mhm, I'm sorry, I think I can't help you. When I was using the GDM Maker I never had this problem.

Sorry

hi Theeman

I thought your way of creating a GDM thing was just GREAT, because I have spent DAYS trying to create my own, making lots of mistakes, but learning a little bit along the way. I tried your script and immediately ran into trouble. As I understand it, the idea was to let you choose your own pictures to be included in the GDM? So I created a folder with a few pictures in. I also (for each picture) created both a BACKGROUND jpg and png, and a SCREENSHOT jpg and png. I created both png and jpg because I am not yet too sure just what the format of the pictures should be. I then left that folder open and in a terminal ran the script. This is the last few lines of the script copied and pasted from the terminal:

innerbackground.png
halt-prelight.png
halt-active.png
halt.png
GDM.xml
disconnect-prelight.png
disconnect-active.png
disconnect.png
chooser-prelight.png
chooser-active.png
chooser.png
cp: cannot stat `screenshot.png': No such file or directory
james@Polar-Ubuntu:~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts$ Res5
bash: Res5: command not found
james@Polar-Ubuntu:~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts$ #Create GDM Archive
james@Polar-Ubuntu:~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts$ tar czf $GDMNAME.tar.gz $GDMNAME/
james@Polar-Ubuntu:~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts$ #Clean up
james@Polar-Ubuntu:~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts$ rm -R $GDMNAME
james@Polar-Ubuntu:~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts$ exit 0

As you can see, it failed because of no 'screenshot.png. So my first question is.........how do I get it to actually see MY pictures instead of what it appears to download (a whole list of png's). My second question is......the whole idea of making a GDM easily like this (when and if I get it working) strikes me as such a GOOD idea that it would be much easier for dead-head newbies like me if it was an executable program instead of a series of commands to be copied into a terminal (or have I got that wrong also?) It also begs the question - why wasn't something like this built into Ubuntu? <g>

Any hints you can give would be much appreciated

Thanks

James

The script will generate a screenshot for you based on what you set as your background. You do not have to use the terminal (other then to install it)... I will be back to paste the command... And show you how to use it:
makegdm.png
selecting the file

It will ask you a series of questions...
The first question It asks I suggest not using the space bar, *nix does not like spaces in directory names and I am not going to take the time to re-write it so it does.

Spaces are fine everywhere else. It will generate a tar.gz named what you entered in the first dialog, you can rename it to anything you like there after.

Installation:
Code: Select all
cd ~/.gnome2/nautilus-scripts/
wget http://ubuntusoftware.info/scripts/MakeGDM
sudo chmod +x MakeGDM

I installed your GDMaker script, went to a directory that had an image in it, ran the script and the resulting login gave me an error. It could not find the file background.jpg (which isn't what I called the image file I wanted to use). Did I miss something? I'm using Mint 5, the Gnome version.

I am using Ultimate Edition 2.0 & just tried it was wondering if a situation had arised here as has happened in Our Usplash maker (thanks redteam), it is most likely software that is included in Ultimate Edition and not in mint, I have never used mint, I am not slamming it lets get the flame war out of the way before it starts ;) Mint may or may not for example include imagemagik a "show stopper" for the GDM script and was developed with Ultimate Edition in mind, no pun to Mint.

I indeed with a bit of research could write a deb that would work in all Debain based O/S's just currently do not have the time. I do at least try and keep programming section up to date (& fail miserably), I do want to help, but I am under a current heavy load. I have alot to get behind me before I shine.

I have squashed problems, and there were many with the GDM maker & left the website the same, however I have updated the script to now be bulletproof as far as me updating it. if I put version 2.0 on the site you will be greeted:
now full control.png
version control is now set.


But does it work?

Yep, have a brew on me ;)
