Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 72056
Last letter of hostname cut off
Last modified: 2013-03-13 00:45:46 EDT
Description of Problem:
Due to the slanted font, the last letter of the host name, "l" in my case, is
cut off at the right side of the hostname, which looks bad.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Having a hostname ending on "l", for example.
we could just go to non-italic perhaps.
I tried an even simpler solution: just add one space on both sides of the text.
This seems to work fine! In Bluecurve.xml I now have
<text> Welcome to %h </text>
and it now looks ok!
A theme bug really, moving to redhat-artwork
Yuck, we can't add the spaces because it will change the string and lose
all translations of this text.
Wait, there's massive space around the "welcome to hostname" string - do you
have 800x600, or the world's longest hostname? ;-)
No, the string is cut off at at the right near to the baseline of the string.
Try yourself. I don't know why either...
And all translations seem to be in the file itself, so adding spaces to each of
them will solve the problem.
N/A in new login screens.
