Setting Extra Monitor Resolutions [SOLVED]

Postby wm_domino on Fri Apr 13, 2012 12:15 pm

i have a related issue i was hoping i could get some help with:

mint xfce debian (not the release from this week, the 1 prior) : one of the issues for me was that all resolutions that were NOT 1600x1200 forced the bottom menu bar off screen.

could someone please give me the proper terminal command to restore this?

i initially thought it was because i was using a 20" widescreen monitor, but it was the same for a 19", 21" and 24" ... any suggestions would be great, tried the program for monitor settings i had to install to change on the previous (to this)version, worked fine before, but not this time, always the bottom bar is gone off screen and i'll be darned if i can find it by pushing the monitor frame up/down/left/right.

thanks in advance

[UPDATE] respin fixes this

I assume you're talking about 201109 ...
the previous (to this)version

... and that you updated to Update Pack 4, right?
one of the issues for me was that all resolutions that were NOT 1600x1200 forced the bottom menu bar off screen.

Could you please give us the output of:
Code: Select all
inxi -Gxc 0
xrandr

and i'll be darned if i can find it by pushing the monitor frame up/down/left/right.

I guess you mean the external monitor buttons, right?
