I have my resolution set to its native resolution 1680 X 1050 and it works but everything on the screen is so small. I would like everything to be a little larger. I then change it to the resolution that I want 1280 X 1024 and I get the black bars on the side. If I hit strech then it stays at 1280 X 1024 but is stretched out.
All I want to do is have the resolution set so everything is not so small and still not be stretched. I do this in windows all the time with 1280 X 1024 and it works great. Can this be done with suse?
More or less the resolution depend on the size of the screen you have even in windosz
How larger the screen how higher the resolution.But of course you can change the font size.And using the correct driver of
you,re graphic cart will bring also a better proportion
For fonts If you are using Kde 3.5x there is a dpi setting in the control center under appearance-fonts. I believe there is a similar setting in Gnome. There are references to dpi in xorg.conf as well. Mess with those at your own risk and I’ve never seen you before in my entire life.
Anyway, if you are using a CRT sometimes changing your screen resolution and also your refresh rate will sometimes change your screen geometry. I don’t know anything about LCDS That could account for the black area at the edges. Perhaps adjusting the monitor itself is the solution. As the other poster mentioned having the proper drivers for your graphics card and monitor is always a good idea.
