Changed my settings into "lightdm-gtk-greeter" to be able to select different languages at login each time I wish.

Everything is fine with my PC. It logins correctly after a while with an exception that background wallpaper is distorted as seen in the sample picture( )

I installed Super-Boot-Manager and using it. Is it possible that Plymouth has caused into this?

How I can correct background appearance?

Thank you in advance.

I had the same problem. Come to find out, the background picture defined in /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf did not exist anymore. not sure how this happened, but i'd quess that my lightdm theme got messed up during an update.

I just edited that file, pointing background to an image that does exist and on reboot it was fine. you could prolly just reinstall the lightdm theme.
