I must admit being away from GNU/Linux desktops’ evolution dealing everyday with CentOS and Ubunutu 10.4 via CLI. Distributions that, anyway, are far away from the frantic evolutions in terms of desktop environment UX provided by the most up-2-date trends.
But I’m preparing a virtual machine for a bioinformaticians’ post PhD course and we choose a modern distro for this. Given my skills and experience the choice went over Fedora.
So I’m playing a little around to see how the Gnome Shell behaves and decided, since I have some spare time, to customize it a little. I could not ever imagined in my wildest dreams that modifing GDM login screen would be such a PITA.
Luckily enough a 2010′s post from Alvin T. Enguillo is still the easiest method (and with this I’ve said it all if you read the article) to achieve this goal.
So, do you like the result?
