Title: Equivalent of nvidia-settings for Nouveau
- openSUSE Distribution: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE Distribution: Rejected by Karl Cheng (qantas94heavy)
+ reject reason: This does not need a separate tool just for Nouveau.
Requested by: Audard Guillaume (agui)
Partner organization: openSUSE.org
The open source driver for Nvidia GPU, Nouveau, is more and more
performant. It is already fully usable instead of the proprietary
driver. However, there is no GUI to configure display. SaX2 module is
not available anymore in YaST in openSUSE 11.4, and there is no way to
make modifications such as defining the dpi.
Developping an equivalent of nvidia-settings for Nouveau would push
even more users to switch to open source drivers.

What about KDE's display setting module? I would assume Gnome has
something similar? Or randr?

Exactly, I thought that the KDE "Display and Monitor" tool was supposed
to configure graphics on machines which use Nouveau, I used it on mine
and it's fine.
The last thing we need is more distribution- or driver-specific config
tools. If the KDE "Display and Monitor" tool (or it's GNOME equivalent)
is not up to the task then the feature request should be to improve
those, not start from scratch.
