Screen Size

I just upgraded to opensuse V13.1 V64 and the desktop display is about 3 mm too big to fit my screen, I can’t see whats on the edges.

During the upgrade, I also changed from gnome to KDE, I’m still a little lost.

I tried resizing the display on my HP 2511x flatscreen with the buttons on the lower right, but there’s no functionality to shrink the display.

How do I shrink the desktop window by about 3mm all around?

My hardware:

Motherboard: MSI 760GM-E51
Architecture: x86_64
CPU: Authentic AMD FX-4100 Quad-Core Processor, 3600 MHz
Memory: 8 GiB, DDR3-1600
Graphics_Card: nVidia GF108 ( GeForce GT 630) (VGA compatible controller)
Network: Fast Ethernet Realtek RTL8111DL

OS_Type: openSUSE 13.1 (Mantis) 64 bit
Kernel: 3.11.10-7-desktop
KDE 4.11.5

Thank you.

  1. Are you sure you can’t turn off the overscan via a monitor setting somewhere?

  2. Are you using the proprietary nvidia driver or the open source (default) nouveau driver?
    If using the proprietary driver, perhaps this blog might be helpful:

If using the proprietary nVidia driver, I am thinking that the OP might just need to go from the menu toSystem => Configuration => Configure NVIDIA X Server Settings

and go to X Server Display Configuration,

Click on the Advanced button,

and make sure panning matches resolution.
