You need a

UseTheme=true

line somewhere in kdmrc. Look for the section that already has line(s) starting with "Use" and put it there.

Hmm, just thinking...don't you also need at least KDE 3.4?

UseTheme=true, should be set and the path to your new theme should be something like Theme=/opt/kde/share/apps/kdm/themes/ThisSpring instead of Theme=~/opt/kde/share/apps/kdm/themes/ThisSpring.

You have to use KDE 3.4 to use KDM-themes

Are you sure you're not actually using gdm (instead of kdm)??

edit the file /etc/rc.d/rc.4 and comment out the stuff about gdm, so it loads kdm, then to use themes go here http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=22120. This is a KDM manager, much easier. You can find it in kcontrol under system admin.

# error
echo
echo "Hey, you don't have KDM, GDM, or XDM. Can't use runlevel 4 without"

thanks for some more useless info maginotjr . crocodilu did you follow my link and get the KDM theme manager?, they have a slackpack so all it needs is a quick installpkg.

The diagnostics is:
/opt/kde/lib/kde3/kcm_kdmtheme.so: undefined symbol: _ZN9KListView18setShadeSortColumnEb
Possible reasons:
An error occurred during your last KDE upgrade leaving an orphaned control module
You have old third party modules lying around.
Check these points carefully and try to remove the module mentioned in the error message. If this fails, consider contacting your distributor or packager.
