Description Geyang Kong 2012-11-11 21:21:52 EST
Description of problem: Add introduction in man page of remote-viewer about connecting to rhel guest with multiple monitors. Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable): virt-viewer-0.5.2-16.el6.x86_64 Reproduce steps: 1. man remote-viewer Actual results: 1. There is nothing about new functions of --full-screen=auto-conf. Expected results: 1. Since bug 842305 has given some new functions to --full-screen=auto-conf, we should add something to introduce this and tell user how to connect to a rhel guest with multiple monitors.

Comment 9 Marc-Andre Lureau 2013-05-09 21:09:08 EDT
is attached patch ok?
Comment 10 Christophe Fergeau 2013-05-13 08:05:30 EDT
s/initilialization/initialization The " enabling or disabling extra monitors when necessary" could be clearer I think, I don't really understand what this is about by just reading it.
Comment 11 Marc-Andre Lureau 2013-05-13 08:29:03 EDT
So what about just: If given the argument 'auto-conf', the remote server will be reconfigured to try to match the client physical monitor configuration when starting the connection. This is currently implemented by the Spice backend only.
Comment 12 Christophe Fergeau 2013-05-13 10:02:27 EDT
Maybe " If given..., the guest display configuration will be changed to try to match ..." ?
Comment 13 Christophe Fergeau 2013-05-24 10:39:56 EDT
Marc-André, can you send a patch to virt-tools-list so that we get this in?

Comment 17 CongDong 2013-07-03 07:52:25 EDT
I can reproduce this bug: version: # rpm -qa virt-viewer virt-viewer-0.5.2-18.el6_4.2.x86_64 steps: # man remote-viewer result: ... -f, --full-screen Start with the window maximised to fullscreen ... Verify: version: # rpm -qa virt-viewer virt-viewer-0.5.6-1.el6.x86_64 Steps: # man remote-viewer result: ... -f, --full-screen=<auto-conf> Start with the windows maximized to fullscreen. If the argument ’auto-conf’ is given, the remote display will be reconfigured to match at best the client physical monitor configuration on initialization, by enabling or disabling extra monitors as necessary. This is currently implemented by the Spice backend only. ... As the result, the bug is fixed.
