Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 163192
Clock text on GDM login screen partly partly outside screen
Last modified: 2013-03-05 22:43:53 EST
Description of problem:
In some situations, the hostname/clock text at the bottom-right corner of the
login screen (RHEL theme) is scaled incorrectly (letters too big), so that only
the upper half of the clock text is visible.
Note that this is definitely not due to not a badly tuned monitor, it's a real
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Seems to depend on monitor/resolution. For me, it fails on simple 1024x768 CRT
monitors and it works fine on LCD monitors, someone else reported the same
problem with a Dell 2100FP LCD monitor.
Me too on a Hitachi CM753 CRT
Mine has this problem too. NEC AccuSync 95F 19" monitor in 1600x1200 mode.

Red Hat Enterprise Linux GDM theme XML file to fix clock location
This is still an issue after update 2 where redhat-artwork was updated to
redhat-artwork-0.120.1-1.2E. The file I attached in comment #3 should fix the
Ian Laurie's file works for me. Thanks!
This is still an issue as of "RHEL5 beta 1". I'm using an "LG L1710B"
flat panel monitor attached to an "IBM ThinkPad T23". Package version
is "redhat-artwork-0.243-4.el5". I had observed this issue first for
"RHEL4 beta 2" ... as a matter of fact quite a while ago.
Have you tried the fix from comment 3 ?
I have just tested it and it actually does prevent the clipping of
date and time.
This bug is fixed in redhat-artwork-0.120.1-3.1E.
