How to change refresh rate and scaling?

Post by freshtamatic » Thu Nov 08, 2018 2:15 pm

I'm using an external monitor. It doesn't like 60Hz, but plays fine on 50Hz. I went to the displays setting but can not find anywhere to change the refresh rate.
Also, Is there a way to increase text scaling as the letters are very small.
Thanks.

There is a good video on creating custom video modes with xrandr here: https://youtu.be/MScLD8dFNwk
