    Someone correct me if I'm mistaken here, but I think I recall that there
    is no utility to change the theme of the new gdm as there was before
    (gdmsetup). It is probably some file tweaking now. I found this thread,
    it seems related to your problem: 'change gdm theme in opensuse 11.1 ? -
    openSUSE Forums' (http://tinyurl.com/8wjhos)

    As for the desktops, I can't help you there either; I installed both
    KDE and Gnome and have an option at the bottom of the screen to change
    the session at gdm.

    you could try installing some other desktop manager, like kdm. Or try
    uninstalling and reinstalling gdm, don't know if that will help...

    Hi
    Either via YaST /etc/sysconfig editor or via the
    CLI /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager for gdm
    and /etc/sysconfig/windowmanager for kde, gnome etc.
