This is a simple how to on changing you log on Screen. This is very easy way to add more eye candy to you Linux system. I do everything under Gnome GUI so lets get Started. Please read the agreement at bottom.
First off you will need to get some new login screens. I goto www.gnome-look.org
to get mine. Just look to the left side under content and click on GDM Themes. Pick one out or pick a few out, That's totally up to you.
Next we need to open the Login Window Preferences scrren so we can add our new theme or themes.
Click on System->Administration->Login Window
Now you will be promt to enter your password
Now you are at the Login Window Preferences Screen. Click the Local tab at the top. You should now be at a screen that looks like this one.
Lets go Over some of what you see.
Style - Set to Themed with face browser
Theme - This is up to you. Do you the want the same one over and over, or do u want it to rotate? I use Random from selected and then select the ones I would like to see. If you Choose this option put check marks next to the ones you want to appear.
Menu Bar - I suggest all 3 are checked
Welcome Message - Up to you if you want to put in a custom Comment.
Now lets install the new theme. Most themes that you download will be in tar.gz format. All you have to do is drag the file onto the screen where the other themes are. That's it, Nothing to it. If there in another format that's not drag and drop, Extract it and click the Add tab on right side. Goto where you had extracted it to.
