I think you can login as root and disable sound in Kontrol Center. - Apr 12 2004
Kde > 3.1.93 needed. - Apr 08 2004
And what? It's too bad? I think we can get good ideas from other OS'es - Mar 26 2004
When I have 2 monitors, I'll write support for Xinerama. But if I does'nt have >=2 monitors how can I do it? :) - Mar 26 2004
What QT version you use? - Mar 26 2004
What is you libc version? - Mar 25 2004
If you can, do some new icons, please. - Mar 25 2004
Daemon behavior? It's working... But if it not working for you - it's bug. Send me /var/log/mdm.stderr.

You can set login icon in file $(HOME)/.login_icon. You want $(HOME)/.user.png? But why .png? May be .jpg? It's not very good. - Mar 25 2004
Kde > 3.1.9* needed. But you can safely remove this line. But there are can be many more kde 3.1.9* dependencies. - Mar 25 2004
I will do this when I have time. - Mar 25 2004
Thank you :) - Mar 25 2004
No. You only can change placement,colors,pixmaps. Look&feel only in Xp-style. And this is my goal. :) - Mar 25 2004
try before ./configure do
export CXXFLAGS="$CXXFLAGS -fexceptions". Or try to delete all occurences of "-fno-exceptions" in generated Makefile's. - Mar 25 2004
Themes are very simple. Theme is a tar.gz file, consists of themerc file and images used in this theme.
Example themerc file:

[Theme]
Iconbar_X=0.7
Iconbar_Low=0.9
Iconbar_High=0.1
Iconbar_Space=0.03125
Iconbar_Icon=0.05
Background=lime.png
Passline_Size=0.25
Passline_Color=128,146,64
Passline_Border=64,73,32

All values (except colors) from 0 to 1. When drawing, they scaled to screen WIDTHxHEIGHT. - Mar 25 2004
I can't make icons myself. If anyone do them, I replace current icons. - Mar 25 2004
>GDM
I do not use GDM because I do not have gtk/gnome on my computer.

>dont tellor expect KDE developers to use it for the next version, because they will not.

I do not expect this. I do not NEED this. - Mar 25 2004
Kde > 3.1.9* needed. But you can simple comment this line. All will be fine. - Mar 25 2004
I agree that kdm ain't bad. But I do not like it. And when I make a decision to write this program, first I try to MODIFY kdm. But I found this is not posiible. And I can explain why. When kdm want that I use it's own widget for getting login & password... :o( Sorry my stupid english. - Mar 24 2004
>I would prefer a grey screenshot from the last session of KDE as background.

It's not possible. For example, if you exit from X by ctrl-alt-backspace? How to save screenshot? - Mar 24 2004
To install:
./configure
make
make install

After installation you can change current theme in file /etc/mdm.config. Available themes are default.theme and green.tgz.

If something wrong, send me file /var/log/mdm.stderror( if it not very big ). My email red___hat at mail dot ru.

After first start for every user file $(HOME)/.login_icon will appear. In this file you can change your login icon.

To start:
In console run mdm. To replace gdm or kdm to mdm I must know your distribution type. And I know how to do it only for my system now. :( Any feedback are welcome. - Mar 23 2004
