RandR 1.3 additions?
|[Date Prev][Date Next][Thread Prev][Thread Next][Date Index][Thread Index]|
So, if you're monitoring the xorg-commit list, you will have seen an addition to RandR float by. I think we should consider what stuff should be in a 1.3 version of RandR at this point; we have several good suggestions: 1. DPMS events. This is what Eric added in his randr-dpms branch. This adds an event delivered when an output changes DPMS status, allowing applications to detect when the screen is blanked for any reason. 2. Per-output DPMS set/get. Right now, DPMS setting is global. Allowing applications to set DPMS levels individually for each output would provide some useful functionality. 3. Panning rectangle. RandR 1.2 drops the old built-in panning functionality as you rarely want your extended-mode monitors to all follow the mouse around the virtual desktop. If we, instead, allowed each crtc to automatically pan within a limited rectangle, we would be able to use panning again in a way consistent with RandR. The Xinerama information provided to applications would then mark the set of panning rectangles instead of the set of crtc mode rectangles. Are there other things we should consider adding to the RandR protocol at this point? -- keith.packard@xxxxxxxxx
