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 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?
openSUSE 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4 release 2.I can change the desktop theme and the splash theme, but I can not change the KDM login manager theme.First, I changed th setting /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME from suse to nothing in Yast -> /etc/sysconfig editor in order to get rid of the ugly Suse login theme.That resulted in having the traditional KDM login theme with the clock.I go to Personal Settings -> Advanced tab -> System: Login Manager (I enter the root password).In tab "General" I checked "Use themed greeter". Gui style and color scheme are set to default.In tab "Theme" I select a theme, click apply, then clikc ok.I log out and log in again. Nothing has changed. I still have the oldstyle KDM login theme.
After having been seduced by Windows 7 I have finally come back to Ubuntu (10.04), imagine my shock at having found that the Dev's for god only knows what reason have removed the ability to change the GDM login theme. I have downloaded a couple of themes from Gnome look and want to install / apply the theme, ideally with an app with a GUI interface.
I would like to change the login theme for Kubuntu 10.10. How do I do that? I go into the Login Screen Settings and click Get New Themes, I choose the one I want, download it, and it never shows up, none of them do except the default Ethias or whatever it is called. What do I do?
I'm on openSUSE 11.1 KDE 4.3 RC, and I'm using the kde-branding-openSUSE with KDM from the factory KDE repo, and factory community repo - everything is up-to-date.For some reason my KDM login settings screen is ALL grayed out, so I can't change the theme/settings. I know that you can change it by going to yast and editing the /etc/sysconfig thinghich I actually tried doing, and failing, which is odd because I changed it once a ltime ago to glassified, but can't manage to do now...) I don't want to use a theme, though, but actually use my current wallpaper and set the settings in the login manager to something of my preference.
So, here's the story: I did some messing about with the ambiance-maverick-beta theme and it worked fine, but the login screen, missing the default Ambiance theme, defaulted to Clearlooks. Clearlooks. So, I tried upgrading to Maverick, thinking it would default the login screen to the new themes. No such luck.
I just installed successfully Wheezy, but I can't change my Login Window Theme.I put the three files (.desktop .xml and.jpg) in/usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow/),I think that my mistake is here but I don't know where to put the .xml file and the .jpg files.And the I edited the file/etc/gdm3/greeter.gconf-defaults.The background is well-displayed but the "theme" is still the same.
For some reason, from time to time on login, as my normal theme starts to load, it changes to some sort of silver theme (a very basic one), and I am unable to change it over to any other theme. Checking the theme being used, it still says my desired one is set, but it is not. Also, no matter what theme I change it to, that basic silver theme is the one being used. This includes a default icon theme, not the one I prefer.
The only option that seems to fix things is a restart, and the hope that on this login it won't mess up like before.I am using Natty, from a fresh install, with Ubuntu Classic as my desktop, and have reinstalled things more than once to try and fix a few of the Natty-related issues, but this one keeps coming back.

I recently downloaded a login theme, extracted the archive and in the INSTALL file it says: Use 'gdmsetup' to install.I typed gdmsetup in terminal but command not found message returned. Anyone knows how to set up this theme?
How you can change you're gdm gtk3 theme with fedora 15. Prerequisite: gnome-tweak-tool and a terminal (gnome-terminal) Open gnome-terminal:
Code: su - ( 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
Code: yum install gnome-tweak-tool Now we make the gdm user available to make changes:
Code: # xhost +SI:localuser:gdm If you did this right you get this message:
Code: localuser:gdm being added to access control list Next we will fire up gnome-tweak-tool
Code: # 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: Code: # 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: Code: # exit (ps the # sign is the sign you're running the command as ROOT don't copy it!!
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

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'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?
I want to change the login screen in Fedora 10. I know in previous versions gdm manager or something like that was used to change this. I have a theme file that I downloaded from Gnome-look, but I can't use it in Fedora 10 because gdm wasn't included in 10 or something?How can I sort this, and does anyone know if gdm is making a return in Fedora 11?
i'm running F15 with the Gnome 3 shell and also changed the shell's style to a theme called 'Zukitwo', it can be found here..
follow the instructions in the 'Install' document closely, i found after installing a different package manager called 'Yum Extender' which made things simpler for me, i installed the 'Gnome tweak tool', 'gnome-shell-extensions-user-theme'' and 'gnome-shell-extension-common'', but i also had to install the latest 'Murrine GTK2 engine' for the 'Zukitwo' theme to be recognised in the 'Gnome tweak tool', the location i chose to copy the Zukitwo folders to was.. /home/your username/.theme I'd like to now change just the style of the Fedora 15 login window(as in username/password popup box), but without changing my background wallpaper that being used, i have found a 'login' box style from a website below which i'd like to use.
is changing just this part of the 'login' box style possible without altering the exsisting background, and how might this be done?
