Getting 1024x768 working on Asus 1005-HA

Postby vlamnire on Tue Aug 07, 2012 9:48 pm

Hi I'm running Linux Mint LXDE edition and I have installed jupiter-support-eee and jupiter but when I switch my resolution to 1024x768 I can't move my mouse to the bottom of the screen to open the menu and such. I was wondering if I could force my netbook to this resolution or do something with xrandr. In Windows 7 I can change to 1024x768 but in Linux I haven't seen much solutions. Right now I'm sitting on 1024x600

Linux Mint is funded by ads and donations.

Perhaps with xrandr --scale ?? Or perhaps adding a new mode using xrandr

I have the same problem. Tried settings with Jupiter and I can not get to the bottom of the screen. Same thing with xrandr,
using these lines from terminal re-sizes the screen but again the mouse will not move to the bottom.
xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode "1024x600" --scale "1x1"
xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode "1024x600" --scale "1x1.28" will get scale to 1024x768

I was running Peppermint until a few days ago and had the same problem, that particular fix did not work here though. It had to do with a patched xserver-common. I have found a lot of references to the problem but no solution. Did you manage to solve it?

There is a solution, I use the following for 1280x768:
Code: Select all
xrandr --output LVDS1 --panning 1280x768 --scale 1.25x1.28

You need to adapt to your needs. Works for Mint 15 MATE, probably for others too. You can follow the issue here, post #62 has the solution: https://bugs.launchpad.net/ubuntu/+sour ... bug/883319

Thank you so much, this actually looks better than the Jupiter display. There is an issue though, if I go back to 1224x600 I have to pan the screen off the sides.
