    GDM Login Screen Configurator

    I'm on F9 and I dont seem to have the menu option for Login Settings where you can configure auto-login, gdm themes, etc. I've searched for just about every combination I can think of in yum but haven't found anything.

    So, does anyone know:

    a) Why its not in F9?
    b) What the name of package that provides this?

    Thanks

    Thanks seve, I'm actually just trying to change the gdm theme. I only mentioned the auto login so everyone would know what app I'm referring to. Any idea how to do this without the "login settings" app? Thanks

    Check http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Features/NewGdm

    Release Notes

    * Mention the new features that are available on the login screen
    * Explain that gdmsetup got replaced by a yet-to-be-written new configuration tool
    * Explain that PolicyKit can now be used to control shutdown/reboot privileges

    If you look in /usr/share/backgrounds/waves you will find what you are looking for. I might hack together a tool for changing the GDM background. If I get around to it I will put up a link here.
