Re: Odd-sized wallpaper

Just an update to the question of odd-sized wallpapers for wide screen, dual monitors and the like...the problems have been filed as bugs [1 & 2] but it looks like currently the solution is to provide a set of wallpapers in 5 popular sizes. It would be awesome if someone (with more technical skills than I) can look into tweaking some code to allow the proper (or best fit) wallpaper to be chosen depending on the screen size.

Is it possible to have a default available for different aspect ratio

widescreen display, it looks a bit strange.
I would second this suggestion, but would like to see it taken even
further.  Multi-head displays are becoming more common these days, but
most wallpaper isn't designed to look very good when spread across
multiple displays.  Mostly this is due to the aspect ratio, but also
because the wallpapers don't look very interesting when tiled across
multiple displays.

I'd like to see at least a minimal set of wallpapers for additional
resolutions/aspect ratios, like widescreen, 3200x1200, 6400x1200, and
various combinations of multi-head widescreen displays.


I think making wallpapers for all resolutions is not too hard. But
let's focus on recommending more wallpapers to rock fc6.
