login theme question..


hi all, i need a change from the red hat login screen (blue with redhat logo/plain blue with flower or the other one) the GDM set up gizmo offers for me to "install new theme" for this but can never find one, seems to want a file -GdmGreeterTheme.info that is inside a *.tar.gz. I have got a couple of themes from the web but none seem to contain the file in question.. I don't suppose there is a directory somewhere that can just hold a PNG or JPG of the right size, shape and name is there?
thanks in advance...

This might help you out on what you are trying to do:

First make an xpm image in 14 colors for 640x480 pixels.

You can use gimp to make a favorite picture or get a picture from somewhere. Then, do the following to convert the picture (ImageMagick is required.)

$ convert -geometry 640x480 -colors 14 filename.jpg filename.xpm


Then compress the 14-color 640x480 xpm file by gzip and copy it into /boot/grub.

Finally, edit /boot/grub/grub.conf as follows:


# Foreground color
foreground = ffffff

# background color
background = 000000

# Image to display
spalshimage = (hd0,0)/boot/grub/filename.xpm.gz

here's the full link to it: http://www.momonga-linux.org/docs/gr...4.html#sec-4-6

I hate it when I'm that far off the mark!
