I didn't think of those... I ran E in a bare-bones X session and
captured the output and errors (attached). There are a lot of RRR
lines i hope someone can make sense of. At a first glance i can see
where the lid closure and open events are detected, but in the end it
settles back on the 1600x900 resolution.

As a test, i had a unity session on another screen during the
suspend/wake cycle and that didn't have resizing problems (though
horrible redrawing errors). And i've certainly never had this problem
with E 0.20.

never seen that. sounds like randr has reconfigured the screen to 10x10 or
whatever. e does have logs. look for RRR: in stdout/err logs from e. but at
least on my laptop (intel gfx) it stays happy. different drivers do different
things - on some you get screen unplug events from the randr subsystem inside x
when you close the lid. on others you don't. if no screens are left (everything
unplugged) e just uses root window size as screen until at least 1 screen is
back... but randr is a hell hole of pain due to inconsistent behaviour, some
drivers not producing any events on plug/unplug, randr itself often refusing to
update the client-side cache without jumping through polling hoops that force
the server to paus for like 0.1 sec as it re-probes all outputs (causing
horrible framerate stutters)... then even more fun that any x app/client can
mess with randr. there isnt a single controller.

[e-users] Weird problem on waking after suspend

2016-05-04 Thread Conrad Knight
Just ran into a problem i've never seen before... E0.21-b has been
working fine for me so far, but today was the first time since
switching that i had to take my laptop somewhere, so i closed the lid
to suspend it. When i later opened the lid, the laptop woke up, but
the display was blank, or so i thought at first.

Near the top left corner was the cursor, apparently pointing at a
small (10 x 10 pixels, maybe?), blue-ish square. Moving my finger over
the touchpad did not move the cursor. Experimenting a little, i
realised that if i continually slid across the touchpad in the same
direction, the mouse cursor would very gradually move in that
direction.

When i got to an edge of the tiny square, the cursor would appear to
stutter, and bounce back a pixel -- edge flip! The tiny square was my
desktop, so the colour made sense, the cursor movement was scaled to
the same miniature size... it made sense. But why? And, by the way,
the cursor itself was full sized, much larger than the tiny box
itself.

No clues in any log files i could find. E responded to
enlightenment_remote (-restart didn't fix it, -exit exited cleanly and
reset the screen). X itself seems to have the correct resolution (the
cursor was the right size). I haven't had any driver issues, and
haven't changed them any time recently. Does anyone have an idea what
might be going on? As i mentioned, this is the 0.21-beta release, so
if it's a Known Problem, is there maybe a command line work-around to
use for now?

Thanks,
-Conrad.
