Though it doesn't work for me, there is a module in systemsettings under Advanced -> Login Manager.
But it freezes for me.

you need to run it as root to set the kdm theme. Try run it with
Code: Select all
kdesudo /path/to/systemsettings

kdesudo is Kubuntu-only

For the rest, you can use kdesu:

Code: Select all
`kde4-config --path libexec`/kdesu systemsettings


I'm not sure if downloading new themes actually works already.

That's strange. If you click on login manager even if you didn't open System Settings as sudo, it should prompt you for your password then open up the login manager in its own window.

No, it works for me to open it as normal user, but nothing can be changed. Trying to open as root freezes my UI.

Oh yeah, Kubuntu and Fedora use a patch for that. I forgot.

Ok, then let's try a different way.
Download a new KDE4 kdm theme.
Open /etc/kde4/kdm/kdmrc as root.
Search for a line like this:

Code: Select all
Theme=/usr/lib/kde4/share/kde4/apps/kdm/themes/oxygen


change it to point to the directory of your newly downloaded theme.
If it works, enjoy ;)

:'(

I used this method also with previous version of kde...
but it seems that doesn't go for this...I download the theme love...

:-$
when I make the reboot I have an alert: "kdm theme not found"

ok..I think that we cannot waste other time to this "small" problem..because there are many other problem..

I can suppose the problem is that the kdm themes is for kde3 and not for kde4..:-S
