If you have "overscanning" enabled on your TV you will need to disable it. Otherwise sometimes there is a zoom feature. TVs use it to help make DVDs look better on your TV but it does mess up desktops. I had the same problem on my Toshiba and my mint/Kodi mediaserver. Try looking in the setting for Overscan or zoom and see if that helps.

A major convenience upgrade would be to use a background script, automatically setting the resolution per application, while you can set different resolutions for different (multiple) applications at once. That is exactly what the script below does. An example of a default resolution of 1680x1050: Running gedit, automatically changing to 640x480: ...

@Takkat is spot-on. The problem is the version of X Server on the GUEST in relation to what the HOST's version of Virtualbox will support in order to get full-screen. You can get the version of X Server with X -version. Run this on the GUEST to see which version is installed. Of note, there is one - rather than two --. Also, this command outputs to stderr ...

Well, just in case anyone else comes across this exact problem, I am copying and pasting the "solution" that I also mentioned in the discussion above so that it's not so easy to miss. This Sony has a hardware switch to go to "Stamina Mode". In that mode, the machine doesn't use the nvidia but instead the Intel graphics chip on the motherboard. When I ...

RandR is an extension to the X11 server that is used to communicate the configuration of outputs between the server's clients (= applications) and the graphics driver. Most applications don't actually speak the protocol themselves, but instead use a library called libXrandR. FakeXRandR replaces this library with one that still asks the graphics driver for ...

You said: sudo cp b43_updated.zip /lib/firmware/b43 and then sudo modprobe -rv b43 and sudo modprobe -v b43 I believe you need to unzip the file first. Please try: cd ~/Desktop unzip b43_updated.zip It extracts into its own folder b43. Continue: sudo cp b43/* /lib/firmware/b43 sudo modprobe -r b43 && sudo modprobe b43 It may take a ...

The dataflex KB should provide the instructions that you require. If they don't work it's a support issue with DataAccess. TERMINFO must be set in addition to ROWS and COLS.

I had this problem with Ubuntu 12.04 on my netbook (1024x600 screen). I "solved it" (really worked around it) by making sure that all windows start out maximized. This helps, because maximized windows that are bigger than the screen, show the scroll bars. And, if you can access the scroll bars, you can thereby reach all parts of the window. To do this, ...
