Custom login splash screen ? (SOLVED)

I would like to use a custom login screen instead of the four offered in Session and Startup.

Is that possible, or are the four hard-coded in the startup prog ?

Re: Custom login splash screen ? (SOLVED)

I believe OP is referring to the xfce4-session splash screens.

The three (simple, balou, mice) are hard coded, but "Simple" is configurable with respect to font, background/text colors and background image. Click on the configure button to change those properties.

You can also add more theme options to the balou splash theme using the balou-install-theme script. For example:

  1. create a new directory to work with:

    mkdir MyTheme
  2. To make things easier, copy over the default balou configuration files:

    cp -rv /usr/share/themes/Default/balou MyTheme
  3. Edit the MyTheme/balou/themerc file to suit (make sure to change the name so that it is easy to identify)

  4. Optionally, change the logo.png file to a file of your choice (name the file logo or change the name in the themerc file)

  5. Compress the directory:

    tar czvf MyTheme.tar.gz MyTheme
  6. Install the theme:

    /usr/lib/xfce4/session/balou-install-theme MyTheme.tar.gz ~/.themes
  7. Go to to the Balou splash screen configuration properties and select your new splash theme
