Thread: Scaling Screen Not changing resolution

  1. #1

    Default Scaling Screen Not changing resolution

    Is it possible to scale my screen to a bigger size? I have a huge TV as a monitor and at 1920x1080 on linux it is a bit of a strain for my eyes. on windows they have a feature to do this.
    You can make the text and other items, such as icons, on your screen easier to see by making them larger. You can do this without changing the screen resolution of your monitor or laptop screen. This allows you to increase or decrease the size of text and other items on your screen while keeping your monitor or laptop set to its optimal resolution.
    If anyone knows please let me know thank you.

    This is kde4 and openSUSE 11.4 correct

    Take your time and look at the options available to you via right click to the desktop (it can vary depending on your choice of desktop activity)

    Also look at the kde system settings

    What graphics device? and have you installed the driver?

    If I use 'Folder View' desktop
    Right click > Folder View Settings > Display
    You should see settings for icon size

    or

    Select 'Activities' > New > Search and Launch
    The icons are bigger in this desktop
