You need the --output line else the monitor will just sit on it's native resolution.

Unless Arandr will allow you to choose that resolution as it has now been defined and it will form part of the text to put into PcNetSpec's .sh script

Can you try the following command in a terminal window

Code: [Select]
xrandr --output VGA-1 --mode 1680x1050

It should force the monitor to change

What are you running Peppermint on? / Re: Sony Vaio VGN-FZ19VN

That looks a nice Laptop  :)

For future reference
You need to encapsulate the terminal output with the Insert, Code # function.  For extra long outputs, please use the Spoiler, Sp function.  If youíre a Chromium Browser and/or a Google Chrome user, please don't combine these functions.  For some reason, they donít work well together with these browsers.  The formatting gets all goofed up.  Only use one or the other  ;).  These forum functions preserve the original format of the output.  This makes it easier for future visitors to relate to their own issues.  These functions are found in the forum editor, above the,  :-[ Embarrassed and  the :'( Cry emoticon respectively.  Use the Preview button to check how it'll look after you post it to forum.  I hope this helps  ;).

I have done it for you this time :)

Hi Slim,

I change absolutely nothing on the default install of Peppermint. Theming, scaling, positioning is spot on whether using a 14" Laptop or a behemoth 49" wide screen like Jason Evangelho does.

The OP is just be ultra ultra picky

This is every issue I have with the UI :
This is how the original desktop looks :
This how the desktop would look in accordance to the changes I proposed :

I take it it was taken on a widescreen monitor?  Is it that your mouse has to travel double the distance?  Whisker menu, you could bring the panel up in size, that'll raise the menu up in size too. Plus instead of having all your window buttons on the panel shown as names, you could change it to just icons. Just to unclutter your top panel a bit. Blimey I think it's amazing that Linux can actually produce itself on these over sized screens. I use a total of three panels as it works on my builds of Peppermint 10.

This is my setup - Slim - and it is a 34£ wide screen 344x1440 upscaled to be 5120x2160 - we were discussing it in a telegram and if you look at his images full screen you will notice very slight imperfections and icon spacing that he is bringing to the table.  Each screen he produces he tells you on the screen ( with writing) what he thinks is wrong. It is simply his perception and a lot of it is beyond our control.

One final request.  If after a couple of days you are ok that this is working as stated could you go back to the very first post you made click "Modify"  and put [Solved] at then end of the Subject line

That way - people who may have similar problems will know there is a solution in here.

To double down on this  - this will work on most Linux OS's as they are very generic Linux Commands or specific to the Nvidia drivers.  The only thing that will chang eis how you get the particular Linux Distro to run that script at start up.

you are right - it is over the top - but without knowing each step you took and without asking you to re-install the OS and try again - it is very difficult to diagnose and fix. For me at least.  What is causing your saved settings to be over written I do not know.

On my system - what you initially described just worked and until Nvidia messed up their drivers one day - I was not even aware we could do what we have just done.

excellent now we get it to auto run at start up

go to Menu > Settings and then click Default Applications for LXSession

The window will open and click on Autostart on the left - you should see this

just to the right you will see the +Add button and I have put in the box - start typing here

copy and past the following

Code: [Select]

please change zeb for the name you use to log in with

and then click the + Add bit

This should then run each time the system starts and hopefully fix your woes whilst we maybe find out the real reason it is happening.

Regards Zeb...

You're very kind and are your screens no longer mirroring and if you open nvidia-settings are the correct advanced boxes checked ?

a good check would be to reboot and manually run the script and does it fix it

Damn my typing - please edit the .sh file and change the + to a x on the bottom xrandr line so it reads 3840x0

Really sorry

my apologies

it should have started with sudo

Please try the chmod command again but using sudo at the beginning

This was a discussion we were having in Telegram and I have already stated that all his changes are just his perception.

I asked him to bring it here - in case anyone else agreed with these perceived slight imperfections.
