[OPEN] Lost Arco Favicon at Login

Post by fhins » Wed Mar 25, 2020 12:40 am

No big issue, but I lost my Arco Favicon at login after an update today. There is a blank white spot replaced the Arco favicon, but of course it didn't cause any problem, just cosmetic! I have ArcolinuxB-Plasma-Min-v20.

I reverted back via Timshift and got my Arco logo back. I'll wait a while until you have a chance to look at it before I update again.

Did not change that.

Update the system.

/etc/skel always contains this icon.

That is your backup.

Not quite following you. Are you saying update the system again, and then....?
"/etc/skel always contains this icon"
Where do I go after updating to get the icon back? What is command line to place the logo (favicon) back on the login screen?

skel is the alias to copy/paste the content from /etc/skel to your home dir

See that you know what the consequences are.

Hey @fhins
Open your Settings Manager > LightDM Gtk+Greeter Settings and see if the user image check box is checked and if yes, is the default user icon showing?
Hope that helps. - v

Something terribly went wrong when I was fooling around try fixing it. I should have left it alone! I had to reformat the darn thing. :cry:

Don't feel bad. All in all, based on 20+ years of using and losing Linux, almost all new installs were better than the "old" one.
I hope that your new install will be much better. :)
