Bug Description

When Eye of Gnome is started from Nautilus (as a default viewer for images) or a command line with the name of image as a single parameter, the window size is always a bit smaller so that the image is displayed with 99% zoom (no matter what the actual image size is). The image looks a bit blurred then if displayed 1:1 zoom.

Ubuntu 8.04 x86_64.

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. Unfortunately we can't fix it, because your description didn't include enough information. You may find it helpful to read "How to report bugs effectively" http://www.chiark.greenend.org.uk/~sgtatham/bugs.html. We'd be grateful if you would then provide a more complete description of the problem.
 We have instructions on debugging some types of problems. http://wiki.ubuntu.com/DebuggingProcedures
At a minimum, we need:
1. the specific steps or actions you took that caused you to encounter the problem,
2. the behavior you expected, and
3. the behavior you actually encountered (in as much detail as possible).

Sorry for not being specific.

In Gnome with Human look and compiz window manager, start nautilus and go to a folder with an image, which resolution is smaller than your screen size (say, about 75% each way).

Double click on the image and nautilus will start Eye of Gnome with the picture displayed.

For images smaller than screen size I would expect that not scaling is applied and the image displays at 100% (pixel for pixel or 1:1 view).

EoG alwayz displays the image scaled down to 99%.
As a side effect, the image looks blurred (which is normal - after downscaling, some sharpening should be applied and I do not expect that EoG will do that since then it would be slow).

Attached you can find a test image (feel free to use elsewhere or distribute) and a screenshot with highligted zoom percentage.

I assume that problem is caused either by window decoration or by wrongly calculated window size of EoG.

Let me know if it is still unclear.
