Description Kirill Müller 2013-11-20 15:39:29 UTC
I am testing a tri-head setup on 13.10 with my Lenovo T430 with the new xserver-xorg-video-intel and the intel-virtual-output tool. I have my laptop screen, DP1 right of it, and DP2 right of it. The cursor is not shown at all on the third (rotated) display. I have suspected 7b0771180dc9bb72 to be the cause, but reverting it (or otherwise modifying affected code) did not seem to help.
Comment 1 Chris Wilson 2013-11-20 16:11:47 UTC
I'll be honest and say that I haven't checked with rotations or general transformations. Can you please attach the output of xrandr --verbose?
Comment 2 Kirill Müller 2013-11-20 17:46:02 UTC
I can do it tomorrow morning, in about 15 hours, when I'm in my office again. If you have access to a tri-head system, this should be easy to replicate.
Comment 3 Kirill Müller 2013-11-21 09:55:17 UTC
I have attached my files to the other ticket: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=71846
Comment 4 Chris Wilson 2013-11-21 12:12:13 UTC
Can you please update your driver (xf86-video-intel) to the tip of git and so install the fix for rotation in the ddx and a more recent version of intel-virtual-overlay?
Comment 5 Kirill Müller 2013-11-22 12:29:57 UTC
Updated to tip of Git: git pull make sudo make install Cursor is still not shown on the third display, even if it's not rotated. Have I forgotten to install something?
Comment 6 Chris Wilson 2013-11-22 13:14:23 UTC
Everything should be ready... Can you please cd /path/to/xf86-video-intel/tools and change the #if 0 on line 69 of virtual.c and make it #if 1, i.e. diff --git a/tools/virtual.c b/tools/virtual.c index 2d5a4e4..c623875 100644 --- a/tools/virtual.c +++ b/tools/virtual.c @@ -66,7 +66,7 @@ #include <fcntl.h> #include <assert.h> -#if 0 +#if 1 #define DBG(x) printf x #else #define DBG(x) Run intel-virtual-output -f | tee ivo.txt and set everything up as desired and try moving the cursor onto the third display. Please then attach ivo.txt.
Comment 7 Kirill Müller 2013-11-22 15:29:50 UTC
Created attachment 89644 [details] As requested, result of intel-virtual-output -b -f | tee ivo.txt git pull make sudo make install After starting `intel-virtual-output`, all three monitors were on. The third was in landscape mode. I have moved the cursor from the first to the second (DP-1) to the third (DP-2) monitor, then back to the second monitor. After this I terminated recording with Ctrl+C. Note that (a part of) the cursor is visible on the *third* monitor if it is right on the edge of the *second* monitor. It disappears as soon as the "hot spot" is on the third monitor. Thanks a lot for looking into this! I hope you don't have to go through the log line by line ;-)
Comment 8 Kirill Müller 2013-11-22 15:30:22 UTC
(Of course I've applied the patch before.)
Comment 9 Chris Wilson 2013-11-22 17:41:13 UTC
Oops. commit 12e974c7bc8c85dbccd3d9ef91c1315e85bbeb6c Author: Chris Wilson <firstname.lastname@example.org> Date: Fri Nov 22 17:37:57 2013 +0000 Revert "intel-virtual-output: Only track the most recent visibility status of the cursor" This reverts commit abf1a16914d993cc150005879375d4bb17fdccf3. We need to track visibility over all clones on a display, not just the last. Regression from commit abf1a16914d993cc150005879375d4bb17fdccf3 [2.99.906] Author: Chris Wilson <email@example.com> Date: Fri Nov 8 17:09:35 2013 +0000 intel-virtual-output: Only track the most recent visibility status of the curso Reported-by: Kirill Müller <firstname.lastname@example.org> Bugzilla: https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=71838 Signed-off-by: Chris Wilson <email@example.com> If you would like to attach a similar ivo.txt for the rotation failure, I can look at that whilst I try to reproduce.
Comment 10 Kirill Müller 2013-11-25 13:12:55 UTC
Cursor is still not shown on the third display (after git pull, make clean, make, sudo make install)
Comment 11 Kirill Müller 2013-11-25 13:23:00 UTC
Apologies. Everything works after `git pull` (for some reason I keep saying `git fetch` instead...).
Comment 12 Chris Wilson 2013-11-25 14:27:04 UTC
No worries, thank you for testing.
