LightDM config

Anyone working on this? Layout etc

What about an offset login panel like the default waldorf, to accommodate dual monitors? This implies a plain background as well to prevent stretching. (AFAIK lightdm doesn't support tiling in the gtk-greeter)

Didn't hhh have a themed LDM login somewhere? So many threads it's har...

Ah here: http://crunchbang.org/forums/viewtopic. … 01#p418601

Looks well underway, though the widget is still mid-screen. We'll want to match the background, and grub's background, with whatever gets chosen as the default wallpaper I guess.

Re: LightDM config

Yup, the themes hhh has provided us with so far each include a gtk-3.0/apps/lightdm-gtk-greeter.css.  There's also a couple lines in the main gtk-3.0/gtk.css file defining the lightdm foreground and background colors, possibly as fallback if the greeter-specific .css isn't there/found.

Incidentally, the button colors for the shutdown and reboot dialogs in his dark theme could use a little less color.

/* Shutdown button is red on hover */
#shutdown_button.button:hover {
    background-color: shade(@error_bg_color,0.95);
}

/* Restart button is dark yellow on hover */
#restart_button.button:hover {
    background-color: shade(@warning_bg_color,0.75);
}

Not sure if this was intentional on his part or simply a holdover from the original theme he started with.  (I'm assuming he didn't write the entire theme from the ground up.)

Re: LightDM config

^I haven't paid much attention to it, to be frank, and I've never set the dark theme on my setup for LightDM. I need to do more testing when I have time. I want to focus on the Openbox theme next, I hate the "handles" on the bottom bar, and I'd like some hover effects on the buttons. Thanks for the tip, noted.

Re: LightDM config

Come to think of it, something might need to go in the bunsen-configs package.

Does the GTK theme configure everything about LightDM that needs to be configured?

Re: LightDM config

No. LightDM has its own config, /etc/lightdm/lightdm-gtk-greeter.conf where the theme. font, clock format, wallpaper, panel buttons, etc... are set, so a default config is needed here. Also, the settings in /etc/lightdm.conf are available, though the defaults seem fine to me.
