KDE 3.x Splash Screens by rokkford 36 comments

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]
