    That is because you failed to mention you are using KDE, and the answer came
    from a Gnome user who didn't bother to ask what you use.

    With reference to your original posting: Now we know you use KDE. If we also
    knew if it is on SUSE 9.3, 10.2, 11.0 or WHAT? And, if it is KDE3.x or KDE4.x
    then someone might be able to give you an answer.

    That someone will not be me as I do not know. I do know that there has been
    previous discussions in the SUSE forum on customizing the login screen.

    Have you searched <http://forums.opensuse.org/search.php> on relevant terms to
    see what pops up? (I bet your answer exist, already.)

    Whether you are using gnome or kde, it doesn't matter. you just need to set gdm as display manager. I personally use gdm for login screen. But I also login in kde. So the reply was proper as the #1 asked for gdm manager.

    Coming to your problem, for suse11 it's easy. Just follow the steps.
    1st check /etc/sysconfig/displaymanger file whether displaymanager is set to gdm (I think so in case of you as it says gdm running).
    Then use su to get the root shell and type gdmsetup.
    A GUI appears. Select the login screen from the local tab there.
    Close it. To check the selected screen logout or switch user.

    No luck here:

    # gdmsetup
    -bash: gdmsetup: command not found
