How do you change the Log-in Wallpaper in Natty 11.04?

Asked by Wyn on 2011-04-30

I upgraded to Natty 11.04, before I can change the log-in wallpaper (were you select your username and enter your password) using GDM2. I still even have the installer save but after upgrading, gdm2 was remove in my system and I can't install my gdm2 installer (it has an extension .deb, I think .deb are not supported in Natty anymore).

Is their an Apps that I can install that works like my old GDM2 so I can change the log-in appearance in my Natty?

Thank you in advance.

Assume your package is gdm2 setup, although it's older and unsure if it can be recommended for Natty.

Natty is still capable of installing .deb files.

Install gdebi.
To open it in Unity: Super+a, type gdebi.

Changing a theme in Maverick by this tutorial kept it working after upgrade to Natty.

Hi Sam,

I already have gdebi.

I tried installing gdm2 and displays this error msg

"Error: Dependency is not satisfiable: python (< 2.7)"

I guess it is not supported anymore by Natty.

Any idea how you can install these log-in themes?

If not my last option will be following this tutorial you give me:
