After a study, I figured it out that the system switch the video from grub (GRUB_GFXLOAD) -> kernel (GRUB_GFXPAYLOAD_LINUX) -> drm (?) -> xserver (xrandr/xorg.conf/lightdm.conf) For drm part, it is set using video= kernel command line. I solved my problem by adding video=eDP-1:1920x1080 in kernel command line.

I created a bash script that changes the resolution to fullHD before it starts the application (in this examle Android Studio) and changes it back to 3200x1800 when the application quits: sudo nano /usr/local/bin/studio Enter this script: #!/bin/bash xrandr -s 1920x1080 /usr/share/android-studio/data/bin/studio.sh xrandr -s 3200x1800 and give it ...

The proprietary Nvidia drivers included in 14.04 do not support the newer GeForce 750/750Ti. Solution 1 (the easier one): PPA Open a terminal Add the repository with the driver version that supports the 750Ti: https://launchpad.net/~xorg-edgers/+archive/ubuntu/ppa sudo apt-add-repository ppa:xorg-edgers/ppa Update your software lists and software: sudo ...

You will want to try ArandR, which is a front-end for xrandr. Once you get the screen set up the way you like it, you can "save" the parameters to a shell script (.sh) file. You can then make the script execute at startup. http://www.ubuntugeek.com/arandr-a-simple-visual-front-end-for-xrandr.html You can also look for autorandr ...

If anyone is still struggling with this, I tried everything I could find with no luck (I put the command line into so many files I lost count). In the end I found an easy solution through trial and error and I would try it first before all the other stuff. Open a terminal and test the xrandr command (as have been posted by others). I am using Lubuntu on an ...

It's not possible. The ratio of 2500x1600 is 1.5625 and your 1024x768 ratio is 1.1/3 or 1.33333. A typical desktop at 1366x768 is 1.77865 and 1200x740 is 1.62162. The desktop backgrounds only appear to fit perfectly but they actually are either using the scale or the zoom setting. My best guess is that the zoom setting is the one used. You can see in this ...

OMG. It looks like it was the monitor all along? I finally gave up, reinstalled Windows 8, and when that could not get the desired resolution either, I swapped the monitor for an identical model - et voila, it works! I haven't tried is with Ubuntu again, because it is getting late (I am three days into this project), but there is a good chance the stupid ...

While it's correct that you cannot get more than 1024x768 on the laptop's screen, it really has to be mentioned that you can get a much higher resolution if you connect to an external monitor simply using a VGA cable. E.g. I am on 1920x1080 right now on an X60; To further back this up, check the specs for the GMA950 graphics chipset that X60 comes with ...

I got the same error on my netbook. It seems to me that this error is related with https://bugs.winehq.org/show_bug.cgi?id=33407 I built wine with a patch attached to that bug. This helps me but I found out that my netbook (Atom N570, 1Gb RAM) is too slow :) Nevertheless you can try. Download a build script from ...

We can't magically add more information to an image than there is. The source image is too tiny to allow much further scaling without making the inherent artifacts too obvious: Source image linearly scaled to 500% However there is a somewhat better scale filter in the G'Mic plugin (install gimp-gmic ) then G'Mic > Repair > Upscale (diffusion): G'Mic ...

Open the file in GIMP. In the menu bar at the top, select Image > Scale Image. I suggest you leave the aspect ratio locked. Change the pixel dimension for, for instance, the height to whatever you desire. Save and close GIMP. Caution: the original image is just 165x180 pixels. Scaling up will show somewhat poor quality as you cannot recover the detail that ...

In order to set the screen resolution to 1440x900, open VirtualBox settings (Ctrl+G), select Display and change Maximum Guest Screen Size to Hint. Then put the desired resolution in the boxes and click OK. However this will change the screen resolution for all your Virtualbox guests.

I just resolved the problem Setting>> Appearance>> Fonts>> then change the font size down to 9 or until you can see the buttons. Its annoying because you can't make the screen smaller by dragging the top of the window down to make a smaller box, then drag the whole box upwards and scroll down to see the buttons; because it wont or give you the option to. ...

This may have already been resolved but I had this issue and fixed it very simply, I just updated VirtualBox to the latest version then re-installed the guest additions.

Exactly which model of X800 do you own? This Link states that for the "Pro" variant the maximum resolution is "1600x1200" which falls short of the HDTV's expected 1080p resolution of 1920x1080. Different models have different maximum resolutions so specifying the exact model you own and also whether it is AGP, PCI, or PCIe will help as well.

I had a similar problem after installing proprietary drivers for my ATI Mobility Radeon 4570 HD. It was the same with fglrx, fglrx-updates, fglrx-amdcce and fglrx-amdcce-updates. Removing all of them, resultion came back as before. It should be noted that they are in conflict, so only one package at time should be installed. I tried to do so, but the problem ...

Try this in your current terminal: stty size If you want to know the resolution of another terminal use this: stty -F /dev/tty1 size Or for an ssh session: stty -F /dev/pts/1 size Another option is to use a tool called resize: resize Sample output: COLUMNS=146; LINES=43; export COLUMNS LINES;

Can you clarify that following questions: Did you have installed the NVIDIA card after installing Ubuntu, e.g This card was not present when you were installing Ubuntu? Did you have removed or disabled and then re-installed the card after installing Ubuntu?

No answer, just the same problem. Only getting 640 x 480 as a tiny little screen in the center of the monitor. Ubuntu is the only linux I have installed which won't display properly. Looking at the list of properly displaying ones I see Debian, Antergos, Solydx, and Mageia. Question is what would prevent Ubuntu from equalling these other Linux variants? ...

Check that you have the restricted driver installed for your system. Go to settings and click on Restricted drivers and select one of the options for your Nvidia card. I have a similar card and found the recommended and tested driver (nvidia-331 I belive) worked well.

You can either use the xrandr command-line tool this shows you the names of different outputs available on your system (LVDS, VGA-0, etc.) and resolutions available on each. sudo su xrandr Or You can direct xrandr to set a different resolution using the following command sudo su xrandr --output VGA --mode 800×600 --rate 75 Due to buggy hardware or ...

And suddently it hit me, scaling factor! I set my scaling-factor to 1 which it fixes: gsettings set org.gnome.desktop.interface scaling-factor 1 That fixed it! After that command, only my titles where still too big. But a reboot fixed that too.

Please open this file sudo gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf Find the section "device" and add this line to it Option"ModeValidation" "NoMaxPClkCheck" Now reboot and see if your resolutions are back

This will have to be done per browser. For Firefox, you can use addons like Default FullZoom Level, so that websites automatically open at a higher zoom: For Google Chrome/Chromium, you can set the default zoom without any extensions. Go to the Settings, search for Page zoom, and change the value in the Web content section: . I too keep a 175% zoom for ...

You can press ctrl and the plus minus keys to zoom in and out, this is remembered per page in fire fox but in chrome you can set a default in settings. (175% for 1080p)

It's not obvious from your screenshot which browser you use, but in Chrome I zoom in to about 175% to have things "fit to size". How far you need to zoom is dependent on your resolution, size of the monitor, the website itself, etc.: If you use Firefox: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/font-size-and-zoom-increase-size-of-web-pages If you use Chrome: ...
