Custom theming for greeter

Asked by vkrajacic89 on 2014-01-04

I can't seem to find the file that defines the layout of the login screen. I believe it used to be in usr/share/lightdm-gtk-greeter/greeter.ui. How do I modify the layout of the login screen? I am using debian - jessie

This changed a while ago. The UI is now compiled into the binary to prevent crashes sjhould the UI file not be in /usr/share/......

The only way yo change this now is to patch the source before compiling.

In Arch, you can do this by using the AUR packages and add your patch there.

CHeers.

Can you help with this problem?
