    Try this python script: GDM2 Configuration Tool

    or run the theme manager as user gdm:
    Code:
    sudo -u gdm dbus-launch gnome-appearance-properties
    or set the theme in gconf editor:
    Code:
    sudo -u gdm dbus-launch gconf-editor
    edit the value of the /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme key

    That is no longer true for 9.10 I'm afraid. Due to a new GDM older themes and config utilities are no longer compatible.

    Far as I know you should still be able to change the background image for the login (they are found here: /usr/share/images/xsplash)

    OP, you may want to have a look at this thread, as I think its what you were after? http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1333683
