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.?
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.
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)?
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)‚Ä≥ 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?
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
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?
I just installed Ubuntu 9.10 I have ATi HD5700 and its Catalyst drivers downloaded from http://ati.amd.com
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.
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.
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.
I've instaled 11.4 and in personal configurations the resolution is set fine (1920x1080), but it's don't maximizes all monitor area. I'm using Radeon 5670 with a TV/Monitor HDMI connection 1080p.In Win7 running fine.
I have ubuntu 10.10 installed on my computer in dual boot with windows 7, but i am using a 27-inches Samsung screen through an hdmi cable to connect my computer. whenever i try getting on ubuntu, i cannot see the top and bottom of the desktop (so i cant access the menu bar or anything!)(while using my spare vga cable) i tried downloading the nvidia driver & utility for my video card (gtx 460), but even using that, i could not setup my screen resolution manually. When i setup my windows, i was able to manually setup a custom resolution (i.e. 1842x1026) through the nvidia utility to be able to get the screen the fit properly.
I was wondering if there is any way i could do the same for ubuntu, perhaps through terminal.
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.
I'm trying to change the output resolution of a HTPC that's connected to a 720p plasma from (an auto set) 1024x768 to 1280x720 so that the output is the correct 16:9 ratio for the plasma.The HTPC is running Ubuntu 11.04 with a GeForce 7600GT and is connected via VGA cable to the plasma. The plasma automatically detects the PC input as XGA.
The worst effect of this is 16:9 media (video clips etc) looks really stretched out with the letterbox bars on the top and bottom and icons in general don't look square.Nvidia driver has been activated via Additional Drivers but the message reads;
The driver is active but not in use"
Any ideas what that means? Should I be looking for a way to disable whatever the Ubuntu driver is so the proprietry one is in use?Under nVidia Xserver settings I don't have an option for a 1280x720 resolution, the next closest resolution for 16:9 is 1360x768 but then portions of the output are no longer visible on the plasma.Could it be as simple as using the DVI output (not the VGA) from the graphics card to the plasma to get a correct reading of the input. Still, I wouldn't have a setting for 1280x720
I have what I think is a pretty eay question. I'm trying to set the screen resolution of my new 10.10 installation to 1920x1080. The monitor only supports up to 1024x768, but i would like more area. I've done this before but I forgot how i did it. In the end the screen spilled off to the sides and when I ran my cursor over to that section it would disply it. I have a feeling that i need to edit my xorg.conf file, but my nvidia drive has some new mode types and i figured I'd ask before making random changes.
I just installed Suse 11.3 64bit on a new build. My video card is a nvidia gt240. I am using the default drivers. My monitor is a NEC 17" LCD.
When I boot up the screen resolution defaults to 1280x1024. I can go to applications>configure desktop>display and set it to 1024x768, which is my resolution of choice, and it works until I reboot or log out and log back in, then it resets to 1280x1024.
I would like to make 1024x768 the default so I don't have to keep changing it. Is there a way to do this? The output of xrandr looks like this:
$~> xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1024 x 768, maximum 8192 x 8192 DVI-I-1 connected 1024x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 338mm x 270mm 1280x1024 60.0 + 1152x864 75.0 1024x768 75.1 70.1* 60.0
Is there something I can change to set a new default resolution?
New install of 5.4 and I have a dell S1909W display that runs 1440x900. I don't run a windowed environment and only use CLI. I am only getting 25 lines per screen with huge text and I need to set the resolution so I can actually work :) I tried adding vga=866 to my /boot/grub/menu.lst file at the end of the kernel line but nothing changes after reboot.
I installed Squeeze with LXDE on my old 600MHz Celeron, 256MB ram computer. But, every time I boot, the screen resolution is wrong. I can set it right with a few clicks of the mouse, but next time I boot up it has reverted to the wrong setting. I found that this problem has been reported on the LXDE forum, but the official response seems to be that it is not their problem.
