Halfterm is upon us, I've got a RP4 for my daughter and want to change the splash screen for her, but I've never used Linux based systems before and so don't know where to start. I've already got the 1920 x 1080 png file I want to use

Cheers,

Pete

It's the boot up screen and what it has configured. You can customize the boot up screen as you mentioned by this link.

However, if you want just add a simple picture/image, check this link out which is telling you to install fbi package.

    Sadly didn't work for me, I now have a black screen until the desktop pops up. Seems to fall at the insserv command, says command not found – Peter James Feb 16 '20 at 23:12
  • @PeterJames Yes, you can run apt-get install insserv to fix this problem. – M. Rostami Feb 17 '20 at 7:49
