Description Dave Malcolm 2007-05-11 09:03:52 EDT
Description of problem:
Am running rawhide (post F7T4) on an HP Pavillion dv1100 laptop.  Regular X
resolution when logged in is 1280x768.

The gdm login screen looks poor: the FedoraFlyingHigh theme looks like it's
being displayed with the wrong aspect ratio: everything is scretched vertically.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
Appears to only affect initial login.  Once logged in as my normal account,
upong using the user switcher, the gdm screen looks fine.

OK: it doesn't seem to be the background: it's the user icons:  they're
stretched vertically, to an extent that it looks noticably wrong.

Reassigning to gdm
Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2007-05-11 09:31:11 EDT
can I get a screenshot?
Comment 3 Dave Malcolm 2007-05-18 11:54:03 EDT
BTW how would I get a screenshot?

In any case, after an update to latest rawhide, this is working much better now:
the login screen is attractive on this laptop; closing RAWHIDE.

I believe the resolution in gdm may now be set up correctly to match the screen
aspect ratio.
