Description:

============WARNING!============
It's only idea-don't ask me how to get kdm look like this from screenshots. For today it's impossible to make kdm look like this.
You want this kdm look? Vote for it on:
http://bugs.kde.org/show_bug.cgi?id=78155
================================
Hi guys! I decided too show to all world "the way that KDM should look". I think that KDM is today the worst login manager from all Desktop Environments. Look at GDM-beautiful!!, Windows login manager-very nice. And KDM? Sorry, but so great desktop environment as KDE should have better login manager. So KDE developers-please write better login manager. I'm not a programmist yet, but I can help with design and in projecting config file if someone will decide to do it.
Ps.1.There's nothing to download-only screenshots
Ps.2. Sorry for my bad english




Changelog:

-added to wishlist on bugs.kde.org

 Great Idea.

Include Redmond style is not the way to bring new users or to satisfy the old users. We need a new KDM and these screenshots are a good start.

sorry for the english..=)

 skins & extensions

I agree with you that KDM needs an update. But not just a redesign:

KDM should be re-done to make it highly skinnable. It should be possibly ...
- to add small applets (like a clock, flash animation and more) similar to the Kicker
- to add various graphics (background, animated gifs, icons, ...)
- to configure if you want to see a list of users or just enter login and password
- to use it as a password protection for a single user system (no login input field, just password)
- to extend it with voice reckognition and similar (no text input at all)

Does anyone know the Navi-System of SE Lain (Japanese Animation)? I'd love to see something like that in the future (still dreaming ... :-)

i do understand that so many people would like to see this BUT:
do nort forget, that kdm is mainly a login manager - not an eye candy tool.
allowing skins etc. opens A LOT OF etries to the system (e.g. a skin producer could use a malformed bitmap to force buffer overflows a.s.o.) so the code should better not be to complex to avoid bugs!
Therefore i rather think there should be rather 2 login managers (probably sharing a lot of code)
- one to provide access to systems that need security.
- another one for the "home user" with nice pictures and animations.

just my 2

Why should kdm look like that, after all you spend no more that 5-10 seconds loggin anyway. You can theme it, add icons or a pic and even you own colour scheme.

I have a nice SuSE logo, my own pic of a user and the plastik theme.

Because it's "showcase" of environment. If you will see something beautiful you will want to see what is next (so will login). Imagine that you see 4 computers & you are never saw any OS. On first computer you have GDM, on second MacOSX login screen, on third WinXP login screen, and on fourth you have KDM. Which computer will you chose?

In your way of thinking we also don't need nice ksplash (we see it only few seconds everytime), bootsplash (the same reason), lilo image and many other things. And there are lot of person who really don't need this-terminal is enough for them. And that's OK. But many people (for example me:-)) want to have not only fast, stable, flexible etc. OS, bu also beautfil. If you don't need nice KDM you can also login from text console:-D.

Ps. I will soon post new images, because I'm sick of hearing that it's too "XPish", smilar to Microsoft etc. I think it's wallpaper that I used on first image fault. For me it's more similar to GDM.

 KDM

I am sorry but are we talking about the same KDE log-in manager???

I used Mandrake 9.0 9.1 9.2 and now 10.

The Kde Login has ALWAYS been fully configurable as compared with the others you mentioned which in MY opinion are quite ugly. Except for personal reasons I would show you how mine looks (it includes personal images) All my friends who have seen it love it.

Your suggestion looks reasonable except that it looks more like Microsoft than anything else but if that is what you like then thats OK. Personally nowadays I can't stand any thing that even hints of Microsoft.

The Desktop of the future is already here .......Mandrake with KDE.

Entrance is the new login manager thats part of the E17 Desktop Shell (the next big thing from the enlightenment folks) from what i gather its 100% skinnable and configurable. check out www.enlightenment.org for details

How do you like Plasma 5?
 The best KDE Desktop ever.
 Definitely a nice improvement.
 Not decided yet. Haven't tried it yet.
 I do not like some of the changes.
 KDE is taking the wrong way.
 I am still sticking with KDE 3.5.
 I have no opinion, but wanted to vote anyway.
