Ubuntu :: Possible To Scale With 1920x1080?

Was wondering if its possible to scale ubuntu theme/environment to suite 1920x1080. Im using my comp on a 42" plasma TV, and it gets kinda small with the default scale.

Don't want to change to a lower res, simple because it's not as pretty and the toolbars are almost hidden.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: 8.04 Can't Get 1920x1080 From New LCD Monitor?
I finally decided to replace my monitor. I got a HANNspree HF225 with a native resolution of 1920x1080.

Alas, my Ubuntu 8.04 only allows me to select the 1400x1050 (50Hz) as the highest resolution.

I tried using gksudo displayconfig-gtk, to no avail. (yes, I also tried selecting Generic LCD display 1920x1080).

The strange thing is the monitor itself (via its OSD information) says it is running 1680x1050 (at H: 65.6KHz V: 60.3Hz).

Clearly, Ubuntu 8.04 can't see the real hardware capabilities of my system. My graphics card is "nVidia Corporation NV44 [GeForce 6200 LE] (rev a1)". I know it is capable of delivering the 1920x1680 because it has been previously driving 1920x1600 on a DELL P1110.

how to get 1920x1080 on my system?

Ubuntu :: 10.04 Won't Recognize 1920x1080 Resolution?
I have a serious problem: I just installed Ubuntu 10.04 on my computer which has a Hanspree HF257 25-inch monitor with a native resolution of 19201080. I have an NVIDIA GeForce 9400GT graphics card, and before I installed the proprietary NVIDIA drivers, the screen resolution was fine, but after I installed the recommended drivers, the screen resolution went way down after restart!

The monitor is recognized only as a "CRT-1 (CRT-1 on GPU-0)″ under the NVIDIA X-Server settings. The highest resolution I can adjust it to is 1360768. I have no idea what to do, but I'm sure there's a fix for this, right?

Ubuntu :: Cannot Get 1920x1080 Resolution On Natty?
I installed Natty about a month ago. First time i installed, i got this same problem.Installation pendrive works on 1920x1080, and the first time it boot it was lovely.I did all the recommended installs, including ATI / AMD proprietary FGLRX Drivers, and the second time my machine boot, it came on 1600x1200. I did some troubleshooting with xrandr, and was able to get HD resolution again, until i rebooted, and then i couldn't even get it with Xrandr.

This is really driving me nuts. I was able to get it fixed by going into recovery mode, and running ubuntu in low graphics mode, i was choosing reconfigure and it worked sometimes, but now i'm stucked with 1600x1200 and i hate it. I don't want to go back to windows, and i really followed every trhead i found with solutions and can't get it to work.I forgot to mention that i have an Ati Radeon 4670 video card. Also i am a total n00b on linux, i am good at following instructions though

Ubuntu :: Icon And Text Too Small @ 1920x1080?
I just bought a new laptop with 1920x1080 resolution. I installed Ubuntu 11.04 via "wubi" just now, however everything in ubuntu is too small to keep my eye comfortable. I searched the web and forum and tried to enlarge those, but the solution was about Ubuntu front and folder icon only (change in "appreance", and "edit->preference"). The front and icon are still small in other applications, such as Google chrome, firefox. Note: the change of front size in chrome and firefox only changes those on the page, but not page background, not the size in tab and anything else.

Ubuntu :: Refresh Rate At 1920x1080 Resolution?
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 I have ATi HD5700 and its Catalyst drivers downloaded from

The monitor is Hanns-G HH251 (25", 1920x1080@60 max) I cannot make either "Display Settings" or "ATI Configuration" to show the refresh rate of 60 Hz as available. When I change the resolution to 1440x900 then I can pick 60 (but obviously I don't want that resolution). However, if I pick 1920x1080, the only two refresh rates available are 25 and 30 Hz, causing the image to flicker and whatnot.

Ubuntu :: Display Out Of Bounds At 1920x1080 Resolution?
I just put a HTPC together, it's a MSI 890GXM-G65 RT motherboard (on-board video, no video card) connected to a TV (SAMSUNG LED UN40B70) via an HDMI cable. I've put latest Ubuntu Desktop 10.10 on it. Installation went beautifully, the screen placed correctly, However, once it was actually running, the display is totally wrong. Looks like it's too far to the left and up - there's nothing on the screen except for background, at 1920x1080 resolution. Once I change the resolution to lower, it works.

Ubuntu :: Setting Screen Resolution 1920x1080
Monitor: Asus VH242H
Graphics: XGI Volari Z9s

The native resolution of my monitor is 1920x1080. I can't get Ubuntu 10.04 to display at this resolution. Current xorg.conf (relevant sections):


I was able to get the terminals to run at 1920x1080 by adding Code: video=sisfb:mode:1920x1080x32,rate:70,mem:4096 to my grub command. That's nice, but I really want Xorg running at that resolution, and it didn't. I've been working on this for hours, through dozens of gdm restarts with every variation of the above I can think of.?

Slackware :: 12.2 - 1920x1080 Resolution
After 2 weeks of the nightmare that is KDE4 I've been driven back to S12.2 and the sanity of KDE3.5.

However, I'm unable to get higher res than 1024x768. Monitor is a BenQ G222HDL and card is an ATI Radeon HD4760.

Relevant section of my xorg.conf is:

As you can see I've mucked about a little bit with alternative drivers and resolutions and poked around via google without anything obvious popping up, but I suppose the driver is the issue. # randr only ever gives me 'can't open display'. I realize this is a new monitor on an older OS. Should I try the xf86 drivers from ATI, or will running xorgconfig do the trick with such a new card?

