Description Andrew Healey 2007-11-10 02:16:21 EST
Description of problem:
If "desktop effects" are enabled while laptop is in docking station and using
external screen, maximizing any window does not fill desktop.  Instead, window's
size matches laptop screen size, not external monitor size.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Fedora 8

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Dock laptop with external 19" monitor (Dell 1900FP).
2. Enable Desktop Effects
3. Maximize any window.
Actual results:
Maximized windows are sized as if screen is 15.1 laptop screen.

Expected results:
Maximized windows would be sized to fit external 19" LCD screen (Dell 1900FP)

Additional info:
When laptop is not docked and desktop effects are enabled, the windows maximize
as expected.  This is only a problem when the laptop is docked.  This is a Dell
Latitude D610 with onboard Intel 915MP video in a D/Port Advanced Port Replicator.

same problem here, seems related to the RandR extension.

If I display the status using the xrandr utility, I get this listing:

Just one monitor here, using the VGA-0 output at 1280x1024. When using compiz,
windows are maximized at the 1152x864 resolution, and also mplayer in full
screen mode plays videos using this resolution. mplayer does the same also when
I'm not using compiz, so I think that this bug should be filed to something
related to RandR.

If I disable the DVI-O output (xrandr --output DVI-0 --off) all works perfectly
(compiz AND mplayer).

Comment 2 Marc 2007-12-07 07:29:05 EST

I also have the same problem with only one monitor. I have a normal resolution
of 1280x1024 through VGA, but when I enable desktop effects, windows are
maximized to 1152x864.

I found a workaround that is to reduce the resolution to 1024x768 and then
restore it to the original 1280x1024. This is effective while in the same
session (in other words, if I logout and then login again, the effect of the
workaround is lost and I have to do it again), but I can enable and disable
compiz as much as I want while in the same session without losing the effect.

Same problem with one 19 inch monitor at 1440x900. Windows are scaled to about
3/4 size.

Thanks for the bug report.  We have reviewed the information you have provided
above, and there is some additional information we require that will be helpful
in our diagnosis of this issue.

Please attach your X server config file (/etc/X11/xorg.conf) and X server log
file (/var/log/Xorg.*.log) to the bug report as individual uncompressed file
attachments using the bugzilla file attachment link below.

Could you please also try to run without any /etc/X11/xorg.conf whatsoever and
let X11 autodetect your display and video card? Attach to this bug
/var/log/Xorg.0.log from this attempt as well, please.

We will review this issue again once you've had a chance to attach this information.

Thanks in advance.
