#444 closed defect (fixed)
Default resolution is way to big.
|Reported by:||wildintellect||Owned by:|
Not sure if it was intentional but a resolution of 2000+x? was way to big. If we want to ensure the VM is viewable to most people 1024x768 is recommended.
Not sure how this is set in the VM(by hand?), as for the DVD, we should make sure to put it in the grub entry so the default is set there. Obviously if someone has a larger screen they can bump it up, but the majority of the world runs 1024x768.

done in r2391 (image mode = 3: stretch to fit)

not quite fixed yet, r2391 only works if the attribute already exists.
Property "/backdrop/screen0/monitor0/image-style" does not exist on channel "xfce4-desktop". If a new property should be created, use the --create option.

xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -n /backdrop/screen0/monitor0/image-style xfconf-query -c xfce4-desktop -p /backdrop/screen0/monitor0/image-style -s 3
Just a guess from reading the man page. Might also need a -t to set the type, not sure what the options are though.

applied -n fix in r2433. tell you if it works in a few minutes :)
(type is int by the way, not sure if we need it though)

fix trialled (-p still needed after -n; -t int works) and repaired in r2441.

As I understand it, the vmware tools on the alpha 5 image expand the image to the size of the users display. In building the LiveDVD version I'm not planning to install vmware tools, so the display will be 600x800 (I think).
I agree that we should set the display to 1024x768. Could someone please work out how to do this automatically, and then put in an install_desktop.sh script.
