How to get Gnome 3.2 login theme installed?

I installed Gnome Shell 3.2 and everything is fine other than the fact that I don't get the newly introduced Gnome Shell login prompt and instead get either the standard Ubuntu LightDM or the standard GDM. What do I need to do to get this?

LightDM and GDM are not login prompts, they are login or display managers (DM) that let you select the environment to login to. LightDM happens to be the default one in 11.10. Click the cogwheel to see the available login options or, as you call them, prompts.

Gnome Shell is selected. What I'm asking for is the actual login prompt isn't themed as Gnome Shell 3. – tupperware Dec 6 '11 at 18:44
@mikewhatever I think the OP is looking for how to configure GDM to look like this. (Source) – Christopher Kyle Horton Dec 7 '11 at 1:18
