How to change the login picture in Ubuntu 20.04


Today we are going to look at how to change the login picture in Ubuntu 20.04.

Please take note, that this will work only on Ubuntu 20.04 and your system will immediately reboot after running the last command so please close all other programs before running this command.

In the past, we change the configuration files to do it, but someone created this script,  you can read all about it in the link below.

So the first command will install a package that is required.  The last three commands will download the script,  make it executable and then we have to adept the last command to choose your preferred picture, as seen in the video, and then run it.  Enjoy!

Command Used:
1) sudo apt install libglib2.0-dev-bin
2) wget github.com/thiggy01/ubuntu-20.04-change-gdm-background/raw/master/ubuntu-20.04-change-gdm-background
3) chmod +x ubuntu-20.04-change-gdm-background
4) sudo ./ubuntu-20.04-change-gdm-background /path/to/image

Commands are based on this:
