If you want to make your Ubuntu installation a little less purple and orange, but don’t see a solution that covers the change of log-in screen background picture change, try Simple Lightdm Manager. It is a tool that lets you turn the log-in screen into any image you have on your computer. To install, open a terminal and enter the following commands (adding repository, updating sources, installation):
sudo apt-add-repository ppa:claudiocn/slm
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install simple-lightdm-manager
Afterwards open SLM and browse for an image you want to use:
Additionally you can alter the logo that is displayed on the log-in screen’s bottom left corner.
Be aware though, that this does not work with images which are located in encrypted file systems!
HiJackThis is a software that is able to detect unusual entries on your registry and hard drive and create a log file with the information it gathered about the running processes. This log file can either be analysed by the user himself or be copied into an automatic analyser that shows if the entries are rated safe or dangerous.
You can download HiJackThis here: http://www.trendmicro.com/ftp/products/hijackthis/HiJackThis.msi
If you made the program create a log file after scanning, it is recommended to copy and paste it into an automatic analyser such as the one you can find here: http://www.hijackthis.de/en. The analyser will then give you an overview of the scanned files combined with a rating given by visitors.
If you find any unsafe entries, you are given the option to fix them in the program’s window. Be cautious what you delete however, inform yourself about the stated entries and do not rely on information provided by a single source. Always double-check before you delete an entry.
