Question Problem with Login Window Theme


I have a Debian Squeeze on my laptop but, today I was trying to find on System > Administration the Login Theme Application and its not there. For what I been reading over the net the daemon is called "gnome-settings-daemon" and I don't see it either starting on my start up applications.

Any idea how I can solve this?

gnome-settings-daemon is not responsible for the login window theme. This app sets the user's preferences for GNOME after that user has logged into their desktop.

If you're referring to the login screen (the screen where you enter your username and password), on Squeeze it's called gdm3 (gnome display manager) which is actually a GNOME session that's run as the user 'gdm'.

Unfortunately, this screen is not themable anymore, but is in fact highly customizable.

If this is the screen you're referring to, please check to this thread:
