Summary: xquery: query relative screen positions Product: openSUSE 10.2 Version: Final Platform: i686 OS/Version: openSUSE 10.2 Status: NEW Severity: Enhancement Priority: P5 - None Component: X11 Applications AssignedTo: email@example.com ReportedBy: firstname.lastname@example.org QAContact: email@example.com Found By: Community of Practice
At the moment it is possible to query for the resolution of each screen:
0 1600x1200 1 1280x800 as well as for midpoints(-M: popup msgg) the screen the mouse is currently over(-S: window placing) as well as the number of screens(-s).
However that kind of information(-r,-M,-S) will only make real sense in conjunction with the overall compositing information of screens that use to be described as follows: 0 1600x1200+0+0 1 1280x800+1600+200 which means #0 left of #1; #1 200 pixels from top of composite-screen-edge. i.e. for win replacement/popup msgg/win-manager scripts.
In that way a switch to query for the screen arrangement and poss. sth. to retrieve x;y mouse cursor coordinata instead of just the screen(-S) will be very useful.
To be seen in conjunction with the following KDE-updstream bugs: KDE-Bug 161305, KDE-Bug 161307. Xquery and the respecitve desktop(kde/gnome) are at least in eed of an appropriate mechanism to query for the rel screen frame positions of a composite screen (Xorg-libs) and moreover of a notification mechanism for this.
