Login Screen Size - Mint Xfce 19

Post by milasx » Wed Jul 11, 2018 6:03 am

Hello,

I am running Mint 19 with the proprietary Nvidia driver. After the screen locks up the login screen jumps to a lower resolution. The initial login screen has the right resolution and when logged (back) in the screen goes to the right resolution.
Is there a setting that I can use to keep the same higher resolution for when the screen locks up?

Thanks!

I am looking at this.

I will try later and hopefully it will be fixed.

It actually did not work. Still at first login the screen is good. Then after a screen lock the resolution decreases.
Any ideas?

Interestingly if I switch user the second user ends up with a small resolution.

I wonder if this is caused by the fact that I am disabling MSI in my NVidia driver?

Code: Select all

NVreg_EnableMSI=0

I found this info in another forum.

I will try to enable ACPI.

i been using nvidia since the beginning of my linux experience and never heard of disabling msi or the advantages it would offer. seems you/re trying the hit and miss trial and error but usually the simplest action would be your solution. uninstall nvidia and re-install apt remove --purge nvidia* reboot and install nvidia from driver manager

i'm using xfce with nvidia-340 but i don't see any change in resolution in login screen

I meant I tried ACPI. I will try a re-install as you suggest.

Thanks!

Hi! I have the same problem. Did you manage to set the correct resolution on the lock screen?
