[Bug 1492820] Re: unity greeter does not respect if a screen is in portrait orientation


I just found more weird behaviour of the greeter: after resuming from
"suspend" with a logged in session, the second screen wallpaper was
rotated correctly, but filled the whole screen an hence appeared

When I restarted the PC and got to the greeter login screen again, the
second wallpaper was again rotated the wrong way. I started typing my
password and then pressed Escape - suddenly the login prompt was moved
to the second screen (still 90° rotated).

So to summarize:
- Since the wallpaper for additional screens can not be configured properly (aspect ratio and orientation of screens might be different), it's probably best, to not display any wallpaper on the additional screens.
- Detection of the main screen on which to show the login prompt is not "reliable"

I use the NVIDIA driver 355.06 by the way.

  unity greeter does not respect if a screen is in portrait orientation

Status in unity-greeter package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Ubuntu 15.04
  unity-greeter 15.04.4-0ubuntu1

  I have two screens. The main screen is in landscape orientation, the
  second screen is in portrait orientation. The unity greeter displays
  the wallpaper on the second screen as if the screen was also in
  landscape orientation, so it appears 90° rotated.

  I would like to have the wallpaper on the second screen rotated
  correctly or not displayed at all (just a black screen).
