So, I just installed Linux on a new machine. An HP Spectre X360 15-DF003DX 2-in-1 laptop, 15.6" and 512GB SSD.
The video card is a GP108M (GeForce MX150) as far as Linux Hardware Information says so.
The video display for this is just wrong … The default display is 3840x2160 and in some cases the screens are all just way off.
In some cases the windows headers are just too big, the icons are too big, the lower left icon for the Applications is too big.
When I open up Chrome, Mozilla, or the header is way too small … I can’t even read it. In some applications, the lettering is too small.me
The overall experience just sucks so far. My last laptop it was perfect.
Is there some way I can fix the video to make it normal? I don’t want to remove the Nvidia drivers, but I’d also like a decent display.
I added the NVidia repository, and I tried to update the drivers, and tried to install an NVidia control panel … anything which I thought might fix the display.
I just did a fresh install, and I just copied all my old data from my last system to this new system. So, I am not sure how I can really install the previous kernel without blowing up what I have already.
I might just have to wait until there is an update to Nvidia drivers for this current kernel.
Well, I tried this command over the weekend, and it didn’t work.[/quote]Xrandr can only run from within X (Xterm, Konsole, LXterm, Gnome-terminal, etc.).
