User-Agent: Mozilla/4.0 (compatible; MSIE 6.0; Windows NT 5.0)

Description of problem:
add a simple gui tool to center the screen of xfree in the monitor. windows and 
suse 8 have this feature: a window with four arrows to move the screen around. 
sometimes is useful, especially if you have to multiboot (when i install nvidia 
proprietary drivers, the screen appears shifted horizontally a little, and i 
have to manually adjust with the monitor commands, the when i boot windows the 
screen is shifter horizontally in the opposite direction...)

see bug #72803. IOt's the xvidtune/Modeline configuration that
needs to be added to redhat-config-free86.
Comment 2 Brent Fox 2004-02-02 14:46:40 EST
Closing.  I just don't see this feature as being worth the investment.
 I want to keep the UI as simple as possible and this adds more
Comment 3 Thomas Dodd 2004-02-02 15:04:56 EST
Amazing how most Windows drivers support this without too much complexity.

Even xvidtune had a simple UI for the adjustments. Using the restults
might not have been easy, but the UI was. I can try to get you a
screen grab from a windows driver if need an example.

I don't know enough about the programming side to do it, or I would.

Currently people have to use the monitor controls to do this, which
are often very complex. I have one that uses 4 seperate menus, H and V
size are seperate and H and V position are also seperate. Newer
monitors have fewer bottons, so you don't have enought for simple
controls. Why? Because the video drivers support the functions. The
monitors don't need a simple interface now.
