Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 209258
Username in unlock dialog box appears as '%R'
Last modified: 2015-01-14 18:20:02 EST
Description of problem:
The unlock dialog box doesn't show the correct user name. It simply shows the
characters '%R' (without the quotes) where the name should be shown.
The authentication method used is NIS.
Other places where the username should show up does indeed show the username
e.g. "Log Out <username>..." where <username> is replaced with the expected value.
Also, the unlock dialog box is not themed even when using the fedora-bubbles
screensaver (screensavers-system). Setting
/app/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme = "system" re-enables the fedora look
and feel for the unlock dialog.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Enable NIS authentication
3.Attempt to unlock screen
Unthemed unlock dialog shows up with the literal string '%R'
A fedora look and feel themed dialog with the proper username instead of '%R'
user_switch_enabled is NOT set.
Fedora Core 5 and Fedora Core 6 are, as we're sure you've noticed, no longer
test releases. We're cleaning up the bug database and making sure important bug
reports filed against these test releases don't get lost. It would be helpful if
you could test this issue with a released version of Fedora or with the latest
development / test release. Thanks for your help and for your patience.
[This is a bulk message for all open FC5/FC6 test release bugs. I'm adding
myself to the CC list for each bug, so I'll see any comments you make after this
and do my best to make sure every issue gets proper attention.]
This issue is still present in the latest Rawhide.
gnome-screensaver-2.22.1-1.fc9 handles the user name correctly.
