Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 600276
resolutions stay in proportional when returning from mirrored mode
Last modified: 2010-07-14 10:54:45 EDT
Description of problem:
I have laptop and external screens.. using both.. when I go into mirror mode the resolutions of both are altered to be the same on both screens. If I uncheck mirror screens in display preferences the resolutions are not changed back to native ones. As most of current users are using LCDs it's quite annoying to change it by hand.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1.connect two different resolution screens
2.go into mirror mode
no native resolution
screens go to native resolution

are you still seeing this with gnome-desktop-2.28.2-7.el6 ? I suspect this may be a duplicate of bug 582564
I've tried the bug 582564 but this is something different.
1. obtain box with two outputs and two different sized screens
2. connect them in side to side manner (not mirror)
3. open s-c-display and click "mirror screens"
4. click apply and keep settings
5. uncheck "mirror screens" and approve the change
those monitors should go back to their native resolutions (or the resolution they had before -- native is better I think) and not the proportional ones.
unfortunately, this isn't going to make the cut for GA. devnack.
Development Management has reviewed and declined this request. You may appeal
this decision by reopening this request.
