Hide console


This command tells the console to hide itself after 1 minute of inactivity. This means the console will be again visible when needed by just pressing a key:

$ setterm -blank 1

You’ll need to write this command in your ‘~/.bashrc’ file to work at startup:

$ sudo nano ~/.bashrc

Put the command at the bottom:

setterm -blank 1

Use ‘-blank force’ to hide the console immediately, and force it to stay blank. It won’t even show when you press a button:

$ setterm -blank force

Can also be set in /home/pi/.bashrc to run when you enter bash console.
