    Actually, I want to change the GTK theme of it MANUALLY, without any GUI tool.

    Hello

    I don't run GDM any longer, but check for these files:

    /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf
    /etc/gdm/gdm.conf

    I believe you'll find the configuration files in one of those locations unless they've changed things.

    You can also check here for some tips that might still apply, along with the manual page:

    Code:
    man gdm
    Hope some of that helps you.

    I didn't find any of them, instead; I found /etc/gdm/gdm-cdd.conf.
    So, I made a gdm.conf file under /etc/gdm, and I wrote:

    Code:
    [gui]
    GtkRC=/usr/share/themes/ClearlooksClassic/gtk-2.0/gtkrc
    GtkTheme=Clearlooks
    After rebooting... nothing changed!
