and don't even think about having it on a 640x480

Using Karmic 9.10. Could you provide a guide to install this theme(& others). I tried using this method http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1333683
Trying this method on other themes don't give the right result!

You need to be using an older GDM version to use any GDM theme really. Not sure how to convert back to an old version or if it is even a god idea?

The reason that the blue one isn't recognised is because all the files need to be in a folder in the archive. Just open the archive, put everything in there into a folder, and make a new .tar.gz out of it.

Hi,

After installing this screen I just have a brown screen that shows the login screen is trying to load, but it just stays there. How do I get around that???

when it got stuck while the login screen is loading...
Go to text login by ALT+CTRL+F2
if you want gui desktop now...
$ sudo /etc/init.d/gdm stop
$ startx

but we don't need gui to fix it...
$ ls /usr/share/gdm/themes
$ sudo rm -rf /usr/share/gdm/themes/nUbuntu

$ grep -E ^GraphicalTheme /etc/gdm/gdm.conf
showing GraphicalTheme=Human

$ grep -E ^GraphicalTheme /etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom
showing GraphicalTheme=nUbuntu

$ sudo nano /etc/gdm/gdm.conf-custom
search for "nUbuntu", replace it by "Human" as this is the default theme for Ubuntu 8.04

restart your computer or restart gdm: $ sudo /etc/init.d/gdm restart

Yup, same issue here. I'm dual booting both the 64 and 32 bit Intrepid at the moment, and while it was OK on the 32 bit, it caused the login problem on my 64 bit install. Had to delete it manually to be able to login.

Pretty theme, one of the nicest I've seen, but too problematic at the moment to recommend to anyone other than experienced users. Looking forward to seeing it fixed.

Got around this by running the live cd and removing this theme's folder.

The previous comment was related to gnome. I have personally tested it on intrepid.

If the gdm loads forever, then here's the fix. Just copy the en translation file over to human theme.

sudo cp /usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc /usr/share/themes/Human/gtk-2.0/gtkrc.en

The problem is that it loops until this file is available. something like:

Is the file available?
No
How about now?

I have found the solution:
Extract the themes and get rid of the gtk folder in both of them.
Copy in /usr/share/gdm/themes and then select them from the login window, then they will work fine. :))

I works.. ok.. but each time that I start my Intrepid, I have time to go to a market, buy coffe, prepare it, and come back to work.. and sometimes I have time to can clean the dishes.

Just sits there on Intrepid, good thing I had auto-login configured for my user so restarting my computer got me on around it. The blue one gives me "Not a valid theme archive". It looks really nice though.

Great GDM, but makes Hardy hang... Oh! and I never did get the blue one to work on feisty; just wouldn't install.
