Error in symbolic link, thin client logon screen

Have tried to change the login screen on thin clients in edubuntu by using
this formula:

sudo cp -r /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ldm/themes/Edubuntu
sudo rm /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ldm/themes/default
sudo ln -s /opt/ltsp/i386/usr/share/ldm/themes/MyTheme

After doing this the thin clients only produce a gray screen with no icons,
but the login still works.

Searched the net for a fix for this, but no luck.

Checked the permissions for the folder and files and they are the same as
the original folder. (edubuntu)

Tried to delete the symbolic link and set it back to the edubuntu folder
with no luck, still the same error.

Could someone that still have the login working please check where the
symbolic link where supposed to point and post it here? 
I belive that the error is in the default link, not in the folders or

Folder have permissions 755. Tried other combinations...
The default link have permission 777, not possible to chmod.

(btw... I'm a newbie to linux)
