Posted by noly So, I’ve been trying to change the default login background. I’ve ran across posts that say to use LightDM GTK Settings app, however that does not work since slick greeter is used instead of GTK greeter. I’ve also look it /etc/lightdm and those files had nothing about the background image info in them.

Posted by TheLinuxGooroo Just generally curious about what other Solus users use in order to protect their machines. I’m currently using UFW with GUFW installed as well. Is this enough protection or should I use an AV as well? If so, what AV?
