View Full Version : [SOLVED] Applying gtk theme to login screen

January 23rd, 2010, 05:07 PM
Hello guys,
I recently installed a new theme for my desktop but now my login screen looks like windows 98 lol. I couldn't figure out how to apply my gtk theme to the login screen. I also tried installing a new theme just for the login screen and found a couple alright ones but I can't figure out how to install them. I get places directing me to System > Administration > Login Window or to use GDM but they aren't there and I haven't managed to find out what to install to get them to show up. If I could get a hand installing a new theme or applying my gtk theme to the login screen, either one would be very helpful.
Thank you very much!

try this python script: GDM2 Configuration Tool


run the theme manager as user gdm:

sudo -u gdm dbus-launch gnome-appearance-properties
or set the theme in gconf editor:

sudo -u gdm dbus-launch gconf-editor
edit the value of the /desktop/gnome/interface/gtk_theme key
