How can I change the login background?

Hi, everyone.
I’m just starting with fedora, and I would like to change the login background. Could you help me, please?

It is described here:

“1. Click Background to open the panel. The current selections for Background and Lock Screen are shown at the top.”
Those options don’t exist.

Yes. In the last GNOME version, this option is no more available.

Sorry, I didn’t cross check the information linked. I know I had used Settings before to set a different lock screen than user background. I guess they removed the option to be able to create the fancy login screen as it is today.

I did a quick search and found this extension:
(This is for the Unlock screen, not the login screen after you booted your machine)

From an end-user perspective, it seems weird that you need an extension for such basic setting…

Thanks, but I would like to change the login background.

For some stupid reason GDM makes this quite complicated.

There are instructions on the Arch Linux wiki you could try. I haven’t tested them myself.


go to login window option in menu

and also remember to place you wallpaper in the /usr/share/backgrounds folder otherwise it result in black background in login screen

Do you mean the login screen where you have the fedora logo on the bottom? If so:
gsettings set org.gnome.login-screen logo 'full-path-to-image'

default image is /usr/share/pixmaps/fedora-gdm-logo.png
