• lightdm-webkit2-greeter backgrounds


    Hello,

    I have installed lightdm-webkit2-greeter and everything is also working fine.
    There is the possibility to change the backgroundimage in the top right corner.
    In the config from lightdm-webkit2-greeter is the following:

    background_images = /usr/share/backgrounds
    

    In this folder there are two additional folders, gnome and xfce. I have added my own wallpaper to these directories. The idea is then, to select it over the greeter page as described above. But my wallpapers are not there only the standard wants which can be found in the xfce and gnome folders.

    My wallpaper is called schlern_new.jpg and schlern.jpg, both in the two folders gnome and xfce.

    Hopefully, someone of you have an idea.

    Thanks in advance and best regards,

  • if you are using antergos theme you will see:

    /etc/lightdm/lightdm-webkit2-greeter.conf
    ....
    [branding]
    background_images = /usr/share/antergos/wallpapers
    ...
    

    So walls need to be there under: /usr/share/antergos/wallpapers
    But take care if you add new ones, they need to fit to the same scaling/size/format

  • Hello joekamprad,

    thanks for the reply, but as already wrote above the paramter in my lightdm-webkit2-greeter.conf is:

    background_images = /usr/share/backgrounds
    

    Best regards,

  • Yes but your wallpapers are under subfolders of the path you are giving📤
    And it looks like lightdm is not diving.

  • Hello,

    When the greeter is started, there are wallpapers given, the standard ones. So, I assume it is diving. But why my added wallpaper is not there for selection? That is the question. Maybe, is it possible to add not a directory where the wallpapers are stored is it also possible to give a parameter with one image? Something like:

    background_image = /usr/share/backgrounds/picture.jpg
    

    Best regards,

  • @herrmie i can do this by adding the wanted wallpaper directly under /usr/share/backgrounds/

    /usr/share/backgrounds/wallpaper.jpg

    and have

    background_image = /usr/share/backgrounds
    

    in lightdm-webkit2-greeter.conf

  • Hello,

    now it is working, but please dont ask me why.
    I have moved all wallpapers from /usr/share/backgrounds/xfce to not see them in the greeter background options. And only copied my own wallpaper to /usr/share/backgrounds and now I only see this. Also in the background options from the greeter top right corner.
    But nevertheless it is working, dont know why, but it works. Maybe it is not diving is there is a jpg in /usr/share/backgrouds. If no image is there go deeper.

    But anyway, thanks a lot for your help.

    Best regards,
    herrmie

  • Hello joekamprad,

    in my config, it is named …_images. So, the greeter is maybe searching for wallpapers in the folder and if there is one, it takes all. Otherwise it will go deeper in the folder structure.

    Nevertheless, it is working and that is great.

    Thanks a lot for your help.
