Sadly, this greeter is no longer functional as of GDM 2.22, which means that modern GNOME distros can't use it.

See the sidebar to the right under "GDM Themes". There are instructions for applying GDM themes.

Unfortunately, I've not used Linux as my primary OS for years, so I'm not sure how things have changed or if this GDM theme still works on current distros with newer versions of GNOME (the GDM theme was created 12 years ago).

Had the same problem, but had it fixed for me. Just simple open das_mini.xml with a text editor and remove in line 18 alpha="0.5" this should do the trick. Just save and reinstall it. Hope I could help.

PS: Nice Theme. I like it.
and sorry for my bad english

The theme explicitly sets the background to #000000, which is black.

Have you tried adjusting your monitor? Maybe try adjusting your monitor's gamma or brightness settings.

Just open das_mini.xml located in /usr/share/gdm/themes/Sandbox/ with a text editor and change <text xml:lang="en"> simply into <text>

It should work ( well , work for me :) )

This theme roxx, like already said on deviantart ;)

What distribution and/or version of GNOME are you running?

There shouldn't be any errors pertaining to a label's text attribute.

the thing is... it must look good, that's the point.

so, guess i wil try, but in fact, there are some other minimalistic themes around here, just take a look, maybe one of these is more minimalistic than yours...

PD:sorry for my bad english! xP

GDM Themes

For applying GDM themes, there is this tool:
https://github.com/juhaku/loginized

Note Ubuntu uses LightDM, so you would need to switch to GDM first to use GDM themes:
