Description:

KDM theme based on my photo of the sunrise on the Great Ocean Road - http://www.kde-look.org/content/show.php/Sunrise+-+Great+Ocean+Road?content=54727
If anyone can tell me how to take a snapshot of the KDM, please do so. I've tried Xnest, but haven't been able to get the actual login screen to show.
This is my first KDM, so I hope it works!

Get one by putting this line in your $KDEDIR/share/config/kdm/Xsetup file:

sleep 10 && import -window root /home/you/Desktop/kdm.png

Then when KDM next loads, don't log in straight away, or it could just take a picture of your background, the "sleep 10" means it will wait 10 seconds before taking the shot. Then when you do login, you will have he screenshot on your desktop.

Thanks, but when I do this I only end up with a snapshot of the KDM background, not the login screen. No matter how long the sleep interval, the login screen only appears after the snapshot is taken. Ideas?

The only thing I can think of is that the screenshot is being taken too soon, or you you are logging in too soon. When the KDM screen appears, don't login, wait until ImageMagick has had a chance to take the screenshot and then login.

Failing that, you could always try Xnest.
