Change boot and login Screen In ubuntu 10.04 With Pictures

Today we'll explain aesthetic touch to add our own Ubuntu 10.04 until we get a wonderful desktop

1 - Change boot screen :

In Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid was used Plymouth, which contains many of characteristics and new features, and bring more beauty and a touch of our own distributions Ubuntu 10:04
Begin installation of Themes Plymouth with following command :
sudo apt-get install plymouth-theme-*

After inauguration, and for selection of an appropriate Theme for us, we apply following command:
sudo update-alternatives --config default.plymouth

Will show us this list: 

Choose No Theme and push enter
No. 5, for example, choose to install (Theme Sabily)
We take off and we'll see what we have done
You can access following path:

You will find themes that we have installed, and be able to modify any one of them to become your own, and you can share your friends

Note: In my experience, some of themes you need rebooting twice, so that works well

2 - Change login screen for users:
Choose your favorite photos that you want to use as a login screen, and must be a JPG, then copy it to following folder :
gksudo nautilus /usr/share/backgrounds

Order to activate selection of login screen:
sudo cp /usr/share/applications/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop/usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow

We logged out and when you see screen user's choice, will appear to us a window (select background) this:

Choose from background that we want, and will be applied directly
In this case, when you enter system you'll see a selection screen background (you can try it)
To stop emergence of this window we apply following command :
sudo unlink /usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop
