Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 469141
KDM clock label overflows the login box
Last modified: 2008-11-04 12:25:21 EST
Description of problem:
The date/time label runs over the right boundary of the login window, at least at 1280x800, my attempts so far to fix it have been unsuccessful. I tried changing:
<pos anchor="w" y="32" x="80%"/>
to any of:
<pos anchor="e" y="32"/>
<pos anchor="e" y="32" x="100%"/>
<pos anchor="e" y="32" x="0"/>
<pos anchor="e" y="32" x="0%"/>
none of which had the intended effect.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Try to use KDM on a 1280x800 screen.
Clock overflows to the right.
Clock appears fully within the box.
See also bug 469048, but this is not the same bug.
I can confirm it on my 1280x800 laptop. It seems OK with max-width set for label.
solar-kde-theme-0.1.12-1.fc10 tagged f10-final.
Uh, now it's overflowing again, I have no idea what changed, maybe the contents of the date string ("November" rather than "October" maybe?), but in any case I see it overflowing again now (with 0.1.12-1.fc10). :-(
I'm afraid this needs more work.
As unlikely as it can be, I also upgraded kdebase-workspace to a build with the KDM session-button patch, so there's some remote possibility that that could also be causing it (though I don't see how, as it only touches a popup, so it shouldn't be affecting the layout at all).
I'm trying similar trick as for welcome label - box with centered clock label and constrained to match login box. So it won't overflow but truncate it.
Kevin. could you please try 0.1.15-1?
Looks fixed, hopefully this time is the good one. :-)
latest build tagged, closing.
