Fullscreen/Maximize is not using the whole screen when pivoting the display


Description Geralt 2009-01-31 15:28:39 CET

I'm using a 22" tft (1680x1050 resolution) and when I'm pivoting the screen, either in the Display settings or with "xrandr -o left" applications won't cover the whole screen when maximizing them or switching to fullscreen. The lower third of the screen (when pivoted, that's the left third of the screen when in normal mode) is not used, I can see there the backgound, or whatever is just displayed there (another window for example).

Can you try with current svn code? A potential problem has been fixed since rc1 although I could not reproduce it in real life.

xfwm4 supports xrandr 1.2 and rotate works as expected.

However, it requires:


Can you post the output of xfwm4 --version

Beside, I observed a bug in xrandr that reports wrong screen size when rotate is used with a multi-screen setup.

Server reports RandR version 1.2

I'm upgrading GTK+ right now and then I'll try the latest svn snapshot.

Ok, I installed now the following packages:


And fullscreen/maximize is now not only working but the rendering in pivot is no alot better, before I always had the impression that the image is tiring my eyes very fast, now I have a much better image :-)

So I think this bug is fixed :-)
