[openFATE 311077] Themeing (SuSE-Elegant?)
Feature changed by: William MacKay (foobaz)
Feature #311077, revision 6
Title: Themeing (SuSE-Elegant?)

openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
Requester: Desirable

Requested by: Steffen Klein (sklein7)
Partner organization:

Hi What about changing the Default-Theme to SuSE-Elegant from Cristian
Rodriguez? See + the
there mentioned links for the look. At least providing a package for
simple change of the various grub/boot/kdm/kde-screens would be neat.
Regards, Steffen

Business case (Partner benefit): It might be a matter of taste, but I think it looks way
cooler and more modern than the default greenish look while still
providing a SuSE-specific style.

I also have switched my 11.3 theme to SuSE-Elegant, destroying my
system's ability to boot in the process. Now everything runs fine with
it and it boots great, but it would be cool to have it as a default
option or at least make it easier to configure.
And when we're at it, a higher resolution version of the boot screen
would be cool. I use a big screen. The GRUB loader from SuSE-Elegant
fills the screen, but the subsequent screens are all in a lower
resolution, which looks pretty bad until I've logged in.

Is the boot splash really dependent on the desktop environment? It
looks great, but I'm using GNOME. Maybe I'll try messing with it later
and see what I can come up with.

+ I updated the SuSE-Elegant theme to support far more resolutions, and
+ fixed aspect ratio problems at several resolutions. Please consider
+ using my variation of the theme. You can find it at:
