Hi

These little Scripts change the KDE Theme on every login into an other.

The Scripts work on Debian an should work on other Linux too but i think on SuSE you must edit the Scrips.

The Script work ONLY in MODERN and NOT in CLASSIC!!

You must have KDM Theme Manager installed. http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php?content=22120

And sudo and perl are needed too.

Just open the Scripts and look what they do.

Enjoy!

To install the KDM-Random Theme switch please do the following:

1. Run kdm_ran_change_gui to make the Index-file of the installed Themes.
1.2 Click on the OK-Button on the OK message box.

If you download new Themes and you want it to have they in the changer you must restart kdm_ran_change_gui!!

2. Look in your KDE Autostart directory like :/home/manuel/.kde/Autostart
If kdm_ran-change_d is there -> ALL GOOD otherwise plz copy it to your Autostart dir. Make it executable.

cp kdm_ran-change_d $HOME/.kde/Autostart
chmod +x $HOME/.kde/Autostart/kdm_ran-change_d

3. Execute kdm_ran-change_d

4. Relogin and see a random KDM Theme

Have Fun

The config and backup of kdmrc ist stored in $HOME/.kde/share/apps/kdm_theme_switch/

No liability is assumed for damages to hard and software !!

To run these scripts you need sudo and perl.

Hi, this is a good idea. i didn't try your script yet, but maybe soon :) there should also be a random ksplash option or script. would be cool if some adds a random option to kdm-theme-manager too :)

About kdm theme manager:
Finally kdm theme manager is working now. maybe the rpm was compiled with a diffrent kde-path (/etc/opt/kde/... instead of /opt/kde/...) so changing the theme in kcontrolcenter didn't take any effect on the correct kdmrc.
i made symlinks (ln -s) and now it works fine.
