Lighdm schwarzer Hintergrundbild

Habe das Problem ich möchte bei Lightdm den Hintergrund ändern. Sobalt ich in die Konfigurations Datei geh und es umändere nimmt er mir das nicht an bei dem befehl

lightdm --test-mode –debug zeigt er mir nur schwarz Hintergrund an

und beim lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings kom ich auch nicht zum gewünschten ziel.

Meine ansätze waren schon das es vl ein Problem mit Kernel ich nutze aktuell 5.10.90 lts oda mit lightdm selber ist.

Hey @patrick1 !

Das ist ganz einfach.
Die Bilder dürfen nicht in deinem Home Ordner sein sondern dort wo Lightdm Zugriffsrechte hat.
Z.B. /usr/share/backgrounds

das ist das problem das bild liegt in user/share/backgrounds und es ist ein jpg

und du benutzt lightdm-gtk-greeter ?

ja

jpg sollte kein problem sein, kann eigentlich nur an Zugriffsrechten liegen oder dem genutzen Ordner.
Sonst versuche doch mal /usr/share/endeavouros/backgrounds/ als ordner zu nehmen

den ordner hab ich nicht

Hm sehr alte Installation ?

Wie sind den die Dateirechte bei der Bilddatei?

nein das System heute installiret und online gemacht

lightdm was das angeht schein ich alle Pakete zu haben

endeavouros-theming fehlt aber und du hast 2 lightdm greeter installiert.
slick und gtk greeter.
Default wäre nur slick was auch in der /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf eingestellt ist.

Zeige die doch mal:

also musst du den Hintergrund in der passenden config anpassen :wink:
sudo nano /etc/lightdm/slick-greeter.conf

[Greeter]

background=/usr/share/backgrounds/Endeavouros.jpg
+++

oder das passende gui tool installieren:
yay -S lightdm-settings
Das muss übers terminal gestartet werden, um es als root aus führen zu können:
sudo lightdm-settings

sieht dann so aus:

sudo nano /etc/lightdm/slick-greeter.conf anscheind hab ich die datei nicht hab mir zwa das paket jetz geholt aber ich schein es nicht drin zu haben

ok scheint gelöst zu sein aber warum kann ich es nicht über die konfigurations datei machen

Die Datei ist nicht im packet und wird erst angelegt wenn du lightdm-settings benutzt.
Aber da du dfas Paket endeavouros-theming nicht has, eventuell beim installieren abgewählt?
Fehlen Hintergründe und Logo Dateien… daher wars auch schwarz bei dir.

und warum hat es dann lightdm-settings gändert bzw wie weil ich dachte imma man brauch nur die datei umschreiben und es wirt übernommen

also:
du hast wahrscheinlich die configuration von lightdm-gtk-greeter editiert, da aber in der /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf der lightdm-slick-greeter eingestellt ist wird dieser verwendet.

Die Konfiguration fpr den aktivierten greeter hattest du ja garnicht, hättest die aber auch von Hand einfügen können, z.b. indem du sie aus dem Netzt kopierst oder ganz von hand schreibst,
Beim starten von lightdm-settings wird die Konfigurationsdatei erstellt.

Trotzdem seltsam das du die slick-greeter.conf datei nicht hast… sollte automatisch installiert werden wenn lightdm installiert wird.
