Gnome 2.32.0 -- login screen & gdmsetup [Solved]

Postby Joecanadian » Thu Dec 09, 2010 17:41

After this morning's update, the login screen has reverted to gnome default and gdmsetup seems to have disappeared.

5.4 (x86) + Limbo
xf86-video-ati

Yep new gnome and new gdm was added to Limbo for testing.

We need to make a new theme for it.

Cool. I reckoned it was likely a "testing" thing. Thx.

FWIW -> It caused a bit of an xdm snafu on initial logout. Rebooting produced the default gdm login screen.

Yeah, I added some basic theming. But new gdm seems a bit a regression, no theming support and reworked configuration files syntax. It's still experimental and I'm not very convinced of keeping it. 2.20.1 works so well...

I just see, that limbo goes back from gdm 2.32.0 to 2.20.11 - a step I won't go.
The new gdm is much more comfortabel, no unnecessary dialogue, when switching to another display manager - and you can easily switch between the accounts. And most notable - the background brought also the correct background for locked sessions, so not anymore the green leaf background when entering your password in a locked screen.

Is there a way to lock the package, that a step back is not possible, so protecting the actual installed gdm 2.32.0 package?

Thanks in advance,

Karl

The background has nothing to do with gdm.
