I also agree that the default resolution at the login screen is ugly. Low resolution mirroring is bad. Windows 7 is using only the external screen at its highest resolution at the login screen.
Also the guest session in Ubuntu uses the same ugly low resolution mirroring by default so the whole experience is ugly for my guests unless I change the resolution manually for them each and every time. ** Also affects: gdm-guest-session (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Status: New ** Also affects: gnome-settings-daemon (Ubuntu) Importance: Undecided Status: New -- You received this bug notification because you are a member of Ubuntu Desktop Bugs, which is subscribed to gnome-settings-daemon in Ubuntu. https://bugs.launchpad.net/bugs/874241 Title: Wrong resolutions in lightdm login screen when using external monitor connected to laptop To manage notifications about this bug go to: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/gdm-guest-session/+bug/874241/+subscriptions -- desktop-bugs mailing list firstname.lastname@example.org https://lists.ubuntu.com/mailman/listinfo/desktop-bugs
