Description Bill Sanford 2012-07-18 10:10:41 EDT
Description of problem:
When trying to have a remote-viewer go to full-screen, RHEL 7 spice-vdagent does not enter full-screen with monitor resolution, but maximizes the current resolution that is configured.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):

How reproducible:

Steps to Reproduce:
1. Run remote-viewer and enter full-screen.
Actual results:
The remote-viewer only maximizes the "Full-screen" to the monitor's currently configured resolution.

Expected results:
The remote-viewer should maximize the "Full-screen" to the monitor's maximum resolution.

Additional info:

Both vdagents are running on the guest and host.

Bill, just to make sure I understand this correctly. The issue is that you've a monitor on the client side running at say 1600x900, but it is capable of doing 1920x1080, and you expect remote-viewer to change the client monitor resolution to 1920x1080 when going fullscreen ?

Yes Hans.
Comment 5 Marc-Andre Lureau 2014-02-23 19:46:11 EST
Changing the client resolution is wrong in many ways (unsafe, deletes user preference/configuration, breaks desktop layout window/icons, no safety/restore mechanism).

spicec used to do that, spicy used to have experimental code to do that, but virt-viewer will not. If you want higher resolutions, you need to configure your client monitor first.
