    Default XRandR Equivalent Published For Wayland, Weston

    Phoronix: XRandR Equivalent Published For Wayland, Weston

Now Weston has received a similar port...

    I for one fully agree that a client should only be able to _ask_ for a resolution, not _set_ it. I had enough of it with crashing games and/or bad drivers on Linux that left me with a crappy desktop at super low/broken res.

    From what I can tell, that's because they never scale down the resolution, they just scale up the viewport to match the native one instead.

    Something like XRandR is not something that is desirable for wayland/weston so I'm not sure why you seem so happy about this.
