Can anyone show me a way to change the default login screen theme with the ones available at http://www.gnome-look.org ?

For eg, this http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/HexLogin?content=169840

I managed to download this as a .tar.gz file but how should I install it? I have installed gdm and ubuntu tweak, but couldn't find a way to install it.

Edit: This is not a duplicate question, the solution given in the other questions aren't working for 14.04.

  • Nope, that question does not give an existing solution for ubuntu 14.04 – Vasu Mistry Jan 25 '16 at 14:29
  • Have you tried opening the tar file using tar -xvf (name of the download) or -tvzf if you want to see the contents of the file before you open it? – htennent Oct 6 '16 at 12:07
