I would propose the follwing "configuration section. Most of the subsections are easier and up-to-date versions of those on the Gnome page and on the GDM page. No need to export variables anymore. If this is ok we should also merge the Gnome page.
:: I like the use of dconf profile files, but I believe we shouldn't tell users to echo config to new files. I think it would be better to tell users to create a new file in the proper location, then provide a code block which they can copy-paste into that file. --[[User:Stefanwilkens|stefanwilkens]] ([[User talk:Stefanwilkens|talk]]) 21:34, 14 October 2013 (UTC)
You can install {{aur|gdm3setup}} from the AUR to configure GDM, or use the following instructions that use dconf profile files.
==== Login background image ====
To change the wallpaper of the login screen use
# mkdir /opt/login
# echo -e "[org/gnome/desktop/background]\npicture-uri='file:///opt/login/wallpaper.jpg'" > /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/01-background
# cp [YOUR FILE] /opt/login/wallpaper.jpg
# dconf update
where [YOUR FILE] needs to be a *.jpg picture.
==== Logo on login screen ====
To display a logo on your login screen use
# mkdir /opt/login
# echo -e "[org/gnome/login-screen]\nlogo='/opt/login/logo.png'" > /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/02-logo
# cp [YOUR FILE] /opt/login/logo.png
# dconf update
where [YOUR FILE] needs to be a *.png picture.
==== Larger font for login ====
To change the font size of the login screen use
# echo -e "[org/gnome/desktop/interface]\ntext-scaling-factor='1.25'" > /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/03-scaling
# dconf update
==== Turning off the sound ====
This tweak disables the audible feedback heard when the system volume is adjusted (via keyboard) on the login screen.
# echo -e "[org/gnome/desktop/sound]\nevent-sounds='false'" > /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/04-sound
# dconf update
==== Make the power button interactive ====
The default installation sets the power button to suspend the system. '''''Power off'''''  or  '''''Show dialog'''''  is a better choice.
# echo -e "[org/gnome/settings-daemon/plugins/power button]\npower='interactive'\nhibernate='interactive'" > /etc/dconf/db/gdm.d/05-power
# dconf update
{{Warning|Please note that the [[Acpid|acpid]] daemon also handle the "power button" an "hibernate button" event. Running both systems at the same time may lead to unexpected behaviour.}}
==== Prevent suspend when closing the lid ====
On some systems it happens that your laptop suspends when you are closing the lid despite having set the options ''Laptop lid close action on battery'' and ''Laptop lid close action on AC'' to ''blank''. If this is the case, append the following line to {{ic|/etc/systemd/logind.conf}}:
==== GDM keyboard layout ====
GDM does not know about your GNOME 3 desktop keyboard settings. To change keyboard settings used by GDM, set your layout using Xorg configuration. Refer to this section of the [[Beginners'_Guide#Non-US_keyboard|Beginner's Guide.]]
