I'm having trouble adding electricsheep as desktop background in Linux Mint 13 32bit.

I've install shantz xwinwrap from It installed ok, and when I try to add electricsheep as the desktop background with "xwinwrap -ni -fs -s -st -sp -b -nf -- /usr/lib/xscreensaver/electricsheep -window-id WID" it won't fill up the screen. My screen resolution is 1280800, but when I added "-g 1280800" to the command it didn't do anything. Here's a screenshot: As you can see, for some reason there's almost 200 hundred px on either side that it won't fill. I did the exact same thing on a Linux Mint 13 64 bit computer and it worked fine. So can anyone tell me what's going on? Thanks.

Unhappy sheep's aspect ratio

Sorry about that but the sheep's are only 4:3 you would have to make your own electricsheep server with the right aspect ratio and that means editing the source of the server and client. you might be able to do it but it would be hard to do.
