Yeah.  I was only pointing out that the method for changing the
background detailed on the hacktux.com site probably isn't the best
way to do that.  For one, that method changes the default background
for all users, not just for gdm.

A gui tool will come eventually.  But it's not really that hard to
tweak things by editing files.  Even when gdmsetup was around, I
preferred to edit the config file directly.  I guess I'm weird. ;)

For more details on what can be changed and where to change it, see:


(I'm not sure if that was posted in any of the recent threads or not.)

I haven't noticed it being much slower for me.  But I also don't spend
much time at the login screen.  If I see it more than once a week,
it's only if I'm trying to configure it.
