    Default How to change resolution of login screen on system boot

    I am using gnome and nvidia close source driver. After I change resolution of desktop by nvidia-settings. The login screen on boot becomes very big.

    Thanks

    run the nvidia-settings tool as root and set the preferred resolution (you can even select the save configuration to x.org file)
    Code:
    gnomesu nvidia-settings

    I am using 4K screen. I adjusted resolution from 4K to 1080, and then do scaling, the size of screen looks well and login screen on lock screen looks well. But login screen on boot looks very big.

    Try
    yast > boot loader > kernel parameters> console resolution > and if there is not your solution, put that closest to yours > OK

    you might need to select export settings to xorg file and put
    Code:
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    as the nvidia-settings tool has the file name and path to xorg.conf blank

    to make things clear you are referring to the gdm login screen resolution right not the boot screen resolution
    to change the boot screen resolution you need to go in yast -> boot loader and change your settings there

    better yet tell us are you referring to the login screen which is configurable via xorg.conf (the nvidia-settings) or the boot screen which can be set in yast?

    I am sure I referring login screen. The login screen comes out after I wake up locked screen looks in well size. But login screen displayed after boot process looks very big.

    Thanks

    this should be configurable with the nvidia-settings tool
    I remember a few years back when I was still using a 17'' crt I used 1024x768 for my desktop but the login screen was maxed out at I think was 1600X1200
    the solution is simple run the nvidia-settings tool as root (with gnomesu or xdg-su -c) at the resolution tab select the preferred resolution then hit the save configuration to xorg file button and put
    Code:
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf
    as the file name
    or do it manually by editing (and creating) /etc/X11/xorg.conf or better yet using the new standard in the directory
    /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ create the file 10-monitor.conf
    Code:
    gnomesu gedit /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-monitor.conf
    and paste this text in it
    Code:
    Section "Monitor"
        Identifier             "Monitor0"
    EndSection
    
    Section "Device"
        Identifier             "Device0"
        Driver                 "vesa" #Choose the driver used for this monitor
    EndSection
    
    Section "Screen"
        Identifier             "Screen0"  #Collapse Monitor and Device section to Screen section
        Device                 "Device0"
        Monitor                "Monitor0"
        DefaultDepth           24 #Choose the depth (16||24)
        SubSection             "Display"
            Depth              24
            Modes              "1920x1080_65.00" #Choose the resolution
        EndSubSection
    EndSection
    just don't forget to set the proper resolution and refresh rate or you might have issues
    I'll say it again you're better off using the nvidia-settings tool and exporting the xorg file then manually editing /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/10-monitor.conf

    Caution: this will *disable* the nvidia driver!

    You need to use:
    Code:
    Driver "nvidia"
    It's probably better to let nvidia-settings generate the file, if you make a mistake you may not even get a graphical system anymore.

    I found that file with a google search I knew the /etc/X11/xorg.conf file has been depreciated with the /etc/X11/xorg.conf.d/ directory and that file was at the top of a google search
