X11, Window Managers Over the past couple of months, and especially over the past couple of weeks, I've been working very hard to write and complete my thesis. I performed all the work on Windows 7, but now that the thesis is finally done, submitted, and accepted, I installed Ubuntu - and immediately I was reminded of why I do not do any serious work on Linux: the train wreck that is X.org.

Resolved WONTFIX.

this is outside of the scope of what Qt can do. there are some X server
extensions being worked on to be able to do that.


So it seems like maybe it isn't just the toolkits that need to implement it, and X is missing stuff? Or is the dev here just wrong?

X may be missing something. I had been under the impression that GTK supported display migration already (just nothing seems to exist to perform it), which is essentially what is needed. In the case of a driver crash I suspect X would need something adding to catch it, and perform a display migration somehow.
