Still Can't change Logon Theme

Postby Orbmiser » 08 Jul 2014 17:38

Been an ongoing issue that has been unresolved last 4-5 months? or so.

Select this theme and shows selected.

But stuck with this one no matter what theme I select.

Seems locked into the SolydK default. Even running sudo system-settings in the terminal doesn't resolve the issue.
Can't figure out if it's a KDE issue? A SolydK default lock or config issue?

Any help insights would be appreciated. And if you had this issue yourself?

From the KDE forums from on of the Admins booksley
https://forum.kde.org/viewtopic.php?f=66&t=120791
That indeed appears to be correct. Please note that the KDE default theme is actually Elarun - so it is quite possible that a SolyDK modification is the cause of this issue.

Does changing the theme through editing kdmrc work?

Code: Select all

sudo nano /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc

Well kdmrc is showing my choice but isn't being honored.

Code: Select all

Theme=/usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/themes/Elegant-Air_KDM
UseBackground=true
UseTheme=true
UserCompletion=false
UserList=true
My guess SolydXK has a KDE config somewhere that overrides the kdmrc?
Just guessing here as so many places where this config overrides that config has my head spinning
Or multiple places where some config's take precedent over other's?

changing login screen through system settings is working on my side (asks for password and changes kdmrc accordingly).
Your issue might have another origin.
I have added my kdmrc, just change YOURUSERNAME on 2 places, for comparisson

The only difference in files is:

Code: Select all

[X-*-Greeter]

ColorScheme=ObsidianCoast yours is blank
GUIStyle=Oxygen yours is blank
GreetString=Welcome to %s at %n yours is GreetString=Welkom bij %s op %n
Theme=/usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/themes/Elegant-Air_KDM 
your Theme=/usr/share/kde4/apps/kdm/themes/solydk which is the default.

[X-:0-Core]
AutoLoginEnable=true yours is false
AutoLoginUser=orbmiser yours is empty
Otherwise the files are identical so don't know why a need to replace it? Or see why any of those changes would cause issue. And believe the problem is not in this file but elsewhere.
