Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 847363
Wallpaper not spanning on dual monitors
Last modified: 2017-12-06 07:52:45 EST
After hooking up another monitor to my videocard (Nvidia chipset),
I discovered that setting one wallpaper to span both screens isn't possible.
There is no "span" option. Available options are: tiled, zoom, centered, scaled and fill screen.
This means that if I set a wallpaper it gets displayed on both screens, one spanning wallpaper is not possible.
A rough workaround is based on packages of Fedora 12
1. Install the following two packages:
2. Downgrade the following packages:
The same problem and fix are already described in bugreport 556369 (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=556369 related to Fedora 12) and bugreport 616701 (https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=616701 related to RHEL 6.0).
Apparently this problem could be easily solved.
Please include the fix if possible :-)
