If you did monitor detection and it didn't work with your new monitor
we should look into where the problems are and fix them.
Please either report this in bugzilla or diskuss it on the opensuse-xorg@

Quick question then to make things clearer, please.

Does this mean something is saved between boots so Monitor can be
switched off on boot & X start up? (unlike old Windows where it
would fall back to LCD (lowest common denominator *g*) display)

Monitors can be switched off on boot or even when you start up X as
even switched off monitors should supply DDC data as the DDC circuit
receives its power from the graphics board.

The desktop tool should save your favorite configuration and try to
restore it if possible but no monitor data should be saved.


How are we meant to trigger a rescan if it's not done automatically
when X is started?

A restart will of course retrigger a rescan. A rescan doesn't happen
automatically when X is running.

Cheers,
Egbert.
