Description Joachim Frieben 2009-10-03 11:03:40 UTC
Description of problem:
After a fresh install from the "rawhide" tree, setting /apps/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme to "system" has no effect other than changing the dimensions of the dialog window and removing option "Leave a message ..".
Thus it looks like the themed dialog window is used but without the theme. Not only an appropriate "Constantine" themed logo is missing, but the present "Charge" themed one which is


is not being used. The actual unlock dialog window is simply grey.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set /apps/gnome-screensaver/lock_dialog_theme to "system"
2. Lock screen.
3. Press some key.
Actual results:
Unthemed unlock dialog windows of reduced size pops up.

Expected results:
Themed unlock dialog windows pops up.

Additional info:
Used to work in F10. I am unsure about F11, but if it worked then the theme had not been adapted to the "Leonidas" system theme.

Reassigning this to gnome-screensaver... if fedora-logos needs a change to resolve this, lemme know (I'm on CC here).

Comment 2 Ray Strode [halfline] 2009-10-07 11:57:20 UTC
The plan was to remove support for


It sounds like support got partially removed, but it still makes some changes.

Comment 3 Brian C. Huffman 2009-10-28 19:18:30 UTC
So, themes will no longer exist for the lock dialog?  Will the look of the default dialog be changed before the final version?  The current look/feel of the dialog is very plain and unfinished.

Comment 4 Joachim Frieben 2009-11-07 12:37:30 UTC
No improvement for fedora-logos-12.0.3-2.fc12 but the size and number of buttons still depends on this gconf key. Reassigning to gnome-screensaver even though having a nice themed unlock dialog panel would be much better?

Comment 5 Bug Zapper 2009-11-16 13:13:29 UTC
This bug appears to have been reported against 'rawhide' during the Fedora 12 development cycle.
Changing version to '12'.

More information and reason for this action is here:

This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 7 Bug Zapper 2010-12-04 07:34:34 UTC
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
