Description louisgtwo 2003-01-09 21:42:03 UTC
if RH8.1 is going to use the same default desktop background as 8.0 this patch
make the default background color be the same as bluecurve. This patch minimizes
the flash effect when you login before nautilus draws the background. This patch
is alreadey included in libgnome but I have modified it for bluecurve.

Good idea.

Comment 3 louisgtwo 2003-01-09 22:28:30 UTC
If you can change XFree86 root window's color to be the same I believe this
would be completely unnoticeable.

Comment 4 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-09 22:53:19 UTC
Indeed, why don't we make the default xfree root window color match 
the bluecurve color, instead of black?

Comment 5 louisgtwo 2003-01-10 00:35:27 UTC
Actually, I was talking about that lighter shade of blue (aqua?), before the
splash screen come on. This is in init 5 login in from gdm, not starting X from
the console.

Comment 6 Mike A. Harris 2003-01-11 07:16:07 UTC
One of the X11 specifications, specifies that the root window must be
comprised of blackpixel and whitepixel.  I don't have the precice
citation handy however, but I could look it up if need be, although
it would waste some time to do so.

Comment 7 Havoc Pennington 2003-01-11 07:34:11 UTC
As Keith points out, you can just as well ignore that spec, since an app 
can't rely on the root window being whitepixel/blackpixel anyway - another 
app may have changed the root window color at any time, such as xsetroot.

But he also says that video hardware is going to require clearing to black to 
reset the video card anyway, so there's not much to gain.

I'm going through bugs assigned to me and attempting to clean some of the older,
fixed ones up.

This bug hasn't changed in over a year old now.  Are you still seeing the problem?

This bug has been in the NEEDINFO state for at least a couple of weeks now.  I'm
going to close the bug, but if you can provide the required information feel
free to open a new report.
