Hi,

No offense, but i am sort of boared by the green bootscreens in
opensuse, and want to replace them by more beautiful, to my needs
fitting ones.
The one that actually boots into the os i was able to change, but the
loginscreen is stuck, when trying to change it in systemsettings.
Maybe i do something wrong?

Kind regards,

For KDE you should first disable SuSE theme - /etc/displaymanager
DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME=""

Then in "Personal Settings" you could disable "themed greeter" and then
select your own background. Probably you can modify the theme yourself,
but I don't know how.
Beware there is an old bug in KDE4 (I think, opened from the very first
version, but definitely from 4.2) that causes kdm settings reset to
default each time KDM is updated). I had to copy settings
(/usr/share/kde4/config/kdm backgroundrc and kdmrc to some backup place
and restore them after updates).
Works fine in KDE3 though.

Thanx 4 these tips, i will be able to find the location of the displaymanager theme, and will most certainly store a copy somewhere. 8-)
