Summary0005782: Gnome does not display wallpaper and locked screen image if display scale is above 100%
DescriptionThe Gnome interface shows a blank white background as a desktop background and locked screen image when I set the display scaling to 200% (from Settings -> Devices -> Display) or even 300% (I did not go higher).
But if I set it to 100% it works correctly.
Steps To ReproduceSet the display scaling to 200% or more.

I forgot to mention it's running on VMware.

And apparently, others have the same issue:

Apparently disabling 3D acceleration fixes the bug...

It also seems to have fixed a bug with flickering/misbehaving UI (like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ym0JjAMf3YE )

3D acceleration has been really problematic lately. Especially with the switch to xfce desktop, which made some windows completely transparent. So we recommend disabling it.
I'm closing the issue as this seems fixed now.
