Login Screen:
Terminal: sudo nano /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf

Then change:
background = Background file to use, either an image path or a color (e.g. #772953)



Desktop:
Start Menu/ Preferences/Appearance Settings

Navigate to, and then select the image file (Picture), click "ok".

You can change the Desktop color, menu bar color, text color, toolbar font, etc., all from "Appearance Settings".

There is an lxde wallpaper changer/slideshow called lxrotator, only available for PClinux OS I believe, but it may be possible to adapt for the Pi

Is there a way to make the box invisible, or at least change the dimensions of the box so that its 1 pixel big?
