How To Change The Login Logo in Xubuntu

This one took a while to find, but I finally found it. Although I really like Ubuntu and Xubuntu, those bastards are getting trickier at hiding their logos and artwork to keep people from changing them. Not sure if it's on purpose or not, but that seems to be the case. In fact I decided to switch to Xubuntu for the base of bauer-Puntu 12.04 because vanilla Ubuntu is becaoming a logo whore! 

Anyway, Xubuntu is way easier to customize I am finding, but there is one logo that I had a problem getting rid of. That is, unti now. That is the little Xubuntu logo one will find at the Lightdm screen. Here is a screen shot of Bauer-Puntu 12.04's login screen where I've replaced the Xubuntu mouse logo with an Anonymous logo:

I tried looking for the image in all the usual places, /usr/share/pixmaps, /usr/share/unity-greeter etc, but none of the images I replaced were the ones being used. After some digging I finally figured out where that bastard was hiding! If you want to replace that login image browse to /usr/share/lightdm-gtk-greeter/gnome/scalable/apps and edit the computer.svg image. You will have to download and install a program called Inkscape for that though.

Once that image is edited, your login screen will be changed! tags:
