Change Login Background In Linux

login view on ubuntu is often called by GDM. in other words we will change the background of GDM. Essentially we will change the login background to use the software in linux that is Appearance. but Appearance is usually only used in desktop. to be in use also when we login, we must add Appearance at startup login. follow these steps.
  1. open terminal - typing "sudo su" - insert your root password.
  2. copy Appearance by typing "cp '/usr/share/applications/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop' '/usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow'"
  3. then logout your computer.
  4. at login would appear like the picture above.
  5. selections click close.
login background has been changed. follow these steps to eliminate the Appearance window at login.
  1. open terminal
  2. typing "sudo rm '/usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop'".
  3. insert your root password.

Asked if there is please leave a message on this post. thank you for your attention :)

need to know! 
GDM is the abbreviation of the GNOME display manager. Ubuntu uses the GNOME desktop. so in ubuntu using the GDM login screennya. whereas on linux kubuntu using KDM (the KDE display manager) because kubuntu uses KDE desktop. There are also new in version 11.10 ubuntu (oneiric ocelot). oneiric GDM does not use anymore because it has been replaced with LightDM which has a more elegant look.
