Re: help creating custom lock screen?

Part of the problem, I think, is that Xfce desktop environment doesn't have a login manager or a screensaver. These are programs that are usually added by the distro to complete the user experience. Since no-one has replied to your thread here, you may be better suited asking this question over at the fedora forums (or the display manager and/or screensaver forums if they exist) on how to accomplish this.

This really isn't an Xfce issue, per se. Or at least, the expertise for that doesn't appear to exist here.

Re: help creating custom lock screen?

If it helps Fedora uses LightDM for the Xfce spin so you need to search for LIghtDM themes and guides.

BTW Fedora 23 is past EOL so you really should update to 24 or 25. There is some new Xfce applications in both those versions including the latest terminal and notifications so it is worth updating.

If you are using LightDM Gtk version, You can import lightdm-gtk-greeter.css to your themes /gtk-3.0/gtk.css. Here is a lightdm greeter color scheme that you can edit you color preference.

/* lightdm greeter color scheme */
@define-color lightdm_bg_color #e8e8e7;
@define-color lightdm_bg_color_a #ff3333;

A file /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf has background, theme, etc. settings.
