Yes, it works but you have to unpack it manually to /usr/share/mdm/themes/ and in the unpacked theme rename the file GdmGreeterTheme.desktop to MdmGreeterTheme.desktop and in this particular file change the section name GdmGreeterTheme to MdmGreeterTheme. Then it works fine. (I tried http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ ... ent=139888)

SImply found a png image (to match my prefered desktop image and mdm image) and dropped it into usr/share/backgrounds/linuxmint-debian. Then renamed the image to gelsan_debian.png (with appropriate privs). I know my image will likely be over-written sometime with an upgrade but I'll change my image also a several times either side of those changes.
I just wish the default image could be a jpg file... they are soooo much smaller. Anyone know how to accomplish that feat?
Absolutely, positively DOES NOT work for me. I even used the GDM-flow you provided the link for. Changed GdmGreeterTheme.desktop to MdmGreeterTheme.desktop and changed [GdmGreeterTheme] to [MdmGreeterTheme]
/usr/sbin/mdmsetup does not acknowledge the /usr/share/mdm/themes/GDM-flow as a valid theme.

Trapper wrote:I note that when I uses the faces option for a theme that when I select a face it always highlights in mint's green. I have not found anything in the themes .xml to control the highlight color so the system default highlight color is apparently being used. I can change the selection highlight color on my desktop and in grub but I do not know how to do this in MDM. How can I change the default system highlight color or control the selection highlight color in my theme's configuration? Mint green simply does not mix well at all with my theme and faces.
I think the color is taken form the GTK theme being used. If anyone knows how to change the GTK theme used by MDM, pls let us know. Thanks.
Trapper wrote:A way to customize the GTK theme would prove to be useful. For me, it would even be more useful if I could override the highlight color with an entry in my theme's .xml
