Title: How do I change the login screen in Ubuntu 16.04+?

To change the login screen in Ubuntu 16.04 I used the following:

gksu gedit /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas/10_unity_greeter_background.gschema.override

Insert these lines:

# After changing use: sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas


Save the file and exit gedit

Now compile the new login wallpaper with:

sudo glib-compile-schemas /usr/share/glib-2.0/schemas

Last step is to reboot.

Many thanks and credit to Serg: (Change the background of the login screen) Note on my system this no only changes the initial login screen but also the lock screen login as well.

Point and click with Nautilus to set login screen wallpaper

I wrote a script where you can navigate to a directory / image, right click on it and set it as login screen / lock screen background using Nautilus (file manager now called β€œFiles”): Nautilus can set desktop wallpaper. How can it set login and lock screen wallpaper?
