How much longer until Linux DEs can have proper display setups on dual monitors? Windows has been able to do this since XP over 20 years ago.

    You should be asking "when linux desktop will be actually stable and not break everything every 2 fricking years?"
    Kernel devs do their job to not break the userspace to then the userspace devs (graphics systems, sound systems, windows, widgets, etc) keep shoting themselves in the foot every fricking time.

    FRICK, I FRICKING HATE REDHAT!

      Linus needed to standardise the GUI like he did the kernel. Just accelerated framebuffer and system services. No X11/Wayland.

    Linux desktop sucks. It's a server OS. Don't know why you gays even bother.

      Because the supposed desktop OS sucks

      not even, it's a reimplementation of an OS meant for time sharing mainframes. Xorg reflects this because it's a client/server model for displaying video on a terminal connected to a mainframe that's been hacked into a display system for desktops.

          yeah it works. so the only thing that lacks independent scaling is ops shitting gnome desktop. you dont want seperate dpi anyway because no application re-renders for the monitor its on when you drag it from one screen to another, thats the same on every OS.

    x11 would have this problem fixed with an extension, same thing with every other problem Wayland is supposed to solve. the issue with xorg is that nobody does this because Wayland is supposed to fix everything. we'd have HDR, VRR (both Nvidia and AMD) and actual separate monitors instead of Xorg's weird multi-monitor solution if people would just DEVELOP EXTENSIONS FOR IT. The only issue with X is that it's a display solution for terminals to display video from a mainframe hacked to work on a local display on a desktop.

      >displaying video on a terminal connected to a mainframe that's been hacked into a display system for desktops
      And yet it has better input latency than the supposed dedicated desktop display server, Wayland truly is pathetic

    Completly false, Windows 8 seems to be when the concept of per monitor DPI was added to the operating system.

    Do yourself a favour and stop using multiple monitors. X knows what's best for you.

    how the frick does "can't handle different DPI scaling" translate to "can't use different resolution monitors" ?
    I have a 1080p 27" and a 4k 32" next to each other and use both on the same X11 machine without a single issue. I just have to use them with the same scaling factor

      So either one looks way too big or the other looks way too small. Brilliant solution.

        I use both at 1x scaling so the 4k looks small yeah
        doesn't bother me at all since all I do on it is watch videos and play vidya, so I don't need scaling

        (me)
        I'll just add that I didn't scale up the 4k when I was still on W10 either. scaling is moronic

    ...I'm trying to figure this one because I'm just doing that without any issues and I literally don't remember having any problems with it ever. Even scaling worked just fine for me always, albeit currently my second monitor is old CRT TV that I mainly using for watching anime and playing vidya games so there's like no need for me to frick around with scaling - small text is unreadable anyway but that's not what I'm using it for so lol.

    every display shall be 96dpi.
    if display is physically larger it shall present itself as 96dpi and do the scaling with firmware

        Good luck getting rid of the telemetry. No, setting a couple switches in the registry won't do.
