glitches in display of rotation information in gnome-display-properties
Last modified: 2009-05-18 19:45:06 EDT
Description of problem:
gnome-display-properties does not always display the rotatability information correctly
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
version in F11 rawhide as of 24 April 2009
always, at lest on a Thinkpad T60p
Steps to Reproduce:
1. use gnome-display-properties to rotate LCD screen
2. accept rotated setup
The Rotation menu has no options.
The gnome-display-properties icon dropdown says no rotation possible.
It should be possible to use the Rotation menu or the dropdown to rotate back.
Closing and opening fixes the Rotation menu but not the dropdown. Doing a null rotation fixes the dropdown.
Note that this is on a system with no xorg.conf, etc., i.e., a stock F11 beta install (updated to 24 April 2009). The display driver is the radeon driver.
Noted upstream here: http://bugzilla.gnome.org/show_bug.cgi?id=578111
Fixed in gnome-desktop-2.26.1-2.fc11
Is this a duplicate of https://bugzilla.redhat.com/show_bug.cgi?id=494633 as well or is that a different problem?
Different, I think, as 494633 appears to be a persistent and reports two positions. In this bug the rotation options are temporarily missing (and thus incorrect, but only temporarily).
PS: When is gnome-desktop-2.26.1-2.fc11 expect to hit rawhide?
Ah ha! It just did hit, and seems to have fixed the problem.
As far as I am concerned, this bug can be closed. (Can I do that?)
I've put it in MODIFIED, until the package is tagged
This has been working great in rawhide for a while, so I'm closing my report.
