How do I display the splash screen on Linux?

This might seem trivial. I am running MATLAB on an old office computer, running Linux Mint, that has MATLAB 2018 installed on it. The hardware is pretty old so it runs slow and takes forever to boot. On top of that it does not show any splash screen so for the first couple of times I thought it wasnt running, so I tried launching it again and again. I looked through the command line options:
- -display Xdisplay
I looked through the downloads directory and found the splash image in resources/coreui/matlab/splash.png. Is there a way I can tell matlab to launch with the splash screen. I tried the following but it didnt work because there seems to be no such -splash option. Is there a way this can be done?
matlab -splash resources/coreui/matlab/splash.png

Great question... I looked in the doc for startup options on Linux: https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/matlab_env/start-matlab-on-linux-platforms.html and some info on the startup file: https://www.mathworks.com/help/matlab/ref/matlablinux.html#buqncoe
Let me know if this gets you any closer.
