There are some secret things to discover on the Nokia N9. One thing I found today is that there is a place for a 120x120px operator logo on the standby screen below the clock. You can set a black/white PNG image for that and it looks very nice and unique.

There are two ways to do this, but first we need a nice image. I used this small tux:


The picture must have a maximum size of 120 x 120 pixel and can only consist of black and white.
GUI method

You can use an application called LPMCustomizer for this. Download it here:

Just open the debian package with the N9 and it should install the application automatically. This app doesn't work for me so I tried the terminal way.

Terminal method

First copy the image to a folder you normally don't see so that you can't delete the image by accident. I copied it to "/home/user/" with this command:

cp /home/user/MyDocs/Pictures/tux_bw.png /home/user/standby.png

Now you can just open the Terminal application and enter the following command

gconftool-2 -t string -s /desktop/meego/screen_lock/low_power_mode/operator_logo /home/user/standby.png

When everything goes right your standby scren should look like this now:
