On some systems (like as a VirtualBox guest), the display-settings
dialog needs better, discerning identifiers for displays. It is
much easier to find a display when it is numbered than when all
displays share the same friendly name because they are all from
the same vendor.
This fix prefixes the 'output' number to the friendly-but-not-unique
names. It should apply to 3 main UI elements:
- List of displays
- Dropdown for selecting display position
- Display identification "floater" boxes (when "Identify Displays"
button is pressed).
One more thing... this xfce4-settings project cannot fully run "make" at this point in its commit history (commit #7dbe179 / 2014-06-17). I was able to get "xfce4-display-settings" compiled, and that was my good enough for me.
Here is a hint about what failed during "make":
Making all in xfsettingsd
make: Entering directory `/home/victor/projects/xfce4-settings/xfsettingsd'
debug.c: In function ‘xfsettings_dbg_print’:
debug.c:94:5: error: function might be possible candidate for ‘gnu_printf’ format attribute [-Werror=suggest-attribute=format]
string = g_strdup_vprintf (message, args);

I've fixed the xfce4-settings failure to build here:
This reported bug is fixed here:
Merged into trunk here:
Consequently marking this bug as fixed.
