Lightdm background/theme fix for Miyo-XTRA 2018

Another desktop-base package came through today, and this time, it changed the login screen of Miyo (must be the one fsmithred had mentioned in another thread).

Again, as with the fix for the grub screen, this isn't needed and is completely voluntary...if you would prefer to use the new login screen with the Devuan Dark Purpy background and light theme, then please do so. smile

For anyone who would like the MiyoLinux background and dark theme back, here's all you need to do...

Step 1:  Open your terminal, and enter the following command (substitute leafpad with your text editor if you're using a different one)...

sudo leafpad /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf

When the file opens, scroll down to the bottom to line #47 (if you have line numbers on), and you will see...

[greeter]

The items below [greeter] are what we will change (lines 48-61). Just remove everything underneath [greeter], because we're going to replace it anyway.

STEP 2:  Copy and paste the following underneath [greeter]...

background=/usr/share/miyolinux/miyolinux-lightdm.png
theme-name=Adwaita-dark
icon-theme-name=Faba-Mono
font-name=Ubuntu
xft-antialias=true
xft-dpi=96
xft-hintstyle=slight
xft-rgba=rgb
show-indicators=~language;~session;~power
show-clock=true
clock-format=%A ~ %l:%M %P
#keyboard=
#position=
#screensaver-timeout=

So, that portion of the file should now look like this...

[greeter]
background=/usr/share/miyolinux/miyolinux-lightdm.png
theme-name=Adwaita-dark
icon-theme-name=Faba-Mono
font-name=Ubuntu
xft-antialias=true
xft-dpi=96
xft-hintstyle=slight
xft-rgba=rgb
show-indicators=~language;~session;~power
show-clock=true
clock-format=%A ~ %l:%M %P
#keyboard=
#position=
#screensaver-timeout=

STEP 3:  Save and close the file.

The next time you log out/in, you'll have the MiyoLinux background and dark theme again. smile

Whew...I'm thinkin' of locking desktop-base for awhile! LOLOLOL!!! tongue


I have been Devuanated, and my practice in the art of Devuanism shall continue until my Devuanization is complete. Until then, I will strive to continue in my understanding of Devuanchology, Devuanprocity, and Devuanivity.

Veni, vidi, vici vdevuaned. I came, I saw, I Devuaned. wink
