I have installed some kdm themes (ethais, NewEssenceFinal, oxygen, oxygen-air, MIB-Ossigeno-Kdm-Neutral-2.2) that I would like to try out and they are present in "/usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/themes/".
Changing the theme through SystemSettings>Login Screen changed nothing, logging out still defaulted to the default SUSE theme. So I tried the SysConfig editor through YAST and changed DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME to the theme I wanted, still no change after logging out. I have also changed DISPLAYMANAGER to kdm4.
Opened the "/etc/sysconfig/displaymanager" file to make sure the correct line had changed, and it was.
I deleted the SUSE theme, again made sure the theme I wanted was selected, but now it defaults to a background wallpaper and rather plain looking login screen. I don't know if this is correct but I am using the folder name of the theme I want as the string I enter into SysConfig. I have even rebooted several times just in case it was required. I have tried this through my regular account, obviously entering my root password when required, and also through the root account itself.
i am using opensuse 11.4 and i reinstalled it 4 days before.i have changed the cursor theme,login theme etc.after the reinstall i forgot how to change them.so please tell me how to change cursor theme,login theme,boot splash?
I updated my laptop from F12 to F14 via preupgrade. After doing so, the standard mouse theme was active. So I installed the one I like again and set it as mouse theme. For some reason it is now a mixture of the one I installed and the standard theme. If I open a place in nautilus the displayed symbol is the right one while waiting, if I open something in control center I get the standard icon. Same problem with drag and drop, I always get the hand from the standard theme. I also tried the former standard theme Bluecurve and it was the same problem.Can anyone tell me what goes wrong with the theme? What has changed in F14, that the older themes won't work?
openSUSE 11.3 with KDE 4.4.4 release 2.I can change the desktop theme and the splash theme, but I can not change the KDM login manager theme.First, I changed th setting /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME from suse to nothing in Yast -> /etc/sysconfig editor in order to get rid of the ugly Suse login theme.That resulted in having the traditional KDM login theme with the clock.I go to Personal Settings -> Advanced tab -> System: Login Manager (I enter the root password).In tab "General" I checked "Use themed greeter". Gui style and color scheme are set to default.In tab "Theme" I select a theme, click apply, then clikc ok.I log out and log in again. Nothing has changed. I still have the oldstyle KDM login theme.
I'm on openSUSE 11.1 KDE 4.3 RC, and I'm using the kde-branding-openSUSE with KDM from the factory KDE repo, and factory community repo - everything is up-to-date.For some reason my KDM login settings screen is ALL grayed out, so I can't change the theme/settings. I know that you can change it by going to yast and editing the /etc/sysconfig thinghich I actually tried doing, and failing, which is odd because I changed it once a ltime ago to glassified, but can't manage to do now...) I don't want to use a theme, though, but actually use my current wallpaper and set the settings in the login manager to something of my preference.
currently using, openSuSE v11.1 kde v4.3.1.i have, bootsplash, splashy, kdm4 installed.im trying to install the 'fingerprint' theme upon boot.I have autologin enabled for kde. I've tried to install it via splashy, 'splashy_config --set-theme fingerprint' and it works when i do 'splashy --test fingerprint' but when i reboot it doesnt implement it. same old green theme.have also tried to install it through 'login manager' it says its loaded but again, reboot and same default opensuse green logos. ive been following instruction from the theme located at kde-look.org. it looks fantastic.
I'm trying to install a KDE splash screen. I go to Menu --> Config Desktop --> General --> Look and Feel --> Splash Screen --> Gte new themes. There I select and click "install" for "planet exp". All goes well except the new splash screen does not appear in the list of available splash screens.
I am using gnome 2.X in opensuse11.4. I found that each time I log off ,the gnome theme changed automatically to the default one. When I right click the mouse in the desktop, it changed back again to my setting
I installed a theme in emerald, and it didn't do anything, like, it had no effect on my windows or anything. So i did some searching and the only thing i could find was to run "emerald --replace" in the terminal, and it worked, but if I exit out of the terminal, it reverts back to the old theme.How do I keep emerald's theme, even after I exit the terminal?
I went to:Configure Desktop > Appearance > Icons > Get New Themesand I chose a new theme by clicking "Install." Now it shows it as installed (has "uninstall" button) but when I go to "Customize KDE Icons" it doesn't show up. I tried logging out and back in but it still won't show as a choice (but it's still "installed" somewhere).
