Description Gerry Tool 2003-08-03 23:38:31 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper: User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4) Gecko/20030703 Epiphany/0.8.0 Description of problem: In RHL9 the System Settings > Display dialog has an Advanced tab with a DPI section and a Set DPI button that opens a sub-dialog that allows manual setting of the Monitor width and height in whatever units one specifies. There is no such facility in the Display applet in severn. It seems a regression to remove this facility from the new version of RHL. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): How reproducible: Always Steps to Reproduce: 1. Open the menu item System Settings > Display 2. Look for Advanced Tab with manual DPI settings 3. Actual Results: No Advanced tab for manually setting DPI (independent setting of monitor width and height) is available Expected Results: Advanced tab for manually setting DPI (independent setting of monitor width and height) should be available. This is present in RHL9 and is useful. Additional info: This is very useful for matching the dimensions of a frame in a word processor with the dimensions of a picture inserted from a file that has the size determined by a program such as Gimp.
Comment 1 Brent Fox 2003-10-16 00:35:08 UTC
I removed a lot of the "Advanced" widgets to simplify the program and make it easier to use. Some programs such as the Gimp have their own controls for setting dpi. Alternatively, the users that need this functionality can modify the /etc/X11/XF86Config file by hand.
