    Greeting screen is not changing when using Gnome login screen application

    I am having a problem with my greeting screens not changing when I install and select teh one i want through KDE.

    This does work on one of my computers which i havnt made any mad any major changes to the xorg.conf.

    But the other computer where i have made changes (well where ATI drivers made changes to my xorg.conf file) is locked in the default greeting screen and does not want to change when i select a different greeting screen through the gnome login screen application.

    I am doing this through KDE by the way. Is there any way to define or check what greeting screen application is defined on the system that governs this.

    You're welcome. One thing I forgot to mention. You will also need to open the file called "/etc/X11/xdm/kdmrc", find the line that starts with UseTheme, and set the value to false, as follows:
    Code:
    UseTheme=false
    This will get rid of the Bluecurve Theme used by default with your KDM screen.
