splashscreen background?


Im wondering if anyone knows how to set a picture for the kde splashscreen backgrounds?

Now to avoid usleless posts let me explain in detail:

Im not concerned with the splashscreen itself. You know the little box that pops up and shows you that everything is loading properly? You know the little box that pops up in the middle of the screen? Thats the splash screen. I have a dozen of those.

I want to know how to add pictures to the background behind that little box. Behind the little box that pops up in the middle of the screen. I dont care about the little box, I want to know how to add pictures to the screen behind the little box. Behind the splash screen

Since that background is an image file, you could try editing it using the Gimp. Import the pictures you want to add, and make a montage, which you can then save as a jpg, png, or whatever.
