I want to change the default Login Screen background/theme in Centos 6.3. The INSTALL folder in the theme I downloaded says:

Use 'gdmsetup' to install.

But gdmsetup isn't a recognized command. I installed the latest EPEL repositories and tried a yum install gdmsetup that didn't work.

I did yum list *gdm* and I got this:

[root@localhost BlueSwirl]# yum list *gdm*

I'm not sure what I'm missing or what I need to do. Can anyone tell me how to customize my login screen or use some sort of theme installer to customize it?

Try with yum groupinstall "GNOME Desktop Environment" "X Window System" – Renju Chandran chingath Sep 19 '13 at 11:46
