NSA Theme (for 1280x800 only!)
KDM3 Themes
Description:

** This theme is only for 1280x800 resolution screens! **

This is a theme I made for the fun of making a "mysterious" theme where every button is hidden.

*** READ THIS (or you will be totally lost!) ***

As I wrote, this is a very mysterious theme.
In fact, the Session button is hidden in the blue stripe of the escutcheon. The text "Session" will appear when you put your mouse on that area. ;)

The System Menu button is well hidden since it is on the left star of the NSA seal (right under "National").


There are two versions: the first one (nsa-image) will display an error image on which is written "ACCESS DENIED".
The second version (nsa-text) will only display "Login failed." on the left of the screen.


Give me feed back, and have fun using this cool theme ;)

PS: sorry for the very little screenshot which is actually the background image but I haven't figured out how to take a screenshot of KDM since no one with X is logged in...

PPS: I am looking for a host to upload both themes together and I cannot upload it here because the file is too big (1.170 KB)

I love this theme! would it be possible to port it to KDE4/KDM4 ?

It's funny to see people trying to access my laptop :-)

Any idea how to install this in SUSE 10.1? The instructions given don't work (no "~/.kde/share/apps/kdm/themes" folder and no "~/.kde/share/config/kdm/kdmrc" file).

Thanks

Joe
(and just so there's no confusion, I know what "~" is!) :-)

Hi,

When I install a theme, I copy the files of the theme directly into the root directory. It maybe isn't thet best solution because you maust be root to do that, but that'swho I do it on my machines.

To do so, extract the archive directly in your KDE share/apps/kdm/themes root directory. The problem though is that that directory changes depending on your platform. I haven't got Suse Linux, but under my Gentoo Linux, it is in /usr/kde/3.5/share/apps/kdm/themes . The you have to edit the "all users" (root) kdmrc file (which, for me, is in the kdm directory in /usr/kde/3.5/config/ ).

Another alternative is maybe to create the directories and files in your home directory. I'm not sure that works though ... :/

ANy other idea, anybody?

Thanks. This will take longer than I thought to figure it out. It seems SUSE uses their own system that overrides KDE's.

You do have to install it in KDE's main directory (/usr/kde/, /opt/kde/, etc), if KDM is run by root on your system. In most cases it is.

I'm not think it is good.
Anyway, thank you.

That's ok if you don't like it.

All that matters to me is that some people like it, and that I had fun creating it (even though I had a hard time at the beginning because there are NO tutorials anywhere on how to make a KDM Theme).

Anyways, thank you for your comment, I appreciate that. ;)

I know they probably read my email (like anybody else's email) and they know all sorts of stuff on me, but I can't do anything about it. Therefore I don't have any real opinion on the NSA it-self.

But the first goal of this theme was to create a discreet theme where everything is hidden. At first, I even wanted to hide the username and password boxes so you HAVE to know where they are is you want to login. I though adding the "NSA" background could give an even more mysterious look to the theme. ;)
