Sreen Resolution Preferences - does not remember refresh rate default
Last modified: 2007-11-30 17:10:34 EST
Description of problem:
Selecting default refresh rate doesn't seem to stick from session to
session, regardless of reboot/log-on as user or as root.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedore Core 1
I only see this on my Dell C840 Laptop (UltraSharp 1600x1200 LCD) . My
other machine - Slimline ( AOpen MX46L with Dell 20 inch LCD in
1600x1200 Analog ) remembers default refresh rate choice.
Steps to Reproduce:
1.I get this problem wen I reboot, or logoff and log back on as User
This is not a big deal, And I can't reproduce on my other Fedora
system, its just a minor complaint. I'm thinking that because the
screen looks fine, it may be actually working okay - just not showing
prior choices and showing default box as checked.
If you select a refresh rate, and apply, then close, and then come
back into preferences and make the selection default. It will stick.
If you try to change refresh rate and make default at same time it
sometimes doesn't seem to stick. Perhaps its really working as it
should. This way, some one doesn't make a bad choice and set it as
I recommend closing this Item.
FYI - 'screen' is also a program which is different from the display
configuration tool. See 'man screen'. :)
