Re: Login screen and wallpaper

With the instructions on http://smashingweb.ge6.org/change-th...-login-screen/ I was able to change the login wallpaper. You will have to start with a terminal screen and do

Code:
$ su -
Then continue with the instructions on that site, ignoring error messages, you should see your new background (like good old /usr/share/themes/Adwaita/backgrounds/stripes.jpg for instance) on next boot.

FWIW, there is a little application , gdm3setup, that will do this as well
