Description Jonathon Jongsma 2014-08-12 21:01:17 UTC
+++ This bug was initially created as a clone of Bug #1129477 +++

Currently, when virt-viewer / remote-viewer is started in fullscreen mode, we attempt to place a fullscreen guest dislay on each local monitor. It should be possible for the user to customize this behavior

Support is upstream.

Will be solved by rebase

Comment 4 CongDong 2015-03-11 10:38:27 UTC
Test with:

Prepare a 4 monitors machine
1. # virsh dominfo 3
Id:             3
Name:           rhel6u6-clone
UUID:           4fddea58-9dc1-a8eb-bc03-7575209789ed

2. edit config file
# cat ~/.config/virt-viewer/settings 

3. virt-viewer 3 -f

4. retest with:
 - 1:3;2:4;3:2
 - 1:2;2:4;3:1;4:3
 - 1:1;2:1(invalid)
 - 1:2;2:b(invalid)
 - 1:3;a:2(invalid)

display can be placed to the right monitor with right resolution.

Another problem, if configure virt-viewer with more than one displays, displays which are not specified in config file still come out.
So I clone a bug for it - Bug 1200750.

As the result, move to VERIFIED.
