LXer: Ubuntu fix: Login screen too big, regular screen just right

Published at LXer:

I've had this problem on one machine ever since I installed Ubuntu 8.04 LTS. It's a triple boot, with Ubuntu 6.06 LTS on one of the other partitions, and I never had this problem with the older LTS installation. Basically, the Ubuntu login screen in 8.04 is too large to fit in the dimensions of the monitor. Once I'm logged in, my resolution is 1024x768, which is exactly how I want it. But the login screen is so huge, I don't get the Options menu on the bottom, which comes in handy if I want to log in with another window manager.
