Fedora :: How To Change The Login Screen In Fedora12
Nov 29, 2009
How to change the login screen in Fedora12.i found that the blue fedora login screen a bit boring and i've downloaded a MAC4LIN file but i don't know how to use it. Any way to change the login menu screen using this Mac4lin or other methods? My target is to create a MAC login screen.....????
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've tried to change the log-in screen on Fedora 15 (gnome3) to have a custom background, however none of the guides I've found have worked - I'm now left with a blue background with no image. They all follow the same instructions as this guide. (I did change the address and PID to my own ones, although the PID was always increasing everytime I typed it) If I type this into the terminal logged in as my user I just get my desktop background changing, although I'm assuming this is correct.
Just installed F11. Been totally frustrated all day and all night with resolutions and DNS bugs. I installed system-config-display so I can get my video working properly. However, my monitor says it's out of range only on the login screen. How can I change the resolution for the login screen to match that of my working environment?
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 tried to change the name of the default user I created when I installed Fedora 14 to" Administrator". That apparently succeeded, but the login screen still shows the original name I specified. How do I go about changing that. don't need to change the home directory or anything else for that user.
After trying to personalize GDM's login screen, I have been able to change the background (If anyone know how to personalize GDM's login screen, Sometimes when I go on the login screen, I see a gray box without anything on it (I try ALT+CTRL+F# and ALT+CTRL+BACKSPACE) but nothing is shown. (No user list nor white box to enter username). So I must restart while it doesn't appear. Here is what GDM's error log gives me ( /var/log/:0-greeter.log ) :
Code: Gtk-Message: Failed to load module "atk-bridge": libatk-bridge.so: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory (gnome-settings-daemon:1686): Bonobo-WARNING **: Bonobo must be initialized before use (process:1705): DEBUG: Greeter session pid=1705 display=:0.0 xauthority=/var/run/gdm/auth-for-gdm-dn4VnG/database (gnome-settings-daemon:1686): GdkPixbuf-CRITICAL **: gdk_pixbuf_format_get_name: assertion `format != NULL' failed
With the new changes to RHEL 6, and it being more inline with Fedora, how do you change the login screen background? I'm talking about the main login screen, not after you have logged in and need to change the desktop background. We use a custom background for machines in our lab, and need to implement this on 6.
Every time I log in, I get 5 alerts. When I check them out, there is nothing to see. Everything is blank. I'm tired of seeing this lousy popup each time I login. How can I fix this? Also, how do I change the systems default keymap to dvorak (before login screen)
Last night I have installed updates of plymouth themes and pidgin but some how what happens is that the updates have changed my system setting and deleted xorg.conf file and some other settings and i couldn't able to get login screen either.I have recreated it using #Xorg -configure but still I cant get Login screen and in the gui I only get a blank screen where cursor is blinking.
I have tried installing system-config-display and reboot the system after doing #system-config-display --reconfig --noui but it is still same still not getting login screen.
I have ati radeon xpress200 on board graphics card. I searched on google to how to install the ati graphics card on fedora12 and found that mesa-driver-experimental could be used for fedora12 but still after installing it I found no effect in fedora12 right now it is running on a basic vesa drivers that I have set in xorg.conf. With vesa driver I can able to login but when I have installed xorg-x11-ati drivers and then do system-config-display. I can see the login screen but after giving password. It just giving blank screen and return back to login screen and again asks for login. I can login through terminal with the same account but cant with the GUI. Now what to do to for that?
i used to have 9.10 but now upgraded to the latest version. Back then I changed the background to full black for both the preboot screen and login screen.Now after upgrading it changed it to the purple color screen. I am wondering how I can change back the background color?
one of the things i like about linux is its highly configureable.so how does one change the login screen?i dont see a gdm mgr in suse 11.1,however i do see a gdm mgr in the pkgs,so do i nstall this?or is there another way?i went to installthis pkg and a screen came up saying there were dependancy issues.
After upgrading to 9.10 I can't change my login screen, only edit the auto-login preferences. I have one I'd like to use already, and am unable to figure out how to replace the new login screen with the one I've downloaded. It used to be simpler in 8.10 which is what I used, there was a menu for it under System and Preferences.
I downloaded ubuntu 11.04 on my Pc.and i was woundering how to change the login screens ..bec it is my first time using gnome and unity thing, also how can i downlaod cool themes which cant be downloaded by appearance manager after being downloaded form gnome [URL]

I really hate 10.04's login screen. Ugh. And I don't like that it lists all the users on the box. What happened to those clean-looking login screens, that just prompt you to type a username? Can I change the login screen appearance, somehow? I seem to recall that was possible, though I can't find anything in the preferences.
