Thanks :-) . but it doesn't have information about adding the clock in the login screen – joe Oct 5 '09 at 8:46
That's probably as good as you can get. I don't think you can do more than change the background image. – harrymc Oct 5 '09 at 8:50
Do there exist any "dynamic" backgrounds? – Ivo Flipse Oct 5 '09 at 9:01

I assume you want to see a clock when you have your account locked and you're at the login screen?

Since in that case I think the only solution is to install a clock screensaver and make it On resume, display logon screen

That way you're computer will show whichever clock screensaver you can find and will return you to the login screen if you have to logon again.

Note: I understand this isn't what you're asking for. But AFAIK you can only change the background image of your logon screen and I don't think there exist any dynamic wallpapers that would allow you to have a clock on it...
