Thread: full screen monitor

  1. #1

    Default full screen monitor

    sorry to ask my question so naively, but I do not know any better way.

    I have installed openSUSE 11.0 32 bit. On the monitor I have two black parts in the left and right sides. Please let me know how I can view the linux on the monitor in full screen.

    Regards,

    Yes, you should have a full screen desktop. But the information you're giving is a bit short.
    What kind of graphics card or onboard graphics do you have.
    Did you install a third party driver for the graphics?
    Resolution of your monitor, brand and type?
    The more info, the better we can assist you to get a smooth running openSUSE.

    BTW: Why not install 11.1, it can be downloaded for free from openSUSE.org

    You should get full screen on that monitor without installing any drivers at
    all.

    use Yast>Hardware>Graphics & monitor to see if you can get a better
    resolution.

    Also if running KDE in the menu there are "Personal Settings" or "Desktop
    Settings" here you can change your settings for the desktop resolution.


    However if you want full use of your graphic capabilities ( 3D acceleration,
    wobbly windows etc ) then you will need to install the Nvidia driver.

    Have a look here:

    And choose your poison.

    have you checked the settings on your monitor?

    if lcd check aspect ratio scaling
    if crt check display size adjustments
