So it happen that i have a netbook with ubuntu 12.10 installed. My netbook's resolution is 1024x600 so for example i run a game which has 800x600 resolution supported but not my native one so when i apply that resolution i see black bars appearing on both sides of the screen. Why doesnt it strech to fill up the screen? I noticed that when i am connected to an external moniter through a vga port and do the same there it streches to fill up the whole screen so is there any solution to this?
