Software :: Xrandr Not Changing The Resolution (Debian Lenny)?

Jan 1, 2011

GNOME decided not to use the correct resolution ever. In Ubuntu, it got it automatically and that said it should be 1366x768, and when i run this:

Code:

xrandr -s 1366x768

I get

Code:

Size 1366x768 not found in available modes

So then I tried to run xrandr and find out what was available and I got:

Code:

$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
default connected

[code]....

So when I try to change it to 1024x768, I get the same "not found in available modes" message.

Debian :: How To Set Display Resolution When Xrandr Cannot Work

Sep 19, 2015

I've just completed my first pc build, and installed Ubuntu 8.2. My build was focussed around a legacy Apple Cinema 30" display, which has 2560x1600 @ 60fps resolution. The motherboard - Gigabyte H97N-Wifi - supports that display, although the display drivers are supplied by Intel, and are therefore nonfree. On startup, my display resolution defaults to 1200x800. This is what /var/log/Xorg.0.log says about it:

Code: Select all[snip]
[     1.830] (II) intel(0): Output VGA1 has no monitor section
[     1.881] (II) intel(0): Output HDMI1 has no monitor section
[     1.882] (II) intel(0): Output HDMI2 has no monitor section
[     1.882] (II) intel(0): Output HDMI3 has no monitor section
[     1.933] (II) intel(0): EDID for output VGA1
[     1.986] (II) intel(0): EDID for output HDMI1
[     1.986] (II) intel(0): Manufacturer: APP  Model: 9232  Serial#: 33555281

[code]...

I bumped into a webpage which stated that xrandr does not work with proprietary drivers, and if that's true, I can't get it to change resolution on my screen.

Debian :: Lenny - Changing Console Font Size?

Dec 31, 2010

So I set up that OS I was talking about, everything I need, staying away from the "Startx" command, and it's working very very awesomely except for ONE little problem. The console font size is too big for me, and honestly I don't know how to change that. Coming out of Ubuntu, I'm realizing I don't know as much about config files as I think I do :P

Any way I can change the font size? When I use the GParted live cd, I see a line in the start up that mentions changing the frame buffer to 700 x 48 or something, I'll get specifics soon (computer's not on me) and it makes the font and everything just how I like it.

Debian :: Just Installed Lenny - Only Resolution 640x480

Jan 10, 2011

Just upgraded from Etch and now I'm stuck at 640x480 resolution. Xorg.conf doesn't show any display modes, and xrandr gives the only resolution as 640x480. The laptop is a Toshiba Tecra 730XCDT. I know its a doorstop, but 800x600 worked fine under Etch. Anyone know how to to change it back? It's really hard to look at right now.

Debian :: Nvidia On Lenny Only Allows 640x480 Resolution

Apr 23, 2009

I've finally managed to get the nvidia driver on my Lenny box. However I've now found that I can't change resolution from 640x480, the nvidia panel shows this and 320x240 as the only resolution. The layout shows "hidden as under 600 pixels" If I go to gnome screen resolutions it only shows 640x480. If I plug a second monitor in it won't detect it.
I'm using NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.51-pkg1.run, older versions appear not to work with Lenny crashing x on boot. How to change resolution on the nvidia in Lenny?

Debian :: Lenny Xfce On Virtualbox - Can't Change Resolution

Mar 11, 2010

Well I have installed lenny from netinstall, with Xfce on a virtual machine, everything runs smooth and I really like how does it work, I just have a little big problem, the resolution is too high, it is higher than the host resolution, if I have to work in the down part of the screen I have to scroll down in host, it is kinda annoying, under screen config (right click>configuration>screen config) for resolution only the default option is available. I have googled and I have found that /etc/X11/xorg.conf must be modified to use another resolution, but I'm not sure of what to change or what to do exactly.

Debian :: Text / Icon / Window Sizing And Changing Resolution?

Feb 17, 2015

I am running Debian Jessie with Gnome 3.14.2 on a Macbook Pro 15" with retina display. My resolution is currently set to 2880:1800 and any time I try to lower it, the whole screen goes to black (even if I change it to something in the 16:10 ratio) and I just have to keep force restarting when doing that. I want to lower it because a lot of stuff is really small. Certain aspects of windows in programs are so small, and in order to properly view stuff on my web browser I have to increase the magnification to around 250% for it to be reasonable.

Some things seem normally sized in the windows, and thus make things awkward on the screen, especially in chrome. Is there a way to fix this without having to change my resolution and/or font sizes? Making font sizes bigger on the gnome tweak tool makes things look a bit more awkward because it squeezes the text into small spaces. I would rather keep a higher resolution for a better picture, and changing it seems to mess things up. Here is what my browser looks like (without magnifying). Notice how the font size in the bookmark bar is disproportionately large compared to the buttons in the top right to close/max/min the window.

And this problem isn't just in the browser, but for example, in matlab everything is extremely tiny. I want to make everything larger, not just the text...

Hardware :: Limited Resolution Choices In Xrandr With External Monitor On Hotplug?

May 5, 2010

I am running Fedora 12 on a T400 Thinkpad. When connector my external monitor prior to powering on the computer or if I restart it, I get a lot of resolution choices from xrandr. See below.

