmp but could not list the folder contents within the shell (xterm or even the CTRL-ALT-F3 as root option) = Always got error 'Segmentation Fault'.  I used the web browser and got the the image that way.

I then right clicked the image, save as and saved it to USB.  Once I edited the image in Adobe Fireworks, I saved it back to USB and then found that since I could not list the folder in the shell I would have to use some method to send the file there.  To do so I used the shell and typed:

cp /USB/USB_1/LogOut_Paper.bmp /share/pixmaps

This took the file from the USB drive and copied it to the appropriate place in the Laptop.  Works a treat.  I am also looking for the start up image but assume that it is well hidden.  In order to try and find it I used the find command and sent it to a file to look at when I have the time.

find > /USB/USB_1/allfiles.txt

I will report back if it is editable.

It looks like the startup screen is part of the uboot thing - some sort of kernel update image that launches from the sd card only.  In order to change the image you would need to understand how to make a uboot or at least edit it so it only changed the image.  The image itself is probably (but I know know for sure) stored in the eprom flash somewhere and not editable by normal means.  A bit like the post image on most PCs the bios can be flashed and this is when the image is changed, only at these special flash/upgrade times.

Anyone looked at uboot images?  I tried the ingenics website where the processor is made and they offer lots of cross-compiler stuff and uboot stuff for the processor but the docs are in chinese and im not that smart.  :-(

Actually,

 It's in the uImage/kernel .

There's a thread somewhere on the Hyves trendtac board, or was it here?
I don't remember now, but it was about dismantling the kernel, changing the image with your custom one & and putting it back together, then when you flash it to the machine, the boot picture will change.


That's why the newer kernels from CnM say CnM book @ boot, Elonex says Elonex..  etc

The startup image is a PPM bitmap file that is in the kernel itself.  You have to re-compile the kernel to get a new one to be displayed.
