Description:

This lock dialog was orginally designed by alex57373203 and updated by etalyc.I have just simply created and changed the backgroud image to something which I personally prefer and want to share. The original theme was an NSA lock dialog, so that is why 'nsa' is used in file names and the gconf-editor.

Install:
1) Open up a terminal and type:
sudo nautilus
2) Then navigate to usr > share > gnome-screensaver
3) Copy the files 'lock-dialog-nsa.gtkrc', 'lock-dialog-nsa.ui' and 'nsa-images' to the gnome-screensaver folder.
4) Press Alt+F2 on your keyboard and type in 'gconf-editor'. Click on apps > gnomescreensaver and change default to nsa. To revert back to the default lock dialog, simply replace nsa with default.
5) If you do not have a user display picture then you need to go into 'nsa-images', delete or rename 'nsa_bg.png', and rename the image 'nsa_bg.png.noiconn' to 'nsa_bg.png' (without apostrophes obviously).

An easier alternative for doing step 4 is to run this command in the terminal:
gconftool-2 -s /apps/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme --type string "nsa"

oh if you don't mind i can help make this easer for the newer Ubuntu users. simple deb or script install for them.

deb might be better

here is a start the comand to change in gconf-editor


gconftool-2 -s /apps/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme --type string "nsa"

run that in terminal and it sets it to your theme

I use a slightly modified version of the Overglossed gtk theme on my computer, but in the screenshot I was using the default Ubuntu theme as I used a virtual machine to capture it.

And btw, thanks for the terminal command you posted, I have implimented it into the install file. :)
