Change Login Screen theme

Change Login Screen theme

Postby c.monty on Sat Jan 26, 2013 9:41 am


After upgrading my LMDE installation with Xfce, my previously installed theme for the Login Screen is not available anymore.

I've downloaded the package "MintgreenMDM.tar.gz" and start tool "mdmsetup".
On tab "Local" I can see a selection of themes and the button "Add", but when I select the file downloaded previously, I get error message:
File is no tar.gz- or tar-Archiv

Then, I unpacked it manually to /usr/share/mdm/themes/MintGreen UserList
Code: Select all
user@pc2-intel /usr/share/mdm/themes/MintGreen UserList $ ls -l
insgesamt 496

The content of MdmGreeterTheme.desktop is:
Code: Select all
Name=Mint Green MDM
Description=A green Mint MDM-theme with a user list.
Author=Justin O'Shea (BBistheKing)
Copyright=Based on Simply Grace

Why does this theme not show up in the list in mdmsetup?
