Yes, I was going to ask you about that (permanence). Applied commands as instructed, next boot-up will tell.

Thanks again.

Re: Monitor raster

roblm:

The 1280x720 works perfectly.
Thank you for solving this vexing problem for me. You should know that although this is about the third time I have asked the question, it is the first time I got an answer. Apparently this subject is a lot more esoteric than I ever imagined.

Thank you again.

Re: Monitor raster

roblm: I ran those commands, found the new option in "display" and selected it. While everything displayed in the proper proportions, this degree of resolution is far beyond what that poor little 32-bit processor can handle..it was completely overwhelmed, elements in the tray disappeared, "menu" ren...

Re: Monitor raster

roblm: No, What I mean is that the aspect ratio of the monitor is wider than the aspect ratio of the computer's video output. The monitor wants to display the video edge-to-edge. If the monitor used the horizontal as a reference, the vertical would need to extend beyond the top and bottom of the scr...

Monitor raster [Solved]

Hi All:

I need to "pull in" the width of the display on my monitor. The raster fills the monitor screen, but everything looks stretched out. If I could set the width manually, I could fix this. Or, someone has an other idea?

Thanks.

Copy File Problem-SOLVED

Hi All: I am creating a new 19.1 install on an old 32 bit machine. Nothing much there. Yet, when I went to download the VPN software, lo and behold, I found that they had eliminated the 32 bit version. Well, O.K, I'll just transfer the files from another identical install. I transferred the files to...

Re: How to "construct" a desktop

AZgl1500:

Wow! Catfish seems to work..I found the old desktop! Now the question is:

I swapped out those the files into "Desktop" (old Desktop into present Desktop). But...the intermediate desktop I created a few days ago is still there!

What other files do I need to (also) swap?

Thanks

The other systems part of this happened decades ago. None of your other suggestions have happened.

deepakdeshp:
Can't find it there, either.

I'll try that and report.

Thanks.

Oh, yeah. Checked them a long time ago. They are as gone as gone can be. Unless there is another esoteric place I don't yet know of, they are trés fini.

Re: How to "construct" a desktop

smurphos: There's no reason the files stored on the desktop should be any more at risk that files stored anywhere else. My point exactly. There is no reason they should disappear, but they do , and it is a bit on the frustrating side. The power failure was on of those half-second switch the feeder a...

How to "construct" a desktop

Hi All: A few days ago all my desktop icons disappeared, except the ones that were switched on in "settings" . I made a post about it, but so far, no one has come up with a solution. I then tried a "solution I discovered using "testdisk", but that just filled out my drive to the end and made the sys...

If it is a paid system, (for example) they will trash your data if you don't pay, it could also be lost, spied on or compromised in some other fashion. I cannot u...

Or, are there other mechanisms within the backup system that protect the backup...

Re: Disappearing Desktop

blueocean: The bottom panel with "menu", desktops, etc. remains intact. Only four icons are visible: "computer". "home", "network" and "trash". All other icons are gone.

Disappearing Desktop

Hi All:

My desktop disappeared. gone except for the "stock" icons. I posted to ask if there is a duplicate somewhere, or some other solution, but apparently the answer is no.

So, what would be the best solution for file recovery? Perhaps G-Parted? Another idea? A better idea?

Thanks.
