Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 452552
dual monitor terminal window broken
Last modified: 2015-03-03 17:32:55 EST
Description of problem:
I recently upgraded my desktop system from RHEL3 to RHEL5. The system has dual
monitors, each independent of each other (I am not using the Xinerama
extension). This problem is a regression from RHEL3 to 5.
When I bring up the gnome background menu (by clicking anywhere on the
background), I get a menu that says:
When I click on "Open Terminal...", on either screen, it appears on the first
screen ONLY. If I click on Open Terminal on the left screen, it should appear on
the left screen. But it appears on the right screen. If I click Open Terminal on
the right screen, it appears as it should on the right screen.
This functionality worked properly in RHEL3, so it is a regression in
functionality in RHEL5.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Linux fetch.pppl.gov 2.6.18-53.1.14.el5PAE #1 SMP Tue Feb 19 07:32:39 EST 2008
i686 athlon i386 GNU/Linux
Steps to Reproduce:
1. right click on the desktop background.
2. select Open Terminal in either the left or right screens.
3. the terminal window always opens on the right screen.
the terminal window always opens on the right screen.
the terminal window should open on the screen on which the desktop background
menu was opened.
