xfce4-screensaver background change


Following from this post:

The community helps me to find the answer: this involves creating a .service file in /etc/systemd/system and it works ! In my i3lock@.service, I pointed the lockscreen to use /usr/bin/xfce4-screensaver.

The question now is how do you change the wallpaper of the xfce4-screensaver utility? It now defaults to a blue background, with the login window in the middle. I would like to change this blue background.

I tried to look into xfce4-screensaver-preferences but all that I could find was option for things like when to sleep/hibernate/...etc.

Setting a screensaver doesnt help. Say I set a screensaver, upon resume from sleep, that screensaver will be playing, then I press a key (enter or just move the mouse around) and I then get greeted with the same thing: blue background, login text in the middle.

Please let me know how to resolve this issue.
