Display Configuration: need 16:9 ratios for Laptop

I am using 13.2 with KDE and am a new Suse user. I am running on a 14" laptop.

The screen resolution supports up to 1920x1080 and the Display Configuration has this configuration has the default.

I would like to select a lower resolution because this resolution is difficult to read on such a small screen.

The other, smaller resolutions available in the Display Configuration are not 16:9 ratios, so they will not use the whole display.

Does anyone know of a way to add other 16:9 ratios, such as 1280x720 or 1664x936, etc.?

With much thanks,


While it is possible to manually configure lower display resolutions, it is not advisable since you will lose clarity. Instead, you should increase icon and font size. Sometimes, incorrect sizing occurs because the DPI setting is wrong or not reported correctly. Which DE are you using? Which graphics driver?

I’m using KDE and the graphics driver (from lspci) is: 00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation Crystal Well Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 08)

That’s a good suggestion about changing font and icon sizes.

It would be useful to know what is reported by the following command

xdpyinfo | grep resolution

To change the KDE desktop DPI setting

Configure Desktop (System Settings) > Application Appearance > Fonts, enable ‘Force fonts DPI’ and adjust as required
