Description Brian Lovin 2013-09-24 23:15:24 UTC
Software Stack:
Fedora 19
wayland (HEAD) 1.2.91-0-g4125367
drm (HEAD) libdrm-2.4.46-0-gc6d73cf
mesa (9.2) heads/9.2-0-g2cda3f0

intel-driver (HEAD) 1.2.0-0-g6898ab7
weston (HEAD) 1.2.91-0-g7799385

When launching weston-calibrator on a dual head machine (one head a regular monitor, one a touch screen), it's possible for weston-calibrator to only be displayed on the non-touch screen (if the non-touch screen is the primary display). This makes calibration impossible.

Should be fixed by:

This is just heuristics that should work well enough for this kind of simple use cases, but we still need another proper solution for the wider problem as discussed in "Thoughts on getting surfaces to appear on the right output":
But that would be a different issue.
