How to change Login screen?

Does anyone know where gdmsetup is? or how I can change the default
login screen?

openSUSE 11.1

I assume you don’t like the ugly Gnome login screen that jumps around as
you type with 11.1 - I thought the 11.0 version was tasteful, this one
looks amateurish.

Go to YaST | /etc/sysconfig editor | Desktop | Display Manager

and choose (for example) kdm4.

It might be a good idea to install kdm4 before you log out of course.
Don’t worry, it won’t install tons of KDE4 stuff you don’t want.

To safe, after you’ve logged out, use ctrl-alt-F1 to get a linux
console, and as root do “init 3” then “init 5” to that the system stops
and starts the display manager.

Choose “Gnome” as your session type when you log in via kdm4 for the
first time, thereafter it remembers.

I’m not really certain but it’s or F10 or a combination of F10 with Alt
or CTRL.

That will popup a setupmenu from the GDM loginscreen.
That’s the place where you can change the user icons, themes, fonts
etc.
