Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1032471
Disconnecting external display leaves the primary display disabled
Last modified: 2015-06-29 20:44:38 EDT
Description of problem:
When I use an external display with the laptop, I disable LVDS and use external screen only. This is achieved by unselecting 'use this output' in display configuration for LVDS. Only a single screen is in use at any given time. Disconnecting external display does not cause LVDS to get automatically enabled, and I'm left without any display and I can't really change the display settings at this point.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. connect external display
2. in display settings, disable LVDS, make sure that external display is enabled
3. disconnect external display
LVDS remains disabled, can't use desktop as no displays are enabled
LVDS as the only avaialble screen gets automatically enabled
Yeah, I think this is known upstream, but I can't seem to find the bug on it. ;(
Would you be willing to file a new one? (bugzilla.xfce.org)
In the mean time do you have a fn-f7 or similar key that you can hit to reactivate it?
Or can you map a xrandr call to a key?
Me too, but on GNOME. See also #1052248
This message is a reminder that Fedora 20 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 20. It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained. At that time
this bug will be closed as EOL if it remains open with a Fedora 'version'
Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version'
to a later Fedora version.
Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that we were not
able to fix it before Fedora 20 is end of life. If you would still like
to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it against a later version
of Fedora, you are encouraged change the 'version' to a later Fedora
version prior this bug is closed as described in the policy above.
Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events. Often a
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes
bugs or makes them obsolete.
Fedora 20 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2015-06-23. Fedora 20 is
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.
If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version. If you
are unable to reopen this bug, please file a new report against the
current release. If you experience problems, please add a comment to this
Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