Ubuntu :: 1920x1080 Resolution Monitor / Does It Support Grub?
I installed Ubuntu 10.04 on a new system. The system is not showing correct resolution in the grub menu and the splash screen is black, until I reach the logon screen.Screen resolution, and video rendering after booting is picture-perfect.I presume this is a bug of the sort "VBE does not support 1920x1080 wide screen resolution".Or, maybe I am missing some point.I hope there must be some workaround.

Ubuntu :: Can't Change Screen Reolution To 1920x1080 / Enable This?
I got a TV I'm using as a monitor, and it has support for 1080p (1920x1080 resolution), but I can't change it to that. I've tried using the graphical monitor preferences and adding to to xrandr manually and trying to change it, but it doesn't work.

The computer I'm using has a (crappy) intel g31 graphics chipset, could this be why? I looked it up and it says it should support it. It also says that it needs a special fix/driver because they had problems, but I can't/don't know how to get the driver on ubuntu.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Scrolling/rolling When Resolution Is 1920x1080?
I recently bought a 37" Vizio M370NV HDTV and connected it to my Kubuntu 10.10 desktop.Currently my resolution is 1280x1024, so there is black bars on the side of my screen. I want my resolution to be 1920x1080, which is what the TV/monitor says is it's primary resolution. However, when I set that resolution in nvidia-settings, my screen scrolls up. By that I mean that my screen keeps moving up my monitor and appearing at the bottom.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Runlevel 3 1920x1080 Screen Resolution?
It's looking like from the options on the grub CL that the highest I can go is 1280x1020x32bit. But it still does not fit my entire screen (23'' LED) if there is a way to make runlevel 3 1920x1080, I have a Nvidia GTX460. Also, whether or not I can do it, how do I save the settings, so I don't have to type it in at the bottom of the screen in the boot menu? How do I drop back to runlevel 3, when I'm in the x system (GUI)?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: HDMI Output To 32" LCD (1920x1080) - Nvidia And Video Performance
I have noticed that, using nvidia's latest drivers, HDMi output to my 32" LCD (1920x1080) and totem or vlc, the video on my LCD gets a bit "choppy" when the image changes faster.. some bars start appearing on the moving parts of the image.. like the system is having trouble rendering the video. This doesn't happen on my laptop screen even when both displays are running at the same time.

Also, this problem doesn't appear in windows 7, everything works perfectly there with one odd thing... the picture gets "choppy" on the laptop screen when I'm running both at the same time. It's not that noticeable, but I can tell the difference between windows and ubuntu in quality and it's annoying me

Ubuntu Servers :: Best Way To Scale Up Server Set Up?
what is the best way to scale up server set up for a high growth site? without getting a heart attack, where you can just open up a beer and watch tv as you push a red button to scale the server. lets assume the site is getting 100,000 people a day.And, in thirty days, it will be getting 9 million people a month, and in a few months it will get 9 million people a day. (I know it is a bit crazy)How would you structure a roll out?

two load balancers, two front end app servers, two database servers, and a cdn.And as traffic builds up, you would up the front end app servers, and maybe add two slave database servers? and maybe replicate the servers to east and the west to serve different parts of the world.What kind of hardware? I know it is a bit weird question, and it matters a lot on app, server hardware, server set up, style, class, lifestyle etc - I just want to see if there are any aha moments and awesome set ups that I am not aware of.

Debian Multimedia :: Forcing 1920x1080 Resolution Via Catalyst Control Center?
I've been working on this off and on for the last couple of days and I can't seem to get this working. I'm using the latest Catalyst Control Center (11.5) and I've also got xorg.conf set up for this resolution. If I switch the driver in xorg.conf to radeon from fglrx, I can get my 1920x1080 resolution (only on GNOME;the login screen and Fluxbox have a black bar on the left that cuts off about a quarter of the screen). When using fglrx and Catalyst Control Center, I can only get a maximum resolution of 1600x1200.

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier"Manual Layout"
Screen "Screen-0" 0 0

Ubuntu :: Compiz-Scale Options Window Gone 10.10
I have just upgraded from 10.04 -> 10.10 and my 'scale' plugin is not working properly in compiz (the rest works well).I do have the effect working with "super+a, super+w" , but "edge" does not work.I can modify values via gconf, I have: "initiate_all_edge" set to "BottomLeft" but this doesnt respond.The weirdest thing is that the compiz scale options part instead of giving me 4 tabs of options -> gives this.(image below) i tried reinstalling a few times & purge compiz + install back, but result remained the same.

Ubuntu :: Ordering Of Windows For Compiz Scale?
I have a dual monitor setup and I've used Scale for a few days now, but I'm still confused about the expected ordering of the windows within the same workspace. For example, the last focused window isn't necessarily placed at a fixed spot, e.g., top left corner. It seems that if a window on my left monitor is last focused and I invoke it on my right screen, then it'd appear on the top left corner. However, if a window on my right monitor is last focused, it gets past just the last focused window on my left monitor. The last focused window on my left monitor eventually shifts to the bottom right corner.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Make Webcam Gray-scale
I want my webcam to be gray-scale when I use it in Skype and with other programs. I know I can make it gray-scale with Cheese, but that is only with that program. In windows it is a program called Manycam that allows the user to play it in the background and makes the webcam gray-scale over all. Is there an equivalence to Manycam for Ubuntu?
