Comment 135 for bug 1308105

Note that there is a Ubuntu package of 4.12.1 available now http://packages.ubuntu.com/zesty/xfce4-settings which can be installed at least without dependency issues on Ubuntu 16.04.

The upstream commit that fixes the issue is here https://git.xfce.org/xfce/xfce4-settings/commit/?id=2233f20a7ec6d7cb7dcc5752d62d98e37d9c21ad.

As mentioned in the upstream bug report: "[...] one issue in the patch; when enabling the crtc it _unconditionally_ sets the output crtc (preferred) mode, rotation etc. properties". Anyway it was decided to merge the patch and address that issue in a new bug #. So maybe the best way is to do the same here, i.e. mark this as fixed in zesty and apply the patch in xenial and yakkety. And create a new bug for the lost screen resolution and other settings.
