LightDM GTK + Greeter can't change wallpaper

Hi Guys,

Today I tried to change LightDM wallpaper through LightDM GTK + Greeter settings but I wasn’t successful. I got a blackscreen even properly selecting lightdm wallpaper. I’m using EndeavourOS with i3wm plus endeavour standard configuration files.

is there any way to solve this problem?
I had no problems changing desktop background while using nitrogen.

lightdm needs wallpapers from a directory it can reads from… as it is not running in user-level…
like /usr/share/backgrounds

and you can check the configuration file for lightdm-gtk-greeter directly please post it here like so:
cat /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf | eos-sendlog

I’ve changed now

I think you may find that wallpaper for lightdm has be in /usr/share/pixmaps/. I don’t know why.

not that… but they must be readable by lightm what is not the case for users home directory… so walls should be somewhere under /usr/share
