Description:

This is a set of GDM's/Wallpapers made to match my GTK themes "Shiki-Colors" and my icon themes "GNOME-Colors".

There are 7 versions included: (Brave/Blue, Human/Orange, Wine/Red, Noble/Purple, Wise/Green, Dust/Chocolate and Illustrious/Pink)

The GDM themes have a max resolution of 2140x1200 and support all 16:9, 16:10, 5:4 and 4:3 screen ratios or anything in between. Sources for a Dual-display 3840x1200 version are included.

Must read, or clowns will eat you:
* To install GDM's, extract .tar.gz file, drag n' drop desired themes to the login preferences window, or run make install as administrator in the extracted folder. For more options, type make help.

* To use the included wallpapers, save them wherever you like and add them through GNOME's appearance preferences or run the make install command and they will appear there.

* If you replace the logo.png files, you can change the logo of the GDM's to your favorite Linux distribution's branding.

* If you replace the "bg.png" files, you can use any wallpaper you want! (in fact, I recommend it if you don't like the included backgrounds, or want the GDM's to feature your favorite wallpaper).

* In Ubuntu, you can use the official PPA repository for easy installation and upgrades. For Ubuntu Karmic Koala, you can simply run apt-get install arc-colors to install from Ubuntu's universe repositories. The packages are also available in Debian Sid.

* Visit the GNOME-Colors project page for bug reports, feature requests, SVN and more downloads:
http://code.google.com/p/gnome-colors/

* Consider donating a small amount to the GNOME-Colors project if you wish to support it, or to show your appreciation. You can do so by clicking on the "donate" button next to the download section.




Changelog:

2.7 (2009-08-03)
* Update color palettes to match latest shiki/gnome-colors.

2.6 (2009-07-14)
* Add new Pink (Illustrious) color variation.

2.5 (2009-07-04)
* Update shutdown, suspend and logo icons to latest gnome-colors.
* Brand new wallpapers! Darker colors for less eye-strain and support for any
resolution or screen ratio below 2140x1200px.
* Project now moved to SVN, makefiles and updated documentation are included.

 New Wallpapers

New wallpapers with support for more resolutions and sources for dual displays are now included.

If anyone prefers the old and long-time used backgrounds, they are in the project page's downloads tab or in the subversion history.

Thanks, the new wallpapers are based on work by Jonathan Heathcote, who relicensed his work for use with the project :)

More credits and author information in the AUTHORS file.

 Night-time GDM's

 
 by perfectska04 on: Jul 7 2009

I've finished working on a night-time version of the new wallpapers, based on work of the same artist - so it's very consistent with them.

I know for wallpapers, animation could be implemented in xml, but can it be done in
GDM? Something like specifying bg.png for daytime and bg-night.png for night time?

I just don't know how it could be
implemented into GDM. If anyone has any ideas, feel free to let me know!

Just what I was thinking, although I've no idea if it's even possible with current GDM.

If anyone has any tips on implementing this, let me know.

NOTE:
This is probably the last release for Arc-Colors. The new GDM framework does not support GDM theming and currently has no graphical tools. Ubuntu was the last major distributuon holding on to the old GDM framework, but this will be changed for Ubuntu Karmic. The wallpapers will probably just be merged with Shiki-Colors in the future.

There are bugs already filed, and GNOME developers already have their hands full with this - so it's best not to make things worse and just adapt to the new GDM and wait until the developers can work their usual magic in the future.

Where did you see this? I just Googled "GDM" and found nothing of the sort. If this is true, then I'm gonna say it right here, right now -- the GDM team is making a HUGE mistake, especially since these represent this GDM theme at its best. Please, say it isn't so!

The changes actually happened a few releases ago, Fedora and other distributions have adapted to the new design. Ubuntu has just been using a very old GDM version, which is not ideal from a security/technological standpoint.

Yes, it's a regression - but surely in the future theming abilities will be brought back. Perhaps not for Karmic, but you may be able to select things like wallpaper/gtk/icons to be used at login.

Thanks, enjoy!

Although a script to make everything random sounds really interesting. Imagine every time you log on, having a different color variation for gdm/gtk/icons/wallpapers, you never know what you're gonna get.

I tried making a light version a long time ago, but it didn't go well with the design. You can probably just use the wallpapers and paste them over another GDM theme with a lighter design.
