Change Behavior of KDE Login Manager (KDM)
Applies to: SUSE LINUX 9.3
You are missing the feature whereby you click on a user picture in KDE login manager (KDM) to log in to your SUSE LINUX Professional 9.3.
Edit /etc/sysconfig/displaymanager as user root and change the entry
To accomplish this, you have two options:
1. Use YaST2 sysconfig editor:
* Start YaST2
* Go to 'System' -> '/etc/sysconfig Editor'
* Open: 'Desktop' -> 'Display manager' -> 'DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME'
* Delete SUSE
* Click on finish
2. With an editor of your choice. You do not need to start a graphical session as root, just follow these few steps:
* Press ALT+F2 -> type konsole -> and press run
* Type su - and press Enter
* Enter the password for the user root (please note: no * or other signs will be displayed)
* Open the file /etc/sysconfig with your favorite editor (for more information please have a look at ASCII Editors (http://portal.suse.com/sdb/en/2002/0...ii_editor.html
* Change DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME="SUSE" to DISPLAYMANAGER_KDM_THEME=""
* After you have made these changes, save the file, exit the editor and run the command
SuSEconfig --module kdm3
To complete all changes, please log out of your current session. The next time KDM starts, you will be able to log in using the user pictures again.
