21:9 screens cannot be used , Why?

Hello , We had feedback from clients that could not use their 21:9 screen ( 3440x1440 )

I 'm really surprised that we have this kind of problems on Ubuntu 20.04 ( same on all distro )

Could you confirm my bug ? https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xrandr/+bug/1895301

isn’t such basic screen usage part of the tests in the desktop team ?

Thanks for filing the bug. I don’t know if anyone on the desktop team has a 21:9 monitor, but they’re not exactly super commonplace. Likely less than 1% of users have one (based on some online public stats). They certainly should be supported, and a bug is exactly how we can track that. Thank you.

I don’t think it’s useful to have the bug conversation and another conversation here about it. So I’ll close this thread and we can keep the conversation going there instead.
