gnome-shell shows a large multiline text banner on the login screen with a scroll bar

Solution Verified - Updated -


  • In the RHEL7, the default size of banner message box is very small and the user must scroll to read the entire large banner.
  • Is there any way to show the entire login banner message without a scroll bar or to configure the size of the display box ?
