How To Take Photo Of Slick Greeter
« on: April 26, 2020, 08:09:18 pm »
Ever wanted to take a picture or screenshot of your login screen, for future reference, like the one below??

All you have to do is when you get to the login screen 
Code: [Select]
Is Push PrtSc Button On Your Keyboard
The only problem is, is that it saves it as root and as lightdm owning it, plus it is not in your home folder.
It's in
Code: [Select]
/var/lib/lightdmOpen file manager left click File System.

Then double click var folder.

Then double click lib folder.

Right click lightdm folder you will have to scroll down to find it as folders are in alphabetical order.

Left Click Open As Root.

Pop your password in the box that comes up and you should see another window pop up titled Elevated Privileges.
Right click screenshot and choose properties.

Left Click the Permissions tab.

Left Click the box next to Owner find your username in the list.

Left Click your username.

Left Click the Box next to Group.

Again choose your username again Go on be a Devil  :D

After doing so click close.

Right Click screenshot and Left Click cut.

Click On home.

Then Double Click Folder With Your username written underneath.

Find some empty space and right click and left click paste

Close Elevated Privileges Window, then push home in your normal File manager.
You should see it in there, waiting for you to have a look at.

And finally here is mine.

And here is the back end.

I hope this tutorial helps anyone out wanting to take a photeaohgraaaphh of their login screen. This only works in Slick-Greeter, don't try doing it in normal Lightdm it won't work, though there is a way to do it in there too, but will take me ages to write tutorial for.  :D

Not only is Peppermint an addictive OS to use.
But so is this Forum :)
