RE: [trinity-devel] New startup splash screen for TDE: Architecture

Hi Alex,
it looks pretty good, at least in the picture. Please create a bug report and attached the same file, so we do not
forget about this one. Hopefully from January I will have more time for TDE and start looking at a few pending things
that have been waiting way too long.


I don't know why, but the TDE bugzilla page can't be loaded for now, so for the moment I'm uploading it here.
I changed the resolution of the background picture to full HD, instead of the extra-high resolution I use in Gimp.

We have to remember that the Moodin theme engine was completely broken as of KDE 3.5.10, and now Tim added (for me! Thanks!)
a feature to resize properly the background picture to fill the screen, to adapt it to the resolution.
It does work, but as I already pointed out in a bug report about Gwenview and KuickShow, the resize picture is not of very good quality.

I think that something could be done to get a high-quality resized picture, probably just changing an argument to the resizing engine.
I posted 2 picture, to let you see the difference, and if this problem is solved, it will enhance tremendously the appearance of this splash.

TDM is able to produce a high-quality resized picture, but Gwenview, KuickShow and KSplash Moodin engine can't.

Have a great day!
