Description redhat-bugzilla 2010-01-07 16:46:34 EST
Description of problem:
When shutting down computer and a user is logged in on a tty, a dialog is shown asking for confirmation to end those sessions. This dialog is shown using the built-in yellowish colorscheme - not pretty (for me).

Change lines 283 & 440 in /etc/kde/kdm/kdmrc to:
283: GUIStyle=Oxygen
440: ColorScheme=Oxygen

nice consistent desktop (as far as default style oxygen is unchanged)

Additional info:

I would've provided a patch but (it's the first patch i ever made) this - even if to me the changes done reflect exactly the changes i made by hand - requires me to reinstall kde-settings-kdm, reporting /usr/share/config/kdm/kdmrc can not be opened and thus not starting kdm correctly. Changing the lines by hand does work though...

first bug i filed, don't kill me if anything is missing or sth...

Using a color scheme which matches the KDM theme has been intentional so far. In the past, we even did our own color schemes for KDM to match our themes.

We can and should get this into f13 anyway, unless someone truly believes the yellow theme looks better?  ;)
