How to change login screen of ubuntu 10.10?

Here is a way to change the looks of your login screen, it allows you to change the background, fonts and GTK theme using the Appearance Manager.

First open a Terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) then copy+paste the following line:

sudo cp /usr/share/applications/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop /usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow

Now close the Terminal window and logout, when logged out the Appearance window pops up. Here you can make the changes you want and when your done you can login as usual. To prevent the Appearance Manager from opening when you login, open a Terminal window (Applications -> Accessories -> Terminal) then copy+paste the following line:

sudo unlink /usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop
