A Google/ChromeOS style LightDM Webkit greeter theme

This is a theme for LightDM Webkit (lightdm-webkit-greeter).

It's designed to be a mix between the usual Google log in screen, and the log in screen that you will find on ChromeOS.



I created this for use on Arch Linux on my HP Chromebook 11, so it only has the basic features of:

  • Selecting an available user from a dropdown
  • Entering their password
  • Seeing their profile picture
  • Restarting the computer
  • Shutting the computer down
  • A clock!

How to install

Instructions will differ for every platform, but I can tell you how to install it on Arch Linux:

  1. Install and enable lightdm and lightdm-webkit-greeter
  2. In the terminal, cd to /usr/share/lightdm-webkit/themes/
  3. Clone this repository here, it should create a folder called lightdm-webkit-google
  4. Enable the theme in your /etc/lightdm/lightdm-webkit-greeter.conf

Setting your own user picture

There are a couple of methods you can use to set your user picture in LightDM:

  • Put a jpg of your face in your home directory as a file called .face


  • Add Icon=/path/to/your/face.png to the bottom of /var/lib/AccountsService/users/<youraccountname>
