It's dated 2007 and will only run on Gnome2 so that answers your question. Hasn't it been updated since 2007?

As far as I know, the GDM on Wheezy is not very theme-able. This theme might have worked with older versions of GDM but not this one.

I might be wrong here though.

So, is it okay to rollback to GDM? Will it create any problems?
If not how do i change login screen in my debian.
This screen shot is for Gnome 3.2, and i have gnome 3.4.2 installed.

Problem with your screen shot:

Page not found
The requested page "/pictures_me/gdm%203.2.png" could not be found.
I don't see why you want to change your login screen. It changes to your own screen as soon as you login in. So why change it?

Most people do not try to copy and paste links posted here. Normally just clicking on the link should take you to the page. You probably used the "Insert Link" button incorrectly. If you click here, you will see that copying and pasting are unnecessary.

I think I did that back when I was using Ubuntu 10.04. It broke some functionality with ecryptfs utils if I remember correctly. I have always been frustrated with how unthemable GDM is. I have switched to slim - and I am quite happy with it. It is so simple that you can just take one of the provided themes and edit it yourself. I made my current login screen (just a plain black background with a simple text field) myself in like two minutes.
Installing should be as easy as just typing

Code:
sudo apt-get install slim
If I remember correctly the installer will then ask you which displaymanager you want to use - just select slim and you are good to go...
