I have the login-scan-fusion and it works fine, but when it shows the splash screen it doesn't fit on the screen, it seems to be too big so I can only see part of it.
I tried changing to "BaseResolution = 1024,768" on the Theme.rc but it stills the same.
How can a fix this???

Awesome work...just a small hitch that i had - had to change the coords for LabelCoords2 in the Themes.rc file to 410 to avoid the clutter between "validating:" and the login name

Is this a known issue?

I use the splash screen and the KDM theme, and I was wondering if whoever made this or the other could release a wallpaper that's stripped down of the kandprint and all scan and login fields. I think the background art looks very nice and I'd like to use it as my wallpaper, but the handprint and the fields on the left are making it look kinda silly

Hello,

on the screenshots it looked really great,
i thought it would be a great login experience for my fully encrypted system hehe ;)

but after installing login-splash and login-fusion, i get a white screen, and partially no background in between both login-*. do they should flawlessly work together w/o noticing that they are represented by 2 different programms?
and the splashscreen shows no background at all, kinda strange.
any ideas? :=)

so long...

for those that are having a problem with "validating: #username#" not displaying correctly, it might mean you do not have the "trebuchet" font installed on your system. when i installed it, it fixed the problem (since this is the font specified in the theme.rc file)

It may as well be so, but let's not forget what does the MS in Trebuchet MS stands for...

As far as I know, MS fonts are not included by default in any Linux distro (nor I think they should be, even so-called "free" ones that are in fact the only ones that legally can be included), and there are people (I for one) who would rather choose not to use (and therefore associate themselves with) anything that can be in any way linked to MS, even if it's just an apparently insignificant little thing like fonts.

Kudos to Airyk for the fix, I do believe not everyone shares my thoughts on the use of MS stuff and will therefore benefit from the proposed solution, but may I at the same time appeal to the author to elect not to use MS fonts as default ones for his otherwise fine work, not only because of the Anti-MS rhetoric, but also because such choice apparently causes trouble for the majority of potential users who, chances are, do not have the required fonts installed.

Besides, one should always be extra careful in such matters, the Trebuchet situation can be relatively easy to solve because Trebuchet is one of the "free" MS fonts, but imagine if by accident one of the proprietary MS fonts, like Tahoma, was used?

Yeah, I had the same problem, the "username" variable being right next to the "validating" text, so it looked like validatingmilos (in my case), which indeed does not looks right, so this is what I did, though I suppose this is a rather crude solution, but nontheless it worked for me...

I modified the theme config file, namely Theme.rc, in my case found in /home/milos/.kde/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/login-scan-splash, and what I changed is the Label2 entry. Not knowing how to enter the space, I have simply changed the label coordinates, the parameter LabelCoords2 now having a value of 400,641 while the LabelCoords1 was left with the default 270,641. This is how the Theme.rc file looks now:


[KSplash Theme: login-scan-splash]
Name = login-scan 'splash'
Description = splash for kdm-theme 'login-scan 'fusion''
Version = 0.2
Author = rokkford
Homepage = http://www.rokkford.de
Engine = Moodin

BeginOpacity = 0.0
BaseResolution = 1280,1024

Background = Background.png
UseIconSet = false

ImageCoords1 = 682,285
ImageCoords2 = 682,138
ImageCoords3 = 805,239
ImageCoords4 = 805,94
ImageCoords5 = 928,314
ImageCoords6 = 925,170
ImageCoords7 = 1122,472
ImageCoords8 = 249,418

Labels = 2
Label1 = Validating:
LabelFont1 = Trebuchet MS,18,-1,5,50,0
LabelCoords1 = 270,641

Label2 = ML:USER:loginname
LabelFont2 = Trebuchet MS,18,-1,5,50,0
LabelCoords2 = 400,641

StatusCoords = 270,804
StatusFont = Trebuchet MS,12,-1,5,50,0


Now, there probably exists a better, more refined solution, but this one worked fine for me, and while I suspect the exact same values will not work for every system out there, I guess a bit of trial-and-error will result in the values that will produce the desired effect. When I log in now, it quite nicely spells validating: milos

when the splash starts should be "validating: #username#", but in my theme it comes "validating#username#", which is not too beautiful to read :/ maybe the italian translation of the theme is bad?

Report

there is no translation of this theme.
it's all generated by your local language settings.

Are there two versions of the splash theme that are loaded either if xinerama is enabled or if it is disapled?

I ask because I see two different versions. If xinerama is enabled I see: 'validating: #username#'
and if it is disabled I see: 'validating:#username#'

Oh and there's one more difference. If xinerame is enable the images 'faded in' are not transparent. Instead they have a black background (which is the background colour of kdm btw). If xinerama is disabled, then the background is transparent.

What I have described above is only true for my desktop running the 'fglrx' driver. On my laptop (i810) it does not matter if xinerama is enabled or not. It's always: 'valditating: #username#' and the images are transparent, too.

I use the same linux distros on both system, same versions of kde, moodin, login-scan-[splash|fusion]

cheers
