Thread: abbreviation of short names in login screen only with nvidia drivers

  1. #1

    Default abbreviation of short names in login screen only with nvidia drivers

    on my opensuse 12.3 with nouveau drivers my login screen appear in this way:

    and with nvidia drivers in this way:

    as you can see in the login with nvidia picture the first user is"I..." an should be "Io" as in the login with nouveau picture, it is enough short and should not be abbreviated.
    and furthermore the resolution do not seem the same (1920x1080) or at least the font dimentions seems different...
    why this??? how can I have my first user not abbreviated?? may be a bug???
    thanx, ciao, pier :-)

    You can use my grub2cmd bash script to change the default resolutions and I even have an example in one of the blog comments: GNU Grub2 Command Listing Helper with --help & Input - Blogs - openSUSE Forums , since this only affects the login, I am not sure I would lose a lot of sleep over the issue, but it is OK to try and get it fixed.

    Root shown on your login screen? (i ask, because it should not be!!)

    For the nvidia driver you should be able to set the system's screen resolution (which the login screen uses) with nvidia-settings
