Re: XDM theme

When I use xdm and login, my kde menus are empty, and most of the application shortcuts on the desktop dont work.

I setup grub so that I can choose to go to console or gui login.

If I boot to console, login and then do startx, everything is good.

Any ideas.

You need to source your paths and environment variables. Put that:

[ -f /etc/profile ] && . /etc/profile
if [ -f $HOME/.bash_profile ]; then
  . $HOME/.bash_profile
elif [ -f $HOME/.bash_login ]; then
  . $HOME/.bash_login
elif [ -f $HOME/.profile ]; then
  . $HOME/.profile
fi

at the top of your ~/.xsession file.

I've never used xdm before, and am running kdm on my HTPC for automatic X login.

Is there a way to do automatic login with XDM?

Not sure about xdm, but gdm can do automatic login. You'll need to google/read docs for more info.

Re: XDM theme

Hi,

The posted screenshots look really good.  Unfortunately, all the links seem to have gone to the big web link pit in the sky...

Does anybody still have this tarball online, or could somebody post a fresh link?

Cheers

Re: XDM theme

[URL=http://mitglied.lycos.de/bauerbob/snapshot.png]Here[/URL]'s my xdm style. It's not arch-specific, but I've got a question: how can I disable the outer box around the login/password-box? I'd like to keep the 2 inner boxes for login and for password, but I'd like to get rid of the outer box.

Re: XDM theme

@thorstenhirsch I think you have to put this line into your /etc/X11/xdm/Xresources:
xlogin*borderWidth: 0

Re: XDM theme

That's what I thought, too, but no, I already have set this parameter to 0.
Here's my Xresources:

xlogin*login.translations: #override 
xlogin*greeting: Hostname: CLIENTHOST
xlogin*namePrompt: Login:
xlogin*fail: Login incorrect
xlogin*greetFont: -adobe-helvetica-bold-o-normal--12-240-75-75-p-138-iso8859-1
xlogin*font: -adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--12-180-75-75-p-98-iso8859-1
xlogin*promptFont: -adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal--12-180-75-75-p-103-iso8859-1
xlogin*failFont: -adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal--12-180-75-75-p-103-iso8859-1
xlogin*greetFont: -adobe-helvetica-bold-o-normal--17-120-100-100-p-92-iso8859-1
xlogin*font: -adobe-helvetica-medium-r-normal--12-120-75-75-p-67-iso8859-1
xlogin*promptFont: -adobe-helvetica-bold-r-normal--12-120-75-75-p-70-iso8859-1
xlogin*failFont: -adobe-helvetica-bold-o-normal--14-140-75-75-p-82-iso8859-1
xlogin*geometry: 300x110+360+560
xlogin*borderWidth: 0
xlogin*frameWidth: 0
xlogin*innerFramesWidth: 1
xlogin*shdColor: yellow
xlogin*hiColor: yellow
xlogin*background: red
xlogin*failColor: yellow

When increasing borderWidth, there's a new frame around the box with a different color. So the outer box is coming from shdColor and hiColor. I already tried using the background color for shdColor and hiColor, but then the inner boxes disappear, too.

I think there's no way to get what I want - except for drawing the inner frames into the wallpaper and setting shdColor and hiColor to the background color.

Re: XDM theme

...which is doing exactly the opposite of what I want: removing the inner frames and not the outer one. I also tried

xlogin*outerFramesWidth: 0

but this has no effect.
