Description Michael Wiktowy 2007-03-30 04:03:16 UTC
Description of problem:
Normally the SVG desktop background images are tiled. When any of the default
SVG image backgrounds are chosen and scaled to fit the desktop, the edges are
not straight as you would expect from a vector image.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
F7test3 LiveCD

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Change desktop background to one of the SVG images included
2. Change the image layout from tailes to one of the scaled choices

Actual results:
Straight edges are blurry and blocky

Expected results:
Smooth edges should stay smooth as scalability is one of the primary benefits of
vector graphics.

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2008-04-03 23:51:05 UTC
Based on the date this bug was created, it appears to have been reported
against rawhide during the development of a Fedora release that is no
longer maintained. In order to refocus our efforts as a project we are
flagging all of the open bugs for releases which are no longer
maintained. If this bug remains in NEEDINFO thirty (30) days from now,
we will automatically close it.

If you can reproduce this bug in a maintained Fedora version (7, 8, or
rawhide), please change this bug to the respective version and change
the status to ASSIGNED. (If you're unable to change the bug's version
or status, add a comment to the bug and someone will change it for you.)

Thanks for your help, and we apologize again that we haven't handled
these issues to this point.

We will be following the process here: to ensure this
doesn't happen again.
