I wanted to install and test Compiz. It was not working with KDE so I decided to install Gnome to see if Compiz would work better. Well I was shocked, Compiz work almost perfectly with Gnome. To install Gnome I did
aptitude install gnome-core.
This is my Microsoft way of thinking coming out. When I installed gnome-core it change KDM's theme. I have never bothered to changed anything with KDM or KDE. I am not a big skinner/theme user. I only use a computer a a tool so I always keep things looking the way they came installed. This confused me because all of a sudden KDM had the gnome back ground image and my face browser, what I use to click on user(s) to log in was gone. I though I was using GDM now.
In my panic I tried to uninstall GDM which was never installed. I thought this was weird since my default theme and behavior for KDM was no longer the same. I thought aptitude and Synaptic was broken.
I decided to install GDM just to see if things might be different and they were I had new options that have never been available for KDM before this verified that the package was never installed and that this was a theme change. I never new that themes existed that could exclude the face browsing functionality.
I unistalled GDM went to KDE's website and search for a KDM theme that supports face browsing and I was once again able to log in using a face browser.
My question is how can I get the original KDM theme back? Is this theme available some where for download, like other KDM themes?
