nvtv messes up my screen settings, screen split in half
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 13, 2005
Nvtv messes up my screen settings and the fastest way back to a normal looking desktop is by right-clicking on the desktop and choosing configure desktop... change resolution, change back. As soon as I turn on the TV-out and the turn it off I get a magenta stripe on the right side of my screen and a corresponding stripe is cut off of the left side of my screen. So the whole screen is moved to the left. That's most moderate change I've gotten. After a while of clicking I ended up with the whole screen being split in quarters with a black cross at the center. Part of it was the normal desktop and part of it was the green, blurry, close-up image of grass, which is shown when the splash screen is not shown during boot.
My screen resolution is 1280 x 1024 px. I've tried to change it to 1280 x 960 px but the result was the same. My graphics card is an NVidia Riva TNT2 Ultra CT5823 (bought it for 4$, the piucture is great) and the tv chip is a Brooktree Bt869 Rev 2 (1:8A).
DISPLAY SCREEN SETTINGS Linux Mepis
location: linuxquestions.com - date: September 10, 2007
After several attempts I still can't resize my screen display. The display picture is much too large especially on Firefox. I've tried to reconfigure using the KDE control module system configuration settings for peripherals in order to change screen display size from 640 x 480 down to 320 x 240 but it keeps going back to 640x480.
I had no trouble resizing in Windows so I'm at a loss.
Lubuntu 14.10 Installed on Acer Aspire 3000 Screen Settings
location: linuxquestions.com - date: December 4, 2014
Every thing I open [files, folders or sites] are overhanging the edges, try as I might the resolution stays at 640x 400 I would like to set up to 1024X768.
I set the setting to automatic but it keeps going back to default 640x400.
Thanks for your help
PS-other than the above problem it seems like a great program
[SOLVED] PANIC! Screen settings restore
location: linuxquestions.com - date: August 1, 2009
I'm running Ubuntu 8.10, under Gnome. Though not at the moment, I'm having to type this through Windows!
I made the classic newbie mistake of choosing a screen resolution outside my monitor range. Now when Ubuntu starts, it allows me the login window, but after that I cannot see anything. I just get an "out of range" monitor message.
I assume I can go in under a Terminal and edit a file to restore my settings. Could someone tell me what that file is, please.
I did a Google search and found something telling me to do:
sudo dpkg-reconfigure xserver-xorg
... but this ran me through lots of keyboard settings (I probably buggered those up now, too!), then quit without allowing me to edit screen resolution settings.
It's actually the cycle settings I buggered up, not the resolution. Trying to fix a problem I selected 60Hz display cycle, but that is too low for my monitor, apparently.
Any help would be appreciated!
wrong screen settings
location: linuxquestions.com - date: July 2, 2015
Just installed new Slack and everything fine until switched to gui and then got scrambled screen. Tried xorgconfig, but got "command-not-found"; then xorgsetup, but all the screen choices didn't address the probable problem: should have super VGA, 800x600.
Tried many other commands and vi choices, but could never get to option for fix.
Any suggestions appreciated.
[SOLVED] Nvidia Screen settings not kept after reboot
location: linuxquestions.com - date: June 15, 2015
I am running LMDE2 on my machine.
It has a GTX 970 from nVidia
I had to manually install the drivers from nvidia.com as the repository versions were to old for this chip.
i am now running 346,72 and it worked well from day1.
But since a few days (after some apt-get update/upgrade stuff i guess) the settings i made are not kept after a reboot.
There is not too much configuration, mainly just the order of my 3 screens.
I can configure them in nvidia-settings and apply them. Then everything looks fine.
For the first time i had to save them to the x configuration file (/etc/X11/Xorg.conf).
I tried saving a new one of course and the file gets changed. But after a reboot, the display order would just fall back to default (even if the file content in xorg.conf stays like it should).
Full screen games change screen settings on duel monitor systems
location: linuxquestions.com - date: January 11, 2014
I'm using KDE. Anyone have some experience with Dbus or QDbus to suggest how I can begin to put together a qbus commandline to set my duel monitor settings to right after I've played a full-screen game? The full screen game removes all my nice duel monitor settings, leaving me with cloned monitors, so I'm hoping to write a qbus line that winks everything back to normal duality.
I don't know how to go about researching what causes this, so that I can fix it, but I'm reading about QBUS. Lets see: Qbus --> interface + service + object.... Ok, how about I use Python either 2.7 or 3.3 with a Qdbus binding...
KDE Locked Screen settings
location: ubuntuforums.com - date: November 14, 2011
I am running Ubuntu 11.10 with KDE Plasma Desktop, and every time the screen locks when I am still in KDE, it makes it so someone can't switch users after it has locked. Is there a way I can add a "switch user" button to the lock screen in KDE?

I run a forum for touchscreens if you look my name up in Youtube youll find it.
I will support Linux in everyday from this day forward. I am a new
[SOLVED] Screen resolution settings higher than 800x600 with Ubuntu 10.04 inside Virtual PC
location: linuxquestions.com - date: October 3, 2010
This is my first posting as a Linux Newbie. I have installed Ubuntu 10.04 inside of a MS Virtual PC on my Vista machine. Everything seems to work beautifully and is stable. However, I would like to use a resolution higher than the current maximum of 800x600. I've poked around on the web and have tried various tips. I tried using the xrandr options which added a higher resolution mode, but when I would try to set the output to that resolution, I would get an error message to the effect that I could not exceed the current maximum of 800x600.
I tried to cobble parameter values together and create an xorg.conf file, but every iteration seems to produce a bunch of colorful vertical bars within my Virtual PC window, and I would have to blow away that virtual PC setup and rebuild it (along with reinstalling Ubuntu).
As I said, 800x600 is not a show stopper, but I would like to take advantage of the real estate I have with my display. These "fifty-five year old&q
