You should've edited your previous answer, instead of posting a new one.

I think this question fits into services provided by Ubuntu, if the OP is using Ubuntu.

comment How can I use custom wallpapers for the login screen?
Yep. Your questions help others who face the same problem, so you really don't need to thank anyone or one thing can be that both thank each other which, ofcourse, doesn't seem much senseful. :)

When you copy the picture to /usr/share/backgrounds you also need to change the permissions - read-write for owner and read-only for others. This can be accomplished by sudo chmod 644 filename. Also, is your home directory encrypted? Lastly, you need not thank everyone, this is just the way AskUbuntu works.

Is the Pictures folder the default one i.e. located at /home/username/Pictures?

comment How to install Hadoop?
@TheLordofTime The detailed answer would atmost contain 5 lines as the question is too localized. And if an answer containing the installation instructions for Hadoop is expected, it would be redundant as the link mentioned in the question explains it wonderfully. Moreover since the answer, with the most votes, was posted by the asker him/herself, it is very unlikely he/she would accept any other answer.

comment Unable to shut down Ubuntu 11.10
First use sudo shutdown -P now instead of -h. Next try sudo shutdown -P now and again turn the computer ON. Now, try shutting it down using the GUI.

comment Unable to install Macbuntu
No you won't be able to install this particular theme in the future release as it is extremely unlikely that the future releases will revert back to Gnome 2.

comment How to recover root user
@DanNeely I was thinking on similar lines. Probably just adding the username to /etc/group using a live CD would work?
