Interesting.

What happens when you change the wallpaper?

Does the problem continue even after you install video driver?

Sounds that you discovered the feature to change the wallpaper
automatically depending on the day time… :slight_smile:

The default Gnome wallpaper on OS 11.1 is changing darkness according
the time of the day. It uses 4 images and it looks like you posted the
night version…

look under /usr/share/backgrounds/glass. It shows 4 images and a XML
file witch controls the color changing of your background.

WOW :slight_smile: I thought it was just a bug :smiley:
Can I do such thing with a custom wallpaper?

I’ve been having fits with my new pc set up. I thought the wallpaper
getting darker was one of the symptoms or I had been slipped some crazy
pills. :stuck_out_tongue:

I was looking for new wallpaper designs, and when I started reading this
thread, I saw the topic of the “darkening” of the initial wallpaper.

This happened to my installation, too. I was surprised. It is nice to
read that it is not a flaw, but something that is built into the
program.
