Description:

(NOTE: because of the inclusion of the splash screen and wallpaper files, you need to first extract the "GNOMEBasicBlack.tar.gz" archive out of the downloaded archive in order to be able to install the GDM theme. I'm sorry for this extra step, but I preferred to keep everything together in one archive.)

I like black. Lots of black. So here is a GDM theme based on the basic "Ubuntu Human" theme (it uses same icons and basic layout) but it is black and is GNOME branded. I created this version to be more "generic GNOME" than my previous version for Ubuntu. (If you prefer it, the "Ubuntu Basic Black" version is over at Ubuntu-Art.org: http://ubuntu-art.org/content/show.php/Ubuntu+Basic+Black?content=81031)

Included in the archive are two splash screens and three wallpaper pictures (1600x1200, 1280x1024, 1280x800), all using the same basic logo. One of the splash screens is based on the "splash pack" by troseph (http://www.gnome-look.org/content/show.php/Splash+Pack?content=61272). Also included is the SVG image of the foot/logo and the troseph splash screen.

For people who prefer a little color, I have included a number of foot colors: blue, green, copper, red, teal, purple, maroon, as well as the original black. To change the logo, open the terminal, type "sudo nautilus", enter your password, browse to "/usr/share/gdm/themes/GNOMEBasicBlack/", delete "gnome.png" rename whichever other color file you want to "gnome.png". That should do it.

Feedback is welcome.
