Hello all, recently I updated my 64studio Beta 3.0 from hardy repos, after I did this all was fine for a about a day and the other day I booted up 64studio, and my login screen was ubuntu's screen with the blue login and the yellow flower, now that is not 64studio's theme... lol I also have this error when I first get to my login GDM screen Can't open file /usr/share/gdm/themes/64studio/64studio.xml. Thats strange, I have looked for this file but its not there, maybe the update deleted it. I have looked for these files on my 64studio DVD disk, I tried to dpkg -i gnome-themes and ubuntu-gdm-themes, and it doesn't fx this, what can I do to fix this. It seems something is rotten somewhere, I know Beta is well.. Beta lol, so I'll have to deal with this for the time being :) In summary my 64studio GDM login pic is not there anymore and nowhere to be found, and my 64studio Gnome themes are gone too. Thanks

Hi amadeus, 64studio-themes are part of the 64studio package, make sure it wasn't removed with your upgrade. $ apt-cache policy 64studio 64studio: Installed: 3.0~pre10~hardy1 If you look in synaptic, right click on a package, select Properties > Tab Installed Files, you will see the files included in the package. The 64studio package shows the 64studio-theme files. Your gdm.conf has defaulted to: GtkTheme=Human (ubuntu) but I'm thinking this is not selected so it's falling back to the Debian theme, the "yellow flower" one you mention. You can select the theme you want at the login menu options. If the 64studio package is already installed you could try reconfiguring it with: $ sudo apt-get --reinstall install 64studio Cheers! Dave.

Hi amadeus, Check to make sure the default-display-manager settings are ok: use cat: Mine shows: $ cat /etc/X11/default-display-manage /usr/sbin/gdm Edit with: $ sudo gedit /etc/X11/default-display-manager /usr/sbin/gdm Paste the contents of: $ gedit /etc/gdm/gdm.conf Into paste.ubuntu.com and post the link back here to the forum What does this command return: ls -a /usr/share/gdm/themes Cheers! Dave.

Hello Dave, and thank you for your reply $ cat /etc/X11/default-display-manage /usr/sbin/gdm - Mine returned the same as yours. My Paste from gdm.conf is at http://paste.ubuntu.com/143024/ What does this command return: ls -a /usr/share/gdm/themes Returned (circles happygnome happygnome-list Human HumanCircle HumanList) Also If did notice my 64 studio Gnome themes are missing as well. The update messed up my 64studio custom tool bar, and well it was messed up lol. That is it a piano picture right? anyway with the tuning key, that pic is still there, maybe its a guitar though I play one it doesn't look like one though. :) Thanks for your time :)
