Description Aaron VanDevender 2004-01-05 20:06:51 EST
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.4.1)

Description of problem:
I have two minotors going. The primary runs at 1600x1200, and the
secondary runs at 1024x768. The secondary is to the left of the
primary. When RHGB runs, it creates a grey field that is 1600x1200 and
displays it with its leftmost edge aligned with the left edge of the
left (secondary) monitor. This monitor is, of course, insufficiently
large to accomitate the 1600x1200 rectangle, and so the remainder of
the rectangle shows up on the right (primary) monitor. The balence of
the primary monitor is black. The status slider dialog shows up
centered on the grey field, which happens to land it about 2/3 to the
right on the secondary monitor.

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

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Plug in two monitors and put monitor 0 on the rightof monitor 1
2. boot using rhgb

Expected Results:  The correct thing to do would be to grey rectangle
which spans both of the monitors, and then open up the status slider
dialog centered on the primary monitor.

I can confirm and reproduce this bug.

Created attachment 101801 [details]

Instead of making the splash window a Desktop window (which requires quite a
lot of code to handle properly with displays of different sizes, etc.), make
the window keep on top, and move it to the right display if required.

This patch also fixes bug #115209 which I encountered, and fixes a compile

Comment 4 Daniel Veillard 2004-07-12 05:13:16 EDT
Applied patch and released rhgb-0.12-1 , this should hit rawhide 
as soon as an export of the build system is done,
