I'm using Ubuntu13.04. I changed my background-image. This image has some rather white blobs. When I reboot the computer (or log out) the names of other users are barely visible (because they have nearly the same colour as my background in that area). How can I change the colour of the user-names on the log-on-screen, such that they have more contrast with my background-image?

Or select the "high contrast" option under the assist icon (upper right on login page). But unfortunately/necessarily, this will change the login background too. –  ubfan1 Oct 21 '13 at 22:21
