Hello there,
is it possible to test the kdm .xml file without the need to install the theme into the system?

I am trying to design a new kdm theme which would match the splash I made Smile However I don't really understand anything that's inside the .xml so I have to apply the trial-and-error method Very Happy

You can try asking the art-team on irc or maybe they might chime in here.

I would test it and install it in systemsettings though, it can be removed from there just as easy as installing it.

Yeah, I know it's pretty easy, but it would be nice to test it on the run - like only hitting reload or something Smile

You can use xserver-xephyr for testing kdm themes without having to relogin into your desktop.
See: http://lab.aptosid.com/art/wiki/Develop ... Procedures
