    We have jumped ahead a bit (leaving a few features unfinished for the moment) to get to the beginnings of a distribution channel and an installer for this thing. Version 0.3 is now available for testing and it is probably easiest to install it using the python installer like so:

    Code:
    sudo easy_install gdm2setup
    This will download and install the entire app - GUI, libraries and a System / Administration / Login Screen (GDM2Setup) menu item. This command can be run again later to update the app. If you have never used easy_install before, check out the docs at http://peak.telecommunity.com/ and download at http://peak.telecommunity.com/dist/ez_setup.py

    This is a permanent home for the installer back-end, but we are now moving forward with the deb file and PPA which will still be on Launchpad. For those of you that actually look at the code - this version took on quite a bit of change to allow it to become an installable app. The most current updates and info will continue to be either here or posted on Launchpad.

    The other method of install is to download it from LP, untar it and then from a terminal window in the resultant folder type:
    Code:
    sudo python setup.py install
    This will also install the entire app - GUI, libraries and a System / Administration / Login Screen (GDM2Setup) menu item. It will not however allow the app to be as easily update-able.

    Ok - one step closer! The deb is now done and has had initial testing. It is available on LP for download and more testing. Please report all bugs there so that we can track them and expedite any fixes that are needed.

    Thank you, everyone, for all your help and praise. I expect to have the PPA done in the next day or so now, and then we will get back to completing the rest of the original features and requests. I suspect that once the PPA is up, we will be moving forward at a slightly more realistic pace however.

    I just want to say again that we are very interested in ideas for features and discussion on theme-file support / import of old GDM theme-files. This forum node is as good a place as any for that discussion Feel free - spout off!

    Talking Re: GDM2 Configuration Tool

    If anyone is willing to test the PPA out and report any issues, here it is - finally . Place the following lines in your /etc/apt/sources.list file:

    Code:
    # GDM2Setup
    deb http://ppa.launchpad.net/gdm2setup/gdm2setup/ubuntu karmic main #GDM2 Setup Utility
    deb-src http://ppa.launchpad.net/gdm2setup/gdm2setup/ubuntu karmic main #GDM2 Setup Utility (src)
    ...add the key for authentication...
    Code:
    sudo apt-key adv --keyserver keyserver.ubuntu.com --recv-keys 33C3C104
    ...then do the usual...
    Code:
    sudo apt-get update
    sudo apt-get install python-gdm2setup
    The application will now update along with your other packages automatically.

    Thank you in advance for all testing and feedback. Exosyst will probably update the front post to reflect this shortly.

    I've neglected the Desktop Environments section of the forums for ages, visited today after far to long. Stumbled across this thread and I'm elated! Thanks so much for GDM2 Configuration Tool. Installed via the PPA repo and it works perfectly.

    FINALLY! No more Ubuntu Cylon!

    You are very welcome!

    Heads up to everyone! There was a small bug in the userlist checkbox on build 0.3.1 that made it select the opposite of what you wanted and also not set the initial value. This has been resolved and a new deb (0.3.2) is building on LP as I write this. If you are using the PPA, you will automatically get the update in a few hours (when LP finishes building it).

    Thank you for all your bug reports everyone! They help a lot!

    Here are a few screen shots of the new GUI (click to enlarge):

    Why don't you attach a screenshot ? We would love to see gdm2 back.
    How can I use a signature in forums?
