Re: change background at login

In BL, you can easily find and edit the config for the login by using the menu under "System" -> "Login Settings".

Just find the file that is called lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf and edit the line that says background=something.

Re: change background at login

Like doxanthropos just told you, edit line 48 right after [greeter]. Change

#background=

to something like

background=/usr/share/backgrounds/whatever.jpg

Make sure to include full path to your image.

And please, please learn how to use code tags when posting!

Re: change background at login

There is also an "alternative" method for the specific login background image setting:
menu>System>Edit Debian Alternatives
and look for bl-login-background. You can hit the [+] button to set the path to some image as an alternative to /usr/share/images/bunsen/login/default.png

Re: change background at login

^Add to our default apps list? It would mean editing the menu too...

I'm all about GUI settings. Put it on the discussion list.
