Cannot change login GDE splash screen


Hey,
I'm trying to change the GDE login screen from the default blue fedora screen. However i just can't change it. I've tried using the GDEconfig from the terminal and GUI but even though i've changed the options here it doesn't change a thing on the splash screen and it stays at the default. I've heard of other people having this problem on Fedora but nobody has offered a solution. Anybody got any ideas??
Thanks in advance.
Graham

If you are sure nothing is working, try editing /etc/X11/gdm/gdm.conf and finding the appropriate line for the theme entry.

update:

Sorted this out by removing GDM and installind KDM theme manager. Incidently, i've also ditched gnome in favour of KDE. It's all good now, i think it was a problem with GDM.
