How to personalize your KDE Desktop!
This is a tutorial to create your kdm and Splash Screen theme: you can find all that you have to modify or create.
First off all look at the kdmrc file: kate /etc/kdX/kdmrc (subs X with the version of kde), and make sure that in the [X-*-Greeter] section there’s the line UseTheme=true.
Now you can find the installed KDM theme here: /usr/share/apps/kdm/themes
Than look in the folder of the installed themes, where you can find a .xml file, which is the file with the configuration option of the kdm screen. You can modify there the color, dimension and position of fonts and images of your kdm.
Then take a look of the images and change them with your prefer ones.
KDE saves your downloaded ksplash screen in: /home/thio/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes
There you can modify all that you want with your prefer images. You also find a .rc file that is the file of the configuration.
You can also download a lot of kdm & splash screen from the section of kde-look.
