Entrance theme support?

Bodhi actually uses LightDM as the default login manager these days.

Entrance has never been stable enough for us to support or we would use it.

Hi,

 

I installed Bodhi Linux 4.3.1-64. I have few problems with it, but overall it's ok. I love the look and appreciate the speed and flexibility and possibilities of  customization.

 

I would like to change the default starting theme, with this one: "https://www.enlighte...rg/p/1100010/" 

 

I don't find any /usr/share/entrance/themes folder on my system. So my first question is: are entrance themes supported?

 

Thanks for your help,

A big thank you to everyone who contributes to Bodhi Linux

Entrance themes are no longer supported -- this happened right before e18 started, if memory serves. Moksha makes use of lxdm for logging in. That theme deserves to be ported; it has been ignored for ten years. One login is sufficient for me.


Unsolicited advice for learning linux, that won't cost you anything

I don't remember what and when was discussed about the Entrance themes in the past. I was not skilled enough to understand that. Anyway I have found some info I gained some minutes ago:

 

1. I was able compiling the entrance engine from this link

https://git.enlighte...c/entrance.git/

2. I am not sure where the entrance theme you wish is possible to download. There is no link on the page you have mentioned.

3. After compilation I was able to logging with the default entrance theme, but I lost sound (maybe it needs to add something to the proper permission group. No idea)

4. This is the first time I have tried this theme. Maybe Jeff knows more.

EDIT:

@Jeff: unstable? 

If so, then I recommend change the lightdm-gtk-greeter background or theme according some info on the web. Maybe good start could be here:

Thank you all for your very quick answers!

 

Compiling is to much for me...

 

I'll look into LightDM to change the login page as I already use it on my Debian distro.

 

Thanks again and have a nice day!?  (it's 8PM over here)

For those who prefer GUI over CLI, install lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings:

If that was it, it was easy to find. I simply did a search for the file that was 404'd.
