Re: [desktop] debian backgrounds package

Hi I look at the wallpapers, and they are great...!!

By the way, about the resolution, why not 1280x1024, since everyone could reduce size if need. 
Or yet you can make a debian install to ask for the size used, and if the size is small than 1280, you can reduce it to fit the screen.
