kdmrc: Replace kde4/circles standard background and userlist
Last modified: 2008-04-07 13:31:12 EDT
Description of problem:
KDE4/circles is quite ugly. It breaks with consistency with the default fedora
theme (waves for F9) from grub, rhgb, ksplash and default wallpaper. Because
there will likely be no gdm theme to adopt, we could use the non-themed kdm
For this I've modified /etc/kde/kdmrc:
GreetString=Welcome to Fedora 9 Sulphur"
The background in the screenshot is taken from here:
(There seems to be no default background image for the moment).
This seems to look fine on a CRT with 4:3. The screenshots are taken from
vmware with a resolution of 1280x1024. But I'm not able to test this on TFTs
with a 16/10 resolution.

I think we should be using one of the backgrounds which actually went into
nod, I'll get to work on this.

Sure. We should use the default wallpaper from Waves theme (like there was
existing one for Infinity). And also the ColorScheme should maybe be adjusted
to match waves artwork.
The screenshots above were only an example.
