Log-in screen background image, extractgst.sh, missing icons directory.

Running extractgst.sh as suggested in chapter "Log-in screen background image", returns the error

$ [...]/shell-theme/theme/icons/message-indicator-symbolic.svg: No such file or directory

Can this error be ignored or is it better to add something like the following to the script?

if [ ! -d ${workdir}/theme/icons ]; then
  mkdir ${workdir}/theme/icons
fi

Change the language section

Unfortunately, the toggle Login Screen only appears when there are multiple users on the system. I did not find a way to change the settings other than creating another user.

To change the GDM language, ensure that gnome-control-center is installed. Then, start gnome-control-center and choose Region & Language. In the header bar, check the Login Screen toggle button. Finally, click on Language and choose your language from the list. You will be prompted for your root password. --Freley (talk) 21:04, 19 November 2017 (UTC)
