How to Remove White Dots from Ubuntu 13.10 Login Screen

Hello Guys!

We all know Ubuntu has some white dots on the LightDM login screen. Some people like it and some don’t. Well, in this tutorial we are going to show you how to simply change this.

The image below shows the login screen with the white dots.

before_loginTo do this, First Open the Terminal and run the following commands one after the other.

$ sudo xhost +SI:localuser:lightdm
$ localuser:lightdm being added to access control list
$ gsettings set com.canonical.unity-greeter draw-grid false

After running the above commands, logging on later, you should now see at the login screen without dots:

after_login To restore to the previous screen with the dots, replace false in the third command with true. Like this:

gsettings set com.canonical.unity-greeter draw-grid true

Enjoy 😉
