    Using 19 runit with antixcc.sh (change slim background) is not working right as the slim.conf looks for the theme /usr/share/slim/themes/current_theme BlueLines and only changers the ground file in /usr/share/slim/themes/ antiX. To work right the background file should change in the bluelines folder background file. To make the background file change you would have to change the theme to antiX in the slim.conf file.

    antiX is not even part of the theme list in slim.conf.( The background needs to change in the current theme being used.)

    # current theme, use comma separated list to specify a set to
    # randomly choose from
    current_theme BlueLines
    #current_theme BlueLinesLight
    #current_theme antiXIce
    #current_theme DarkCity
    #current_theme PrettyPink
    #current_theme SunnyDay

    This can be done manual to change the background and still keep the blueLines color theme.

    Look at script file /usr/local/bin/antixccslim.sh

    At the top of the script it contains a change log and
    should look like this for the latest version:

    #!/bin/bash
    # File Name: slimbackground.sh
    # Purpose: allow user to set slim login background
    # Authors: OU812 for antiX
    # Latest Change: 20 August 2008
    # latest Change: 02 January 2009 and renamed antixccslim.sh
    # latest Change: 06 April 2009 changed cd directory
    # latest Change: 16 October 2018 changed icon path
    # latest Change: 07 November 2019 accommodates multiple slim themes and
    #                                 verifies selected background

    It appears the one you are using is not the latest version.

    I have this in /usr/local/bin/antixccslim.sh after installing antiX-19.1-runit-sid_386-core Marielle Franco 19 December 2019

    Philosophers have interpreted the world in many ways; the point is to change it.

    antiX with runit - leaner and meaner.

    Hi,

    I have Manolis Glezos and the problem is still there.

    I don’t have this lines in /usr/local/bin/antixccslim.sh:

    # latest Change: 07 November 2019 accommodates multiple slim themes and
    # verifies selected background

    Is it going to be updated?

    I just tested it on antiX 21 and I could change the background (only pngs). I will test in a bit on antiX 19.4

    Worked for me on antiX 19 too. Are you using a different theme to the antiX theme?

    $ sudo /usr/local/bin/antixccslim.sh
    '/usr/share/wallpaper/antiX-ice.png' -> '/usr/share/slim/themes/antiX/background.jpg' (backup: '/usr/share/slim/themes/antiX/background.jpg~')
    BACKGROUND="/usr/share/wallpaper/antiX-ice.png"
    EXIT="close"

    If you are still having problems, you can try the new script used in future antiX 21, which should also work on antiX 19.
    https://gitlab.com/antiX-Linux/antix-goodies/-/blob/master/bin/login-config-antix
    You can replace the contents of /usr/local/bin/antixccslim.sh with the ones above (not recommended) or create a new file with executable permissions and paste the content of the file in gitlab (and then run the script with sudo).

    No, I never changed the theme

    $ sudo /usr/local/bin/antixccslim.sh
    '/home/tiziano/Immagini/wallpaper/Skellig_Michael03(js)_blur_1024x600.png' -> '/usr/share/slim/themes/antiX/background.jpg' (backup: '/usr/share/slim/themes/antiX/background.jpg~')
    BACKGROUND="/home/tiziano/Immagini/wallpaper/Skellig_Michael03(js)_blur_1024x600.png"
    EXIT="close"

    Thank you for the suggestions, I’ll try.

    Thank you again, replacing the script with the new one worked fine for me!
