Changing the unRAID GUI login background?


Recommended Posts

I'm hoping to change it from it's green galaxy with the unRAID logo to a custom 'aperture laboratories' or 'black mesa' background so during the few seconds of boot that occur once a year my fedora and the crippling fear of living in my mothers basement for the rest of my life can be justified.
 

If it's not just an image file is anyone familiar with a good system or workflow to enable its change?

You mean something like this:

Copy the file to your flash drive (named something like background.jpg)

 

Add the following to you go file (config folder on the flash drive) before the emhttp line

cp /boot/background.jpg /usr/share/slim/themes/default/background.jpg

@Squid, sorry but I have been unsuccessful so far.

Here's a photo of my login screen for the boot gui:

And here's a photo of the modified code:

And here's a photo of the image I'm trying to replace

And here's a photo of where that photo is located

ANYTHING you can tell me would help. AND if you thought I was talking about something else could clarify what that other thing was?

@Squid, Good Day, and thank you for all you do. I have tried this, to no avail. I ensured to have background.jpg, on my flash. I also made sure to put the line you specified above the emhttp line in the go file. 

 

I am using Version: 6.8.0-rc6

 

I tried it with as you posted - cp /boot/background.jpg /usr/share/slim/themes/default/background.jpg

Then looked for that folder and I couldn't find /slim/themes/default, I did find, -  /usr/share/themes/default/background.jpg

 

I tried that too to no avail. Do you have any, suggestions? Thanking you in advance.

It works as a .png in 6.9

cp /boot/background.png /usr/share/slim/themes/default/background.png

Add to within your go file

 

You cannot change the Login screen however for the webUI.  This is for the login screen / background when using the GUI boot mode
