Description:

My second GDM theme, hope you like it.

The archive contains two versions of the background image, one in 4:3 and one in 5:4 (like 1280x1024). You can choose which one you like by creating a symlink.

Thanks for all the feedback. =)

This one was heavily inspired by the Avio-GDM theme (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php?content=37395) created by Tobias Oelgarte. The background image haZeblue (http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=37195) was created by Franziska Frannerts.

i really like this theme, but i'd like the source code to change the background to something more futuristic. is that ok if you email it to jamwaffles@googlemail.com. if not, then dont worry its still a really cool gdm and i use it all the time

Oops, didn't see your comment until now. If you want the source just download the package, it's in there. GDM themes are just plain XML files, nothing has to be compiled.

but...

Running Ubuntu Dapper Drake, originally on my PC it wouldn't install. I then installed manually, but GDM wouldn't allow it to work, and reverted me to my original theme. The avio looked similar, so I'm using that on my PC.

On my laptop, also running Dapper, it install's fine, and work's with GDM. Friggin' nice looking. One problem though, configuring GDM through this theme doesn't work properly. It keep's restarting GDM before you can make any adjustments.

Not sure what the problem is, can anyone else confirm this?

Hm, works fine on Dapper for me. I tried it on 3 different Dapper systems, 1 laptop and 2 regular PCs, without any of the problems you described. The only thing that occured to me is that the entry field is a few pixels further down the screen than in a previous version of GDM (Breezy), but that's all.

I like ur theme, but i ran into a problem...i tryed different gdm themes with user list, but none of them displays user avatars(though i set them in "About me" section).

That's strange, my avatar is displayed properly. The screenshot does not show it as it was taken with the gdmthemetester which ignores the avatars. Maybe it's because I set my avatar manually by copying the image to ~/.face and not with the "About Me" dialog (and my avatar does not show up in that dialog).

i do not know how it is called in "english" but in "german" it is under:

System -> Systemverwaltung -> Einrichtung des Anmeldebildschirms -> Sicherheit -> Benutzeralbum

It may be translated to:

System -> Systemmanagement -> Greeter Configuration -> Security -> User album

(This works for me under ubuntu brezy)

In english it's:

System -> Administration -> Login Screen Setup -> Security -> Show Face Browser

Although this has no effect on the Themed Greeter, only the Standard Greeer.

I don't suppose you're considering a whole theme to compliment this....

I'm afraid not, sorry. I only know (roughly) how to theme GDM and Metacity and everywhere I hear/read that GTK is way worse. Besides, I don't really have an idea what that theme should look like.

Very good! I just wanted to say it's good in 1280x800 (unlike many others).

Glad to hear that, although I must admit I didn't think about widescreen resolutions at all... lucky me. ;)

This is the best GDM theme that I've ever seen. Thank you for your effort!

I really don't like the grass. It's kind of... dead... and squished looking and a bit yellow. I like the colours in the background, and I like the GDM Theme, but I think you could use a different, but similar image.

It was the overall composition of the sky, clouds and the grass in this image that made me choose it, I liked it immediately. Tried a few others but they didn't fit well with the theme.

I liked the previous one more, it looked more 'clean'.
