Description Vitezslav Humpa 2012-07-27 07:40:55 EDT
Description of problem:
Using the accessibility menu of the same kind as inside the logged gnome-session, the 'Large Text' option doesn't make any changes to the font size or DPI in the login screen

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
Toggle 'Large Text' on in the login screen
Actual results:
Nothing happens

Expected results:
Font size increases in the full gnome-session fashion
Comment 1 Ray Strode [halfline] 2012-08-03 16:59:19 EDT
I think you're original component was probably correct.

The heavy lifting for doing font size changing is handled by gnome-settings-daemon.

The fact it works in the session suggests it's probably overly aggressive lockdown in GDM.

tentatively, moving back to GDM
