How To configure GDM Login Screen Background ?

Hello Everyone!

I have used Fedora a long time ago and am making a comeback with F21. All looks good, but I have one problem - setting a background image on the login screen. I am trying to set the Whispy_Tails.jpg image in the /usr/share/backgrounds/gnome directory but it's not working.

I tried whatever was mentioned here, but no luck.

I know the difference between Desktop Background and Lock Screen. In this post, I am not talking about either. I am talking about the GDM background screen (which is currently Grey/Black) where I login.

Using Fedora 21 Workstation x86_64 with GNOME.

Thanks !!
