A grey box for my login screen
Check out: http://www.ubuntumini.com/2009/09/ha...in-screen.html. The login screen that I want or that I originally had is the first pic on that post. My problem is that instead of the black background for the user logins, I have a grey background with a Computer logo instead of the ubuntu logo.
I already tried changing it using:
System->Preferences->Login screen setting
Following the above post, I thought that I could be able to change the GDM config screen to fit the old types, so I followed the instructions. Unfortunately, I got a few errors and I wasn't able to change the background. Here are the errors that I received: (within quotes)
I only have a Linux installation on my desktop. So, there is no dual boot with Windows. It's just Ubuntu 9.10 installation. The following is what I retrieved from using a session through LiveCD.
You should be able to safely ignore those errors and move on to the display screen with ctrl+alt+f7. Your preferences window should be open and by selecting appearances, you can select a background or change font, etc. The configuration is still fairly limited.
There are also a number of videos on youtube regarding gdm2. Some offer a ultility called gdm-setup, a graphical configurations tool for gdm2, and others go into more detail about how to use the method you are currently trying.
