Thank you.

I just wanted to see if it was possible.

One more thing, it may be stupid, but how do I change my background image at the login screen, and how can I change the image of users listed in the login windows - also via shell?

regards,
Adnan M.

the wallpaper is in /home/username/.kde/share/config/kdesktoprc
this file contains the variable Wallpaper=<path/to/where/the/wallpaper/image/is>
the Splash is in /home/username/.kde/share/config/ksplashrc
Theme=<splash/theme>

Thanks for that.

But how do I change the page before i login to kde, the main page where I should enter my password and username. I would like to change that background and to change the picture next to the username.

That is probably not a question about kde.

regards,
Adnan M.

Well this depends from the display manager you are using. If you are using KDE's display manager (KDM)
the main configuration file is kdmrc and the background can be configured from backgroundrc.
In my system both are located in /opt/kde/share/config/kdm
