hi,
i made two lightdm-kde-greeter themes and need some brave testers  8)

You will do it on your own risk!

fetch the tar and decompress it, read the README-INSTALL carefully.
Hope it works, good luck

greetings hendrik

download:
here from our git

the md5sum, 01edc574d364ca5c577069a070f67e63  lightdm-kde-greeter.tar.gz

EDIT: feedback is welcome, and for shure it works for me!

Thanks, works great. I'm using the indian summer version. Do you have any idea how one could change the buttons below the login fields to something with text?

hi Spacepenguin.

thats not so easy as it seems to be!
My qml knowledge is not the best, and that themes are a copy and paste miracle.
Well i have to learn it, but i have spare time to do so.

What i can offer is to place the text left side of each button, or much to big buttons with text below.

The second option i don't like because its looks ugly.

so open the main.qml and search for row 226

there put following inside

Code: [Select]
Text {
      font.pointSize: 9
      text:"System"
      }

it has to look like this

Code: [Select]
Row {             
    spacing: 8;

    Text {
       font.pointSize: 9
       text:"System"
       }
                     
     IconButton {
        icon: "system-shutdown"

then search for row 292/293
and put following inside before IconButton
Code: [Select]
Text {
   font.pointSize: 9
   text:"Session"
   }

IconButton {
   icon: "system-log-out"

hope thats ok for you.
Before using it, test lightdm like described in the README-INSTALL

Thanks, I'll give that a try.

Do you mind explaining the option for "much to big buttons with text below" too? Maybe that "much too big" might be the right size for me, the current buttons/icons are extremely small.

//.... , the current buttons/icons are extremely small.

solution, open /usr/share/kde4/apps/lightdm-kde-greeter/themes/indiansummer/IconButton.qml
and search for:
Code: [Select]
signal clicked
   
    width: 16
    height: 16
   

change width and height
maybe to 24 or what you need.

Code: [Select]
signal clicked
   
    width: 24
    height: 24
   

Do you mind explaining the option for "much to big buttons with text below" too?

i will provide you a new main.qml but it needs some more testing, so be patient, it will come.

ah,

Code: [Select]
Text {
  font.pointSize: 9
  text:"System"
  }

here you can change the font.pointSize:<n> if 9 is to small for you

And again, make a backup of the original files!!

Hi,
i made one theme with big icons and text below!

  Yet another theme

the md5sum

Follow the README-INSTALL

I only translated it into german at the moment, because this needs time to do that i don't have.
I will do it in some days.
