Description Ethan Soucy 2020-03-19 15:15:06 UTC
Created attachment 1671485 [details]
Lock screen showing background only applied to top-left of screen.

Description of problem: When scaling is set to any value other than 100% the blurred background image on the lock screen is squished into the top-left corner of the screen.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): Fedora 32 Beta, gnome-shell 3.36.0

How reproducible: Lock the screen with scaling set to a value other than 100%.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set display scaling to value not equal to 100%
2. Lock screen

Actual results: Background image is shrunken into the top-left corner of the screen.

Expected results: Background image should cover the entire background in the lock screen.

Additional info: None of the other background or lock screen adjustments change the outcome. Switching between stretched, spanned, centered, etc doesn't fix the issue.

Comment 1 Ethan Soucy 2020-03-19 17:17:30 UTC
This only occurs with fractional-scaling enabled via command:
gsettings set org.gnome.mutter experimental-features "['scale-monitor-framebuffer']"

I can confirm this problem, also reported https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1818541 before I found this.

Comment 4 Patrik Martinsson 2020-04-01 11:48:10 UTC
This is being tracked and worked on here https://gitlab.gnome.org/GNOME/gnome-shell/issues/2239

With gnome-shell-3.36.1-2.fc32.x86_64 this particular issue is fixed.

Comment 5 Fedora Program Management 2021-04-29 17:09:38 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 32 is nearing its end of life.
Fedora will stop maintaining and issuing updates for Fedora 32 on 2021-05-25.
It is Fedora's policy to close all bug reports from releases that are no longer
maintained. At that time this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a
Fedora 'version' of '32'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version.

Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not 
able to fix it before Fedora 32 is end of life. If you would still like 
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version 
of Fedora, you are encouraged  change the 'version' to a later Fedora 
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

Comment 6 Ben Cotton 2021-05-25 17:54:49 UTC
Fedora 32 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2021-05-25. Fedora 32 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
