Description of problem:
Still can agree with what is write on Bugzilla Bug 154977
but now in FC4 final release
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Set DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE" in /etc/sysconfig/desktop
Steps to Reproduce:
1. after set DISPLAYMANAGER="KDE", reboot computer.
all blue background screen login
fedora bacakground screen login with clock
I would like to know :D, what I have to change in spec file to compile kdebase
(from kdebase-3.4.1-0.fc4.1.src.rpm) with the KDM-Theme Manager (kdemtheme) ?
the fedora background is included in fedora-logos package, you should install
this package. To have kdmtheme in KDE, you have to download it from the
following website: http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=22120 and
rebuild it for FC4.
I think I don't explain my self very well, after file this bug I realize that
Fedora Logos appears on my KDM, but appears one Default KDE theme (with a all
blue background) that is not the default FEDORA theme (with the default fedora
Well with some luck, I found the bug.
UseTheme=true make the bug.
after apply this diff, kdm back to normal.
it's intended to enable UseTheme as default in FC4. If you don't want it, you
should disable it manually as you have done above or just use kdmtheme tool to
disable it. it's not a bug!
After upgrade to kde 3.5 I got same issue ,
the upgrade overwrite /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc
and UseTheme still not avaible ,
so copy old kdmrc over new one
cp /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc.rpmsave /etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc
ok, i added FedoraBubble theme for KDM, it will have the same look as GDM.
This problem will be fixed in new kdebase-3.5.4-0.6.fc5. Thanks for your
