I have installed opensuse 11.4 couple of days ago. Installation went smoothly. Everything is working just fine except the screen resulation. My Monitor supports up to 1366768. The Display Settings in 11.4 gives option of 1366768, But whenever I maximize any window (say firefox, opera etc) I can not see the close button & scroll-bar.
Here is my xorg file of monitor.
Identifier "Default Monitor"
## If your monitor doesn't support DDC you may override the
## defaults here
## Add your mode lines here, use e.g the cvt tool
So What I need to do to fix this resulation problem?
Screen 0: minimum 320 x 200, current 1366 x 768, maximum 4096 x 4096
VGA-0 connected 1366x768+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 410mm x 230mm
1024x768 75.1 70.1 60.0
800x600 72.2 75.0 60.3 56.2
640x480 72.8 75.0 66.7 60.0
S-video disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
I guess that isn’t the width of your screen! More likely to be the screen diagonal from corner to opposite corner, i.e. longer than the width or height. If you have a ruler, you can measure the width of the displayable area (not the casing) by hand as accurately as possible. Also measure the displayable height. Try and locate a published specification for your monitor.
BTW what is the brand/make and model/type of your monitor?
Did you configure monitor as suggested by @Ecky in post #5? You could also try that.
BTW My x-server has stopped working (after sudden electricity-loss). So i can’t boot in a graphical mode (only CLI). However i have tried startx command & see some error. I will open a different topic on that problem.
OK, searching google, I keep seeing the native resolution quoted as 1360x768 for that display, and not 1366x768 as per xrandr’s report. That could have something to do with your display problem. By default, the system (xorg-xserver) is delivering 1366 pixels per width to a screen only capable of showing 1360 pixels per width.
Looks like you will need to configure a custom modeline like @Ecky suggested, assuming the graphic card/driver can handle the modesetting.
