General :: Debian - Use High Resolution (same As Desktop) In Virtual Consoles

Dec 6, 2010

I want to use 1920x1080 in the virtual consoles, with:

Debian Squeeze; proprierary ATI drivers.

Switching back to the open source drivers, it works automatically, but I got no clue with these ones. Someone say I should use uvesafb by modifing initramfs accordingly.

Ubuntu :: K Menu Too High Resolution

Feb 24, 2010

I'm running Kubuntu 9.1 (KDE 4.4) on an IBM Thinkpad T30. By default K set my resolution to the highest output of my graphics card (ATI Mobility Radeon 7500) which I was able to change via xrandr at command line, however now the K menus and taskbar appear to be set at too high a resolution of their own to properly display. The K menu and taskbar appear pixelated and unreadable. Is there any way to change this or has Kubuntu likely just installed the wrong driver for my card?

Dec 15, 2010

My screen resolution is only 640x480 after I installed the nVidia driver by authority method of 1-click install.

And then I run nvidia-xconfig,/etc/X11/xorg.conf was built.Restart my PC.

I selected the default mode to run opensuse.My screen was black.

So I select the failsafe mode and remove the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.

I try to copy my ubuntu 10.3 /etc/X11/xorg.conf,but I failed,the screen was black when booting default mode.

Now my LCD resolution is so low.

Graphics card:nVidia Geforce 5200
Monitor:19 inch widescreen LCD

And I can keep the best LCD resolution 1440x900@60Hz in the Windows XP successfully.

Ubuntu :: Streaming Videos Choppy With High Resolution

Mar 16, 2010

Pentium 4, 512MB RAM, GeForce2 MX/MX 400
When my machine ran Windows XP, I was able to watch full screen videos on Hulu, etc. with no problem. Now my machine is running Ubuntu (Koala). I'm using Firefox with the most recent Adobe Plugin (and I've made sure there are no other flash players installed). Streaming video (at low to medium resolution) is pretty choppy but still watchable most of the time. It is not watchable when played full screen or with high resolution. When I download the .flv file and play it through VLC, everything is smooth. Are there any tricks I can try to get the video running more smoothly, like it did before? (Disabling desktop effects made no difference.) Should I just get some more RAM? (I realize my RAM is low, but it didn't seem to effect my video watching before.)

Ubuntu Multimedia :: High Resolution Fonts / Icons Too Small?

May 14, 2010

I hooked up Lucid to a 50" and adjusted the resolution to the max. Gives a clearer sharper picture but all the displayed items are tiny. Is there something I need to do that I haven't? I went from 1086x720 to 1400(approx)x900(approx) and created the problem. Now I'm back at 1086x720. I'm using the Nvidia 195 drivers.

Ubuntu Installation :: Install Almost Worked But Screen Resolution Too High?

Dec 6, 2010

The installation went okay (to start with) on my newly formatted hard drive (after death of Windows XP), but I got an error about 3/4 of the way through. The system said something about starting the desktop to try to resolve or fault find the problem. So I now have a desktop with access to all the menu system. I am feeling my way around slowly getting used to the environment. I think there are bits missing from the install but with no frame of reference I cannot tell what exactly is wrong. One obvious problem is my Monitor screen resolution. In Monitor preferences it is set as 'unknown monitor'.

The detect monitor button does nothing and the resolution is set as 2048 x 1536 which is just too small to see properly on the screen. I am currently using zoom to increase within a window to use at all. I have tried opening a terminal and using the xrandr command which reports the following:

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 2048 x 1536, current 2048 x 1536, maximum 2048 x 1536.
default connected 2048x1536+0+0 0mm x 0mm

Ubuntu :: 9.10 - Console Resolution High And Font Size Small

Jan 3, 2010

I am have upgraded from 9.04 to 9.10 in my laptop. After performing the reboot, the shell/console resolution went very high and the font size went too small. How to regain the old console shell resolution as in 9.04. I require this urgently as my laptop suffers the white screen problem. Switching between Ctrl+Alt+F6 and Ctrl+Alt+F7 I could get back the screen as the change in the resolution switches off and on the screen, so that I can negotiate with the white screen problem.

Ubuntu :: Mouse Cursor Doesn't Display After Login With High Resolution / Fix It?

Aug 12, 2010

Version: Ubuntu 10.04 Desktop

When I change the resolution higher (e.g. 1920x1080),
mouse cursor disappear, until I open the terminal / Ctrl+Alt+F1 (~F6), or run other applications.
But the main problem is, every time after login, the cursor will disappear
(as I know that, before the login, the resolution is 800x600 60Hz, after login, the resolution will be adjusted according to the setting)
So, anyone know how to fix this problem?

I have searched many related posts before,
some of them told me to upgrade the driver, but it didn't help and become worse (cannot boot up, need to re-install ubuntu)
and some of them told me to modify the xorg file, it didn't help, too. (as xorg.conf doesn't exist and I have tried to create one to do the modification, but didn't help)
Any other solution?

OpenSUSE Install :: Default Resolution Too High For Monitor ?

Sep 13, 2011

I have a problem with my screen resolution in Linux. This happens with both openSUSE 11.4 and Fedora 15. The moment my PC restarts after I have installed the operating system it will boot up with a screen resolution higher than my monitor supports. My screen supports a maximum resolution of 1600 x 1200 @ 75Hz and Linux sets the default resolution way too high at boot, now all I get is a message from my screen asking me very nicely to change the signal timings, but I can't because I can't see anything to change it to a lower value (I don't want it so high anyways because then everything is too **** small). My monitor is a SONY GDM-5410 and the Graphics card is an AMD Radeon HD 4870 1GB. It nly works when I boot the system to FailSafe mode, but then I can't cahnge it permanently.

