Changing brown background for my splash screen


Hello,

I have a dark theme on my Ubuntu 7.10 machine. I've changed the login screen and added the black splash screen (the one that comes up after the login) with the gconf-editor.

The only problem is that when my splash appears the background is brown. I don't know how to change that. I set the background to black on system>administration>login window then I click on the local tab and changed it there. Still brown.


What can be the problem? Anyone else have this issue?

If you tried using a black wallpaper, another way would be to select No Picture then in the Options section select Single Colour click the colour box and change it to black.

I'm not sure where to set the settings that you are describing above... :/

So far nothing I've tried has worked...anyone have any ideas?

It's in the Login Manager. The same place where you would go to set the background Login Wallpaper.
