Common issues not caused by the driver
- Font sizes (DPI) are wrong. Some displays incorrectly report their
physical size, which is harmless on most OSes that always assume 96dpi
displays. This can be fixed through quirks for specific monitors in the X
Server, and the output of xrandr --prop along with a physical measurement of
the screen size in a bug report against the server can help get that fixed.
- gnome-panel is located in the middle of the screen. gnome-panel places
itself within head #0's boundaries, which doesn't work well with a second
head covering the same area as head #0 but larger.
- Older resolution-changing applications have poor results in
multihead systems. Previous extensions such as RandR 1.1 exposed only a
single output to client programs, and those requests map poorly to multi-head
systems. Currently, those requests map to just one of the outputs in the
RandR 1.2 environment, and those applications need to be updated to RandR 1.2
API when available for better results.
