./autogen.sh file, which will prepare the build system (Basically it’s a custom helper script written by developer that runs various tools like libtoolize, autoconf, or autoreconf). Then run make & finally run make install to complete the installation.

GDM (Lock/Login Screen) – GNOME Shell themes We can change the GDM theme by rewriting a system file. But please be careful because if it fails, the desktop environment may not operate correctly, so check the current gnome shell version on your system with theme supported version before proceeding the change.
Check the gnome shell version
$ gnome-shell --version
Backup the default gnome shell theme gresource file
$ sudo cp -i /usr/share/gnome-shell/gnome-shell-theme.gresource /usr/share/gnome-shell/gnome-shell-theme.gresource.bk
Change the Adapta gnome shell theme gresource file
$ sudo cp /usr/share/themes/Adapta/gnome-shell/gnome-shell-theme.gresource /usr/share/gnome-shell/
Finally reboot the system to take effect
$ sudo reboot
