Description Josef Kufner 2008-08-06 23:27:56 UTC
Version:           3.0 (using KDE 4.1.0)
Installed from:    Debian testing/unstable Packages
OS:                Linux

I'm using 12 desktops in 4x3 grid (4 horizontaly, 3 verticaly). So when desktop grid is activated, it stretches all desktops (whole grid) to fit screen. But it is ugly and windows are deformed. Wallpaper is not deformed, only windows. When I try same with 3x3 grid, it has same aspect ratio as screen, everything is ok and it looks good. And 12x1 grid is unusable -- it looks like barcode :)

Solution: Scale desktops with correct aspect ratio and fill screen with black margins. It is same situation when viewing 16:9 movie on 4:3 screen.

Thank you and sorry for my english...
