I'm trying to set a specific resolution (1920x1200) so the resolution is persistent and applied for the login screen / greeter. In searching the forums, it seems that I should be making updates to lightdm.conf. However, it looks like the lightdm configuration files moved recently in 14.04.
Is there any way I can use LightDM themed with the Unity greeter with a systemd-based init? The lightdm-unity-greeter package available in the AUR depends upon lightdm-ubuntu, which conflicts with lightdm. lightdm provides a systemd unit, but lightdm-ubuntu does not. Is there another way to have lightdm-ubuntu start on boot even though it doesn't have systemd support?P.S.
Seen similar question many times on AskUbuntu, but most answers was bout unity-helpers or gconf ...canonical... etc, so this actually doesn't seem to work.
The problem is that I decided to move to lightdm from gdm.
About changing lightdm unity greeter background image, most answers are to change /usr/share/glib2.0/schemas/com.canonical.unity-greeter.gschema.xml. Is there any way to change the default wallpaper in lightdm unity greeter without changing the file? Like an override file.
I'm making a debian package that would apply our own artwork after installing.
I have a laptop with Ubuntu 14.04 LTS (clean install, do not like updates) and I installed xubuntu-desktop just to try it.
The problem is that I really do not like it changed my original lightdm configuration to xubuntu lightdm configuration. I want the original ubuntu unity lightdm.
Does anyone know if there is a way to change the font in the Ubuntu 12.04 login screen (lightDM)? I've tried manually creating a /etc/lightdm/unity-greeter.conf file and manually entering another font instead of Ubuntu there, but that appears to do nothing. Is there a way to change this?
Unity-greeter crashes, and constantly respawns, not letting me in. So, I configured auto login but that won't start anything except Unity session. I changed the lightdm.conf file to run Xubuntu but Unity still shows up. If I create a new user, it will start in Xubuntu just fine.
