Description of problem:
- As things currently stand, mutter and/or ~/.config/monitors.xml overrides xorg/xorg.conf, and cannot use a generic configuration. It flatly requires that the configuration be defined using display serial numbers (in current versions, including in Fedora 28). This creates a major problem for mass deployment where it is not feasible to know display serial numbers. Additionally, the configuration used to be read from /etc/gnome-settings-daemon/monitors.xml but that seems to have been dropped. This change would need to be reverted in addition to a method to allow "generic" non-serialized display configurations for the purpose of mass-deployment/automation/homogenization
How would the customer like to achieve this? (List the functional requirements here)
- A generic display configuration can be passed via kickstart post-install script/ansible/some other deployment automation solution that sets the default display configuration
Is there already an existing RFE upstream or in Red Hat Bugzilla?
Does the customer have any specific timeline dependencies and which release would they like to target (i.e. RHEL5, RHEL6)?
- As soon as possible
Is the sales team involved in this request and do they have any additional input?
List any affected packages or components.
Would the customer be able to assist in testing this functionality if implemented?
