Thread: Login Screen Not Changing

    Default Login Screen Not Changing

    Hi Guys,

    I am running opensuse 11.4 on my Lenovo G450. The probem is that the login theme is not changing. Its the same default one. I am sure that I am following the way it should be to assign the new theme but no result. What could it be?

    well, since no one on the forum was standing behind you when you did
    what you did that gave no results, then i don't think anyone would have
    a clue what went wrong..

    did you get an error message?

    maybe you could start by telling us what desktop environment you use,
    and if you use GDM or KDM...and, be sure and tell us if you use GDM to
    boot to KDE, or KDM to boot to GNOME, or what do you use to boot to LXDE
    or Xfce or . . .

    and, then tell us exactly how you went about changing the theme, or give
    us the URL to the how-to you followed?

    then, we might have a shot at figuring out what went wrong...maybe..

    Hi DenverD,

    Thanks for your query. Here it is-

    "did you get an error message?" - No.

    I use KDM to boot to KDE I think. The desktop environment is KDE for sure.

    I simply followed the procedure listed below-

    1. Clicked on Kickoff Application Launcher and went to "Configure Desktop"

    2. Under System Administration, I clicked on "Login Screen"

    3. Under General Tab, the option "Use themed greeter" is highlighted with default values for GUI_Style and Color_Scheme

    4. I went to Theme Tab and selected suse-elegant theme. (which has been downloaded and Installed by clicking "Install_new_theme"

    5. Clicked on Apply, provided administrative password and thats all. It accepted and done.

    But there is no suse_elegant screen at the time of login.

    ok, it certainly sounds like you did everything right....why not try to
    select one of the pre-installed themes, say oxygen and see if your login
    theme changes then....if so, then spin it back to "suse-elegant theme"
    and see how that works then..

    oh no! i just thought: what if the "default" *is* "suse-elegant" then
    you did change you made worked, but it just changed to what it already
    was!!!

    no, of course i have not gone to see what "suse-elegant" should look
    like or what suse-default does looks like [is either one that ugly
    BROKEN looking background (what WERE they thinking?)]

    No DenverD, none of the pre-installed theme is working instead of the default ones.
