Description:

A hopefully good looking theme for GDM Greeter. Suitable for any resolution from 640x480 to 1600x1200. Should also be useable with widescreen displays.

The first picture shows the new version 0.9.2, the second is the older version 0.5. Plz tell me if you dont like the new version and of course why you dont like it :P

The background image is from Franziska Frannerts and you can download it from this location: http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/stOrmgreen?content=35826

The third picture is from the experimental Avio-Sunshine-GDM, that features a lens flare effect. You should use at least a resolution of 1024x768 or it won't look good. I marked it as experimental, but it should be very usable, since it depends on the 0.9.2 version of the default theme.

Howto install it under Gnome (Ubuntu):

1. Download this theme (currently 0.9)
2. Open the "gdmsetup", also called "Login Window Preferences"
3. Open the tab "Local"
4. Use the "Add" Button and select the downloaded file.
5. Make sure you select the "Avio-GDM" in the List.
6. Close dialog and logout to see it.

Howto change the background image

1. Download the current version of this theme (0.9.2).
2. Extract it with the compression tool of your choice.
3. Navigate into the extracted folder and replace the "background.jpg" with the image of your choice.
4. Put it into a ".tar.gz" Archive again and you should have a theme with your own background. (plz don't change the directory structure)

This is just an option. If you have Gnome, you can run the dialog by "gksudo gdmsetup". In the Tab "Security" is that Option "User..."

Hope you find it...

Awesome. The only thing I noticed was if you switch users instead of logging out totally, it adds a "Quit" box to the GDM options and pushes some of them down outside the box.

Can you send me a screenshot of that problem? I never saw that before. Normaly all buttons should fit into the box. Look at the screenshot, the button for "Quit" is in german "Beenden" and it should fit into that box. So, please make a screenshot :o)

I really like this. I also like how you've managed to have all the GDM pieces in there, and in good format. I've not seen a really good gdm face browser for a long time.

It's "stOrmgreen". You can find it on kde-look.org in the section "wallpaper -> 1600x1200".

Hint: Use the search function on the right side to find it.
