strange lightdm greeter background

Only a minor problem:

After changing from slim to lightdm the greeter backgrond is an xfce one. I don't know where it comes from, because

/etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

refers to

greeter-session=lightdm-gtk-greeter

and the

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

points to

background = /usr/share/images/desktop-base/greeter-wide-large.png

and that is no jumping fat rat.

Also the charset ist not the one in /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf .

So obviously another config file is used, but which?

Re: strange lightdm greeter background

I think it is configured in desktop-base as part of the default theme but you should be able to override it.

Re: strange lightdm greeter background

What is desktop-base?

Seems to be vice versa. The jumping fat rat replaces another previously loaded background within some hundred ms. Looks like blending.

Re: strange lightdm greeter background

desktop-base is a package where the desktop theme is configured.  Maybe you have an old configuration somewhere that is conflicting.

Where could "somewhere" be? It's an xfce-background.

Re: strange lightdm greeter background

desktop-base should be removed for smooth installation of your chosen bodykit
