Ubuntu 14.04’s Default Wallpaper (Suru) Has Been Updated

Hello Linux Geeksters. As you may know, the default wallpaper of Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr (called Suru) has been released a few days ago and it is in the style of the classical Ubuntu default wallpaper, following an Origami concept of folding paper.

Ubuntu 14.04's Default Wallpaper (Suru) Has Been Updated

Not long after Suru was revealed, Canonical’s Dimitri John Ledkov has noticed that the wallpaper does not behave well when stretched, and reported the bug on Launchpad:

“On main screen the center dot is not in the center of the origami folds. Similarly, whilst the gradient of the folds is the same as the grid-pattern diagonal, the dots don’t line up on the fold. On the off-screen the grid circle-of-friends is not in the center of the origami fold,”

This issue has been already fixed and most likely, the new wallpaper is already available via the default repositories of Ubuntu 14.04.

As a reminder, Ubuntu 14.04 Trusty Tahr will be released on the 17th of April, coming with a lot if interesting new features, including: locally integrated menus (a feature also present on GNOME 3.12), improved shutdown dialogs, a new feature that allows the users to increase the volume up to 200%, a rewritten Unity 7 with support for window filtering by title, Unity Control Center as a replacement for GNOME Control Center, and of course, a new default wallpaper and 11 other pretty wallpapers submitted and voted by the community. Also, the Login Screen and the Lock Screen have been made to look identical.
