Hi Henrick

Thanks for working on this - unfortunately I'm back on my windows PC at the
moment as the HD with Ubuntu on has had a terminal hiccup.

Is there a keyboard method for installing the new theme?

Oh, and white writing on black for me please.

Many Thanks

Hi all,

As part of our efforts at making the login screen more accessible we
have prepared a high contrast GDM theme. Stéphane Marguet (on CC) has
implemented a black-on-white theme with large fonts and high contrast icons.

Please help test it!

You can download it from here: http://people.ubuntu.com/~henrik/temp/

To install it just drag it to the theme section of the Login Window
dialog (found in System -> Administration)

What else would be useful? Perhaps a white-on-black or yellow-on-blue
version? Are the fonts clear enough or should they be larger?

One known issue is that the fonts in the 'Sessions' dialog are still
standard size