I installed suse kde 4.4 on a new machine using a cd made with suse studio.
I decided to change the login theme. I went into the login manager, downloaded, selected, and applied a new theme. Restarted. Nothing changed. I still had the same old theme pre-installed via suse studio.
I thought it could be a bug with that particular theme. So I downloaded another theme through the login manager. I selected it, and clicked apply. Restarted.... nothing changed...still the old theme.
I thoroughly searched every option in login manager, thinking that I missed a simple setting. Tried everything I could think of. Still same old theme.
So... I decided to delete the theme pre-installed via suse-studio using login manager. Went to the login screen. It changed! But it wasn't the theme I applied. It was a simple theme-less login screen.
Went back to the login manager. I can change the background pic manually, but I can't install any theme!
to change the login theme. I go to 'Configure Desktop' then 'Login Screen' and change it but when i log out it is still the default screen. Even if i reset the computer it is still the Default... is there something else i need todo? I am using opensuse 11.4 with KDE as default but i have Gnome installed too.
In OpenSUSE 11.4, I changed my KDM4 theme to KStarboard. All works well except the fact that the background on the login screen is broken into vertical lines just like the original OpenSUSE KDM theme. Is this hardcoded somehow or just a consequence of problems with resolution? My resolution is 1366x768.
Today I was trying to install the Bespin window theme for KDE. To compile Bespin I need a few packages that I do not have installed. I googled and looked around for a few hours but I'm not sure which repo they are in. The packs are called kdebase-dev, kdelibs5-dev, libplasma-dev, kdebase-workspace-dev. How can I find these packeges?
I can't change my GDM theme any more nor will I be able to in the next version of Ubuntu! I know why (the gnome developers took the feature out in the re-write of GDM). I have two questions. Why is GDM so bloated that they can't re-write all of the features? It also seems to take a lot of resources (more than the others). My second question. When, if ever, will I be able to customize my gdm theme again?
What happened to the gdm configuration screen where I could change the default gdm theme? This seems to have disappeared from ubuntu 10.04, and in my personal opinion, the white/purple default theme of the new gdm is terrible and I would like to change it. Where is the GUI for this in lucid, and why has it disappeared?
EDIT: System -> Administration -> Login Screen only allows me to change automatic logins and other features like that. The GUI I'm referring to isn't there.
I can get to System / Preference / Appearance / Theme in 10.04 but when I decide I want to use the Clearbooks theme and open it, there is no icon to click to install it. Exactly how does this work, step by step?
How you can change you're gdm gtk3 theme with fedora 15. Prerequisite: gnome-tweak-tool and a terminal (gnome-terminal) Open gnome-terminal:
Code: su - ( insert password) Now we are root and the first step is to install gnome-tweak-tool if you already did this skip this. Install gnome-tweak-tool
Code: yum install gnome-tweak-tool Now we make the gdm user available to make changes:
Code: # xhost +SI:localuser:gdm If you did this right you get this message:
Code: localuser:gdm being added to access control list Next we will fire up gnome-tweak-tool
Code: # sudo -u gdm gnome-tweak-tool
This will start gnome-tweak-tool as the user gdm (sudo -u username will start the application as designated user). Now we can change the interface gtk+theme, icon theme and cursor theme to whatever you like. Don't forget to change windows current theme to what you want.
How to change gdm login background: Code: # sudo -u gdm gnome-control-center Here you can change the background
And when you're done exit the gnome-tweak-tool or gnome-control-center and type: Code: # exit (ps the # sign is the sign you're running the command as ROOT don't copy it!!
I overwrote this laptop from an Ubuntu installation to Fedora 15 (Gnome 3 doesn't work, in fallback mode) and unfortunately the theme is messed up. Using Gnome-Tweak tool I cannot change the shell theme, instead I get the message Quote:Could not list shell extensionsAny way to bypass or clear out so it returns to default?---------- Post added at 10:36 PM ---------- Previous post was at 07:12 PM ----------After reboot I had kernel crashes and the system would not boot up anymore. So I re-installed over the previous one, and modified the .gconf, .gconfd, .gnome2 and .gnome2_private before connecting my /home directory to the folder
