Lightdm Greeter Themes

Overview I've been playing around with Manjaro XFCE recently, despite being a hard-core KDE fan (and I still am!). While I was prepared to accept that XFCE wasn't going to be entirely as pretty as KDE, the default login theme looks a little too boring for my eyes. It didn't take long to find that there is a Manjaro webkit theme in the repositories, the problem is that the dominant colour is white, and not the Manjaro grey.

So I spent today fiddling with the theme's CSS file to recolour everything to make it more suitable for Manjaro. Then I figured since I spent so long on it, and it was a feature request in this, I would release my work to the public. I hope you enjoy!

Eugen-b: Isn't theme and greeter the same in lightdm? I don't think so. When I go to lightdm-gtk-greeter-settings I can choose a variety of gtk themes there, but not for example lightdm-webkit2-greeter-manjaro-dark. For that one I think I will need to install the actual greeter first, which I think will be lightdm-webkit-greeter (or is it lightdm-webkit2-greeter-manjaro? Or is that just another theme for lightdm-webkit-greeter? Those are my questions ) If that's the case, I think lightdm-webkit2-greeter-manjaro-dark (and likely lightdm-webkit2-greeter-manjaro also) should depend on lightdm-webkit-greeter because they will not work without it, I think.
