How to hide desktop or to show black screen so I can display images and videos by fbi and omxplayer without seeing desktop when next image is loaded?

  • Like Milliways said, dont use the desktop. you can disable automatic desktop starting in raspi-config->boot options. – scitronboy Apr 9 '18 at 14:52

fbi doesn't need a GUI so don't use one.

  • I need to run browser after fbi. I managed to blank the screen by opening black image by pqiv pqiv -f -i blank.png& – JPX Apr 13 '18 at 5:39
