With the new fedora background being almost black when logging on the root
window is blueish before nautilus can draw the background. Can the color of the
root window be changed to match?
Comment 1 Matthias Clasen 2006-09-11 12:19:39 EDT
We should wait for the final background before doing this, though.
Diana wants to lighten it up a bit.
Comment 2 Adam Jackson 2006-09-15 17:01:56 EDT
Moving this one to gdm, plain X doesn't have the ability to set any root window
color at startup besides black.
Comment 3 Matthias Clasen 2006-09-22 10:00:08 EDT
the problem seems to be that we are setting two different colors in two
different places:

/etc/gdm/PreSession/Default gets the color configured in the gdm config file
and sets it, then later

/etc/gdm/Xsession includes /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc-common, which overrides that
with a hardcoded color of #222E45.

The fix would be to move the xsetroot call from xinitrc-common to xinitrc.

fixed in 1.0.2-11.fc6
