The lightdm draw-user-backgrounds method stretches my wallpaper so it looks really ugly. Currently my hack is to set my wallpaper centered, then grab a screenshot, blank out desktop icons in GIMP, and use that screenshot as my wallpaper … is there a way to simply tell lightdm to not stretch the image? (For draw-user-backgrounds to be useful, it really ought to draw it the way xubuntu does …)
