Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:11:34 EST
Description of problem:
Until some undetermined recent date, "gnome-screensaver" used to display
a stylish login panel when the "Floating Fedora Bubbles" theme was chosen.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Choose "Floating Fedora Bubbles" screensaver.
2. Lock screen.
3. Hit a key.
The boring unlock panel of "gnome-screensaver" pops up.
The nifty blue Fedora style unlock panel pops up.
This used to work in FC5 and recent snapshots of FC rawhide.
the lock dialog theming was changed to be independent from the selected

Which is the gconf key to set?
