slick-greeter not showing xfce logo

I installed lightdm and the slick-greeter and it works really well; however the xfce logo is missing on the login portion.
I have installed lightdm-settings and it has all the options except the Logo making it somewhat of a pain to try and figure out everything
I looked at the slick-greeter.conf file and the option for the logo doesn't work.
Anyone have any idea how to get the logo part working as this is one sweet login window.

Re: slick-greeter not showing xfce logo

It looks like it puts all the badges in /usr/share/slick-reader/badges (ref: https://github.com/linuxmint/slick-gree … .vala#L109). Is there a file there called xfce.png or xfce.svg?

Sure is, xfce.svg.  Now the $64,000 question, "Why doesn't it show?" 
I sure hope the answer is simpler and that I just messed up.

Re: slick-greeter not showing xfce logo

What happens if you convert it to xfce.png? (maybe its an issue with the svg format and libraries)

Are there other badges in there that you could test (do you have another DE installed)?

If still no luck, maybe a bug report with the slick-greeter team is the best way to move forward.

Edit: I installed the greeter and had a closer look. I was able to get the badge to show up by adding:

logo=/usr/share/slick-greeter/badges/xfce.svg

...to /etc/lightdm/slick-greeter.conf.

I have to say this 1st and foremost;
"You are a freaking wizard.  A merlin of Xfce."
You seem to have an answer for any question that is posed.
Many thanks as I didn't know about the Badges.
Now if I can only get it to appear in the Logon Panel upper right-hand corner.
But, it is a perfect image and it shows in the lower left-hand corner.

Unfortunately, it doesn't look like its possible. Perhaps you could create an Issue report with the developer. There is this related issue, but not exactly what you are asking for.

Re: slick-greeter not showing xfce logo

Well I found the problem and the solution in one fell swoop.
It seems that if you have only 1 desktop there is no need to show icon, I'm guessing here as I added a PPA for the new Cinnamon and installed same.
I logged out and lo and behold the icon was there.  Clicking on it gave me the choices:
Cinnamon
Cinnamon Software Rendering
Xfce
Clicked on Cinnamon and it appears, to me at least, that they have changed something as I was running in
Software Rendering mode
where I had always been able to run Cinnamon before.
So since I have Timeshift installed I just did a restore.
No more Cinnamon, BUT, the icon is still there along with Cinnamon Icon.
Clicking on Cinnamon brings me back to login.
So something got triggered somewhere.
All's good now.
