I get a 404 error whenever I try to download this KDM. This makes me sad. The splash screen downloads just fine.

Nevermind. I had to click the "click here" link rather than waiting for the countdown.

Together with a self-made GRUB theme it makes the transition from turning on the computer to the final desktop so elegant and smooth. Who needs a Mac then? :P
Would it be possible for you to create a screen saver of this style as well? Having the blue color and the kubuntu logo randomly changing position, similar to the Windows Vista screen saver? Would be much appreciated. :)

I really like it. So I have the nice Kubuntu boot splash, then comes the similar looking kdm screen, after that the nice KDE splash screen and finally my desktop. So it is a so-convenient look :)

But, is it possible to remove the kubuntu icon or at least the five dots below it in the kdm theme? It looks a bit weird and unneccessary, as there is no progress going on. Still my favorite :)

But maybe with a think input bar for name and for password it's cooler :)

1. My layout doesn't quite work, the entry boxes go too far left and the icons are overlapping out of the login area onto the background

2 - I'm not sure I like the black background, can that be changed or can you release a version with the lighter background as per the first screenshot?

3 - Perhaps just not to your taste, but my girlfriend and I always prefer when there's a list of users to click on, it's much quicker than having to type the names in.

Really nice though, I hope it goes into Kubuntu, it's a shame to have inconsistent artwork across plymouth - kdm - splash - desktop.

1. Should now be fixed

2. A white variante is now available

3. I will have a look if this can be done with this layout. Please give me your ideas where to add a userlist and maybe how it could look like. At the moment i have no idea how it could look like.

I hope this will become part of kubuntu 10.04, too. Or the Kubuntu Art Team make another one which integrates well with plymouth.

Thanks, I will try out the new version this evening.

Re: user list, I liked the theme shipped with KDE 4.2 in this respect, see e.g.
