    Default Lightdm look and feel as in ubuntu or Mint ?

    Hi everyone,

    I installed the lightdm manager yesterday to give it a try. I was shock to see that it has in no way the look and feel of the ubuntu or Mint one. Am I missing something ? I would like something that looks like that (not the colours, but the login box, etc.) :

    What is the advantage of lightdm vs GDM (or KDM?)? I'm a bit skeptical about having yet another desktop manager -- but if there are benefits, I'd be interested. However, if it is just about making OpenSUSE look like Ubuntu/Mint (fill in any other distro, for that matter), then I don't see the point. (I know that doesn't really answer your question, but just my 2 cents.)

    You are shoked that not every distro uses by default the same
    configurations for appearance???

    As far as I understand lightdm uses a configuration file
    /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf
    so the easy solution will probably be to copy that file from an ubuntu
    installation and put it into your openSUSE (I guess you will also have
    to copy the appropriate background image to the proper place).

    It is not to make openSUSE look like ubuntu/mint. It is just for the dm, I don't like the gdm of gnome3. Not because it's ubuntu or Mint, I just like the look they gave to it, that's all.

    The word chosen is surely inapropriate, that is because of my not so perfect english. I should said " suprised ". I thought the look of lightdm was like that of ubuntu/mint by default.

    But thanks for the tip for the lightdm.conf file.
