Re: Monitor resolutions

The info from these web pages shows the TV’s preferred resolution is only 1366x768 for the 26 inch screen, so any other resolution will be more blurry: https://www.lcd-compare.com/televiseur-THO26E90NH22-THOMSON-26E90NH22.htm https://translate.google.com/translate?hl=en&sl=fr&u=https://www.avcesar.c...

Re: Monitor resolutions

Use these commands and see if the picture is less blurry. This has to be obtained before the overscan is corrected: xrandr --newmode "1920x1080R" 138.50 1920 1968 2000 2080 1080 1083 1088 1111 +hsync -vsync xrandr --addmode HDMI-1 1920x1080R xrandr --output HDMI-1 --mode 1920x1080R The xvidtune -sho...

Re: No icon, in custom category in desktop menu

You should be able to use a custom icon. I do it all the time in my menus, but it's more complicated.

Re: Monitor resolutions

The highest resolution for the TV that doesn't cut off at the edges is 1360x768; 1960x1080 does cut off at the edges, and looks all blurry. Would you set the TV’s resolution to 1920x1080 and then post the output of xrandr and xvidtune -show . I want see if an interlaced mode is being used. If the m...

Re: Monitor resolutions

The TV is overscanning. In the TV's on-screen display (OSD) menu, turn off overscan mode by changing the input mode. Some TVs call it "Just Scan", "Full Pixel", "True Pixel", "Screen Fit", "1:1 Mode", "Native Mode", "Dot by Dot" or possibly something else. What is the brand and model number of the m...

Re: 19.1 and RTX2080 Ti issues

Did you try the 4.18 kernel available in the Update Manager?

I just checked on the Nvidia website and the 410.93 driver is the newest released driver.

Use this command to check what version of gcc was used to compile the 4.20 kernel: cat /proc/version

Re: NVIDIA drivers (eventually) hard-lock Cinnamon/system when enabled

I would first suggest disabling any applets and reinstall the Nvidia-340.10 7 driver. You can test this kernel parameter by editing the kernel command line. The effect will only last for one session. At the GRUB boot menu select the correct line but don’t press Enter. Press the “ E ” key to edit. If...
