Description:

Background settings dialog for XSplash and the login screen (GDM), providing easy changing of the background image and an optional daemon, that keeps xsplash and gdm background consistent with the desktop wallpaper. Video demo: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WPlbE_sUyVg
Depends on: xsplash imagemagick python-gconf python-gtk2 python-gksu2 python-gobject


INSTALL:

  • PPA repository (recommended): ppa:meerkat/stable -> Instructions: https://launchpad.net/~meerkat/+archive/stable
  • DEB package: Download below, just double click

  • After successful installation you need to reboot once for the daemon to run. Open the configuration dialog through System -> Settings -> XSplash Wallpaper Settings or by running xsplash-wallpaper-settings --settings from terminal. Choose your custom background or activate "Use Desktop Background" to keep your XSplash background consistent with your desktop wallpaper.

    Old versions (1.3 and earlier): http://www.google.com/#q="wallpaper_daemon.py"



    CUSTOMIZE GDM:
    You want to use your gtk and icon theme for the login screen? Run xsplash-background-settings --gdm (Note that this only works for system wide installed themes)
    To restore the default ubuntu gdm themes run xsplash-background-settings --restore-gdm



    UPGRADE:
  • from version 1.6 and later: Just install new version.
  • from version 1.3 and earlier: Please follow the uninstall instructions below and install the new version afterwards.



  • UNINSTALL / RESTORE DEFAULT XSPLASH:

    Version 1.6 and later:
    1. Go to System -> Settings -> XSplash Background Settings and choose "Use default background" to restore default XSplash.
    2. Remove xsplash-background-settings through package manager.

    Version 1.3 and earlier:
    1. Remove wallpaper_daemon.py from the startup programs (gnome-session-properties).
    2. Extract your backup file. If you used the install routine this file is called backup.TIMESTAMP (where TIMESTAMP is dynamically generated number) and located at /usr/share/images/xsplash. To get the extraction path right use the following command (you may use the TAB key to complete backup. with the right timestamp number):
    tar -C / -xf /usr/share/images/xsplash/backup.TIMESTAMP
    3. Version 1.0 only:
    sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename /usr/share/images/xsplash/bg_2560x1600.jpg
    4. restart (dont change your desktop wallpaper before restarting!)



    KNOWN ISSUES:
  • I noticed that on some ubuntu derivatives (such as Linux Mint) the login screen uses a different background image than XSplash. To fix that simply run
    sudo -u gdm gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/gnome/background/picture_filename /usr/share/images/xsplash/bg_2560x1600.jpg
  • If you get the error message Quote:
    Failed to backup default background
    Change settings at your OWN RISK!
    and/or the xsplash background is not successfully change by the settings dialog you may be affected by a known issue with gksu (see the discussion started by zetty on Feb 1 2010). A temporary workaround is to either manually permit permanent user write access to the xsplash image folder: Quote:
    sudo chmod -R a+rw /usr/share/images/xsplash
    or start the settings dialog with sudo: Quote:
    sudo xsplash-background-settings --settings

    ./wallpaper_daemon.py --install
    does the backup and so on.

    ./wallpaper_daemon.py
    (without --install) applies the desktop background to xsplash, whenever you change it.

    Therefore you should run ./wallpaper_daemon.py --install once and add ./wallpaper_daemon.py to the startup programs.
    If you want to test the behavior without restarting just start ./wallpaper_daemon.py from terminal and change your desktop background. You may also test xsplash without restarting by running sudo xsplash

    Hope that helps.

    fantastic, this solved =)

    one more think, there is a small bug with the space in the name of image.

    take a look:

    Quote:
    /home/m7p/Immagini/Wallpapers/A fly on the wall.....jpg
    convert: unable to open image `/home/m7p/Immagini/Wallpapers/A': No such file or directory @ blob.c/OpenBlob/2439.

     GDM problem

     
     by vlad003 on: Nov 8 2009
     
    Score 50%

    Hi,

    I used your command to change the GDM login theme but I have a problem.

    1) The colors do not change from the default even if I do change the colors in the settings.

    2) Since changing the theme, I get a gnome-at-properties icon in my Notification Area. I can't figure out a way to get rid of it. If I click on it, my GDM theme changes to Redmond. If I open an Appearances dialog, some things change back to normal theme but some stay unchanged.

    What I've figured out is if I run the command again, a new icon appears in Notification area. If I kill the process with description: "/bin/dbus-daemon --fork --print-pid 5 --print-address 7 --session" it goes away. Unfortunately there is no other process like that so I'm still stuck with the original icon.

    Any ideas?

    Thanks in advance.

    i can confirm this strange bug. i have no idea how to get rid of the gnome-at-properties icon though.

    i have replaced the description above with a direct method where this bug does not appear.

    just found a corresponding bug report (https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gnome-control-center/+bug/459747) and a solution to get rid of the icon:
    System -> Preferences -> Keyboard -> Accessibility
    uncheck "Accessibility features can be toggled with keyboard shortcuts"

    Ill try my best...
    I assume you downloaded the file in a folder called Downloads in your Home folder (thats default behavior of firefox in ubuntu karmic).


    sudo apt-get install imagemagick

    cd ~/Downloads

    tar -xf 114984-wallpaper_daemon_1.2.tar.gz

    mkdir ~/.scripts

    mv wallpaper_daemon.py ~/.scripts

    cd ~/.scripts

    chmod +x wallpaper_daemon.py

    ./wallpaper_daemon.py --install

    gnome-session-properties

    The last command opens a dialog, click on "Add", fill in a name like "xsplash wallpaper daemon" and as Command:
    ~/.scripts/wallpaper_daemon.py
    Confirm with "Add" and "Close" the "Startup Applications Preferences".

    Finally change your desktop background as you normally do and restart ubuntu to see the effect.

    good luck!
