Description of problem:
The supplied image, /usr/share/backgrounds/images/earth_from_space.jpg is mirror-inverted. North America appears as if it were being viewed from the center of the earth, not from space.
Note the image is not just rotated upside-down; it is a mirror image of the actual orientation and earth would never appear this way from space from any viewer position.
I'm not sure this is actually supplied with the listed component "desktop-backgrounds", because "rpm -q desktop-backgrounds" returns "package desktop-backgrounds is not installed", but this is the nearest listed component function I found.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.Open Menu: Desktop:Preferences:Desktop Background
2.Select image "Earth from Space"
3.View inverted image of North America
Actual Results: I felt strangely confused and disoriented by the mirror-inverted photo of North America.
Expected Results: North America should be viewed as it actually appears from space, or the image should be renamed: "earths_surface_and_clouds_as_viewed_from_earths_center.jpg"
The appropriate orientation of North America can be found by consulting a globe of the earth or a map of North America.
Not much of a bug, but slightly embarrasing. On the other hand, it gives people like me something to do with GIMP.
