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??
I've been searching in google and in this forum on how to change the default gnome login screen in OpenSuSE 11.2?Have read harindaka's thread (How to Downgrade GDM in openSuse 11.2 to one used in 11.1 - openSUSE Forums) but it seems there's no guide for changing the login screen.
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 am on Ubuntu 10.10 64-bit version (Gnome). I am running an NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT graphics card with the NVIDIA proprietary drivers. I have dual screens running at 1920x1080. I am dual booting with Windows 7 but I don't think that should make a difference (BURG is my bootloader). When I first boot up into Ubuntu and log in, my desktop looks just great, like this: But if I log out then log back in, my theme reverts to a grey blockish theme that seems to be reserved so weak video cards or something like that. I'm somewhat new to Ubuntu desktop. This is what it looks like:
I recently upgraded from Ubuntu 10.10 to 11.04. My hardware can't support fancy effects, so I'm using the "Classic (no effects)" desktop.When I logged in, all programs would be themed in one way, then 15 seconds later everything would change to a different theme. Neither of these themes was the theme that I had selected in the configuration. I came here to ask for advice, but discovered this first:http://www.romaco.ca/blog/2011/02/20...s-with-ubuntu/Summary:gnome-settings-daemon has a race condition that is triggered if it starts too fast.
Workaround: in /etc/xdg/autostart/gnome-settings-daemon.desktop
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 recently went through a desktop crisis after removing unity from 11.04, installing openbox, hating it, and then installing Gnome 3. What's weird is certain applications like chrome and some other system things appear to use the theme I have (as in, they look nice) but windows like terminal, file browser, and most other applications including the default log in screen all look like windows 95.
you can see the square unstyled buttons. I'm just wondering how to apply a full on system theme to apply to all windows in gnome 3. tweak-gnome didn't look like it could do it, and after running through the themes (redmond, clearlooks, etc) they didn't have any impact on these windows.
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.
Whenever i try to apply a new theme .. everything seems to be ok except the gnome menu ... sometimes when applying icons, depending on the theme you can see it has applied almost everywhere except when u go to "Places" the icons there in the gnome menu is still on default.. have a look at the screenshot here..
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 tried applying an emerald theme yesterday, and when I did, it somehow affected the login screen, now it looks old and crappy like win98. I tried disabling emerald and even uninstalling it, but the login screen remains crappy, how do I get it back to the way it was?
Using LTS 10.04. How do I change my boot splash and login screen? (in the past I would). It was just system->admin->login screen but all the options are missing! See attached screen shots.
Tried to reinstall it. xxx@xxxx:~$ sudo apt-get install gdm-themes Reading package lists... Done Building dependency tree Reading state information... Done Package gdm-themes is not available, but is referred to by another package. This may mean that the package is missing, has been obsoleted, or is only available from another source E: Package gdm-themes has no installation candidate
Ubuntu changed something and I don't what it is (I cant even figure what to search for) - The first screen is my desktop system->admin->login screen - The 2nd is what should be there. system->admin->login screen
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?
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?
downloaded and installed Gnome 3 on top of Ubuntu 11.04, Gnome 3's login screen appears and offers the following login options: Robert/Automatic Login/Other. Selection get nothing except the audio signal.
Have Login/restart/suspend in the upper right corner. Alt-f2 gets me to root login, except my 11.04 root login and password isn't accepted, so can't get in a root. I think that it is the Gnome GUI, as I have seen something about installing Compiz etc. I could just reinstall 11.04 or 10.10 for that matter, but hate to give up. So, if I could find out how to bring up the termainal, and then how to get to where I could add compiz or something??
