Rotating external display crashes displays applet, can't rotate it back
Last modified: 2009-09-09 20:28:20 EDT
Description of problem:
While helping out with the "Fit and Finish" test day, I plugged in an external monitor, pulled up Evince on that monitor, and used the displays applet to rotate that screen (set it to "Left" instead of "Normal"). That worked, but caused the displays applet to crash.
Now if I use gnome-display-properties to try to rotate the LCD back to its normal position, I get the following error:
Could not apply the selected configuration"
Method "ApplyConfiguration" with signature "" on interface "org.gnome.SettingsDaemon.XRANDR" doesn't exist
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Tried it twice, happened both times.
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Explained above
Can't rotate screen back
Ability to rotate the screen back
Using a MacBookPro (MacBookPro3,1) Santa Rosa with an external Acer X221W LCD connected via DVI. Output of xrandr is:
[jsmith@hockey ~]$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 2340 x 1440, maximum 8176 x 8192
DVI-I-0 connected 900x1440+1440+0 left (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 474mm x 296mm
1680x1050 60.0 + 59.9

640x480 85.0 72.8 75.0 59.9
By running "xrandr --output DVI-I-0 --rotate normal", I was able to rotate the screen back to it's normal orientation.
Are you still seeing this ? I have used the display capplet for some extensive rotation testing lately, and not seen any crashes.
I've tried, but couldn't make the capplet crash, so I consider this fixed.
Please reopen if you still see this crash.
