What we have:

The path seems correct, but is not usable by the kdmrc.

The looks and fonts can be changed, but not the theme:
FailFont=Sans Serif,10,-1,5,75,0,0,0,0,0
systemsettings>login screen.

The themes that are shown, and really stored at
/usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/themes , can be choosen and saved, but do not
commit, why?
Who owns the relevant directory and files? Are you trying to change the login
theme without the required privileges? Does this operation require elevated
privileges, esp. since it is a "system global" setting and not a per-user
setting? I don't know - I've never tried it myself, so just asking.

Np, Themes are supposed to be changed at 2 places: systemsettings>login screen, and Yast>System>edit /etc/sysconfig , and for both root-privileges are needed.
The problem is just that the themes can not be switched, and it would be nice if turned out why.
