Ubuntu / Linux news and application reviews.

Last week we presented New Wave 0.90 beta 1. Well, here is also a lock-dialog theme to go with New Wave which works for Ubuntu 9.10 Karmic Koala and Ubuntu 10.04 Lucid Lynx:

new wave lock dialog theme ubuntu

Of curse, you can use this lock-dialog theme without the New Wave theme if you want.

To install it, download the package from HERE, then extract the archive contents to /usr/share/gnome-screensaver:
sudo tar -C /usr/share/gnome-screensaver -xzf 125281-newwave-lock-dialog.tar.gz

Then you need to set the New Wave lock screen theme using the gconf-editor. This can be done easily by simply pasting this in a terminal:
gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme newwave

If you want to reset it, paste this in a terminal:
gconftool-2 --type string --set /apps/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme default
