    Hi nice article but i think changing the login background image results in slowing of login and even starting up of Ubuntu machine

    I tried this but now the login screen collapsed totally. images are displaying in waves. username and password field design collapsed. I tried to reset with old code and restarted the system. but noting worked out. How to resolve that now.? anyone faced the same issue here…!!!

    Worked fine for POP_OS! I edited /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme/pop.css

    I created a script to automate this process of changing your gdm login screen background. Instructions on installation and usage can be found in

    Doesn’t work on the latest releases of Gnome and GDM 🙁

    If I have two or three screens how can I show the image in each screen instead of extending the same image through all screens

    dude , it’s not changing even saying “it changed successfully”.

    There is something wrong.

    This actually works on POP_OS! 19.10 but Tony’s instructions do not. Thanks!
