When you would have just googled for simply: "gdm" and "themes", you would have found that the second link already gives you what you're looking for. And the very first link gives you about 70 examples.

Please look for answers yourself before asking other people.

That is a horrible way for someone in the know to answer someone who is trying to learn.
But hey, as long as you provide links after you talk down to him, and prove how superior you are.

Community oriented would mean, being willing to help even if you feel it is beneath you. Also, if you are unable to help without showing your disregard and contempt for someone that is taking the initiative to learn Linux, then just don't comment.

BTW... the site is Linuxquestions.org .... not ubergeek.com so.... telling them to look before asking others is pretty lame.

MHO ... deal with it!

I do agree with you here. And I regret having reacted this way.
I guess I had a bad mood when I posted this. (to no excuse)

Good point. And I think I usually am willing to do that here.

I'm well able, and I think I often do in this forum.

No.
I believe that somebody who is able to register and post to a web-forum wouldn't think of a search engine, when he or she wonders what to read about gdm themes.

Why posting here then?
This is a programming forum, not some forum about how look for doc's on the web.

Coolio, I think we all go through those moods...

I see your points as well, I hope the original poster did as well and came back. This is a great community with many MANY intelligent contributors. I must confess I use more than I give.... but then again I'm still a 'newbie'. ;-)

I think I was merely surprised by the answer. It was nice that you gave them the links though, I have seen others post on other sites without including the links and merely flame the newbie.

No worries Hko.... have a good one...
