|Summary||0003462: CentOS 5.3 fresh install has an erroneous "CentOS Cubes" theme for the login window|
|Description||After performing a fresh CentOS 5.3 install from the x86_64 DVD, I went into System > Administration > Login Screen, and noticed that there are two themes offered:|
- "CentOS Cubes"
- "CentOS Default"
In the visual preview, both themes look identical. i.e., the preview of the "CentOS Cubes" login theme does not indicate that it's the same 5.2 theme that actually did feature the "cubes"; rather, the preview of the Cubes login theme in this window reveals it to look the same as the new Default theme (that is, using the new Tree Flower artwork).
I've attached a screenshot that shows what I'm seeing.
By default, the "CentOS Default" theme is selected as the *default* login window theme.
Anyway, I decided to go ahead and select the "CentOS Cubes" login theme, and then I logged out.
However, upon logging out -- and thus returning to the GDM login window -- I was shown an empty black window with a simple error dialogue, which read:
There was an error loading the theme CentOSCubes
Failed to open file '/usr/share/gdm/themes/CentOSCubes/background2.png': No such file or directory
Once I dismissed that error dialogue, I was then presented with another one, reading:
There was an error loading the theme, and the default theme could not be loaded.
Attempting to start the standard greeter
Finally, after dismissing after that error dialogue, I was taken to the plain ol' GDM standard greeter (without any theme), where I could log in again.
Once logged in again, I was able to use Login Screen preferences to change the machine's login theme back to "CentOS Default" (note that "CentOS Cubes" was still listed as the other option). After that, the CentOS Default login theme worked properly in the GDM window (as it originally had upon first boot before I tried changing the theme to "CentOS Cubes").

Hmmm. I've tested these packages so often, somehow this slipped through ...
|It appears that the CentOS Cubes theme is not included in the latest redhat-artwork (5.1.0-28), while it was included with the previous redhat-artwork (5.1.0-26). This is apparent upon doing an 'rpm -ql' on both packages and diff'ing the output.|
Strange. I thought I packaged that, so people wanting to stay with CentOS Cubes could stay there.
I look at that over the weekend, if time permits.
Just to save you the trouble of doing the diff on the RPMs:
max:~/temp  rpm -qlp redhat-artwork-5.1.0-26.el5.centos.i386.rpm > r26
max:~/temp  rpm -qlp redhat-artwork-5.1.0-28.el5.centos.i386.rpm > r28
max:~/temp  diff -iw r26 r28
As you can easily see, version -28 does not include CentOSCubes, while version -26 does. Hope this helps.
Would you be willing to test the -29 packages in
? They are signed with the key 0xFD0BEDE5. Please ignore the "br" repo tag, this comes from my internal build system.
|Have you tested those packages?|
|Is your request (to test) directed at me or cepheid?|
|I am unable to test these packages as the CentOS server I manage is headless and I don't manage the "headed" one.|
oogabooga: Both of you - if possible. It works for me, but I'd like to have a second opinion before we do an update.
|I installed rpm successfully via supplied http link. Message does not appear any more. I don't know what to expect the appearance/behavior to be. The message was my only sense that anything was wrong. It does not appear any more and login proceeds as normal. I would say this is the fix.|
Okay, we'll push that as an update soon.
|Reopening as requested in bug #4743 .|
