Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 52646
gdm background is overlayed with RH default
Last modified: 2007-04-18 12:36:38 EDT
Description of Problem:
If a custom background is selected for gdm via gdmconfig, the Red Hat default background is still displayed. If this is selected via the login gui, then the chosen background is displayed and the RH one immediately redisplayed.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use gdmconfig
2. select the background tab.
3. select image and choose a file
4. select restart after logout

Upgrading to the lates gdm fixes this. Vanilla gdm-188.8.131.52 under seawolf behaved correctly.
If you delete the "background program" from the Background tab in gdmconfig,
then the redhat thing won't be drawn.
