Description:

This is theme nearly looks like macOS lockscreen , with script which can set wallpaper for your desktop and simultaneously set same wallpaper on lock screen and login screen with blur effect like on macOS. In attachment you will find file ubuntu.css, where injected some changes, to make your login screen and lock screen looks more like mac OS.

ATTENTION: TESTED AND WORK ONLY ON UBUNTU 17.10 with GDM3 (xorg), 18.04.xx LTS, 18.10 Cosmic Cuttlefish and 19.04 Disco Dingo (Any other OS based on Linux like: Lubuntu, Xbunte, Kubuntu, KDE, Manjaro, Mint and other... didn't tested!!!).

For Ubuntu 19.04 (Disco Dingo) download files:
High_Ubunterra_DD-X.X(noPass).tar.xz
High_Ubunterra_DD-X.X(Pass).tar.xz

For Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish) download files:
High_Ubunterra_CC-X.X(noPass).tar.xz
High_Ubunterra_CC-X.X(Pass).tar.xz

Not work on few monitors ( Just don't have second monitor so i can't develop work version (-_-) Sorry ).

Two versions:
High_Ubunterra_X.X(noPass) - without asking password to set wallpaper but script give full permission for root folder " /usr/share/backgrounds/ " by chmod 777 (not safety).
High_Ubunterra_X.X(Pass) - with asking password each time you set wallpaper for change background of " lockscreen ", it is safe, but not comfortable for user.
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

REQUIREMENTS:
#1 - For Ubuntu 19.04 !!! Well, i don`t know how it will be on your version of Ubuntu 19.04, i mean how you install it. Was it update form 18.10 like i did or it will be clean installation, you have to check have you imagemagick, graphicsmagick. If not, uncomment this strings first in install.sh (I made update from 18.10 to 19.04 and loose graphicsmagick and imagemagick).

https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/disco/universe/base/imagemagick

#sudo apt upate
#sudo apt upgrade

#sudo apt install graphicsmagick-imagemagick-compat
#sudo apt install imagemagick-6.q16hdri
#sudo apt install imagemagick-6.q16

#2 - Plank (https://www.ubuntuupdates.org/package/core/bionic/universe/base/plank)
Or
#3 - Dash to dock extension (tune it how you want to see the dock, turn it off and turn on Ubuntu Dock). This way tested work fine.


-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

INSTALLATION howto:

1. Click right button of mouse and chose "Open in Terminal" in folder with install.sh, then type command chmode +x ./install.sh next step ./install.sh

2. Now you just choose your image right click mouse button you will see script and "SetAsWallpaper" just click on it, wallpaper already set.

3. To uninstall use command ./uninstall.sh

Enjoy!

Hello! Sorry to bother you. I'm using Ubuntu 18.04.1 LTS using VirtualBox with guess additions.
I'm following your instructions. At the beginning there was an error "file not found" that was because in my language, Downloads folder had another name (Descargas) however, I changed the system language in order to run your script.
But after that, I don't find any image in the folder to set the wallpaper... tried both 1.7 and 1.6

9 + Hello! Great theme, thank you! I have been using it since I installed 18.04 and it is very beautiful. However, one ubuntu update (for lenovo laptop x260) changed something, and now I cannot get back your beautiful lock screen (font has changed for the time, and login is back to some ubuntu style, a long rectangle). Do you know how I could fix it? Also, how can I update to your newest versions, just download them and install them on top of older versions? Again, thanks a lot for sharing your great work )))

Installing your new version resolved the issue, it seems the update changed some settings, and reinstalling your theme changed them back. Thanks !

and what, explain. If u afraid about your safety, i understand it. But its just backgrounds folder. Its safe. you can not use this Theme. I did this theme first of all for me. I want to share it if some want use it like me. So explain what u mean "I just leave it here..." its it's not respectful!

It is strictly forbidden to create world-writable directories in a system for third-party software, it can lead to security and DoS risks (any user/process can end up whole the free space). There is no single reason to do that. The only directories with world-writable permissions are /tmp and /var/tmp, and they have sticky-bit on them.

Thank u for a new information for me. If u want to help me i will be glad to read your suggesting, i change path of background to /var/tmp, i tried /tmp but content of this folder wiped after system reboot, so now background will be saved in /var/tmp which has full permission by the script.

Report

bzhmurov

No no, you shouldn't use neither /tmp nor /var/tmp for your themes. It's just... If you want to copy something in /usr/share/... you should use something like "sudo cp your_background.jpg /usr/share/path/..." or "su -c 'cp your_background.jpg /usr/share/...' ". But please, don't change system's folders permissions :)

- fixed the quality of blurry images ( Sorry (^_^) )

- ADD - version for Ubuntu 18.10 (Cosmic Cuttlefish)

2.2 1 year ago

- did much faster for slow computers, now image will convert to smaller size to blur at next step, which make all process much faster, and this way make blur effect identical for any resolution images. Now you won't see different blur depth at images. All will be the same!
- image on lock screen make a little bit darker of original what makes text more readable on bright wallpapers
