I am having difficulty getting my custom login screen installed. In system settings>login screen (LightDM), I select my custom wallpaper, enter my sudo password, however it does not install. My thought is to locate the folder where login screen (LightDM) is, and copy and paste my custom image. Will this solve my problem? Thanks! :scratch:

After upgrading from Kubuntu 11.10 to Kubuntu 12.04 some time ago my splash screen that is shown at boot, after selecting Kubuntu in the grub menu has changed to an ugly gritty grey picture.
The old one I was okay with but I'd like to change this one.
I've done quite some customizing already, changed the icon, splash(show after login) login and desktop themes, and all this can be done f
Before Ubuntu 12.04 LTS login screen I get this message and was wondering if this could be the cause for the login screen returning after entering my password and hitting enter; "The disk drive for /dev/mapper/cryptswap1 is not ready yet or not present."
When I login to my main user account it tries to load something but then after a time just comes back to the login screen.
I recently updated my laptop form ubuntu 12.04 LTS to 12.10 and when trying to login, it presents me with a black login screen immediately and asks for the login for the laptop. Whenever I try and give it the right login and password it says Login failed and tells me to login again. I have looked into solutions but they all seem to require being able to login from the screen that I get.
When I attempt to log into my account the screen goes black and then falls back to the login screen. I have pressed CTRL+ALT+F1 and was able to log in from there, however when I tried startx I got an error from x.org (I will try to write it down in a minute). The guest account works flawlessly so I am currently logged into that and created a temporary admin account through the settings panel.
I was using my computer last night with no issues, today when I tried to log in, instead of loading the desktop I was faced with the login screen.
I ensured my username was selected and typed my password.
