(backport of upstream changes)
adds a ExecStartPre to the plymouth-quit service to call
univention-welcome-screen to switch to the welcome screen and take a
snapshot to /tmp/.univention-welcome-screen.png
new systemd service to start univention-welcome-screen to show the
startxwithfirefox start univention-welcome-screen after setup in a mode,
where plymouth is restarted, a snapshot is taken and shown

Runs very well on KVM, only one slight hickup when displaying the file from /tmp, i guess that is ok.
Unfortunately nothing is displayed in a Virtualbox VM. A quick debug produced the attached logfile
I've disabled the welcome-screen installation for the 4.2 RC:
* Don't install univention-welcome-screen until Bug #43656 has been
First, the welcome-screen is shown. After 10 seconds, a black screen is shown, if I press ESC the message: A start job is running for Wait for Plymouth Boot Screen to Quit (2min 34s / no limit).
re enabled, i updated the systemd service to ignore the return code of the welcome screen (i think this is what blocked the startup)
It works with the latest changes.
UCS 4.2 has been released:
