Description of problem:
When selecting a resolution, I always require that I get minimum 75Hz
refresh rate. system-config-display does not show what the refresh
rate would be for a particular resolution. Therefore I have to select
a resolution, quit system-config-display, restart X and see. This is
not very user friendly.
I suggest that with each resolution selected, the effective refresh
rate would show up. This would avoid users going trough this trial
and error method to get the best resolution with an acceptable refresh
xrandr command line shows the resolutions. The xrandr extensions make
it possible for 3rd party tools to fetch the info. Hopefully
system-config-display could use this feature to fetch the information,
making the implementation easier.
