Screenshot and Video of New Lion Login Screen

Photo by @sadatkarim

Tonight's update to OS X Lion Developer Preview 4 includes an enhanced login screen (as seen during the WWDC keynote), including a new background showcasing the dark linen background that seems to be everywhere in iOS and OS X these days.


The old login screen displayed the clock and a Wi-Fi menu. The new screen also displays the current built, current IP address, and computer name -- cycling through the information is accomplished by clicking on the clock.

You know, you can get ACTUAL screenshots of the login screen using the terminal:

sudo screen -m -d bash -c "sleep 60; screencapture /Users/YOURHOMEFOLDER/Desktop/picture.png"
Run that in the terminal and log out to the login screen, and within 60 seconds you'll hear the snapshot sound, log back in and you'll have your screenshot.

UPDATE: See, I got a proper screenshot ;)

This is gorgeous. So much more sophisticated than the space background.

I love the tangible non-tech look.

I liked the plain white background better.


Great, here we go again.

Download the Linen Wallpaper

There was a downloadable copy of the Linen wallpaper available in another thread (https://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1164584) but it's clearly a fake one.

I've just found a small version and tiled it into 2560x1600 resolution, no lines, tiles perfectly.

Enjoy

Looks great! Feels more minimal, yet offers much more.

Yeah. I was there. Why did you post a picture and credit someone else without verifying the source first? When you guys posted an article with my own YouTube video in it you didn't even credit me. I had to come to the forum (Which I am already a member of anyway) and make myself known as the author.


give the guy his due!
