Log-in screen does not respect display resolution

I’ve set the Display resolution to 1080p, however, every time Manjaro boots, the log-in screen loads with the 4K resolution.

:+1: Welcome to Manjaro! :+1:

Please read this:

and post some more information so we can see what’s really going on. Now we know the symptom of the disease, but we need some more probing to know where the origin lies…

An inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host would be the minimum required information… (Personally Identifiable Information like serial numbers and MAC addresses will be filtered out by the above command)


P.S. If you enter a bit more details in your profile, we can also see which Desktop Environment you’re using, which CPU/GPU you have, …

Thanks Fabby!

I thought this was a known issue with High-DPI screens.

inxi --admin --verbosity=7 --filter --no-host

You may be able to set it up in /etc/init/lightdm.conf, but I have no experience with it, never even looked at this file.

Try installing slick-greeter and the settings package

sudo pacman -Syu lightdm-slick-greeter lightdm-settings

There is a couple of greeter themes as well but it is very easy to modify /etc/lightdm/slick-greeter.conf to use another wallpaper.
