Description Jeff Bastian 2013-10-18 14:01:11 UTC
Description of problem:
I have a laptop with a 1600x900 display on the left, and an external 1920x1080 monitor on the right.

sddm runs on the external display and it only uses the upper-left 1600x900 corner.  The area below sddm is solid white, and the area to the right is the left edge of a different wallpaper, and the laptop display is solid black.

Leaving the secondary display as solid black is fine, but sddm should use the entire primary display.  It's kind of ugly the way it works now.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:
every time

Steps to Reproduce:
1. run sddm with dual monitor setup where monitors are different resolutions

Actual results:
sddm displays in upper-left portion of the larger screen

Expected results:
sddm uses entire screen

(I don't know how to take a screenshot from sddm itself, so I used my camera.)

Thanks Jeff,
I can reproduce this with two different-sized screens. Seems more like theme issue, will fix ASAP.
