Title: have an option to apply the gnome "monitor preferences" to xorg.

- openSUSE-11.4: Unconfirmed
+ openSUSE-11.4: Done
Requester: Important

Requested by: Thiago Sayao (sayao)

There's a problem with gnome monitor prefereces: the preferences if for
the user and the user is only known after the login, but X starts and
shows GDM before the login. So there is an extra flicker (in my case it
flickers twice for some reason) when changing from the gdm monitor
settings to the gnome desktop monitor settings.
This option would allow to convert the xrandr settings to a xorg.conf
file (asking for the root password) with the monitor settings (monitor
positions, resolution and the default monitor).
In the UI it would be represented by an option or an "apply to system"

+ There's a "Set as default" button in gnome-display-properties in GNOME
+ 2.31/2.32. And gdm will be able to use the resolution defined this
+ way.
