Description Rian 2016-10-18 03:57:23 UTC
After issuing a rescale command with xrandr 1.5, the pointer cannot move past the original, unscaled screen resolution.

xrandr --output eDP-1 --scale 1.5x1.5

Windows can occupy the whole screen, but the pointer runs into an invisible barrier at 75% across or 75% down the screen.

This is a bug that used to exist back in 2011, with xrandr 1.3, and was resolved. It's back.

Using display driver i915 on xfdesktop4.
