Login Screen Mockups

Recently I came across a message on the ubuntu-desktop list in which Robert Ancell proposed switching from GDM (the currently login manager in Ubuntu) to LightDM.

One thing I found out I liked about LightDM is that you can pretty much create any type of ‘greeter’ you want. This got me thinking, if there weren’t any restrictions on what I could do (as there currently are with GDM), what would I do with the login screen?

The results of this are below, I have used ideas from:

  • The elementary Project – [link]
  • GDMFaceBrowser Spec – [link]
  • Gnome Shell Login Mockups – [link]

    get the hold of it!
