Login settings: using encrypted background image

Asked by Sebastian Herbort on 2012-02-02

Hi all!

First of all I would like to say THANKS! for this great tool.

Using the current background as login image is very usefull to me. But after clicking this button I was wondering that the login screen was quite black. By the way, I've stored my wallpaper images in ~/Pictures/Wallpapers. So the login manager has tried to use an image, that has been stored in an encrypted directory. :-/

Is it possible to add a function, that checks, wether the source directory has been encrypted or not?

Kind regards,
Sebastian.

Hi,

Could you give me the name of your encrypted solution? So that I can try to detect and disable the background setting for it.

Hi,

It seems, that I've forgotten it. Sorry!
I'm using ecryptfs because it's part of the setup routine, when you're installing a fresh Ubuntu.

Hi,

This feature will be removed since Ubuntu 12.04 will read the user setting to load the background, so you don't need to set it any more.

Thanks Ding Zhou, that solved my question.
