    Default Login Information Needed


    Is there a way for me to direct openSuse to not automatically log me in
    after a reboot? and my next question is how do i change the login screen
    on Gnome login?

    KDE has an option to change the login screen; not sure about Gnome. Try
    YaST>Security and Users if you have chosen the option to have the same
    password for root and the first user.

    The login screen comes before Gnome is loaded; simply select
    Session>Gnome and it will log in to Gnome every time until you change
    it.

    Thanx John
    playing around with /etc/sysconfig Editor I found an entry in
    Desktop/DisplayManager/DisplayManager_AutoLogin I cleared my name from
    the entry and that seems to have done the trick

    As with the other change this is not a Gnome parameter, but a
    DisplayManager (kdm or gdm) parameter. Look in the file(s) inside
    /etc/sysconfig/Desktop/DisplayManager/. May be you find a parameter that
    looks like the one you need.

    Or else may be you must try to find the file of the kdm/gdm parameters.

    YaST
    -> System
    -> /etc/sysconfig editor
    -> Desktop
    -> Display Manager

    Set DISPLAYMANAGER = kdm
    Set DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME to one of the themes under
    -/opt/kde3/share/apps/kdm/themes- Default = SUSE. Substitute your
    background image into the theme directory. Slightly brutal hack.

    Sounds like the right direction to go!
