View Full Version : [gnome] Background thumbnails in preferences broken.

Hi All,

Thank you in advance.

I've been playing around with fluxbox, and I've really been liking it. Anyhow, for reasons that aren't pertinant to this problem, I went back to Gnome for now. But a whole bunch of stuff was screwed up. I've been able to fix most of it, but I'm having the most perplexing problem.

When I open an appearance preferences window and go to the background tab, my thumbnails are distorted. I have a dual head setup with two widescreen monitors, so when I have a 1680x1050 image tiled, I usually expect to see two of them side by side in the thumbnail. Somehow, the application is misunderstanding my resolution, so when I tile the images, the thumbnails have about 27x14~380 tiles in the thumbail! Please see the attached screen-cap' for a more clear illustration of the issue.

I haven't been able to use the latest kernel (I'm still on the 19 kernel) because it won't recognize my xwindow setup (it starts in low graphics mode and tells me I need to set it up). Might this be in any way related?
