Description Paul W. Frields 2005-12-21 21:08:12 UTC
Description of problem:

Dual head monitor use is becoming commonplace enough to warrant inclusion of a
suitable background image.  I don't see any reason to include a whole bunch;
just the default Fedora themed image should be sufficient in 3200x1200.  I can
do one by stretching the unadorned section of the existing image, and attach the
results here, but I would think it would be preferable for Diana to do one from
the original sources first.

Here you go...

Whoops, reassigning to proper component, sorry.

Comment 3 Evert Verhellen 2006-03-16 01:42:54 UTC
I came across this bug when searching for "my own problem". My 23" display is
1920x1200 pixels so I also require a larger version of the 1600x1200 default
image. Cropping the posted 3200x1200 dual head version will do for this purpose.
However, I can image that some users with a 30" display of 2560x1600 pixels may
wish for another version of the default image ... Maybe there should be an SVG
of the common aspect ratios (4:3, 8:5 and the dual head derivatives) in the package?

Diana, we need one for the rhel default background too.

Comment 7 Alexander Larsson 2006-07-26 19:13:41 UTC
desktop-backgrounds-2.0-34 and fedora-logos-1.1.45-1 adds a wide background for
fedora. We still need one for RHEL.

Comment 8 Matthias Clasen 2006-07-28 15:20:51 UTC
redhat-logos-1.122-1 should have beta backgrounds, including wide versionss
