Description Levin Fritz 2005-12-19 11:51:24 EST
Description of problem:
I have an HP L1740 LCD, but system-config-display's list of monitors doesn't
contain that model. I set it to Generic LCD Display/LCD Panel 1280x1024, which
works fine, but it would be nicer if there was an entry for the exact model.

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

Additional info:
More info from the manufacturer:
My monitor actually says "HP 1740" (without L) on the front, but the manual says
"HP L1740", so that must be the same.

These bugs are being closed since a large number of updates have been released
after the FC5 test1 and test2 releases. Kindly update your system by running yum
update as root user or try out the third and final test version of FC5 being
released in a short while and verify if the bugs are still present on the system
.Reopen or file new bug reports as appropriate after confirming the presence of
this issue. Thanks

Does this work any better in xorg-x11-server 1.1.1-24 or later?
Comment 3 Adam Jackson 2006-10-30 19:15:02 EST
Reporter, ping.
Comment 4 Levin Fritz 2006-11-03 06:25:39 EST
Hm, I switched to Ubuntu in the meantime, so I can't test this with Fedora
anymore. Sorry.
Comment 5 Adam Jackson 2006-12-01 15:31:25 EST
Marking as WONTFIX.  The solution in progress for new panels is to prefer the
generic panel entries, which should actually produce better results than
selecting exact models due to the lack of information in MonitorsDB.

Thanks for the report!
