Ubuntu :: Cannot Get 1920x1080 Resolution On Natty?
May 23, 2011
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
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?
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.
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 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 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'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'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 have done a scratch install of Ubuntu 11.04 (Natty) successfully today. I am facing problem while adjusting my monitor resolution.
My motherboard is pretty old, Kobian 845GLNDSMx. When I tried to adjust the resolution from Preferences -> Monitors, the resolution is shown as 800x600 (4:3), Refresh Rate - 0Hz and Rotaion as normal. "Monitor Unknown" is highlighted on the window. Moreover, "Detect Monitors" doesn't work.
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.
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.
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.
Im using a Vizio 22" 1080p LCD HDTV has a monitor for my Ubuntu server over HDMI. It works great, except I cannot see the top or bottom bar at any resolution. Id really like to get it working at 1920x1080. Ive been tinkering with the xorg.conf a bit to no avail.
I have a Sony Vaio vpc-sb1v9e connected to a Asus22ti1 monitor. I have installed Debian 8.1 and the resolution is 1920x1080 with the hdmi port connected. The problem is that the desktop not fit the monitor size, and is more large and more higher than the monitor.
Here Code: Select allxrandr output:
Code: Select allmichele@nbook:~$ xrandr Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 8192 x 8192 LVDS1 connected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) ¬† ¬†1366x768¬† ¬† ¬† 59.94 + ¬† ¬†1360x768¬† ¬† ¬† 59.80¬† ¬† 59.96¬† ¬† ¬†1024x768¬† ¬† ¬† 60.00¬† ¬† ¬†800x600¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†60.32¬† ¬† 56.25¬† ¬† ¬†640x480¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†59.94¬† VGA1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) HDMI1 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
What's the problem? How can I restore the correct size?
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
I'm running 10.10. I have a Nvidia GTX 460. My actual resolution is only 1024x768. I can't get the native resolution (1280x1024). Nvidia-settings does not show this resolution. Google hasn't helped at all so far, and I have installed the Nvidia Driver.
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.
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 was evaluating a live distro on a USB drive and the resolution got changed from my normal 1680X1050 to 1024X768. I normally run SuperOS (ubuntu derivative) at 1680X1050 on my 22" LCD flatscreen monitor. The users manual for the monitor says that the optimum resolution is 1680X1050. Now when I go to system, preferences, monitors the monitor is unknown and the highest resolution that is available is 1360X768. I have clicked on Detect Monitors but not sure anything is happening. I have went to system, administration, additional drivers but none show up. The OSD menu for the monitor is showing 1380X768. I haven't been able to make any changes to the setting. I push the button that is supposed to get me into the sub-menu but nothing happens.
I've installed Ubuntu 9.10-karmic koala-and all runs good except screen resolution. I don't have any graphic card, and with windows I never had problems...but with linux max resolution is 800x600. what can I do to set a resolution of 1024x760 or similar ?
I have googled this and I refuse to believe the answer is "older video card" or "ubuntu". Does anyone know what boot parameters to use or how to get Fedora to start the install process in a resolution other than the "Optimum resolution"? resolution=640x40 vga=ask. These do not work. They set the debug display but when the graphical portion starts it defaults to the "optimum resolution" and the message displays "Cannot Display This Video Mode". As you consider the answer, think this is a new computer, blank hard disk, etc. I am installing Fedora 10. Tried 11 and Vista seems less buggy, prefer 10 or 9.
I read that Natty will use Unity as the preferred desktop environment, together with Compiz. I found that on my system Compiz - while very neat - will cause instability so I'd rather not use it. How would the desktop stack look for a user not wanting to run Compiz under Natty? Can I use Mutter with Unity? Or maybe I should replace Unity with Gnome? Will my Ubuntu like this (replacing Unity with Gnome)? Will Ubuntu make it easy for users to dump Compiz if they want to do so?
I use Ubuntu 10.10 Maverick Meerkat.I've heard of a newer version:Ubuntu 11.04(AKA,the Natty Narwhal).My question is:shall I upgrade to Natty?Any recommendations? When was the Maverick Meerkat released?
I'm on Natty since yesterday but I started the day before. My first impression was great. I now had an option top upgrade from 10.10 and not loose my data! So I did. It all went fine until the point where The Upgrade tries to restore my applications. It failed and returned the message: unbalanced group option, expect badness.
And that was it! And I would have been waiting a very long time if I wasn't looking the details of what's going on because from here and after a 3rd try, I went to sleep online to find out I was still expecting badness the next day. I did a hard reboot and tried login in. I reached the login screen with success but could never login. I was using the encryption options which it seems comes after the restoration of application.
The symptoms are those of a wrong password. I finally did a clean install and restored my data from my backups (wouldn't try something new without a backup). Otherwise, I like Unity. I see a few things that needs polishing here and there but I don't mind using it. I think that voices from people liking it need to be heard as well because they usually don't have a reason to complain and it then looks like every body think Unity is not good.
I would like that the shortcut <super>+<space> open gnome-do. I set all this in gnome-do already, but everytime I hit the <super> key, the unity menu shows up. I'm using 11.04, 32bit on a lenovo 3000 V200.
