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.

I don't like them either, if you're talking about the Grub GFXmenu.

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.

I usually fix it quite simply: 'gfxboot --change-config boot::penguin=100'.

Thnx Felix, will try this.. ;-)

I took a look at the page you suggested, but it is not actually easy to just change a background image this way.

I googled around, and came via kubuntu forums at this:

Do you think this will work with grub also?
Or do i have to install grub2 for it?

Kind Regards.

The SDB:gfxboot:

is outdated, the direction mentioned there, is no longer valid in 12.1....

gfxboot essentially works with the /boot/message file

to update it according to themes found in /usr/share/gfxboot/themes
to manage the content of the configuration file gfxboot.cfg contained in the archive file /boot/message

The gfxboot-devel package and a virtual machine provider package, such as qemu is required to develop and test new themes.

There are only 2 themes supplied with openSUSE [at 11.0], namely openSUSE and upstream.

Have a nice day,
