Hey man. I was wondering the same.

try going to System Tools --> LightDM GTK+ Greeter Settings --> Appearence and below you can see the option of changing the icon

HOWEVER,
it doesn't work for me, regardless of the icon I choose there. Perhaps it has to be of a very specific resolution/format?

Try if it works for you.
Curious to what the skilled guys on the forum say on this one :)

Cheers

Great. It worked and I've deleted the lowlatency kernel. So now I assume I should switch the GRUB timeout back to 0.
What's up next?

I gave it 10 tries with both love and hate, but it didn't work, unfortunately

Well here's a problem... My laptop goes from black screen (lit up, so it's not a delay of the screen lighting up) to login screen in 4 seconds flat, and there's nothing in between. Every other time I can see an underscore popping up in the top left corner for about 0.01 second, but that's it. I rebooted my machine like 25 times trying to press/hold or press+hold shift at any stage of the black screen/underscore, but nothing happens, it just keeps bringing me to the login screen.

(I played some quake3arena back in the day, even semi-pro, so I'm not that bad at hitting a button quickly, I should think)

Perhaps there's a different way/button to get me there?
I really appreciate you investing so much time into the issue.

the whatwhat? you mean Output devices --> advanced ---> latency (is set to 0). Should I change it to a different value? or did you mean something else?

Yes, distortion, crackling, tearing, bits of white noise.

and yes, I'm pretty sure, since it's a laptop and it only has a single socket for a headphone jack, and there's also a "headphones" icon right next to it.

If I'm using headphones (I tried 2 pairs - my Sony's with an angled jack and my wife's Sennheisers with a straight jack) to listen to music or watch videos, there is a degree of sound tearing, which becomes subtle (but is still there) if I reduce both the system and the application (or website) volumes to around 25-30-ish %. However, if I use VLC at same volumes (reduce VLC's volume controller as well), the tearing becomes even more apparent.

I went to the PulseAudio Volume control panel --> Configuration --> Profile --> and there are only 2 options that produce sound at all: Analog Stereo Output and Analog Stereo Duplex, but nothing changes if I switch between those, all the others are HDMI options and I have no sound if I switch to them.

I also tried the PulseAudio Equalizer, and using the "Headphones" option which helped a little - I can now have the same amount of tearing at slightly higher volumes, but it doesn't seem like a solution.

Not sure if I have this problem because I'm noob, or if this is a hardware/peripherals problem... Perhaps this thread should be moved to a different forum section, but it was hard for me to decide - my apologies.  :(

Okay, solved the getting out of fullscreen by going to View ---> taking the tick off " Fullscreen Interface F11 "
Pretty sure I didn't put it there, but I could have in my previous frantic tries... sorry about that  ;)

PCNetSpec: setting video output to "Open GLX video output (XCB)" option did the trick for small res videos. Now they actually fit the screen - the videos became much bigger, rateher than being tiny squares surrounded by background, and it fixed the blue background

murraymint: still can't leave fullscreen with doubleclick. It goes between 2 types of fullscreen, with the only difference being the size of the video time panel size, and there is no resizing icon when I mouseover the edges in either mode.

 ,but this is definitely an improvement. 2 issues left - inability to leave full screen and sound tearing with headphones (only in VLC), but the audio issue I will start as a new thread in a while, if I won't be able to figure it out myself. Thank you for your help, guys!

Murraymint: nope, double-clicking didn't help.

AndyInMokum: sorry about that, I'll make sure to do it properly in the future. :-\

GNULINUX: that certainly helped to an extent (for high-res videos), thank you!  :D There's no "X" button to close the window now, so I can only do it with cntrl + Q, but that's fine. However, the small res videos can't be stretched or enlarged (perhaps I shouldn't be able to do that? ), but a small res video is still surrounded by a bright blue screen, which makes your eyes bleed if you keep watching the video for extended periods of time. It turns from blue to black if I restart the video a couple of times (4-6 times, actually).

Hello guys,

PROBLEM: If I'm trying to watch a video of a resolution that is higher, than that of my screen (1366x768), it blows out of proportion and I'm watching a corner of the video, as a result. Going fullscreen, resizing, minimizing or maximizing doesn't help one bit, neither does forceful locking down of aspect ratio. If the video is of a smaller resolution, than that of my screen, it opens up in a small square, and if I go fullscreen, it stays the same size, but surrounded by a blue screen.   What do I do?  :-\

Thank you!
