Description Christophe Demez 2017-07-13 03:56:57 EDT
Description of problem:

Dual monitor setup does not work as expected after upgrade from Fedora 25 to Fedora 26. Monitors are detected properly but overview mode in Gnome-shell gets stuck with no other way to give the focus back to an application or the desktop but to restart Gnome (Alt + F2 > R).

Both XOrg and Wayland are affected (worst on Wayland as you cannot restart Gnome).

Hardware setup:

Lenovo T-450 connected to an Eizo EV2456 (2nd monitor) through a Thinkpad-Pro-Dock (docking station) via Display-Port.

Obviously this setup worked fine prior the upgrade...

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

Gnome-shell 3.24.2

How reproducible:

Mimic the hardware setup, upgrade from F25 to F26.

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Switch to overview mode (super-key or hot corners)

Actual results:

Gnome-shell stuck in overview mode.

Expected results:

Overview mode giving back focus to the selected app or going back to the desktop upon super-key press.
Comment 1 Fedora End Of Life 2018-05-03 04:10:15 EDT
This message is a reminder that Fedora 26 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 4 (four) weeks from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 26. 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bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.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'
of '26'.

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 26 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.
