Hi,

I followed https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xorg#Display_size_and_DPI .
I measured the screen size of the LCD and the CRT manually and in
addition I calculated the screen size of the LCD. FWIW manual measuring
provided the same result as the calculation.

This is my xorg.conf

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ cat /etc/X11/xorg.conf
Section "Monitor"
    Identifier  "HDMI2"
    DisplaySize  526 296
    Option      "PreferredMode" "1920x1080"
    Option      "Primary" "true"
EndSection

Section "Monitor"
    Identifier   "VGA1"
    DisplaySize  367 278
    Modeline    "1024x768" 65.00 1024 1048 1184 1344 768 771 777 806
    Option       "PreferredMode" "1024x768"
    Option       "RightOf" "HDMI2"
EndSection

Section "Device"
        Identifier  "Card0"
        Driver      "intel"
        #Driver     "vesa"
EndSection

Section "ServerFlags"
    Option "BlankTime" "0"
    Option "StandbyTime" "0"
    Option "SuspendTime" "0"
    Option "OffTime" "0"
EndSection

For my session I added a few modes using xrandr:

[rocketmouse@archlinux ~]$ xrandr

Is this a bug or do I misunderstand something?
