Looks like this is split across two lines in rawhide
(gdm-2.16.0-10.fc6).  Can this be closed now, Subhransu?
Comment 2 subhransu behera 2006-09-29 12:43:39 EDT
Yes, it is displayed correctly in gdm-2.16.0-10.fc6.

Hence, the bug can be resolved now. 
Comment 3 Jens Petersen 2006-09-29 12:51:00 EDT
Though the password label box still seems too narrow:
for Japanese too "Password" and "(_P)" get split over two lines
on a 1280x1024 display.

Can it be made wider?
Comment 4 subhransu behera 2006-10-03 03:29:22 EDT
Hi Jens

The (_P) is not in the msgid of the po file. So it is not required. And the
password label is displayed correctly now.

Comment 5 subhransu behera 2006-10-03 03:34:13 EDT
Hi Jens

There are two strings actually in the po file. So probably it is taking the one
which has (_P).

So in such case we need to make the lable wider !

Moving to redhat-artwork.
Comment 7 Jens Petersen 2006-10-16 01:57:02 EDT
[This is like fc5 bug 180117 but for fc6 artwork]
Comment 8 Caius Chance 2008-03-27 00:07:14 EDT
Now is fc9 and GDM has been significantly changed. According to my testing today
(27 Mar 08), the password label is not translated similar to many fields at GDM
login screen.

I'd presume the previous translation needs some work to be used by new source
Comment 9 Caius Chance 2008-03-27 00:08:41 EDT
Hi Ankit, could you arrange translation update on this please? Rgds, Caius.
Comment 10 Ankit Patel 2008-04-03 00:59:46 EDT
Hi Caius,

As of now, we don't have any resource for Oriya language. Sorry, we can't fix it
in this release.
Comment 11 Caius Chance 2008-04-03 01:17:16 EDT
Thx Ankit so pls keep in record then.
Comment 12 Jens Petersen 2008-04-10 01:41:45 EDT
F9 gdm has changed so much that I don't think this applies anymore there.
Reducing version to F8: though even there I'm not completely sure.

This bug is about widge field width?
