Screen resolution change doesn't save
Last modified: 2009-01-17 09:02:19 EST
Description of problem:
When I Set my resolution settings in KDE - System/System Settings, I can normally change the screen resolution. The problem is, that the settings doesn't save. When I log off and log on in the KDE, the screen resolution settings change to the old values.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
[root@Hal Documents]# kde4-config -v
KDE: 4.1.3 (KDE 4.1.3)
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set screen resolution - successfuly
2. log out
3. log in - with old screen resolution
It is my understanding that your expectation that this change be persistent is incorrect.
Ways to get screen resolution to be persistent include:
1. use system-config-display
2. use krandrtray (that will (re)set on next login).
Wouldn't it be logical that changes in control panel would stay persistent ?
Is this so only in Fedora or is this default KDE "feature" ?
I vote for the logical change ... so you can change things with your settings panel ...
That's just how it works, per default upstream kde behavior.
That's why I listed alternatives known to work as you expect. :)
Thank you for your answer ;)
I have a proposition. Why don't you add a "make changes permanent" button to the display settings panel ... this is a wish-list issue ...
Feature enhancements/wishlist items should be sent to kde at bugs.kde.org.
