what config file does your login use when inside of Budgie

Fri Jan 12, 2018 7:11 pm

you have a selection called 'settings' in Budgie to change the login image, it is very limited to only allowing whatever image is in ones own Pictures dir. I want to set it up system wide so I put the image in a directory under /usr/local/share/images. But I am having problems now figuring out what conf fig file needs to be edited to get it to show, every thing I found on net about Solus and setting that image is not working. all I need to know is what conf to change. yes? so I can change it.

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf
changed it in there and nothing, no changes took place.
so I found this then did it,

Code: Select all

sudo mkdir -p /etc/lightdm
echo "[Greeter]" | sudo tee -a /etc/lightdm/slick-greeter.conf
echo "background=/path/to/your/background.png" | sudo tee -a /etc/lightdm/slick-greeter.conf
chmod o+r /path/to/your/background.png
Left me with a black login screen

got rid of that last part and it is now stuck on black.

I am using Window Manager BTW, I just went into Budgie to see if I could easily change the login image from there using its settings GUI. That is when I discovered the answer to that is, no.

adding the image to
does not work either, as it does not even show up in the settings, desktop background change the images selections. it has the same privileges as the other files as well.
