Is there a place where I could find a list of LightDM greeters and where I could download them? I would very much like to see some custom made greeters so I can fully customise my Ubuntu :) I know that one of the lead designers in Ubuntu once showed an animation with imps in the greeter, now that was amazing but I want something different.


The Wikipedia page contains a reasonably accurate list of available greeters. In Ubuntu the following greeters are in the archive (package name in brackets):

  • Unity Greeter (unity-greeter)
  • GTK+ Greeter (lightdm-gtk-greeter)
  • KDE Greeter (lightdm-kde-greeter)
  • WebKit Greeter (lightdm-webkit-greeter)
  • RazorQt Greeter (razorqt-lightdm-greeter)
