10.4 "or later", eh? I hope the author has accounted for the fact that 10.5 uses a completely different picture location (/System/Library/CoreServices/).

Can't locate DefaultDesktop.jpg in Tiger, so I figure the above relates to Leopard only?

Duuh.. that was supposed a reply to a thread lower down, yet ended up here and I can't even seem to correct that -- oh well, I give up on this... anyways, the whole thing doesn't work under Tiger, it seems to sort of dislike the string set in loginwindow plist, and I also do not see which default desktop picture to change directly to get the desired effect --- nice idea though...

If you want to fix your login screen after this application screws it up, run this at your terminal: sudo defaults write /Library/Preferences/com.apple.loginwindow DesktopPicture /System/Library/CoreServices/DefaultDesktop.jpg To change the background of the login screen, you can either alter the path above, or change the DefaultDesktop.jpg file. Pax.

Not really a script, just a terminal command. But, yes, it should correct the changes that script made. It did for me.

Didn't work for me in Mac OS X 10.5 Leopard. Logging out left a blue screen that hung for a while and then it finally gave up and showed the normal login background of blue.
