    Default Wallpaper sizing after resolution resize

    I have BT4 installed on a dell netbook which is normally tied into a kvm switch with my monitor and keyboard for my tower.

    Everything works peachy, but when I boot up at the start of the day, I have to resize the screen and it jacks up the wallpaper.

    I *tried* to Google and search the forums for this since I assume I'm not the only one to have this problem, but my search results are swamped with "h0w d0 i change my m0nit0r r3s0lut10n!?!?!??!?!?111"

    So you want to have the background image the same as before? If so then you will need to right click on the desktop> Choose Configure Desktop> Then select under options the "Centered Maxpect" option from the drop down menu titled position.
    I mean it was even right there in your provided image. Yours is set to "scaled".

    I'd also like an answer to this if possible. My screen has a res of 1280x800, but the wallpaper loops after 800x600. As you can see in the picture, I have the desktop set to "Centered Maxpect". It's not a huge deal, but it is somewhat annoying. Any help would be appreciated.

    (And yes, I did Google, quite a bit, this is the only relevant post I found).

    This worked for me:
    All changes to files are marked in red. You have to fill in values that fit your monitor so don't copy paste this. Im not the one that has written this solution, but the site where it was seems to like giving a 403 (http://www.ticktockcomputers.com/blo...lpaper-fix/):p

    First make a backup of the files we are going to edit.
    Code:
    cp /boot/grub/menu.lst /boot/grub/menu.lst.bck
    cp /etc/X11/xorg.conf /etc/X11/xorg.conf.backup
    Comment out a line in menu.lst
    Code:
    nano /boot/grub/menu.lst 
    #vga=0x317image=28effc24-0f00-440d-858d-82788dc63056/boot/grub/vga=0x317.xpm.gz
    Edit your xorg.conf file and add DefaultDepth 24 or what ever number you monitor supports. Also add you desired resolution to the different subsections. Start with your highest resolution and go down.
    Code:
    DefaultDepth 24
    
        Subsection "Display"
            # VGA mode: better left untouched
            Depth       4
            Modes       "640x480"
            ViewPort    0 0
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       8
            Modes      "1680x1050" "1280x1024""800x600"
            ViewPort    0 0
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       15
            Modes       "1680x1050" "1280x1024""800x600"
            ViewPort    0 0
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       16
            Modes       "1680x1050" "1280x1024""800x600"
            ViewPort    0 0
        EndSubsection
        Subsection "Display"
            Depth       24
            Modes       "1680x1050" "1280x1024""800x600"
            ViewPort    0 0
        EndSubsection
    Hopefully you can reboot and bask in the glorious beauty of have a normal wallpaper like me at this point. Just copy back your backup files if anything goes wrong.
