This question documents how we used to inflict the mandatory login banners required on our Linux machines at work. Unfortunately, this procedure is no longer effective with Gnome 3 in Fedora 15, 16 or 17. Gnome 3 seems to ignore the banner_message fields in gconf-editor.

Does Gnome 3 provide an equivalent procedure that allows us to present a warning message to users prior to login?

@sr_, I see that bugzilla entry but I see no evidence that that patch will ever make it into anything. There's been another major release of Fedora since that bug was updated. – Bob Cross May 31 '12 at 16:47
