Bug Description

Binary package hint: gnome-control-center

Lucid final release amd64 alternate install CD
iiyama ProLite H511S LCD monitor

gnome-control-center 1:2.30.0-0ubuntu4

Preferences -> Monitors brings up a green box containing the text "Liyama North America 20". It should be iiyama, not Liyama. (And FWIW the monitor was purchased in England.)

Thank you for taking the time to report this bug and helping to make Ubuntu better. A new version of GNOME Control Center is available on Maverick and we are wondering if this bug is still an issue for you with that version? Could you please test and comment back? Thanks in advance.

Thank you for responding to my bug report. It's a trivial one but we might as well get these things right.

I have just tried booting with the 10.10 amd64 live CD and the text string is still as before. It hasn't changed at all.

I am seeing the same faulty behaviour with Iiyama's ProLite E2208HDS monitors. This string is used:

Liyama North America 22"

The proper name should read something like this:

Iiyama ProLite E2208HDS

Interestingly, the string does seem to get reported properly by some tools. The disper monitor switching utility (https://launchpad.net/~disper-dev/+archive/ppa) when run with the -l flag, reports this string:

Idek Iiyama PLE2208HDS

Which is fairly close to what it actually says on the monitor. This monitor was bought in the Netherlands.

in fact the code is using the hwdata version which has the same issue

In 2011 I sent a patch fixing this to the then-maintainer of hwdata. That patch apparently never made it through, possibly because of a maintainer change. Today I've sent the patch again to the developer who last made commits to the project.

Jeroen Hoek (mail-jeroenhoek) wrote :

The patch I sent was ultimately accepted upstream. 'Liyama' should now be spelled as 'Iiyama' on system's using this database.