Code:
$ xrandr
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1440 x 900, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 303mm x 190mm
1440x900 60.0*+ 50.0
1024x768 60.0

[Code].....

Is there some daemon I need to restart to detect the monitor resolutions correctly, or is there a module I can reload?

There seem to several variables to reproducing the behavior. If I restart without the laptop without the monitor plugged in, log in, and then, plug the monitor in with the monitor powered on prior to plugging, all resolutions are detected properly. However, if I plug the monitor in with it powered off, then power it on, I only get the few options shown in above. Once I get the reduced number of options, it seems to stay that way till I restart regardless of how I unplug the monitor.

I have found a work-around by just forcing the modes with xrandr --newmode and xrandr --addmode, but I would much rather have the modes autodetected.

Hardware :: Finding The Maximum Supported Resolution Of Video Card By Using Xrandr?

Aug 25, 2010

I am trying to find the maximum supported resolution of my video card by using xrandr. My card is an NVidia GeForce Go 7300 (in a laptop). The official documentation does not list specific resolutions that are supported. My laptop display is detected as "AUO" in the NVidia X Server Settings dialog (Ubuntu 10.04 amd64) and has a native resolution of 1280x800. However, I would like to know what is the maximum resolution that I could use on a display with the VGA adapter irrespective of whether the laptop's display is on. This is what I get from xrandr: Screen 0: minimum 512 x 384, current 1280 x 800, maximum 2304 x 864 default connected 1280x800+0+0 0mm x 0mm

1280x800 50.0* 51.0 56.0 52.0
1024x768 52.0 50.0

[code]....

I am guessing the maximum width of 2304 would be for using TwinView with the laptop's 1280-width display next to a 1024 CRT or similar. Surely these cannot be the only supported resolutions. I would like to use a LCD display of width somewhere around 1600 pixels (in particular while turning off the laptop's screen so as to use the external LCD as the primary display) if possible.

OpenSUSE Hardware :: Xrandr Doesn't Detect External Monitor Native Resolution

When I'm connecting second monitor to the laptop, Display Settings applet (and xrandr -q) does not detect full list of supported resolutions. I need to restart my system or perform Log off while monitor is connected to make full list available.openSUSE 11.4 32 bit, Ati Mobility Radeon HD 3450, proprietary ATI driver 11.3 8.831.2-110308a-115935C-ATI.External monitor is FullHD SyncMaster B2330 (1920x1080)I wonder is there any other workaround to access full resolution that does not require restarting of the system?

Ubuntu :: Changing A Display Resolution If You Have A Higher Resolution In 9.1?

Dec 7, 2009

I searched the archives and didn't find anything on this, and was just wondering if there is a problem if you load Ubuntu 9.1 and have a display that's higher than 1024x768. I'd prefer a machine with a higher res, but I've heard that Ubuntu will only go as high as 1024x768.I'm guessing, however, that by 9.1, it should recog the higher res while loading and it won't be a problem, but thought I'd check before shelling out on a machine with a nicer display.

General :: Debian Lenny : How To Install Xfce 4.6 Instead Of Lenny's 4.4

Dec 14, 2009

i was trying to use gnome and kde but i don't like them. I tried xfce and it seem to fit my needs but.My computer is used to be powered on for a weeks. While time passes, a process xfdesktop begin to use more and more memory and to free RAM i need to log out and log in again.

I tried squeeze yesterday on my virtual machine and it has 4.6 and seem not to have that bug, RAM usage is static(yes it still works when i write this and have memory usage 34492k, which is not changing for an hours of usage already), also 4.6 is MUCH better than 4.4.

i already tried adding squeeze to "sources.list" but i can see too many dependencies which should be upgraded if i install 4.6, i'm beginning to afraid it can crash entire GUI(or entire system, i can see there is libc6 required to be updated).

Debian Hardware :: Missing Mode Into Xrandr

However I would like to display the same too onto my CRT. My crt of my pc notebook is blank. Nothing. I read a lot and nothing. I read on xrandr but few info:

Adding new modes

Under some circumstances, some modes might be missing. For instance, if the monitor does not report correct EDID information. Or if the output didn’t have a CRTC available at startup because another output was using it and you disabled it in the meantime.

If a mode exist, you may add it to one output with:

$ xrandr --addmode VGA1 800x600

If the mode does not exist, you may first create it by passing a modeline:

$ xrandr --newmode <ModeLine>

Was great, this one only offers 800 x 600 and some other very low resolutions, The programing allows me to change it and demands I log out, Restart x and log in again, took me a day to figure out what was "x" and how to restart it, but no response. Still the same.

In reading the Forums I see this command allot "/sbin/lspci -m" But, too bad, nobody tells exactly where to type that series of digits to get any response,

Debian Configuration :: Jessie Xrandr Rotation Bad Corruption

Nov 25, 2015

DE: lxde
version: Jessie
using xorg file: no

After changing my video cards from gigabyte HD5450 and saphire X550 to two saphire r7 240s one of my debian installs no longer supports rotating the monitors either with 'Monitor Settings' or xrandr. The only difference between these 2 Jessie installs is that one was upgraded and the other one was fresh. The problem is with the upgraded one. On the fresh installed debian I just put the ati proprietary driver so I won't do further testing on it but xrandr was working fine on it before that.

