I've just installed Ubuntu Server 18.04 LTS on my Intel NUC PC.
I'd like to make it a kiosk system, running only Chrome (for example).
How can I suppress / hide / disable all these messages printed to the monitor? I'd like to be a black screen from power on to (e.g.) Chrome.
I did follow Ubuntu Server 16.04.02 with Splash Screen and Kiosk mode and other tutorials like that. But there's something new in 18.04 (I think) that prevents me for getting things done.
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULTdidn't change anything, I had to edit
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUXinstead. Is it ok? (Note: of course I run
sudo update-grubafter each change)
GRUB_DEFAULT=0 GRUB_HIDDEN_TIMEOUT_QUIET=true GRUB_TIMEOUT=0 GRUB_DISTRIBUTOR=`lsb_release -i -s 2> /dev/null || echo Debian` GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT="" GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX="quiet" GRUB_TERMINAL=console
Welcome / MOTD / login messages
No way to avoid them! The closest I got was to remove
/etc/update-motd.d/ folder so I only saw something like:
Ubuntu 18.04 LTS nuc tty1 nuc login: kiosk (automatic login) Last login: [...] kiosk@nuc:~$
(Note: I disabled autorun script for actually seeing these messages, otherwise they're too fast to catch.)
Ideally all those outputs should disappear in order to boot just black, from power on to Chrome. And back of course: from Chrome to power off, but that's another story.
Which files should I take care of?
How can I reach a completely silent / quiet boot?
--- Update about GRUB ---
Done a fresh install of Ubuntu 18.04 Server LTS on another PC. I can confirm that the key
GRUB_CMDLINE_LINUX_DEFAULT doesn't do anything; instead I've to set
Tried to crawl the web but nothing found about that. Am I the only one who experienced this behaviour??
