Ubuntu Multimedia :: Change To Display Resolution In Presentation Mode?

Jun 2, 2010

I am on Lucid 10.04 with Nvidia 9600m (v195.36.24) My TV is 1280x720, my Laptop is 1600x900 (Closest setting to the TV is 1360x768 ). I plug my laptop to my tv via an HDMI cable. I press F1 to get into my presentation mode, and the tv shows most of the desktop, but not all of it. Is there any way to conveniently make it so it automatically sets it to 1280x720?

General :: Change Screen Resolution To A Unsupported Mode?

May 8, 2011

I just installed Opensuse 11.4 (gnome) in a new desktop but the screen resolution is 1360x768 60hz and this is not listed in monitor settings, so the monitor keeps displaying "not optimized mode" message. In order to use the correct resolution, I used these two commands:xrandr --newmode "1360x768_60.00" 84.75 1360 1432 1568 1776 768 771 781 798 -hsync +vsyncxrandr --addmode VGA1 "1360x768_60.00"it worked, but every time the computer is restarted, I must run this command again. So I think "I just have to create a script in the initialization!". It works, every time the computer is started, there is no need to run the commands again. But when program enters in full screen, the resolution is "lost" and the monitor message is displayed again.

Ubuntu Servers :: Change The Display Resolution Version 9?

Jun 1, 2010

Would someone please point me in the direction of how to change the display resolution on Ubuntu server version 9? I am talking about the actual VGA port on the back of the server. I am NOT talking about anything related to XWindows or a SSH session. This is a text based display. When I installed Ubuntu Server 9 on my server I picked a larger display resolution than I really want.

Debian Hardware :: Can't Change Resolution Or Set Dual Display

Jul 4, 2014

I have wheezy installed on my laptop with XFCE 4.8 and kernel 3.14 from backports. The laptop uses Nivida-optimus:

Code: Select all00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Haswell Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 06)
01:00.0 3D controller: NVIDIA Corporation Device 1292 (rev a1)

I installed the proprietary bumblebee-nvidia (version 3.2.1) as per the instructions in URL...The problem is that when I connect a monitor to the laptop, the image is duplicated with only part of the screen showing on the second monitor. The monitor itself is not detected in the display settings or arandr / xrandr, so I can't change the resolution or set dual display, etc. Here is the output of xrandr:

Code: Select all$ xrandr
xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 1920 x 1080, current 1920 x 1080, maximum 1920 x 1080

Hardware :: Change Display Resolution So It Stays Changed In Suse 11.3?

Nov 2, 2010

(Video card is a nothing special Nvidia)

I want to change the default resolution of 1280x1024 to 1024x768. Setting at boot using the space bar or the KDE display (personal settings) does not survive the next boot. In yast or yast2, hardware, there is no monitor selection (something wrong here?).

Using root, run level 3, the command sax2 --vesa 1024x768 does nothing.
or sax2 -m 0=fbdev does nothing.

I had no problem with previous suse releases. What am I missing?

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Add 320x200x8 Resolution/Mode To Xorg.conf?

Oct 1, 2010

I am trying to run using WINE. It has a platinum rating on the site, and runs perfectly on my laptop.on my desktop it doesn't seem to run at all.The screen goes black,then brings me back to the desktop. I manually ran the WINE command in the terminal, and it produced the error "err11settings:X11DRV_ChangeDisplaySettingsE x No matching mode found 320x200x8 @0! (XRandR)". The laptop and desktop are both running the same version of WINE (1.3.3) and have similar Nvidia cards (laptop has a mobile 9600, desktop has a 9800). I found a bug report on this exact issue on the WINE website (I'll paste a link), and they mention that the solution is simply to add the 320x200x8 resolution mode to Xorg.conf.

I've tried generating the line that I may need with a web-based modeline calculator, referenced on another thread, but it caused my system to fail booting. Luckily, I backed up xorg.conf before making changes and restored the old one via recovery mode. Here's the link to the calculator, I may just be using it wrong: [URL]

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Override Nvidia's Display Resolution Selection

Jul 27, 2010

Recently I encountered a problem with a triple-monitor setup where the EDID was rejected by the nvidia driver (version 195.36.0, claiming that the EDID checksum was invalid. The maximum resolution that the driver would allow was 640x480. Searching through the X logs (/var/log/Xorg.0.log), I found the following message:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Cannot Display This Video Mode After Grub Screen

May 29, 2011

I use natty 64 bit. I installed a HD 4870. Installed the drivers according to instruction on [URL]. I ran aticonfig --initial. Still I get "Cannot Display This video Mode" after the grub screen, during boot up. Monitor preferences applet doesn't seem to work, either - it won't detect the monitor parameters EDID thing.

