If you want to utilize your reMarkables suspended screen for showing actual informations rather then just inform you that your rM is suspended right now, you can follow this little hack.. it worked for me and I’m happy with it.
First I made a template with the Informations I wanna see when the reMarkable goes to sleep.
In my case there is a calender template, a todo-list and free space for whatever I wanna draw or write there.
After copying the template to the reMarkable I added a new notebook and selected the new template for this notebook.
To use this Notebook as your suspended screen you have to find the “ID” it gets on the device.
Therfore go to
on the device and look for the last modified files and foldes. This is the ID of your new Notebook! In my case it is 7a1c7e63-1604-434f-9bf0-ee1c438b6fe0
You can use the cached pngs in the <ID>.cached folder of your new notebook (there is one for each page in the notebook 0.png, 1.png …) by generating a symbolic link to that file and name the link “suspended.png” in /usr/share/remarkable/ where the splashscreens of the device are stored.
ln -s /home/root/.local/share/remarkable/xochitl/<notebookID>.cache/<pagenumber>.png /usr/share/remarkable/suspended.png
You have to remove the suspended.png in /usr/share/remarkable/ first.
Now every time you change the content of the <pagenumber> page of the notbook your suspended screen will show the changes after your reMarkable goes to sleep.
Could look like this!
