Re: [gnome-shell] twinview expanded desktop shrinks to clone while watching a video
I think I am having the same issue. I also do run gnome-shell 3.2 and suspect it's got something to do with the gnome3 xrandr plugin, but I am unsure. For me, the bug is usually triggered when skyping and not moving the mouse for 10 minutes, eventhough all screensaver and dpms functions are disabled. It also occasionally happens when watching a movie with mplayer, and never when actively working on the computer.
I run a two monitor twinview setup, main laptop screen is 1400x1050 and secondary screen is 1280x1024. Metamode when everything is working: 1 - "CRT: 1280x1024 +0+0, DFP: nvidia-auto-select +1280+0"
After the screen flicker, the setup is mangled and the output on the screens appears cloned. MetaMode: 1 - "CRT:1400x1050 @2680x1050 +0+0, DFP: nvidia-auto-select @2680x1050 +0+0".
I am attaching two bug reports, one right after the bug occured with the screwed up screens, and the second one once I rearranged the screens in nvidia-settings again to their proper order.
I'm using 295.09 and can only test this version because I was hit with the internal laptop screen is not recognized bug in the previous versions.