When I try to open the Catalyst Control Centre I get:

Ubuntu :: Odd Resolution - Monitor After Switched It To TV Mode Then Back To PC Mode

Feb 8, 2011

When I first installed ubuntu 10.10, the display was for some reason tinted green and shifted a few inches to the right. After experimenting with the resolution preferences, I eventually got it to a large resolution (1280x720 ... or something like that) yet is was quite blurry. I found out that the problem was with my monitor after I switched it to TV mode, then back to PC mode. It became perfectly clear! All I had to do then was adjust the screen positioning by shifting it left a bit.

Even though I have made the resolution I figured out to be default, whenever I turn the PC on after shutting down, it goes back to the "green-and-to-the-side" mode. :/ Ain't really a big problem, until I tried to fiddle with the resolution preferences s'more.

Somehow, I have set it to be twice as wide of the maximum my monitor can display, went back to being green tinted for some reason, and is completely shifted left (yet the right side is still visible) This means that I cannot see what is going on the left side, and cannot adjust the resolution preferences, nor can I click blindly cuz the border is only around my visible side of the screen. Now it is stuck like this.

I've researched many hours and eventually found the terminal command for the resolution preferences. it popped up on the visible side. Although it was to no avail cuz I HAVE TRIED EVERY SETTING AND OPTION and absolutely nothing changed. I assume a system restore would simply revert it back to the previous satisfactory settings, but the thing is I want to FIX it. I am new to this terminal stuff, so I want to learn it and all that. To put it simply, here's what I want:

Learn how to manually adjust resolution without depending on a simple dialog box. Make the satisfactory resolution default and consistent through turning it on and off. Link that could teach me the essential commands, all this googling is stressful. D:

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Screen Tearing After Resolution Change?

May 15, 2011

After upgrading to 11.04, my screen resolution was reset to 1024x768. As the native resolution for my monitor is 1920x1080, I went to reset that. The resolution didn't exist in the Monitors applications, so I did the following:

kane@Griffin:~$ cvt 1920 1080 60
# 1920x1080 59.96 Hz (CVT 2.07M9) hsync: 67.16 kHz; pclk: 173.00 MHz
Modeline "1920x1080_60.00" 173.00 1920 2048 2248 2576 1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync


The monitor adjust, but most of the screen shows tearing and doesn't update correctly. Hard to explain, so I attached a screenshot at 1024x768, working normally, and 1920x1080, fubar. I've cropped these images to get them to fit the forum limitations, but they still show the issue.

My monitor is an LG Flatron W2253TQ, my graphics card is an ATI Radeon HD 4650, although the manufacturer is Biostar. I'm using the default free drivers.

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.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: How To Make Video Out Of Impress Presentation

Apr 24, 2010

Let's say you have a presentation made in OO.o Impress and you have an audio record of the speaker, and you want to combine these two together into a nice video consisting basically of the presentation slides and the speaker's voice - how would you do it?

Would you export the presentation to flash (.swf file), then import it in a video editor (if so. which one?)?

Or would you rather export slides to individual pictures and import them one by one to a video editor (again, which one?)?

Quite annoying.I am able to work around this by auto-hiding the panel, but would rather be ableo simply run the presentation without having to do so. I can't find anything in OO's settings to resolve this

Debian Multimedia :: Change Screen Resolution For One User On Terminal

Jul 13, 2015

I am wanting to try to change my normal user (bbq) to a different screen size within my secondary user (lfs). I was wondering how one would do that.

This happened when OpenClonk changed my screen resolution and when i changed it back my screen blacked out (and me being the idiot save it).

Debian 8 GNOME

Also (a bit unrelated) could a video card problem cause a user to log out? I have been having some severe problems with my monitor and I am thinking it is th video card. Sometimes when I am starting a program my monitor will lose connection to my computer (HDMI signal not found) and I will either have to wait a few seconds and it will turn on or it will just stay blacked out.

Ubuntu Multimedia :: Can't Change Primary Display With Ati Ccc Or Xorg.config?

Apr 8, 2011

I have google'd the crap out of this and have yet to find a "solved" forum. I currently have 2 sapphire ati 5770's in xfire. I also have two monitors. My (preferred) primary display has a dvi input and my other display is hdmi. I have them both plugged into only one of the cards. For some reason it keeps setting the hdmi display as the primary. And I want them in extended view. The ATI CCC suite does not support changing the primary monitor and I have tinkered with the xconfig but I do not really know what I am doing, so I have ultimately not been successful. here is my xorg.config file.

Section "ServerLayout"
Identifier "aticonfig Layout"
Screen 0 "aticonfig-Screen[0]-0" 0 0
