Resolved: VMWare how to change screen resolution CentOS or Fedora guest
location: linuxquestions.com - date: November 9, 2008
I just built a CentOS 5.2 VM using VMWare Workstation running on Ubuntu 7.10. I installed VMWare tools from the Workstation menu. However, I was stuck with 640x480 or 800x600 screen resolutions. I then built a Fedora 9 VM. It shows me higher resolutions however, it will not run at more than 800x600.
This has not been an issue with Ubuntu, Kubuntu or various Windows VMs I have built. After some researching I came across a post on the VMWare community. It asked 2 questions:
Did you install VMWare Tools? (yes I did)
Did you CONFIGURE VMWare Tools? (well, no I did not)
I ran the configuration script as root using the following command
How to remove black bars (change screen position) on TV display using xrandr?
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 24, 2012
I have an old laptop connected to a CRT TV using an S-Video cable. However, there appear black bars on the left, right, top, and bottom sides of the TV. Using Windows, I removed these black bars by using the Intel TV Wizard to zoom in the display and adjust the vertical/horizontal positions of the screen so that the black bars disappear. Is there any way to do something similar to this using xrandr in Ubuntu? I've tried using the --scale option, but this does something different.
Change screen brightness with keyboard hotkeys
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 18, 2012
I have been unable to change the screen brightness using my laptop's hotkeys (Fn +F4/F5) since Ubuntu 11.04. I have now upgraded to 12.04 and the problem persists. Other hotkeys such as those for volume, wifi, and suspend all work fine, just not for the brightness. I'm using an Asus G1. I've noticed others have this problem as well with other brands of laptops too. Has anyone solved this?

Change Screen Resolution From Within The Terminal

Posted this on Linux Mint forums also
Recently I have changed my screen resolution, and well it didn't turn out to well. My computer boots up fine and everything and once logged into X it does not shut down but it shows a screen where everything is distorted and overlapped. That means I can not see how to change the resolution back to what it originally was. Is there a way to do this while Grub is loading, and or/ is there a way to change the resolution via terminal? If you need to know what my resolution was before it was
Also if you need to know the distro it is

How do I change screen brightness from a terminal?
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: May 21, 2011
I'm running Ubuntu 11.04 with the Gnome Classic (No effects) display manager. My laptop's brightness keys work. However, when I boot or resume from suspend when using the integrated Intel graphics card the display brightness is turned all the way down, and I have to turn up the brightness using the brightness function keys so I that can see the display. I'd like to automate this by putting a terminal command in a script so I can automatically turn up the screen brightness when the system boots.
I've tried the following commands with no success:
What ever I echo in the brightness file has no effect on the screen brightness, and nothing changes in the /sys/class/backlight/acpi_video0/brightness or actual_brightness files. The contents of these files do change, however, if I change the brightness using the keyboard function keys.
setpci -s 00:02.0 F4.B=10
Some posts have suggested this command might work, but
How to Change Screen Resolution, Command Line
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 6, 2013
I recently installed Slackware Linux 14.0 on a desktop. Partway through the boot sequence, the screen resolution jumps from what I assume is VGA=normal (in the lilo.conf file) to the highest possible resolution. The text shrinks to the equivalent of six point font on paper, making it quite difficult to read. I will not be using any X-windows environments. I use the computer solely for computation and work entirely from the command line. So, how do I switch the screen resolution or the font size for the command line?
