It's really difficult to accomodate for every single language/resolution, so I'll just tell you what to do to fix it to your own taste:

As root, open the file /usr/share/gdm/themes/BlueSwirl/blueswirl.xml for editing. Then change line 105 from:

<pos anchor="w" y="50%"/>

to:

<pos anchor="w" x="-30%" y="50%"/>

Of course you'll have to check whether the -30% is too much or still too little. You can adjust that value till you find one that works.

Glad that you like it. - Dec 28 2005

At the moment, it is not possible to get an exact replica of the 1280 layout on a 1024 layout since the image sizes are fixed. So, although the screen gets smaller, the "gnome-foot" stays at the same size; and since everything is anchored to the center and offset by a fixed number of pixels, the effect of reducing the screen size is that some things tend to be left out. Same thing goes for the "Mot de passe" .. the login box was meant to accomodate "Password" so the other languages (depends on how long) would tend to spill over the designated area.. Again, the solution might be to just tweak the *.xml file and change the font size yourself ...

The way out is probably to design a completely new package for the lower resolutions. Right now I don't have the time so you might have to wait a little longer(unless someone has an idea on how to make the existing package scale over all resolutions ..) - Nov 08 2005

Version 0.3 of the theme should now be usable with lower resolutions. - Nov 07 2005

Glad that you like it. Could you please tell me the issues with 1024x768? I am aware of the fact that the pam_error gets smeared over the login box -- that's easily fixed by reducing the font size .. but is there anything else? - Nov 07 2005

Thanks! Somehow the "Pixel Girl" theme had it smeared around the login box .. - Nov 01 2005
