are you sure you're not using LDM, the LTSP Display Manager?

if there is no /opt/ltsp/i386/etc/lts.conf, or if there is no SCREEN_##
(where ## is a number) defined in lts.conf, my guess is you're using

if it is LDM, you would have to create a theme in
/opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ldm/themes/ (see other directories there for

and then set that to the default theme:

chroot /opt/ltsp/i386 /usr/sbin/update-alternatives \ 
   --install /usr/share/ldm/themes/default \
   ldm-theme  /usr/share/ldm/themes/YOUR_NEW_THEME 95

(if, by chance, this is not i386, change i386 with whatever you are

hopefully someday, themeing in LDM will be as simple as GDM. (or a real
LDM-like mode for GDM exists).

live well,
