Screen Resolution at Login Screen

Screen Resolution at Login Screen

Postby userzero on Sun Jul 22, 2012 12:43 am

Hello,

My login screen looks like its at 1024x768 and has a stretched look to it when I add an mdm login theme from gnomelook.org. I was looking for 1920x1080 themes and assuming that's what I need but didn't see any specified as such. Where would I go to adjust the resolution settings for login screen to 1920x1080 like my desktop is currently? I've been poking around, looking at mdm config files but would like some solid advise before I start changing things around.

Thanks,

u0

Edit /etc/default/grub, look for GRUB_GFXMODE and uncomment and change to a value that suits your display/theme.

Format is widthxheightxcolour_depth mine is set to 1360x768x32

@xircon,
That only affects grub and to a smaller degree the framebuffer, before the display manager is loaded.

@userzero
What video driver are you using for the framebuffer and for Xorg? Try this code to find out:
Code: Select all
dmesg | grep fb
and
Code: Select all
dmesg | grep drm
Both will output short snippets of your kernel messages that u can post here.

Edit: Forgot one more thing: Do you have an /etc/X11/xorg.conf file? Or any file in /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory that pertains to the xorg driver you are using? You may need a modeline block in your xorg.conf file. See here for details.

That's not good...
Your kernel either doesn't have a framebuffer driver compiled in or as a module...or your system is set up not to use one. That pretty much means a blank console at ttys 1 thru 6.
The other grep was to help fish out any drm module in use for xorg. How you are able to have Xorg running almost surprises me....I expected the vesa driver at the very least but there's no mention of it......

Ok, I'll need one more thing, can you post the contents of /var/log/Xorg.0.log?

Re: Screen Resolution at Login Screen

Ok,

Seems you have the nvidia drm driver running at 1920 x 1080. It should already be accelerated, which is good.
I looked for the framebuffer driver, and you aren't running one, but that's ok if you don't use the consoles outside of your favorite DE.
What display manager do you have? mdm, gdm3, lightdm, kdm, or lxdm? I have mdm running on my setup and when changing from the default theme to a new one, I had to modify the theme to fit the resolution I was running at. If you have mdm, are you running the mint theme by any chance?

Hi titetanium,

Thanks again for taking the time to look at that long output. Yes, I'm running mdm with the default mint theme which seems to be fine resolution-wise. The only problem is when I try to add an mdm login theme from elsewhere (http://gnome-look.org/content/show.php/ ... ent=152611) I get the weird resolution and stretched look. So I'm trying to understand... I notice that when I log into say, run level 1 with no DE, the text is large. Is this because there is no frame buffer driver? If so, is there a tutorial that will help me to understand the issue and help me to install the necessary drivers? I consider this a hike up the learning curve and appreciate being pointed in the right direction.

I figured as much. Yes, you are correct that without a framebuffer driver, you get the standard 640x480 resolution until your nvidia drm drivers kicks in. At which point you get the correct resolution. To temporarily fix that would require adding vga=792 to your kernel line when booting.
To test it, reboot.
-When grub comes up, press any key to stop the timer.
-Highlight the kernel you want to boot, then press e.
-Scroll to the end of the kernel line and add "vga=792" and remove "splash" so it looks like this: "vga=792 quiet"
-Press f10 to boot

You should see a much smaller set of letters scrolling by. It won't be perfect but it will be close enough. This is temporary though. For a more permanent fix, edit /etc/default/grub and make the changes in the kernel default line.

As for the mdm theme, I had to modify the theme like you did. My resolution is 1366x768 which isn't a standard resolution. I had to take apart the theme and find the .jpg or png file. Open it in GIMP and expand the layer (not the image) to the desired size. Center the image in the resized layer. Fill in the colors in the borders, I usually match the background color of the image. Export the image to a .jpg or png file, making sure you add the size to the image name, like this: mdm_theme_1920x1080.jpg. Put the image into the theme folder and then install it into mdm. I used mdm setup to install the new theme. Test the theme using mdm flexiserver so you don't have to keep rebooting over and over to get your theme right. Once you're satisfied with your new theme and it looks good in the flexiserver, then you're done. Reboot and enjoy.

NOTES*: vga=792 is 1024x768-24, you can try vga=795 for a 1280x1024-24 resolution if your graphics cards supports it.

Great info! Also, thanks for the time saving tips with flexiserver. I'll try this out tomorrow and post the results.

Cheers,
