Themeing (SuSE-Elegant?)

Feature state

openSUSE Distribution
Unconfirmed

Description

Hi
What about changing the Default-Theme to SuSE-Elegant from Cristian Rodriguez?
See
http://kde-look.org/content/show.php/SuSE+Elegant?content=117251
+ the there mentioned links for the look.
At least providing a package for simple change of the various grub/boot/kdm/kde-screens would be neat.

Regards,
Steffen

User benefit:

It might be a matter of taste, but I think it looks way cooler and more modern than the default greenish look while still providing a SuSE-specific style.

I also have switched my 11.3 theme to SuSE-Elegant, destroying my system's ability to boot in the process. Now everything runs fine with it and it boots great, but it would be cool to have it as a default option or at least make it easier to configure.

And when we're at it, a higher resolution version of the boot screen would be cool. I use a big screen. The GRUB loader from SuSE-Elegant fills the screen, but the subsequent screens are all in a lower resolution, which looks pretty bad until I've logged in.

Is the boot splash really dependent on the desktop environment? It looks great, but I'm using GNOME. Maybe I'll try messing with it later and see what I can come up with.

I updated the SuSE-Elegant theme to support far more resolutions, and fixed aspect ratio problems at several resolutions. Please consider using my variation of the theme. You can find it at:

The theme is in full running on 122, 32 and 64.

I changed the size of password.png in the loginscreen from '100'x'100', to '50'x'50', which looks a lot better.

Dale took the trouble to ceate a plymouth version. (where to put the file for downloading?)

The Gfx version is only take a 'silent 800x600' image from the 7,5MB openSuSE-Elegant pkg, rename to back.jpg and: # gfxboot --add-files back.jpg
