Bug Description

I have a laptop with dock station, and two monitors connected to the dock. Having the monitors both enabled and laptop screen disabled, I have ran
disper -p
and saved the result. Then, with just laptop screen enabled I run
disper -i
piping the previous output. What I've got is:

Garbage metamode: restart X before changing the display configuration to avoid crashes in the nVidia driver

Given that nvidia-settings appears to switch just fine, I hope this is just minor bug. I attach the saved output.

My disper is 0.2.3

This does not reproduce after reboot -- several tries at switching back and forth were successful (except for issue about what is primary monitor, that I'll probably report reparately).

Ok, this bug is back:

$ disper -v -i < ~/System/disper-roaming
Enabled plugins:
Garbage metamode: restart X before changing the display configuration to avoid crashes in the nVidia driver

What does this mean?

we got the same error.

disper version 0.3.0 shipped with Ubuntu 11.10

indipendent of using a profile file or just try disper -e we got the message:

<pre>
Garbage metamode: restart X before changing the display configuration to avoid crashes in the nVidia driver
</pre>

in ubuntu 11.10 looks like the package "gtk2-engines-pixbuf" made some problems with disper, uninstall this and you got no problem

Thanks for analysing this, it's a strange thing!
