In Ubuntu 18.04, I noticed that directory
/usr/share/themes is where customized GTK themes, that beautify the Desktop and Lockscreen, are installed.
For customized GDM theme, i.e. theme use to beautify the GNOME Loginscreen and Unlockscreen, is
/usr/share/themes also the default directory to install them? Or, is
/usr/share/gnome-shell/theme the default directory to install customized GDM theme?
- The theme that I want to install is suppose to only change the looks of the GDM login and unlockscreen, not the desktop environment. I plan to use it via sudo update-alternatives --config gdm3.css. I think such a theme should not be found in user directory. Agree? For the desktop environment, I will use other user theme to change the look and use GNOME Tweaks to configure that.
- So between /usr/share/themes and /usr/share/gnome-shell/theme, which directory should I use to install customised GDM theme? I am leaning towards the latter. If it is the former, I am concern that the customised GDM theme would appear in gnome-tweaks theme and a user can mistakenly select it as a desktop theme. Correct?
