Description of problem:
When reducing the resolution from 1920*1440 to 1600*1200, then going back in to
Display Settings to increase the resolution back again I found that the option
for 1920*1440 had been lost.
Attempting to reduce the resolutoin even further provided no help, however the
option up to 1600*1200 was still present.
The only solution was to manualy alter the XFree86 config file manualy.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Set monitor resolution to 1920*1440 and restart X
2. Open Monitor Settings, change resolution down to 1600*1200, restart X
3. Go in to Monitor Settings, View options for resolution. 1920*1440 no longer
Actual Results: The option to set the resolution back to 1920*1440 appears to
Expected Results: The option to set the resolutoin back to 1920*1440 should
still be present
At the moment 1600x1200 is the max resolution in the list, but it also adds the
current resolution if it's not in the list. Is 1920x1440 a common ("standard")
I am not sure what you consider a standard resolution to be. Whether you are
refering to preset values (My monitor comes with a preset width/hight and all
that gubbins for that res at 75Hz), or whether you mean the number of people
If it is the latter, then I do know I am not the only person to use this res.
With 21" and above monitors resolutions of 1920*1440 are far from unreasonable.
It's in now in rawhide.
