Description amit yadav 2014-08-06 18:56:34 UTC
Description of problem:

On boot, the banner is present.  Enter a username (valid or invalid), enter a bad password twice. The login page resets, requesting a username again, but without the banner.

This same thing can be seen by entering a username (valid or invalid) and then clicking "cancel".

Login banner works well until the screen shield starts and rolls down a clock and date display. After that the banner is gone. 

Also it prompts twice for username. Restarting gdm returns the banner.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):


How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set login banner in RHEL7
2. Enter a username (valid or invalid), enter a bad password twice.
   Or Enter username (valid or invalid) and then click "cancel".

   Or Wait for screen shield(screen losk) to start. 

3. After that the banner is gone. 

Actual results:
Banner disappears

Expected results:
Banner should not disappear and it should not ask twice for username.

Additional info:

Tried to disable lock-screen using dconf-editor and gsettings to workaround this issue:

   gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.session idle-delay 0
   gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.lockdown disable-lock-screen true
   gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.screensaver lock-enabled true

Also tried gnome-shell extensions:

But nothing worked.
