Nouveau to Nvidia - screen resolution funny ....
« on: April 01, 2017, 03:34:49 pm »
Hi, I have installed Peppermint7, later on I have installed proper version of the Nvidia driver using system Software Manager.
I have an Asus laptop with 17" display, and resolution 1900x1200 rendering well in Nouveau after install the Peppermint7.
After installed Nvidia and reboot, fonts are in bigger size starting from multi-boot menu in Grub, and after login to desktop, for example Menu has bigger font size, in Chrome browser texts are bigger, but Firefox is rendering nicely small font size, in File Manager fonts and icons are bigger too, everything is looking bigger than should be in this resolution.
My question is : where is defined graphic resolution i Peppermint, maybe there is something missing to define for Nvidia driver, something what does work good for Nouveau ?
Thanks - Zibi

Menu > System Tools > NVIDIA X Server Settings

Go under the X Server Display Configuration tab and click on Advanced.  You'll see where you can set your resolution.
