Title: How to reset saved display desktop resolution 1920 x 1080 to lower setting
Post by: kjl on July 23, 2018, 06:25:33 pm
Had not booted peppermint 8 in a few weeks, started it up today and got a display message; no video input or unsupported format.
Had set the resolution to 1920 x 1080 through the display configuration.
The gpu card is a ati (amd) r92le, dvi, s-video, d-snub,; using d-snub, get a bios post screen then  no video input or unsupported format,
using dvi, no bios post then  no video input after peppermint 8 selection options.
At times the display will render at 480p but nothing will show on dvi and or d-snub.
My question is how do I reset the display to default ? thanks to any guidance on this.

These instructions apply to Peppermint 7 and 8 .. they do NOT apply to Peppermint 9

Saved settings in lxrandr are saved in an autostart file located at:-

~/.config/autostart/lxrandr-autostart.desktop

This file doesn't exist until you save some settings in "Monitor Settings", so to go back to defaults, simply delete that file
Code: [Select]
rm -v ~/.config/autostart/lxrandr-autostart.desktop
then either log off/on, or reboot.
