Simplified X mode selection

Registered by Matt Zimmerman on 2006-06-14

This blueprint has been superseded. See the newer blueprint "GTK Display configuration tool based on guidance" for updated plans.

Currently, the display modes used by the X server are selected at install time, and can only be changed by reconfiguring using debconf. We should allow the mode to be selected from the desktop environment.
