I have all of the backgrounds waiting and ready to go albeit without
logo. In order to fix the dm issue, new darker backgrounds are needed.
This will fix the gnome icon issue aswell.
Are we wanting to have time of the day progressions, if so, the
plasma-wallpaper package is ready to go, but would need to be changed
in the kde defaults.

If we go for plain background, I can push them along with a new
lock.png for plymouth and ksplash today. If we choose time of the day
stuff, I will have to edit the pictures a little for the icon.

So, let me know and I can hit mgarepo ci....
