Change Login Screen On Ubuntu 11.04 “Natty Narwhal”

Changing your login screen works the same as Ubuntu 10.10 “Maverick Meerkat”.


To enable the Appearance manager at login open a Terminal window (press Alt+F2 and type: gnome-terminal) and 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.

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