GNOME Bugzilla – Bug 156800
problems after resizing screen / desktop resolution
Last modified: 2010-08-10 05:41:11 UTC
In Gnome 2.6.x, after using gnome-display-properties to change the screen (and
desktop) resolution, sawfish does not recognize the change in display size.
After doing this (and closing gnome-display-properties) and attempting to
maximize a window, the window maximizes to the previous desktop resolution size
rather than the new size.
Restarting sawfish seems to be the only way to tell it to recognize the new
I can't reproduce the problem with `maximize-window', but with edge-flip.
I think it's the same topic:
Windows maximize to the wrong height in dual-monitor configuration.
E.g. if I have:
> $ xrandr
> Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 2720 x 900, maximum 4096 x 4096
> VGA connected 1440x900+1280+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 410mm x 257mm
> LVDS connected 1280x800+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 261mm x 163mm
then maximizing on the LVDS (height 800) makes window height under the edge of the screen.
I wouldn't say it's the same, as it's a multihead issue and not appears after resolution-change, please be so kind and open a new bug report for your issue.
Moving -> 3.0
This was fixed by DMG in v1.6.0 for edge-flipping the fix will be in 1.7.0.
Multihead-issue see #598725.
