I cannot change my login screen background to the desktop background in my elementary os which is based on ubuntu. I have decrypted my home folder according to this link:
and when I ran the command to check for encryption I got the following result-
~$ ls -A /home
[note: no .ecryptfs folder there!!]
~$ sudo blkid | grep swap
/dev/sda5: UUID="00ec9e13-4cfe-4f73-905a-fef05d73caa2" TYPE="swap"
I have come to understand that it means neither my home nor swap partition is encrypted. Still I cannot change my login screen wallpaper. I have tried the simple version given in the official website - i.e.,
1) Open “Files”
2) In plank, right click on “Files” and click “Open new window as admin”
3) Insert your password
4) On the new ADMIN window, go to: /usr/share/backgrounds
5) Paste your new image file there [/usr/share/backgrounds] (make sure it’s a JPEG file with, at least, 1920x1080 resolution)
6) Go to “System Settings”, “Desktop” and your new image file should be there
7) Click on it
8) Log out
This wasn't helpful so I went for the decryption as I read that it was due to the fact that my home folder is encrypted that I cannot change my login screen background to the wallpaper I downloaded. (I read that here:- http://elementaryos.org/answers/login-screen-isnt-the-wallpaper-i-want-i-also-want-to-delete-all-the-default-wallpapers-1 )
Please help me. I have installed elementaryos for a friend of mine recently and she doesn't have this problem. I could change my login screen before(have tried only once!) but cannot anymore. I always thought that the lock icon beside my partition in the gparted app is saying that its encrypted. The lock icon is there.
Please help me!!
