Also, at the top, there's a thin black line below the icons that goes from one point to another of the screen, I don't know if you can see it with that background. Here's another screenshot:

Of course it's the newer, it's version 2.0.0. Mine displays a gear, but I use the bzr version, maybe try that one.

I'll look into the conf name, I must have overlooked sth when I made that patch.

Hello again, here's a screenshot of my lightdm:

Do you know if there's a way of converting the little grey square, used for alternating beetween desktop, into a gear?

I'm not saying that not having the white rectangle is something bad, it looks good without it. But I confused and though it was another version of pantheon-greeter, yours must be the newest, the one that freya uses.

I solved the first problem by changing the name of the configuration file from "lightdm-pantheon-greeter" to "pantheon-greeter"

However, the white rectangle still doesn't show up. I was specting this:

But, probably this is what I've got:

I'm not sure, but I believe the wallpaper path is stored in the lightdm user's gsettings, the conf file isn't working. However the default path in the conf path is the right one, so if you put your desired picture there, it will be displayed.

What white rectangle are you talking about? The one where you enter the password is on your screenshot.

Hello, nice work. Although I have a problem, everything works as it should, but it doesn't look at it should. Here's a screenshot:

Then, my two problems would be:
1) I don't know how to set up a wallpaper. I tried editing default-wallpaper in /etc/lightdm/lightdm-pantheon-greeter , but it didn't work

2) The white rectangle doesn't show up

Thank you.

I was unable to type and click anything. Editing /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf did the thing for me.

#on [LightDM]
#on [SeatDefaults]

Thanks to PedroHLC

Cannot get it to login, won't show username's, when I type in my password, the login box bounces and does nothing.

I've tried setting "gsettings set org.pantheon.desktop.greeter last-user 'myusername'" to ensure it is my user selected (as no usernames appear).
