Xfce 4.8 custom login screen background

Copy a *.jpg (preferably a size of your screen's native resolution, DO NOT use another file type, the greeter has issues with other file types, like not being able to read them) to:

/usr/share/pixmaps

(this directory is readable by LightDM greeter to display a pic as a background, it has permissions issues with other directories on boot), copy the directory and filename to lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf in /etc/lightdm, specifically the "background=" line, example:

background=/usr/share/pixmaps/BabyDuckPaddling1920x1080.jpg
