Opening stuff on the login screen (Zorin OS 15.1)

Post by Meow »

Is it possible? Similar to replacing sethc.exe with cmd and opening it on the login screen on Windows XP-Windows 10, but on Linux.

Try switching the windows 3.0 ega driver with windows 1.01’s. it will be fun.

Hhhhmmmm :o
Like tricking the "Accessibility" menu to open the terminal?
I don't think it's possible. *-)
I mean, it needs a lot of hacking to do that. (tux2)
Thinking of the past...

Yes, exactly. I was wondering how the accessibility menu works and if I could make one of the options or the menu open the terminal.

I have browsed in the /usr folder and found gnome-shell’s data and extensions, but no login screen.

Changing GNOME Shell .desktop file to Nautilus works. On boot it opened nautilus.

You can go to a terminal screen just by pressing CTRL + ALT + F1-6 and to go back to the normal screen you do CTRL + ALT + F7, but that requires you to log in, and I am not sure if it works on Wayland.