Hardware :: Linux Slows Down Significantly At High Screen Resolution?

Jan 11, 2010

I'm running Ubuntu 9.10 on Athlon Barton 2600+ 2.2GHz, 1GB RAM and ATi Radeon X800 computer at 1600x1200 resolution with 2d (no compositing like Compiz).

Looking into the trouble of slow windows resizing I ended up with the observation that for 1280x1024 it's reasonably fast while at 1024x768 it's extremely fast. But 1600x1200 is my LCD's native resolution.

At 1600x1200 my computer is quite slowly responding, resizing windows or moving columns width makes it stumbling, you can see the action clearly does not go right with mouse, it's always late. KDE 4.x is way slower than Gnome.

I've tried many graphic cards (ATi, NVidia) with all possible drivers - open and proprietary, with or without 3d compositing.

Some graphic parameters:
GL_VERSION: 1.5 Mesa 7.6
GL_VENDOR: DRI R300 Project
GL_RENDERER: Mesa DRI R300 (R420 4A4A) 20090101 AGP 8x x86/MMX+/3DNow!+/SSE TCL

Glxgears gives ~4000fps with windowed mode and ~400fps at 1600x1200 maximized window. What is extremely amazing for me is that windowed mode takes 100% processor usage while 1600x200 maximized window (with window decorations) takes 30% of it, don't understand it.

Windows XP seems not to take care about 1600x1200 resolution, it's really fast.

Some more important devices from lspci:
$ lspci
00:00.0 Host bridge: nVidia Corporation nForce2 IGP2 (rev c1)
00:01.1 SMBus: nVidia Corporation nForce2 SMBus (MCP) (rev a2)

Programming :: Calculations - High Resolution Mandelbrot - Working Code

Feb 25, 2010

I am piecing a Mandelbrot generator up, I have one working to produce a 1,500 x 1,500 picture (which is fairly accurate).

I would like to increase the resolution over 100,000 x 100,000 + (into the millions x millions).

How I can achieve this? What kind of buffer sizes do I need?

(note this code doesnt have any memory allocations yet)

Here is my code so far:

The program outputs the Mandelbrot as a .tga file. I calculated the image on fixed axis of -2 to 2 (on the x and y axis). Image produced: [url]

General :: X-Window Modeline For High Resolution Modes On NEC LCD 22WV Monitor?

Apr 30, 2010

What should look like X Window System (X.Org) modeline to be put in xorg.conf, for high resolution (incuding recommended 1680x1050 @ 50Hz resolution) for 22" NEC LCD 22WV monitor? X.Org autodetect correctly only 800x600 and lower resolution SVGA modes,unfortunately.1,2

How can I generate proper "Modeline" line for xorg.conf? Is information included in NEC_Datasheet_LCD22WV-english.pdf enough (found on NEC LCD 22WV product info page)? What tools there are available to generate proper modeline for a LCD monitor for Linux? MS Windows (MS Windows XP Home) correctly detects and use 1680x1050 resolution; can I somehow get modeline information from MS Windows?


1) It might be hardware problem with the monitor itself, as the same LiveCD Linux distribution that couldn't autodetect recommended 1680x1050 mode for NEC LCD 22WV monitor, correctly autodetects recommended 1440x900 mode for slightly smaller NEC LCD 19WV monitor from the same family, by the same producent.

2) Or it might be problem with graphics card (NVIDIA Riva TNT2 M64) not supporting such resolution, or with graphics driver not supporting such resolution.

Debian :: Can't Get High Resolution With Vesa Xorg Driver (Intel 82845)

Feb 20, 2011

With the upgrade to Squeeze and the 2.6.32-5-686 kernel, my Dell GX260's 82845 video chip suffers from the documented intel driver bug (freezes within a few minutes). I tried to fall back to the vesa driver, but am only able to get 640x480 resolution. The monitor is an LG L1720P.

I turned off kernel mode setting (via /etc/modprobe.d/i915-kms.conf), and modified xorg.conf -- added Modeline entries (from gtf) and
additional Mode lines to try to force resolution. Relevant portions of xorg.conf, dmesg and Xorg.0.log are shown below.

With Gnome 2.28 it doesn't occurs. Then ii seems a gnome 2.3 problem.

Hardware :: High-resolution Video With 2 MB Graphics Card- Play 480p Video ?

Jun 24, 2010

I've been playing around with Damn Small Linux 4.4.10 on my Dell Inspiron 3000 laptop for quite a while now, and this is the first time I've been downright stumped. To make a long story short, I'm trying to play 480p video on a machine with a 233 MHz Pentium processor, 112 MB of ram, and a Neomagic MagicGraph 128XD graphics card (NM2160). Crazy? Maybe, but I don't think so. I'm using MPlayer set to Xv mode with the XFree86 4.3.0 server, and so far, I've been able to get it to play 360p mpegs with minimal stuttering. However, MPlayer crashes with 480p. This is because the 128XD only has 2 MB of memory, which, after the 1024x768x16 screen takes its share, doesn't leave enough room for a 640x480 overlay.

The creators of MPlayer are aware of this limitation, and suggest adding the following line to my XF86Config file: Option "OverlayMem" "829440"

As I understand it, this is supposed to extend the video card's frame buffer into system memory, thus allowing the higher resolution video to play. However, it doesn't work, based on this output from my XFree86 log file: cannot reserve 829440 bytes for overlay...

Some other suspicious-looking lines from the log file:
