Here’s how you can do it:

sudo cp /usr/share/applications/gnome-appearance-properties.desktop /usr/share/gdm/autostart/LoginWindow command in that window
Step 3: Now you’ll have to log-out, you’ll see a “Appearance Preferences ” window
Step 4: Go ahead and play around with it, change the theme, background, mouse cursor, and icons whatever you like and the way you like
Step 5: After customizing everything log-in again and put this command to prevent the Appearance window from opening at the GDM screen every time
