I have a few issues with the GDM login screen. I am using CentOS 6.5 and installed GNOME. I was able to change the background of the login screen by replacing the
default.png image on the system.
Whenever the login screen loads, the "Appearance Settings" window shows - as if it is asking for a specific theme for GNOME. I really want this to go away...
- I cannot figure out how to change the icon loaded in the login panel, nor how to change the name of the OS on this same panel (CentOS 6.5).
Can anyone offer suggestions on how to make these changes? I've read a few articles on using the "Login Screen" manager, but I don't have that installed (and can't find it in the repo's).
EDIT #1: The first was solved by removing a link from within
EDIT #2: Looking in
/usr/share/gdm/gdm-greeter-login-window.ui, I found the following code:
<object class="GtkImage" id="computer"> <property name="visible">True</property> <property name="pixel_size">64</property> <property name="icon_name">computer</property> </object>
If I comment this chunk out, the icon disappears on the login window. However, I cannot figure out which file it is referencing. I did a
find / -name "computer*" and looked at every file this returned and none of them were the icon matching what is displayed.
Another interesting thing: I can change the
icon_name property from
start-here and the icon stays the same. However, if I change it to something more absurd such as
my-custom-icon, it shows a broken (perhaps default) image in its place. Again, I searched for any file named
start-here and they all are different.
