Not sure I understand what is this for, Sugar should be already adapting to all screen resolutions, within reasonable limits. How do you envision this new control panel section?

comment:2 Changed 11 years ago by RafaelOrtiz

A use case for this is for example using some kinds of flat panels, one have to change the resolution with the screen buttons, if we have this on CP..people couldn't blame sugar :).

this was saw on working on a pilot here in Colombia, but i agree that this is not entirely related to sugar could be an advantage to have it however.

Can you describe the controls that would be added to the CP?

having the risk of being heretic, i was thinking having something like the screen resolution control of win.
when you enter the control panel you can select between various kinds of resolutions.

Attached is an image of what Gnome offers... But to be honest, there are dozens of control panels that we could potentially be asked to provide that have nothing to do with Sugar.

Is there some way we can hijack Gnome's control panel system to open inside Sugar?

  • Resolution set to wontfix
  • Status changed from new to closed

Not high priority enough to be tracked. Patches might be welcome but it should be discussed first. It could be an extension anyway.
