If you install lightdm on distributions other than Ubuntu you may want to have the Ubuntu logo in the lower left corner removed or altered. This can be done easily by editing the original picture file which is located in /usr/share/unity-greeter/ (remember to open the folder as administrator, or do it right from a terminal as root).
The file you want to edit is logo.png. You can either rename it, so it doesn’t show up on login anymore (for example, rename it to logo.png.bak – if you want it back, just remove the new extension again), or edit it with a graphical editor right away so that it reads something more appropriate to your distribution or login screen.
The system properties Window in Windows 7 has space for two Windows logos – one is the Windows logo that is shown by default on most systems and one is for manufacturers (computers by Dell and others will have their logo placed there). This manufacturer logo can be changed to an own picture using the registry.
- To start, edit the picture you want to use as logo. It has to be 120×120 pixel large and a bitmap file (.bmp, color range is up to you).
- Save the file into any directory now, I will choose C:\Windows\System32 for that but it can be any other. Name it oemlogo.bmp
- Open the registry by entering regedit into a Run… prompt. On the left column, navigate to the HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\Software\Microsoft\Windows\CurrentVersion\OEMInformation key.
- On the right column, if there is no value called Logo, create it by right-clicking the empty space and choosing New > String Value.
- Assign the full path of the picture to the Logo value (C:\Windows\System32\oemlogo.bmp).
- Close the registry and open the system properties window to view your beautiful new logo:
