View Full Version : [SOLVED] Change background in GDM?

Does anybody know how to change that butt ugly background in GDM?
Sorry, but those vertical stripes have to go since they give me a headache. :(
I have managed to get rid of them in Gnome, but I haven't figured out where the setting is to change it in GDM yet.

Dunno. Let's go see what we can find.

Just a guess, but ... try -- /usr/share/backgrounds/lovelock/default-stripes/wide/lovelock.png
There are three possible directories there. The wide screen version is the default here, I think.
Ayup. That's it. I couldn't find a setting, but a brute force file change and rename did the trick. Stripes all gone bye-bye. <..:p..>

:D I resorted to the very same approach! :p
I couldn't find where to change the setting for GDM, so I just copied the background I wanted over what it was set to use.
no more headache from those wild stripes. LOL
where is the "solved by brute force" button in here? :p
