And, yes, kde-misc/ksplash-engine-moodin is installed on both. I noticed that the former laptop does not have the directory ~/.kde3.5/share/apps/ksplash/cache/Moodin/Lines/1400x1050/ whereas the latter laptop does have the directory ~/.kde3.5/share/apps/ksplash/cache/Moodin/Lines/1680x1050/, so I wonder if this has something to do with the problem? If I get a chance I'll create ~/.kde3.5/share/apps/ksplash/cache/Moodin/Lines/1400x1050/ with the resized Background.png in it, to see if that makes a difference.
Actually I was mistaken. I must have been looking in the wrong directory: there is
a directory ~/.kde3.5/share/apps/ksplash/cache/Moodin/Lines/1400x1050/ in the former laptop (the one with the SL 4.0-r1 x86 installation). So now I'm at a total loss.

-Lines/1680x1050 and Lines/1280x800, both containing similarly named files.
How did you get the FingerPrint theme in there, I wonder? On my SL 4.0-r1 x86 installation there is a directory called FingerPrint in the directory /usr/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/ and it contains the files 1.png to 8.png, Background.jpg, Preview.png and Theme.rc. In the ~/.kde3.5/share/apps/ksplash/ directory I've got the following three directories:
both containing the files 1.png to 8.png, Background.jpg and info
~/.kde3.5/share/apps/ksplash/Themes/ is empty.
The file Theme.rc for the FingerPrint theme was written by the author of the Moodin plug-in, and it contains the line "Engine=Moodin", but it and the other files in the FingerPrint directory are all dated July 2005, so maybe the file Theme.rc is an earlier method of configuring the Moodin ksplash plug-in. Anyway, as I wrote earlier, the whole thing appears to be a mess.
