How you can change you're gdm gtk3 theme with fedora 15.
Prerequisite: gnome-tweak-tool and a terminal (gnome-terminal)
( insert password)
Now we are root and the first step is to install gnome-tweak-tool if you already did this skip this. Install gnome-tweak-tool
yum install gnome-tweak-tool
Now we make the gdm user available to make changes:
# xhost +SI:localuser:gdm
If you did this right you get this message:
localuser:gdm being added to access control list
Next we will fire up gnome-tweak-tool
# sudo -u gdm gnome-tweak-tool
This will start gnome-tweak-tool as the user gdm (sudo -u username will start the application as designated user). Now we can change the interface gtk+theme, icon theme and cursor theme to whatever you like. Don't forget to change windows current theme to what you want.
How to change gdm login background:
# sudo -u gdm gnome-control-center
Here you can change the background
And when you're done exit the gnome-tweak-tool or gnome-control-center and type:
(ps the # sign is the sign you're running the command as ROOT don't copy it!!
I updated my laptop from F12 to F14 via preupgrade. After doing so, the standard mouse theme was active. So I installed the one I like again and set it as mouse theme. For some reason it is now a mixture of the one I installed and the standard theme. If I open a place in nautilus the displayed symbol is the right one while waiting, if I open something in control center I get the standard icon. Same problem with drag and drop, I always get the hand from the standard theme. I also tried the former standard theme Bluecurve and it was the same problem.Can anyone tell me what goes wrong with the theme? What has changed in F14, that the older themes won't work?
I overwrote this laptop from an Ubuntu installation to Fedora 15 (Gnome 3 doesn't work, in fallback mode) and unfortunately the theme is messed up. Using Gnome-Tweak tool I cannot change the shell theme, instead I get the message Quote:Could not list shell extensionsAny way to bypass or clear out so it returns to default?---------- Post added at 10:36 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:12 PM ----------After reboot I had kernel crashes and the system would not boot up anymore. So I re-installed over the previous one, and modified the .gconf, .gconfd, .gnome2 and .gnome2_private before connecting my /home directory to the folder
How can I change the login theme in Fedora 10. I googled for so long but I am not able to get an answer for Fedora 10. And unlike Fedora 8 there is no option in System -> Administration -> Login Window . This option is no there in Fedora 10 . is it some missing components or do I need to install additional package.
I was looking up how to change my login screen to something pretty cool, and I kept seeing GDM pop up. So i have been looking all over my machine to find it, and found a bunch of GDM stuff, but have no idea how to set it up? How can I change my login screen theme??

I was playing with some gtk2 themes and , unaware of the consequences, i manually changed folder icons from folder properties for some of the folders (desktop, document, music, etc) in my home directory. The problem now is that these folder icons do not change when i change the icon theme. how can i bring it back to normal?
Im trying to use a downloaded theme (from [URL]) om my FVWM window manager, but the theme depends on various programs that isn`t in the Fedora repository. Namely habak, trayer and rox-filer (the last one is optional though). Is there any way to download these programs and install them independantly?
I've gone about as far as I can with this without trashing my system. I'm running Mint 10 LXDE with XFCE.
Ultimate objective: Install latest Anjuta 3.0 from source (not yet in repos). Anjuta ./configure reported a need for updated packages, such as GTK 3.0, Glib, Gio, etc. I downloaded GTK 3.0 and 'config' reported a need for an updated Glib. So I downloaded that and have installed it successfully (no prefixes; from home dir.)
But now GTK config is stating that it has found two versions of Glib, which I guess makes sense since I made no attempt to replace the old one. So, what is/was the proper way to replace the old Glib so there is only one version, or, is that a bad idea? Will some software still be dependent on the old Glib, or do the devs make the libraries backward compatible? Where do I go from here?
I'm running Fedora 11 x86_64 (GNOME) and I'm having a problem installing ANY themes from http://art.gnome.org. Any time I try to install a theme I get an error that it's "appears to not be a valid theme" When I first click the install button and navigate to my theme packages, I don't see the [dot] theme file, which is a red-flag. I change to "All files" and I tend to see an "index.theme". Is this the correct file?
since few days I have installed a fresh debian testing on my new laptop, I am using XFCE4 as DE, I noticed that when I use these themes: greybird, bluebird and albatross the GTK3 applications (mostly from gnome 3 stack) do not display correctly the application. I have another laptop with an older debian testing with XFCE4 and the GTK3 themes work properly. The only relevant difference between the old computer and the new one are the video driver, the older use radeonsi driver and newest the nvidia blob binary.
There are these shortcuts in the GTK3 file chooser: [URL] ....
With the exception of "desktop" which I included in the red box by mistake, I don't want those shorcuts to be there. I've even deleted most of those folders from my home directory because I have no use for them, but the shortcuts remain even after the folders are gone.
How to remove/disable these shortcuts? And while I'm at it, I notice that it's not using my selected icon theme for those icons. Any way to make it use my choice of icon theme?
I can't change my GDM theme any more nor will I be able to in the next version of Ubuntu! I know why (the gnome developers took the feature out in the re-write of GDM). I have two questions. Why is GDM so bloated that they can't re-write all of the features? It also seems to take a lot of resources (more than the others). My second question. When, if ever, will I be able to customize my gdm theme again?
What happened to the gdm configuration screen where I could change the default gdm theme? This seems to have disappeared from ubuntu 10.04, and in my personal opinion, the white/purple default theme of the new gdm is terrible and I would like to change it. Where is the GUI for this in lucid, and why has it disappeared?
EDIT: System -> Administration -> Login Screen only allows me to change automatic logins and other features like that. The GUI I'm referring to isn't there.
I can get to System / Preference / Appearance / Theme in 10.04 but when I decide I want to use the Clearbooks theme and open it, there is no icon to click to install it. Exactly how does this work, step by step?
I have installed some kdm themes (ethais, NewEssenceFinal, oxygen, oxygen-air, MIB-Ossigeno-Kdm-Neutral-2.2) that I would like to try out and they are present in "/usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/themes/".
Changing the theme through SystemSettings>Login Screen changed nothing, logging out still defaulted to the default SUSE theme. So I tried the SysConfig editor through YAST and changed DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME to the theme I wanted, still no change after logging out. I have also changed DISPLAYMANAGER to kdm4.
Opened the "/etc/sysconfig/displaymanager" file to make sure the correct line had changed, and it was.
I deleted the SUSE theme, again made sure the theme I wanted was selected, but now it defaults to a background wallpaper and rather plain looking login screen. I don't know if this is correct but I am using the folder name of the theme I want as the string I enter into SysConfig. I have even rebooted several times just in case it was required. I have tried this through my regular account, obviously entering my root password when required, and also through the root account itself.
I've decided to migrate from gnome to openbox but I'm having a few issues with lxappearance in order to change the gtk theme. When I run lxappearance I get the following error (lxappearance:3812): Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated And I'm unable to change any of the themes. When I do try and change the theme I get the following (lxappearance:381: Gtk-WARNING **: GtkSpinButton: setting an adjustment with non-zero page size is deprecated.

Got a simple question about xubuntu. I installed it from ubuntu via 'xubuntu-desktop' package and all seems to be working fine. My ubuntu programs and files appear in xubuntu and run normally. However, when I change the theme, the metacity window frame remains the same. How do I change it? It's stuck with the last used ubuntu metacity theme.
