    Great program that I use to bring uniformity to the log-in screen and my desktop. Should be part of the default Ubuntu installation.

    Doesn’t work for me. The image I pick gets reset to an empty file.jpg in my user settings. Now I have a black login screen, not very cool

    Same here. How can this bug be fixed?

    I believe that this program does not work if the Home folder is encrypted, maybe that’s the problem

    Tried to download your program, but I keep getting the message
    “Unable to locate package simple-lightdm-manager”

    And the repository does show up in my sources list.

    I even tried rebooting, the familiar Windows cure-all, but I still get the same message.

    I had found a workaround for the drawback of this program with ecryptfs, whilst not using the program, first, you have to open up a gksudo session of Nautilus to copy the image to a program OUTSIDE of the home folder, such as /usr/share/backgrounds , the you have to edit the lightdm config file to point to the file you just copied/moved, I’m not gonna explain it when OMG! Ubuntu explains it better here: just remember to point it to the image file you added like i said, and you can’t just open a gksudo session of gedit from within the gksudo session of nautilus, doesn’t work like that.

    that Windows cure-all doesn’t usually work outside windows, so if you do that, don’t usually expect it to work. just a tip.

    You most likely need to update your repository after you add the ppa.

    So try “sudo apt-get update”, then run the last two commands.