I just set up my dad's pc with Debian Sqeeze. It runs perfectly fine and after trying a lot of distro's Debian is the only one that will not crash or freeze up X. Now we're forced to using my own 17" monitor instead of his 19" wide screen since the max res is 1280 x 1024 in Sqeeze. What he needs is 1360 x 768. I found out in the wiki that xorg.conf needs to be edited. Since the file does not exist it needs to be created by running "Xorg -configure" in tty after stopping GDM. when running the "Xorg -configure" command this is the output;
" vmware: Please ignore above "FATAL: Module vmwgfx bot found." (++) Using config file: "/root/xorg.conf.new" (==) Using system config directory "/usr/share/X11/xorg.conf.d" Number of created screens does not match number of detected devices. Configuration failed. "
It's an Intel Sandy Bridge integrated graphics chip. I've tried running "Xorg:1 -configure" as mentioned in a forum but that simply gives me a "unknown command" answer.
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.
When I boot my computer I get this message: Warning Pc video resolution is out of range Change setting to recommended resolution 1280x1024 @60mh So I hit ctrl alt f1 I typed in Sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg Nothing happens. It's been very frustrating because with everything that I've looked up it says that it's suppose to guide me through something. I desperately need my computer for school.
I am trying to use a large LCD TV as a monitor for movies, etc. I have the user set up and working. But, I'm struggling with GDM. I rather miss the days where a few cryptic settings in XORG.conf file made everything work correctly.
I added some lines to /etc/gdm/Init/Default and /etc/gdm/PreSession/Default. In both cases I added: xrandr -newmode "1360x768_60.00" xrandr -addmode VGA1 "1360x768_60.00" xrander -output VGA1 "1360x768_60.00"
The next line is original and is /sbin/initctl -q emit login . . . . . .
I'm not sure if I'm not adding the xrandr info to the right files/locations or if my xrandr stuff is wrong. For the user, I just logged in via VNC and changed the resolution. That part was easy.
When I boot up, Grub flashes a message along the lines of "vga=7xx is deprecated, use setting y instead,". Where would grub2 log this error, and what file would I have to edit to change from the old to new resolution setting?
Before I upgrade to 10.4 It would be nice to find the best solution to this problem. I use a KVM switch that dont pass the EDID info from the screen to the OS. To solve this, that is, to get the correct screen resolution, i need to pass monitor and screen info to the OS at every startup. One way is to ad a script to /etc/gdm/init/default, or in KDE /etc/kde4/kdm/Xsetup.
I need to set my resolution to 1280x1024. Problem is, that the NVIDIA X Server Settings does not display such a resolution and I want to use that! My monitor is an LCD capable of upto 1280x1024 75HZ resolution. I'm using Ubuntu 10.10. I did the xrandr command to check what resolutions are available and its output was:
Failed to get size of gamma for output default Screen 0: minimum 320 x 240, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768 default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm 1024x768 50.0 60.0* 800x600 51.0 52.0 53.0 680x384 54.0 55.0 640x480 56.0 512x384 57.0 400x300 58.0 320x240 59.0
In NVIDIA X Server Settings, the list of available resolutions are: (all of the above) 1152x864 1360x768 I have NVIDIA GeForce 9500GT.
Ubuntu 10.04, nVidia GeForce 9400, driver ver 195.36.15.When I log in, the system always comes up in 800x600 mode. I went into the NVIDIA X Server Settings page and changed it to my preferred setting of 1152x864. I hit Apply, then Save to X Configuration File (with correct root password).All is well until restarting. Then it reverts back. The update doesn't stick. How can I make this the permenant setting?
I have finally decided to reach out for help because I've been messing around for 3 days with xorg.conf and I'm a beginner and not getting it right. What I want to do is to use only my external monitor (1920x1200) via DisplayPort when my computer is docked. And then my laptop display (1280x800) when undocked. I am using Ubuntu 10.04.
I have setup System->Preference->Monitor: Unchecked <same image in all monitors>, turned off laptop display, and set External monitor to 1920x1200. After doing this everything works when in Xwindows. The resolution is correct when I am docked, and when I am undocked it defaults to my laptop display.
The ONLY problem with using the System->Preferences->Monitor is that when I start up the computer when docked the external monitor goes to the incorrect (laptop screen) resolution at the initial login screen. After I login the resolution corrects itself but it's messy with reinitialization of the screen and my icons being all messed up. I think this happens because these settings only take effect after logging in.
I believe I have to edit the xorg.conf to get my setup working at the login screen. Can someone please tell me how to this.
