hello, i have try to change my themes to OSX Leopard, but there is some trouble about changing the login screen...there is the command:

6. Install the OS X login screen (Login screens are generally referred to Gnome Display Manager or GDM)


- Open the Login Window manager via System--->Administration--->Login Window
- Enter administration password
- Select the Local tab
- Click the Add button and point to the osx-login.tar.gz archive or use one of the other archives in the GDM folder
- You should see a new login screen appear
- Place a check mark by the new login screen and make sure there are no other check marks next to any other login screens
- Select Close

but i can't find system-->administration-->login window in Ubuntu 10.04...someone help me please.....

Hi,

Apparantly, this feature has been removed from 10.04. You could manually change the background, or use a tweak util for it:

I also want to customize the login screen. Which files should I edit to change the layout of the login window(or other properties)? And where can I find the widgets it uses?

This lack of functionality is very frustrating. Every upgrade seems to be a downgrade...

I agree. I'm very happy with some changes, but many things have either stagnated or regressed (Xinerama, for example).

Thanks to the link poster. I'm going to give it a shot.

It's sad when the small "goodies" (tweaks) disappear for no apparent reason. I understand hiding of certain options and then allowing them to be displayed/activated, but the reasoning behind removing them is beyond me.

Time could be better spent towards nailing font display clarity once and for all, providing functional Ubunto One stuff, synchronization daemons for a number of services, and what not..

OTOH, there seems to be plenty of helpful people around the globe that are interested in fixing things, so there's always a way around obstacles :-)
