. 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)
"** (gnome-control-center:19640): WARNING **:
error raised: [libslab_get_gconf_value: error getting /desktop/gnome/applications/main-menu/lock-down/user_modifiable_apps]
** (gnome-control-center:19640): WARNING **:

** (gnome-control-center:19640): WARNING **: get_actions_list() - PROBLEM - Can't load gnome-cups-manager.desktop"
Then the cursor just blinks. I don't see a prompt or anything. When I press <Alt> + <F7>, the "Login Screen" settings are still the same.
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.
sudo fdisk -l
Disk /dev/sda: 200.0 GB, 200049647616 bytes

Any idea what might be causing this?