I tried going over the ATIHowTo [URL] .... and everything looks good. Tried purging the non free firmware and reinstalling. I verified the version numbers of libxrandr2 and kernel of both installs. It is either some scrap left over from wheezy or a configuration file I am not aware of.

So what actually happens is xrandr does not say anything, blanks out all windows on the screen with only their background color and title bar showing, changes the lxpanel to its background pattern except for 2 blanked out boxes almost to the right of the screen( I have 10 tray icons there before it blanks), activates the screen I wanted to rotate with the proper rotation. On my main screen I can't click on anything. On the rotated screen I can right click and I get my openbox right click menu like I do on my main monitor before the command but when I try to run something nothing happens. The only way I can get out of this situation is to go to ctrl-alt-f1, log in as root and type 'service lightdm restart'.

Both of these monitors are connected to the primary video card, an ati r7 240 saphire. The main one is on vga and the other one is on DVI. I also have another monitor connected to HDMI but it's not being used. I have yet another monitor connected to the VGA of the secondary GPU I don't think it's a problem is it? I tried not using 'xrandr --setprovideroutputsource 1 0' and it still did the same thing.

I tried just launching openbox with no LXDE and it did the same thing.

Also another strange thing is when I stop the lightdm service and try to 'startx' or 'xinit' my screens go blank; numlock, control-alt-delete and control-alt-f1 do nothing and the only thing I can do is an emergency REISUB. I didn't configure this install to use startx or xinit yet but should it really lock up my system?

On the affected system my script looks like this (I already did this step by step and the 'rotate left' line is causing the problem):

Code: Select allxrandr --setprovideroutputsource 1 0
xrandr --output VGA-0 --primary --mode 1680x1050 --pos 0x0 --rotate normal
 --output DVI-0 --mode 1680x1050 --pos 0x1050 --rotate left
 --output HDMI-0 --off
 --output VGA-1-1 --off

lxpanelctl restart

Additional info:

Code: Select all$ inxi -G
Graphics:  Card-1: Advanced Micro Devices [AMD/ATI] Oland PRO [Radeon R7 240]

Debian Multimedia :: Using Xrandr To Toggle Laptop Display

Jun 3, 2015

Background: I am running Debian 8 with the Xfce DE on my Toshiba Satellite Laptop.

When at home I will connect my laptop to an external display. I did the same while I was running Ubuntu; however, with Ubuntu I could activate my laptop display by simply disconnecting the external monitor. With Debian + Xfce, unplugging the external monitor leaves my laptop screen blank.

In order to activate my laptop display, I have to open Display settings, turn on laptop display -- which still leaves my laptop screen blank -- and then switch resolution: there are two listings for 1366x768 under resolution, and only the second one restores my laptop display. Please note that if I have both displays on at the same time the size of the output on my external monitor will be reduced to about the size of my laptop's display.

I would like the create a Bash script which can automatically switch between my displays. After some Googling it seems like xrandr is the tool I need for the job. However, I have been having trouble getting it to work.

I tried the command Code: Select allxrandr --output LVDS1 --auto --primary --output HDMI1 --off. This however just turns my external display off without turning on my laptop's display. I suspect this has something to do with the fact that LVDS1 has two modes at 1366x768; perhaps only one of them can actually display? I'm not sure, but anyways here's the output of xrandr:

Code: Select allScreen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192
LVDS1 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 344mm x 193mm
   1366x768      59.99*+
   1360x768      59.80    59.96 
   1024x768      60.00 
   800x600       60.32    56.25 

[Code] ....

Is there a way I can specify that xrandr should use the second 1366x768 mode?

I just realized that the second mode is, in fact, 1360x768 rather than 1366x768...

The good news is that I fixed my problem. It turns out that my backlight was not turning on, giving the appearance that my laptop screen was not displaying anything.

Ubuntu :: Changing Console Resolution Without Vga Parameter?

Mar 4, 2010

Let's start with some context: About a week ago, I saw in the university computer that the text mode consoles(ctrl+alt+f[n]) worked with a great resolution on a 19" wide screen (I think it is 1440x900) running fedora 11. So I wondered if I could make the text consoles at home to work with a good resolution also.So I started to search for that and found the kernel parameter vga= . The problem: it doesn't support 1440x900 or any other 16:10 resolution for my graphic card. Then I thought that maybe fedora uses some module that allows that, because the livecd allows a good resolution (by default) on my desktop computer.

What I thought so far is that fedora is not using vesa for the virtual console (which i think is the driver that ubuntu uses) and I want to know what driver it is and how to use it in ubuntu (either compiling the kernel or simply installing something).I don't even know if my guesses are right or not. But I've gathered some info so far:From /var/log/messages (fedora 12 livecd) I got this part, which I think is the really interesting one.Quote:

Mar 2 22:37:18 localhost kernel: [drm] Initialized drm 1.1.0 20060810
