Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 443308
splash borders look ugly
Last modified: 2008-04-28 12:00:13 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
log into kde4
Steps to Reproduce:
1. boot live cd
2. it automatically logs in
3. see the ugly splash
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.
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
I will try to contact author of backdrop to get version without rounded corners
Fixed in fedora-logos-9.0.0-2.fc9, requesting tagging.
fedora-logos-9.0.0-2.fc9 tagged f9-final.
