Hi folks!

I installed Gentoo a few days ago... one thing I loved was the customized boot-up and login screen that came with it. After I installed Gnome, I got this lousy login screen... I'd like to know how I can replace them with the ones I saw when I was using Gentoo's Minimal CD installation... At least the login screen, which was great.

Thank you.

PS. Merry Christmas :)

I'm not sure if the following is 100% correct because I am away from my computer, so I can't test it. But since you have Gnome, you probably use gdm. Try the command gdmconfig.

My system doesn't recognize the command and I could't emerge gdmconf* or gnomeconf*... Thanks ;)

Has to be done either as root or as a user who's added as a sabayonadmin.

For LiveCD GDM theme:
Code:
# emerge x11-themes/gdm-themes-livecd

And then select it in GDM preferences (should be somewhere in System -> Preferences menu, I'm not sure because I don't use Gnome anymore)
