Login screen


Hi,
I'm running a SuSE 7.3 fileserver which I just upgraded tot SuSE 8.1. It works great so far but the very nice login screen from SuSE is gone and now I have a very simple one in return.

Does someone know how this happened and how to get the other one back.

It depends what was there in the first place KDM or GDM, they might interchange each other, KDM defaults to KDE and GDM defaults to Gnome, see whatever is default there for you and I think SuSE comes with somesort of a tool (probably through Yast2) to change default desktop environment.

I don't have gnome on my system.
But I know it updated KDE2 to KDE3.

Use kde's control center module to configure your login screen.

That won't work, doesn't matter what I change in the login manager settings, it won't change back to the original login screen. :-(

I re-installed KDE and now it's back to normal.

Now I have another question.
I recently installed SuSE 8.1 and work and I got a console with a blue/white line around it and a blue/white background. This looked awesome.
Now here's my problem, I updated my SuSE 7.3 server at home to SuSE 8.1 and I still have a boring and simple console. How can I also get that blue/white screen on my server at home?

I can't rightclick on my console since it isn't the KDE console.
