Description:

I'm sick of people posting crap that doesn't even look like willwill's mockups. So, I took matters into my own hands this time.

If anybody can figure out how to get the face browser working the way he drew it, let me know.

enjoy :)

I've noticed the power/reset buttons don't really work. Both just reboot the GDM.

Were you aware of this bug?

Are you sure you don't maybe have an older version of GDM?

Everything is spelled correctly in the XML file, and I just tried it. It worked perfectly for me.

I found the problem. When I was setting up this GDM I unchecked by mistake the 'Show actions menu' option. This disabled the reset/power down functionality of your GDM.

Thumbs up once again!

I removed the face browser because it looked like crap. Currently it doesn't support alpha transparency.

I moved the user name more right.

but I still can't figure out what to do with that restart button without dramatically increasing the spacing.

I'm sick of people posting crap that, well...looks like crap! How can you stand those awful dark browns, black, and baby poop oranges??? Ibex had better offer some alternate themes if this is what they have up their sleave for the default. Yuck!

Sorry, I don't have the power to change ubuntu's color scheme, or I would. Will's mockups are the best looking use of Ubuntu's color scheme around, and that's what this is based on.

if you don't like, you can use another theme, it's the advantage of Linux, you can decide which theme you use. It's not necessary insult people's ideas

I don't know how to fix the reboot icon without dramatically effecting the theme in ways that would suck for other translations. I'll play around with it.
