ArchBang LXDM Theme

I switched from slim to lxdm, because I like to select the user with the mouse or arrows+enter...
The shipped theme is, well... awful, and changind the background is not enough, for that huge "Login:" image in the centre.
So I started to play with the files in /usr/share/lxdm/themes/Industrial, and the result is ABDojo:
- Background is abdojo.jpeg from the AB wallpapers folder
- The huge "Login:" image disappeared, toghether with "User:" on the left of the users list
- The list moved a bit downwards, to leave the AB logo in the doorway clear

Hope someone enjoys it! smile

I don't know how to prepare a package to upload to AUR, so here is the link:
The folder goes in /usr/share/lxdm/themes, then you have to modify /etc/lxdm/lxdm.conf as follows:

## the theme of greeter

You may also add this, to have a gray selection background in the users list, instead of the light blue of Clearlooks

## gtk theme used by greeter

If anyone wants to pack it for AUR, please feel free
