So, setting the flags to read only does
prevent the boot process from "fixing" xorg.conf
- I thought I could set up the test before logging in.)
Unfortunately, the the boot process still insists
on ignoring by setting, and uses the "correct" settings from my old monitor that I was using when I installed Gutsy.
And, as I said before, the xrandr
tools don't (automatically) change the size and position of the tool bars.
So, back to struggling with the Python
code in /usr/share/python-support/guidance-backends/
to see if I can figure out how they should be changed so, for example, they use the first mode listed in the xorg.conf
file even if that's not a mode that the program "computes" to be valid
. Perhaps only if xorg.conf
is marked as read only
as an "indication" that the backend's assistance, while usually welcome, it's not needed for the display settings.
This will, I fear, take some time since I have other current commitments. (Like keeping the afore mentioned wife relatively happy, and visiting our daughter and new granddaughter.
