-Normal dialog: +**Hotplugging Scenarios*
-  ​Fix xfconf channel binding warning +  with an external display connected, internal ​display disabled, we want to re-enable ​the internal ​display ​when the cable gets __disconnected__ 
-  ​<​del>​Add code for "​identifying popups"</​del>​ +  * when __connecting__ an external/​additional display, we could show a notification-popup ​with an action-button to either enable ​the display directly and/or open the display-dialog 
-    ​Use xfce4-notifyd'​s gtk-style +  * when the laptop-lid gets closed (e.g. in a docking-station), we should disable the display ​(currently this doesn'​t happen reliably ​with xfce4-power-manager, maybe this functionality should reside in xfsettingsd?​)
-    Fix wrong position and values after a display ​has been disabled +
-    * <​del>​Re-color the currently selected ​display</​del>​ +
-  * Check why xrandr works better ​with Nvidia proprietary than our code +
-    * Applying new positions works every second time. Debugging output about desktop dimensions only gets printed every second time (TRACE[displays.c:​800] xfce_displays_helper_channel_apply():​ Desktop dimensions: 3200x1200 (px), 722x271 (mm).) I would assume that the problem lies there: ​the desktop dimensions don't get changed in time for the first try, so the driver falls back to mirror-mode. The second time the desktop dimensions are already changed from the last try and then applying new positions works. What supports this hypothesis is that switching from right-of to left-of seems to work fine. But e.g. from right-of to below it takes 2 tries again and vice versa (because the desktop dimensions would again have to be changed). --- //[[simon]] 2012/10/11 10:55// +
