On the current version of Ubuntu it is possible to change the login background but not the greeter. I use Ubuntu Tweak login settings for changing the background. (First Link)

The second link is a little dated but provides some useful installation information and I haven't found a newer replacement for it .

To change the theme (not the login screen) go to System -> Preferences -> Appearance and click on the Install button in the Theme tab. Then select the downloaded tar.gz file.
