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?
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 want to apply the mac4lin GDM theme, and get rid of the splash screens and xsplash, when i follow instructions on internet they telly to log out, and hit ctrl-alt-F1, but all i get is confuzzled screen with random colors...here is link: [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.
Today I decided to customise my Ubuntu by installing my own picture over the default picture used in the log-in screen. I did a search and found it (in /usr/share/backgrounds). I looked into it a bit and found that the image was a .jpg with the name changed to a .png extension. I though I copied the title of it but must have hit the wrong button.
I put my picture in the folder. I then copied the name of the file, then deleted it. I went to paste the name over my new picture, and then found that I had hit the wrong button to copy it. When I delete things I usually hold shift to perma-delete it, so it isn't in the bin. Oh btw, I did this before in 10.04 and it worked in case anyone wants to do the same. It just needs to be a .jpg file, renamed to end with .png
I am trying to change the text on the login screen (below the ubuntu logo) where it says Ubuntu. This is so I can replace the word with a random phase/personalise it for who the computer is for with there name etc.
I installed Natty some time ago an was happily using it...Still am... But I decided to install some extra backgrounds. Now my login screen has changed to a WhiteOrchid.jpg?? how to set this right again? Or change it to a picture of my choosing?
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.
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.
I don't have System > Administration > Login Window > Local Tab because I wanted to change my login window I cant change it because I dont have Login window preferences. I do have login screen but I cant change anything graphical there. I am running linux 10.04 LTS.
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.
is there a way to change the gdm login screen (either the background image or the text in the login window) from the command line?i'd like to check several things at boot and report that on the gdm login screnn.
