I know the desktop background wallpaper will also be displayed on the login screen. What would I need to set the login wallpaper separate from the desktop wallpaper? Thanks
After logging in with 13.04 the Unity side bar appears and I can interact with my computer fine. However, my desktop wallpaper never appears, and I am left with the frozen login screen in place of my wallpaper. I cannot right click on my desktop to open the usual context menu that appears there. Trying to change my wallpaper in Appearance Settings doesn't seem to help. Any ideas?
i played with ubuntu tweak tool to change my login screen background but i could't use custom pictures.To use my pictures i changed permission to usr/share/backgrounds folder.
I search wikipedia and used every chmod command.At last i was able to copy my pictures to backgrounds folder.But now my login screen wallpaper does not appear.I tried setting default wallpaper but it also didn't work.Is ther
I am attempting to get to have all background-wallpapers to be the same and to be changed at the same time.
What I have done so far to achieve this is the following:
- the file in /usr/share/wallpapers/Elarun/contents/images/2560x1600.png (thats where the default wallpaper is) is used as Desktop-Background
=> only it is a wallpaper that I have named "2560x1600.png" and copied
Is there an app or some way to set the desktop wallpaper as viewable when only logged in, and to set another when logged out or locked? I've tried Ubuntu Tweak, but it only does the login wallpaper, and doesn't do the lock screen wallpaper.
Is there solution using a utility or folder shortcuts that would keep the active desktop wallpaper/background the same in KDE and Gnome/Unity. (Changing the background in one desktop would also change the other desktop's wallpaper)
I use both desktops because they both serve me better for different tasks, and i'd like to match LightDM login background for KDE as well.
Is there a way to make the background on the login screen span dual monitors rather than being mirrored? I know it's possible for the actual wallpaper when you're logged in but can't find an option for the login background.
Since I have upgraded from 12.10 to 13.04 (a few weeks ago), I have been having some annoying behaviour after login. First of all, the wallpaper does not come on, instead the login screen is continued to be displayed as a background, together with slow appearing top panel and Unity launcher. Secondly, the UI is unresponsive for a minute or so, while there is a lot of disk activity.
I am running 10.04.3 on VMWare workstation. I had the vm running just fine but after restarting it I only get the wallpaper and a cursor.
I can switch to terminal (ctrl alt f2) and logon. But I do not get a desktop. I tried to restart gdm (sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart) with no success.
Any help is appreciated! thanks!
EDIT: I noticed it's not the wallpaper but the login screen.
