View Full Version : [ubuntu] Login Screen Change the picture
November 6th, 2010, 01:38 PM
I recently got this theme / login screen from here > http://art.gnome.org/themes/gdm_greeter
It is the 3rd one named "Login-Scan-fusion" I don't know how to set this up, how do I make it my login screen? I am using ubuntu 10.4LTS

These steps did the job for me in Lucid. In a terminal:
$ sudo cp /usr/share/applications/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop /usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow && exit
Then logout, when you do, a window will appear at the login screen where you can set your login screen. Select your photo
and log back in. When you do, open up another terminal and type: $ sudo unlink /usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop

OK I found out how do give my self permissions, from that link on top I downloaded the "loginScanFusion.tar.gz" I want that whole thing to be my login screen theme. I checked some websites and It says under System>Administration>Login Window.
I don't have the login window, I got "login screen" (which only changes the behaviour not theme)...I am using ubuntu 10.4LTS please help

I am not quite sure what you are trying to do. Have you tried to do it the way I told you and it didn't work?
