Customize login screen on FC9


How can I cahnge the user icons, and the login splash page on FC9? I have read there is something called GDM manager in older versions.

Basically I want to have my own background and users pictures.

Thanks.

Upgrade your Fedora 9 first.

I think it should have been fixed by now

All updates applied. What should I be looking for?

There is nothing under the admin area, and there is no gdm command line tool for starting gdm manager.

Do I need to install some package?

Thx.

I don't believe this has been addressed yet. I was not able to customize GDM in FC9 and still can't with a fresh FC10 install. I will keep looking though.
