I'm using Ubuntu 12.10 on an HP Pavilion DM3 laptop, with the
nvidia-experimental-310 driver activated. I often switch to a virtual console for certain work. While my laptop's monitor resolution is 1366x768, the closest reported by my video BIOS is 1360x768. I currently use the following lines in
/etc/default/grub to set this resolution:
This results in horizontal stretching and blurring of the console fonts, which is distracting and headache-inducing. Is there a way I can either set the correct resolution, or somehow force the console graphics not to stretch to fill the full 1366 pixels?
I'm reluctant to use the nouveau driver, since it's a bit of a performance hit on a laptop. I've also played around with the
uvesafb module, but it shows the same stretched/blurry graphics problems.
