A light gray, easy-on-the-eyes, Plymouth theme and GDM wallpaper
Latest commit 76a0b72 Feb 4, 2012 @Rudd-O crushed wallpaper



# Presenting a GDM theme for Fedora and other platforms using the Plymouth
# splash screen manager.  It supports password and interactive prompts,
# progress throbber, boot messages and nice fadein / out when appropriate.
# This theme requires the script plugin for Plymouth.  Most distributions
# come with this plugin already, or have it available on their repositories.
# Deploy into /usr/share/plymouth/themes as a folder named Rudd-O-Grey,
# then set it as default with:
#     plymouth-set-default-theme Rudd-O-Grey -R
# For the full effect:
# a) drop the file 10-rudd-o-grey-settings into:
#       /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d
#    and then run the command dconf update as root
# b) set wallpaper.png to be your desktop's wallpaper
# Alternatively, you can run this command in your shell (it will require
# sudo privileges) and it will install the plymouth theme for you.
# The following are executable installation instructions.
