    Hi
    No, but you can tweak manually;

    Hello,

    I followed these instructions but the only thing that has got to change is the background. I looked at the folders of the other issues already installed and have a common structure other than the theme you downloaded from gnome-looks.

    Hi
    So you solved your issue? If not what theme did you download?

    Hello jony127,

    I don't use GNOME so some information could be incorrect.

    You can change the default theme for gdm?
    Try running this command as root:
    Code:
    gdmsetup
    Click a add button and navigate to your theme.
    Now you can choose the theme and apply it.

    Good luck!

    Hello malcolmlewis,
    Hi
    That application was dropped some releases ago....
    Sorry, I didn't know that.
    the theme I'm testing is Arc-Colors GDM-Walls
    Looking at the site of that theme they say you can install this theme with this command:
    Code:
    make install
    Don't forget to run this as root.

    So extract the archief.
    Go into the folder "arc-colors-2.7".
    And run the command.

    I couldn't test it so it may not work.

    Good luck!

    Nothing that does not work, and leave the subject.

    One question why gnome took the gdmsetup?
