adjust screensize
« on: December 28, 2009, 03:59:15 pm »
Hey Folks,

I connected my machine to my Denon AV 4306 (DVI to HDMI) and the denon to my Epson projector (by HDMI). My Epson does 720 x 1280 pixels. When I take 720p in my AV-Wizzard, the screen is still to big and does not fit on the projector. Even when I run a regular ubuntu, it recognice 720p but the screen doesn't fit. Any Idea how I can change or adjust the screensize?

read http://wiki.linuxmce.org/index.php/Custom_Display_Resolutions and set the useEDID directive to true and use the ugly hack to prevent /usr/pluto/bin/Xconfigure.sh  to change the xorg.conf file.

Thanks, I changed the resolution, but then I recognised that this doesn't solve my problem because the align was not right then.

I solved that problem when I followed the wiki solving another problem - I had microscopic unreadable fonts in KDE. Following the instructions there was solving my screensize problem also....

Thanks again for supporting newbees like me...
