Description:

The setup utility that comes in Ubuntu Karmic (and many other Gnome based distros) is now missing most of the older GDM setup utility's functionality. This application puts the functionality back in the hands of the users through a familiar and simple GUI.

Features include: the ability to select auto-login, timed login, user picklist or prompted, login wallpaper (xsplash) and more.

This is being rapidly developed and more features will be added as fast as we can.

To add this app into your package manager (the prefered method of installation in Ubuntu or Debian based distros), execute the following commands from a terminal window:

sudo add-apt-repository ppa:gdm2setup/gdm2setup
sudo apt-get update
sudo apt-get install python-gdm2setup

The application will now update along with your other packages automatically and will appear in your System / Administration menu as "Login (GDM2Setup)".

thank you

i can confirm it works
nice software should be included into the ubuntu-desktop cause the gdm-login tools is a bit useless

:o)

Thank you for the kind comment. We are trying to get it into Lucid - but we had missed the deadline for the freeze - and so we are now attempting to give valid reason for an exception to be made in the case of GDM2Setup. If we can give a compelling enough reason, it might still be included.

I am using Lucid beta under vmplayer and tried to download and got this:
http://launchpad.net/gdm2setup/0.2/0.3/+download/gdm2setup_0.3.4.deb NOT FOUND
?
Tried on the Window side and got the same thing :(
Thanks !

go here and install the 5.0 all.DEB
https://launchpad.net/gdm2setup
Also this no longer changes the login background in "lucid Beta" there is a bug, I had to change the name of the background I wanted to warty-final-ubuntu and manually install it in background and replace default ubuntu background I think they have removed xsplash alltogther so gdm2 cant find a place to put the desired background and it is looking for bg_1600xsomething that was xsplash background but is no more !

Yes - thank you. The bug is now listed on the project in regards to the new beta and the xsplash issue. A new version with that resolved is expected within the week.

It has been pre-installed in Viper OS v3.0. Hope it helps support your program, I also used the program to change the login screen for Viper =)

Thank you for making such a useful program!
