Description:

Stunning Gnome GDM logon theme, matching Gnome Splash and wallpaper image for Linux Mint 3.x or 4.0 (Daryna.) Looks striking and professional on any recent Linux Mint version from 3.x to 4.0

Save the file, and right-click to extract the contents. Inside the new folder, you'll find the GDM theme (as a tar.gz archive ready to install; the wallpaper image, and the Gnome Splash.

To install the GDM theme, save the tarball somewhere in your home directory. Open Mintmenu and navigate to Administration --> Login Window. Click the tab for 'Local' then click the 'add' button. Navigate to where you saved the tarball. Click the little circle radio button adjacent to the theme's screenshot.

To Install the Gnome Splash, Open Mintumenu and navigate to 'Preferences' --> Splash Screens. In the applet that opens, click add, then browse to the Gnome Splash *.png file. Click to highlight the file, and select 'Actavate'. Close the applet.

I should hope you know how to install a wallpaper! :-)

Enjoy the Theme (and provide feedback)

Very nice but ...

I understood everything except the SPLASH SCREEN directions.

I'm using Linux Mint 4.0 Beta 021 and I cannot figure out how to set the SPLASH SCREEN ... HELP !!!

I'm sorry I didn't reply to you sooner. I'm not running Linux Mint 4.0 myself, but, I'm assuming that it doesn't come with the Gnome Splash Screen manager installed by default. This little program (which I describe in my instructions) makes managing gnome splash screens a snap. To install it, open Synaptic package manager and search for "gnome splash". That should locate the package called gnome-splashscreen-manager. Mark it for installation. When installation is complete, you can invoke the program by searching for it in your MintMenu (Daryna menu) or simply type ALT+F2 and typing "gnome-splashscreen-manager". If your search in Synaptic reveals the gnome-splashscreen-manager is already installed and my instructions didn't work, then you can always install new splash screens the rough and dirty way. Open a Terminal and type "sudo nautilus". When the file manager opens, browse to /usr/share/pixmaps/splash. Locate the splash screen you see when you log in and rename it to filename.png.bak (assuming "filename" is whatever the file is named.) Next, copy in the new splashscreen; rename it to filename.png (where filename equals whatever you just renamed.) Close everything and logout, then back in again. You should see the new splash! Yay! I hope this helps. Please let me know if I can assist you further. Cheers!
