    I checked dconf-editor and couldn't locate entries for login screen
    entries .pretty tricky to customise GNOME :-) keep those live iso and
    dvds handy just in case . You are correct everyone can feel free with
    mess with their own OS otherwise Linux wouldn't have been born from
    minix. You might have chosen another sub-forum because this is a
    official support forum


    Hi

    Code:
    gsettings list-keys org.gnome.login-screen

    You should of course mention all the pros, cons and assumed circumstances in your story. To avoid tthat people not havinbg the same situation as you do things detriment to their system.

    Unix/Linux is a multi-user system. That is the starting point. And you do have more then one user in your system, even if in practise there is only one that uses Gnome.

    (To see how many users you have, even if only one introduced ever by you:
    Code:
    wc -l /etc/passwd
    )

    And you will earlier or later run into trouble understanding things when you do not remember that it is a multi-user system because thatt has consequences, if yo like them or not.

    What I have done in the past is login as the user that the login screen
    runs as, typically "gdm". Then you can change settings such as the
    desktop background.

    This link takes me, I tried twice, to the main forum page:

    [CODE]

    Is that where you intended?
