login manager vs login screen


login manager in the controll panel vs login screen in the start menu under system settings. i dont see where the login manager settings get used. its not contolling anything for me. the login screen is though. im running kde on redhat 8.0.

im confused what does the login manager do. its not getting used on my system.

thanks,
AD

In Control Panel, are you selecting Administrator Mode (probably bottom right hand corner) before making changes?
What exactly do you want to "control"?

well like i said if i go into login manager there is appearance, font, background, session, user, convenience options none of which get used on my login. where can i go to see the effects of any changes i make to login manager. i don't see any changes. is there different login managers or something.

thanks for the reply,
AD

That's a redhat bug really, the KDE Control panel will configure the KDE login manager, but RedHat uses the GNOME login manager. If you want to configure the GNOME login manager, use the provided redhat tools in K/System Settings.

Note in GNOME (which redhat do better integration for it seems) there is no such control panel applet
