Yes, the versions of the extension I saw only showed the logo on the default
OK, a lot of quick action on this, on the part of several people
yesterday and this morning. Here's what we discovered:
Package bug: https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=1161637
Upstream git: https://git.fedorahosted.org/cgit/background-logo-extension.git/
(1) The SRPM in the bug appears to be *newer* than git (includes
e.g. prefs.js, control utility). Maybe something wasn't pushed?
However, the SRPM seems like it should work.
(2) We need to package a wordmark, since that works visually better

< 100% opacity was desirable. Ryan has sent that on to Spot to add to
(3) The package needs a .gschema.override file to point to the new
logo. That seems like the right thing to do for a distro-specific
