Bug Description

I have a high resolution display with 3200 x 1800 on a 13-inch display. The scale factor (set in the display setting tab of system settings) is set to 2. The live wallpaper only covers the lower left corner covering a quarter of the screen.

When the desktop scale factor is set to 1 instead of two, the wall paper covers the whole screen. However, that make menus, buttons, etc. too small to work with.

I assume that while determining screen size, the wall paper does not account for the scale factor.

The scale factor is set via dconf in the schema "com.ubuntu.user-interface". the property is scale-factor. Normally the value is {'eDPI': 8} in high res displays this is set to {'eDPI':16}.
