Description:

This is a set of GDM's/Wallpapers made to match my GTK themes "Shiki-Colors" and my icon themes "GNOME-Colors".

There are 7 versions included: (Brave/Blue, Human/Orange, Wine/Red, Noble/Purple, Wise/Green, Dust/Chocolate and Illustrious/Pink)

The GDM themes have a max resolution of 2140x1200 and support all 16:9, 16:10, 5:4 and 4:3 screen ratios or anything in between. Sources for a Dual-display 3840x1200 version are included.

Must read, or clowns will eat you:
* To install GDM's, extract .tar.gz file, drag n' drop desired themes to the login preferences window, or run make install as administrator in the extracted folder. For more options, type make help.

* To use the included wallpapers, save them wherever you like and add them through GNOME's appearance preferences or run the make install command and they will appear there.

* If you replace the logo.png files, you can change the logo of the GDM's to your favorite Linux distribution's branding.

* If you replace the "bg.png" files, you can use any wallpaper you want! (in fact, I recommend it if you don't like the included backgrounds, or want the GDM's to feature your favorite wallpaper).

* In Ubuntu, you can use the official PPA repository for easy installation and upgrades. For Ubuntu Karmic Koala, you can simply run apt-get install arc-colors to install from Ubuntu's universe repositories. The packages are also available in Debian Sid.

* Visit the GNOME-Colors project page for bug reports, feature requests, SVN and more downloads:
http://code.google.com/p/gnome-colors/

* Consider donating a small amount to the GNOME-Colors project if you wish to support it, or to show your appreciation. You can do so by clicking on the "donate" button next to the download section.

Usplash... Usplash... Usplash... only ubuntu...

Maybe somebody can think about other distros? For example Fedora? ;)
Fedora 10 have Plymouth (something like Usplash), well... You can also create theme for plymouth.

Ubuntu is moving to Plymouth in Jaunty+1 and there will be semi official packages for Jaunty all though it won't be default until the one after.

In fedora 9, i can't find any gdmsetup that it's used to change gdm theme. How this work on fedora 9 or later gnome 2.21?

it's all because gdm is rewritten since gnome 2.21 :(

All of the GDM's are dark versions. If it's regarding the wallpaper, you can just replace bg.png with your favorite wallpaper. I don't include a dark wallpaper, because dark gdm on dark background makes the shadows blend in and everything looks a lot flatter.

Workaround for long localizations (especially "Suspend" button) - remove button's labels and make buttons a little lower and closer to each other.

It's just a workaround - not a wish to change theme.

I tried separating the buttons and giving the text more space, can you try again and see if it still shows up badly in your locale?

Still badly. But I have an idea:

Is it possible?

That's not a bad Idea, but the problem is that I don't think there's a way to add tooltips to the buttons. While most people would understand what the icons mean, there would still be some that would be confused as to what each thing does.

I'll try to keep looking for a workaround, but for now the best solution is to simply edit the xml file and change the label for suspend into a shorter word for it in your language.

I lightly changed XML file - http://dl.getdropbox.com/u/120741/Arc-GDM.xml.
Buttons now have "tooltips".

In general, I don't need "Suspend" button at all, cause I use Ubuntu on my desktop PC. I just like to learn something new.

:D Still lovin this set. I actually just reinstalled Ubuntu (long story) and I can't stand not having this set :)

On a side note, I've gotten numerous comments about how pretty the background is.

I would really like a dual screen version of this wallpaper. It looks a bit stretched out across both of my monitors and creates a slight inconsistancy between the login window background and the background of the two monitors. (i would actually even be happy if you just released two copies of the green wallpaper glued together into an extrawide double image. I can't figure out how to do it in gimp without having cracks and white space.)

mm what kind of dual screen setup do you have? I have NVIDIA's dualview and the GDM only appears in the main monitor. There should be no reason for it to stretch, since the second monitor appears blank until after you login.

yes it only shows up on one screen and the gdm is fine. I'm only talking about the wallpaper for the desktop once I'm logged in. It's stretched out across both screens and is therefore a different image than the gdm screen. I wanted to make one image to the effect that I had one copy of your wallpaper on each monitor. but there's no way to do that in preferences in gnome.

Well, considering that there are all kinds of resolutions and possible combinations, it would be impossible to include a dual screen wall for every scenario.

What you can do, however, is tile the wallpaper. Simply resize it in gimp to the resolution of your main monitor, and select "Tiled". This way the wallpaper won't be stretched anymore.

As I mentioned above, I'm almost done with an user-list version. I'm just wondering if it's normal for the profile pictures not to show up.

Pardon me for my bad english.

Perfect!!! This is what I was missing in my "Shiki-Colors" desktop! I love them! Thank you very much!!

PS. Also, a list version of these GDMs would be great too! It could be easier for guest users to just select the username and type password.

I'm almost done with a list-based version. I'll upload it later, but is it just me or do the users always show up as the icon for a person instead of the user picture? I've seen samples of other GDM's where the user picture shows up in the user list, but in my PC the users always show up as a GNOME icon representing a person.

If anyone can enlighten me on this, I'd appreciate it before I release the user-list versions.
