Description:

Based on the CleanLinux GDM theme.

The wallpaper is by Dragonkahn at http://www.deviantart.com/deviation/528791/.

I'd like to thank all you nice people out there in Gnomeland who voted for my GDM theme, and the 37000+ who have downloaded it. It's nice to know I didn't waste my time. :)

I've change a little the background wallpaper so it has a Linux Mint in the middle. You can get it in 1366x768 and 1280x1024 here: http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=159908

BTW, awesome theme!

Using Karmic 9.10. Could you provide a guide to install this theme(& others). I tried using this method http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1333683
But it says invalid theme. Trying this method on other themes don't give the right result!

I love that dragon. then again, knowing where it came from is half the fun!

for anyone interested, take a look at Backtrack (Currently v3, with v4 pre-release candidate)

http://www.remote-exploit.org/backtrack.html

its a penetration-testing liveCD. I used it a few years ago when I was doing computer forensics stuff in college. really sweet cd to play with!

This login and the matching wallpaper go with my domain name perfectly.
Laptop is a Dell C610 named DragonFlight!

I'm going to have to look for a way to change the lid to look like this.

New emblem & either vinyl or paint.

Hey, just to let you know, the original artist has done a widescreen version of the background image (which I'm using, with your theme, on my machine here). You might want to make a widescreen version of your theme? The image just drops in :)

Thanks for sharing!

There is no graphic when one has to put in one's password to unlock the screen. When I tried it, it still showed me the login box/graphic from my earlier GDM theme.

Just fixed it. It took me a year to get around to it, but hey, better late than never, right? ;)

Here is a modified wallpaper. I bumped the coolness factor up a little by adding the word Linux in Japanese in lower right corner.

Since i'm on GNOME 2.14.1 your gdm theme isn't walking...

Report

is it normal that this wonderful gdm theme does not have the line "insert your password"?
the fact is, i see it asks me to dial my usrname, but, after pressing "enter", the form for the passwd asks nothing.
it is a small bug, can you fix it?
thanks!
grat theme anyway.

I made a small fix for this.
Just add:

<item type="label" id="pam-prompt">
<pos anchor="w" x="10%"/>
<normal color="#FFFFFF" font="Bitstream Vera Sans Bold 10"/>
<text/>
</item>

between
<box orientation="vertical" min-width="400" xpadding="20" ypadding="20" spacing="10">

and
<item type="rect">
<normal color="#000000" alpha="0.0"/>
<pos anchor="n" x="50%" height="24" width="80%"/>
<fixed>
<item type="entry" id="user-pw-entry">

a lot of people have installed this theme, so I must be doing something wrong.
When I try to install the .tar them file, I get a 'the file format is invalid' on this file.

what am I doing wrong?

other than that...can't wait to get it installed!

Have you installed the 'tar' and/or 'untar' packages? If you're using a Debian-based Linux, try 'apt-get install tar' in a console.

Thanks for sending me the splash screens. I've installed one of them, and it looks great! :D

If you haven't already done so, feel free to post it in the 'Splash Screens' section of gnome-look.org.
