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?
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.
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 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??
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.
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.
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.
I've noticed there are various plymouth themes (the booting animation sequence) on synaptic but I can't figure out how to actually my plymouth theme. I was using Ubuntu studio theme and now I changed but I can't change the plymouth theme. Is there a plymouth manager or anything?
plymouth theme doesn't display in linux mint. i mean not even the default plymouth theme. instead of it a blue screen with white text is displayed which looks really ugly. even if i change the theme to some other, the same screen displays. any ideas on what could be the problem and possible remedies? note: when at last i give the update initramfs command it displays a warning the en_IN is not supported.
I am using archlinux with gnome 3. I am trying hard to change my icon theme to human but it just doesnt change. ~/.gtkrc-2.0 [URL]. I tried lxappearance too. After I click on apply and close it gnome kinda restarts and when I open nautilus it shows no change. I had tango icon theme so I deleted that dir from /usr/share/icons. Now it has switched to the default gnome icon theme. How do I change it to Human icon theme?
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 am using opensuse 11.4 and i reinstalled it 4 days before.i have changed the cursor theme,login theme etc.after the reinstall i forgot how to change them.so please tell me how to change cursor theme,login theme,boot splash?
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 click unlock repeatedly but nothing happens... I ran it in terminal and got this

I am very new at Ubuntu, I only recently changed over from windows cause my computer was infested with a bagillion viruses. I have been trying to customize all my displays and I found a bunch of theme's for my login screen at the gnome web page, but i cant figure out how to implement them. It took me long enough to figure out how to change my desktop, but it seems there is no easy way to change the login screen. I got Ubuntu tweak, but that only allows you to change the background and the button, I was hoping to find a way to use the ones downloaded from the web. Does anyone know hpow to easily apply a gnome theme to your ubuntu login screen/boot menu?
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?
When I log in locally, sometimes my theme isn't applied. This problem started a few weeks ago, but before that the same theme would load just fine every time. In order to get my chosen theme to load, I go System > Preferences > Appearance. As soon as I click "Appearance"...boom. My theme loads and all is fine. I don't have to change settings or anything....just start the "Appearance" utility.
This doesn't all of the time, only sporadically. Another thing to mention is that I'm using AWN. When this happens, AWN doesn't load all of the launchers. I killall and restart AWN and all is good there. Anybody have a clue what could be going on? Compiz related?
really only have played around with it off and on. I just installed a new login theme usimg Slim (the Fingerprints theme) and now whenever I restart the virtual machine (using VMware player) it will let me type in my user name but it doesnt show my cursor and wont let me tab down to my password field so I cant get in and change it back to a different theme. Is there any way that I can fix this or will I need to reinstall the whole thing?
