Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 175349
default resolution should match LCD resolution
Last modified: 2018-04-11 11:04:15 EDT
Description of problem:
When selecting a "Generic LCD Display" monitor at a certain resolution
it would a lot of sense if the display resolution was also changed automatically
to this resolution. I don't think people want to run the X at a different
resolution by default on an LCD panel normally.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. run system-config-display
2. select (generic LCD panel)
3. look at current screen resolution setting
3. unchanged and different from selected LCD resolution
3. same as selected LCD resolution
it is annoying to have to specify the resolution again when the monitor
setting already implies the information.
This is entirely too general of a comment to count as a bug.
We have many particular instances of certain panels failing to work with certain
drivers. Fixing that in the general case is upstream work that we're also
If you're experiencing problems with a particular monitor, please file a bug
listing the monitor in use, and attach the Xorg startup log from a failed startup.
Sorry, but this is nothing driver specific, of course I'd be happy if
every panel I ever use is autodetected and configured for me.
LCD panels are very common now and it is just seems common sense and the
Right Thing that if I configure by hand "Generic LCD Panel X x Y"
that the X config file defaults to X x Y resolution and not something else.
So this is purely a system-config-display issue and not something
for xorg-x11 upstream afaics.
