Description Daniel U. Thibault 2010-06-07 04:16:18 UTC
Description of problem:

I have a dual display arrangement for my Fedora 12 Linux box.  The two monitors are, from left to right, a 1600x1200 one (in Portrait mode), and a 1920x1200 one (in Landscape mode).  The desktop geometry is correctly reported as 3120x1600 (3120 is 1200+1920, and the left monitor supplies the largest y displacement of 1600).  However, the work area is reported as 3120x1148 (there are two top panels and two bottom panels, one on each monitor, which is why 26 pix are removed vertically twice).

The main consequence is that no icons may be placed in the lower part of the left-hand display.  Windows are not affected.

I have absolutely no clue as to which component is responsible.

Comment 1 Bug Zapper 2010-11-03 13:30:22 UTC
This message is a reminder that Fedora 12 is nearing its end of life.
Approximately 30 (thirty) days from now Fedora will stop maintaining
and issuing updates for Fedora 12.  It is Fedora's policy to close all
bug reports from releases that are no longer maintained.  At that time
this bug will be closed as WONTFIX if it remains open with a Fedora 
'version' of '12'.

Package Maintainer: If you wish for this bug to remain open because you
plan to fix it in a currently maintained version, simply change the 'version' 
to a later Fedora version prior to Fedora 12's end of life.

Bug Reporter: Thank you for reporting this issue and we are sorry that 
we may not be able to fix it before Fedora 12 is end of life.  If you 
would still like to see this bug fixed and are able to reproduce it 
against a later version of Fedora please change the 'version' of this 
bug to the applicable version.  If you are unable to change the version, 
please add a comment here and someone will do it for you.

Although we aim to fix as many bugs as possible during every release's 
lifetime, sometimes those efforts are overtaken by events.  Often a 
more recent Fedora release includes newer upstream software that fixes 
bugs or makes them obsolete.

The process we are following is described here: 

Comment 2 Bug Zapper 2010-12-03 14:00:06 UTC
Fedora 12 changed to end-of-life (EOL) status on 2010-12-02. Fedora 12 is 
no longer maintained, which means that it will not receive any further 
security or bug fix updates. As a result we are closing this bug.

If you can reproduce this bug against a currently maintained version of 
Fedora please feel free to reopen this bug against that version.

Thank you for reporting this bug and we are sorry it could not be fixed.
