Description Philipp N. 2008-04-20 10:30:23 EDT
Description of problem:
After logging in, kdm disappers and a splash appears at a blank blue desktop.
This splash has edges which seem to match with the desktop background, but the
splash disappears before the desktop is there, so I cannot confirm it.

It is better to use either an alpha channel to make these edges invisible (you
can see through it) or use the color of the desktop.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
fedora 9 preview live cd

How reproducible:
log into kde4

Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot live cd
2. it automatically logs in
3. see the ugly splash
Actual results:
ugly edges

Expected results:
no edges

Several factors played in here.

1.  fedora-artwork didn't deliver any requested kde artwork -> SIG members
produced what we have
2.  artwork wasn't finalized until *very* late in the dev-cycle.  Resulting in
some inconsistencies (as you noticed).

So, any patches/contributions to help here would be appreciated.

Comment 2 Philipp N. 2008-04-20 13:36:45 EDT
Gnome does not even use this splash at all (by default, only if you activate it

What about a splash similar to Kubuntu and some others: They use the whole
screen as a splash so "this splash + the desktop background within one single
image" is an option?

The offending KSplash theme is actually in fedora-logos. But I'll leave this 
assigned to us because we're responsible for it, I'm also CCing the author of 
the theme.

I will try to contact author of backdrop to get version without rounded corners
