"GDM (GNOME Display Manager) is not running

You might be using a different display manager, such as KDM (KDE Display Manager), CDE login (dtlogin), or xdm. If you wish to use this feature, then your system will need to be configured to use GDM instead."

Try this command:

sudo /etc/init.d/gdm start (Just copy and paste the command above (and you might need to hit the enter button) into the terminal. You can open the terminal form the menu.

Then try to install the GDM theme again.
