    You can edit /usr/share/kde4/config/kdm/kdmrc (as root) and set the value of Theme in [X-*-Greeter] section.

    Humm ... setting the theme in kdmrc is not sufficient in openSUSE, sorry. You have to set DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME in /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager. You can do it with YaST sysconfig-editor. In a terminal, type:

    Code:
    xdg-su -c '/sbin/yast2 sysconfig'
    ( or start YaST and click on sysconfig-editor)

    Then:

    Desktop
    -> Display manager
    -> DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME

    and write "oxygen".

    * You'll have to restart kdm (or reboot).
