Hi all,

I was trying to fix that display resolution settings, 
by porting xrandr code to xfce. 
I have very limited xfce experience so what Jerone is doing is of cause
I had ported display setting confirmation dialog from gnome so far,
 and then realized that randr 1.2 support is disabled in
/* not available yet */
So when this new Jerone's code will be available?
Can I wait for it (which is of cause preferable) or have to implement some
through away solution because I need it for the customer soon?
