Description of problem:
Once logged in to a gnome session, a user can configure their preferred default text size as a preference.
Unluckily for those who need a larger default text size, the login screen uses (particularly on the input fields) a fairly small size.
Given that there is no shortage of space on the login screen, can the text size for just this screen be larger?
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
Changing the defaults to be bigger sounds reasonable to me.
It's a bit hard to do, though, I think. We'll basically want to
- Change the fonts in the default theme to get the display text
- Change the gdm source code to change the input field text size. Probably the
best way to fix this is extend the XML greeter theme format to allow an optional
gtk+ theme/gtkrc be provided for the widgets on screen.
- Then we'll have to point the greeter at a different gtkrc.

I think this is fixed now. The login screen is now certainly bigger.
Closing it then.
