Will the new firmware update for Zorin have more customizable options?

That thread you pointed to me says that I should type - 'gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.peripherals.touchpad tap-to-click true' in terminal but that did not work for me.

I need another solution!

I wonder if it only works on pure ubuntu?

It's the same advice here:

This page gives a GUI alternative option - see if that helps but it does mean reverting to GDM.

There's a setting in dconf-editor that'll handle that.

sudo apt install dconf-editor

Be careful with Dconf-Editor... you can really mess your system up badly if you set the wrong settings on some things. It'll warn you about this when you start it up.

you can really mess your system up badly .... yes you can

If I'm going to change something there I always like to take a screenshot before and after what I would like to change in case something goes sideways ..... at least I can change it back to what it was if I don't like the results .....

Hmm, I won't mess around with Dconf-Editor but I really want to change the things I mentioned previously somehow...

I've now switched back from SDDM to GDM via the terminal.

Alright, the bottom link tap-to-click guide actually worked - it is based on the Ubuntu 22.04 OS and GDM. So does this mean Zorin 16.2 (released in Oct 2022) based on Ubuntu 22.04?

Now how can I customize the login screen to whatever I wish on GDM?

No, Zorin 16.2 is not based on Ubuntu 22.04 - that will be forked to Zorin 17 in due course.

In respect of theming either use that youtube video link I posted or take a look at this but do so at your own risk. Remember, Gnome Devs don't like anyone modifying anything they have made!

Well as long a tool or software is open source, Anybody can modify it any way they want.

Does this show me a bunch of login screen themes to pick and choose from?

What was this comment referring to?

No it just points to global themes:

How do I change the Username box font colour?
I do not want it to remain white.

I guess you would have to dig deep and look at the .css files to amend, something I have never done. Guess I am easy to please! :grin: :

I've already changed the login screen theme but how do I change the colour font of the login user box?

I have stated in my last post you will need to edit the .css files of the different themes. I am no coder. @Storm can you advise?

Probably change ffffff to 000000 in the css file.
