Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 1283394
Display settings changing when docking
Last modified: 2016-12-20 11:04:09 EST
Description of problem:
On FC22, gnome-shell remembered my display settings when docking and undocking. That is, it would remember which monitor was set as primary, the resolution of each monitor, and the arrangement of the monitors.
Now, the behavior when I re-dock is not consistent. Sometimes the resolution on my external monitor will change, sometimes the primary monitor will change (my external is set as Primary and my built-in as secondary), and sometimes the external will just not turn on automatically.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Undock laptop
2. Use it for a while (suspend, resume, open new windows, close old windows)
3. Re-dock laptop
After step 3. the display settings are not the same as before step 1.
After step 3. the display settings should be exactly the same as before step 1.

+1 except that it doesn't happen when docking/undocking but when my screen is dimmed (I have my power settings in Gnome Shell configured to dim the screen after some time). When I get back to it sometimes the primary monitor will change (my external is set as Primary and my built-in as secondary), and sometimes the external will just not turn on automatically.

This message is a reminder that Fedora 23 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 23. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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 23 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 23 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2016-12-20. Fedora 23 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
