    Making your login screen pretty?

    How do I make the login screen pretty? *I am using debian and it has the awful X login screen and I want to spruce it up with a background and a different color scheme or something. *

    Hi,
    You can use the gdmconfig tool, it lets you set your own background for the login screen.

    Does it have to be pretty? How often do you see it?

    I prefer the text login myself.

    If you use xdm this article might be interesting

    I would do what LiNuts recommended, also what I did was poke around /etc/X11/gdm/ and see what stuff I could toggle and tweak. That linux journal article that demian mentioned was real handy too. I remember reading it when it came out. Incase your curious here is an old screenshot of my gdm. (Incase your blind, thats a pink floyd cover)

    I still use runlevel 2 (in debian) runlevel 3 (in red hat), just did the gdm thing "just because."

    Thanks for all the info guys!!

    I looked at the info for the xdm (Thanks demian !) But, it looked too involved so I changed my sources.list back to testing and just broke down and removed xdm and installed kdm (kdm in unstable seems to be broke)

    Your login screen that is great but I have questions about what the app that is running along the left side is and how you got it to run that before logging in? Also at the bottom is a decode of an mp3 same goes for that. I thought I was not in the system until I logged in?

    Just install gdm or kdm, they are much easier to setup as a theme! Setting xdm is too much work ;D

    kdm in unstable has had some issues lately though.
