Description Mike Jang 2005-07-15 19:04:27 UTC
From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.5) Gecko/20041107 Firefox/1.0

Description of problem:
Same issue as https://bugzilla.redhat.com/bugzilla/show_bug.cgi?id=100532

I notice that gnome-display-properties on other distros (SUSE, Debian) save changes to each individual's home directory, ~/.gconf/%gconf-tree.xml.

Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
control-center-2.8.0-12

How reproducible:
Always

Steps to Reproduce:
1.Log into GNOME
2.Run gnome-display-properties
3.Change Resolution
4.Click Apply
5.Log out of GNOME
6.Log back into GNOME
  

Actual Results:  The resolution was changed temporarily, as I wanted to do with gnome-display-properties. However, the next time I log into GNOME, the resolution goes back to the previous settings.
 (changes do work with system-config-properties)

Expected Results:  Resolution should have been changed for the next login.
