How to get the login banner to display in the login prompt box.

I have several Redhat Workstation 3 boxes and I need to have a login banner on the login prompt box. We used the "Welcome" line in the gdm.conf file but I cannot adjust the font size so the text takes up the whole screen.

etc/issue only puts the login banner on the text interface. I need a way to put a banner on the graphical interface when users login.

Hi,

You can do this:

1) Run gdmsetup and choose the theme that you like.  Take note of the theme here.
2) Put in a custom Welcome Message say something like "My Company"
3) Find you theme (from 1) in /usr/share.. for example I am using happygnome... and it is in /usr/share/happygnome/
4) Edit the xml file.. mine is happygnome.xml
5) Find the welcome-label, it has a xml tag for font type and size there.  Change it to your liking.
6) Alternatively, edit the background.svg with the text that you like.

the welcome-label will show up on top of the welcome box (normally, depends on your theme really).  The picture (.svg file) will be the background of your login screen.
