Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 126747
gdm unable to display Welcome banner in Bluecurve theme
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:40:53 EST
Description of problem:
The Bluecurve.xml file lacks a definition for the Welcome banner
set in /etc/gdm/gdm.conf, so it isn't displayed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Try to set a Welcome banner
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Select Bluecurve theme in /etc/gdm/gdm.conf
2. Set a 'Welcome=This wont be displayed' in that file.
3. Get to the gdm login screen, and see that it isn't displayed.
The Welcome banner isn't displayed
A displayed banner.
This is a major problem for those sites which use the banner to
display AUP info or other (possibly legally mandated) warnings.

Sample patch to allow Welcome banner to work
If anybody has a better way to deal with the 'normal color= font=' besides
hard-coding it, feel free to improve it. I have *no* clue where the
"stock type='welcome-label/'" is supposed to get its defaults from....

Fedora Core 2 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for
security updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please
reopen and reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a
security issue and hasn't been resolved in the current FC3 updates or
in the FC4 test release, reopen and change the version to match.

Rediffed for redhat-artwork-0.122-3
Still an issue in the current -devel tree (redhat-artwork-0.122-3). I've
attached a rediff'ed patch against that version.
Setting severity to high since patch is available. In future we need a new
keyword for this
This bug has been filed against FC2, and in the meantime, gdm has been
rewritten, and doesn't support the Bluecurve theme anymore. Closing.
