Problem with resolution.
« on: August 31, 2019, 10:35:57 pm »
Hello,

  I have a problem using Sparky Linux Xfce. Monitor resolution is not adequate (800x600) as it should be 1024x768.
  I already tried the link https://sparkylinux.org/how-to-set-monitor-resolution/, but it doesn't work. Resolution appears in the options menu, but cannot be selected.

oh, btw  brand new install or occurs after an upgrade/update?
peace out

another edit,  If you are <u>not</u> using testing this will probably not concern you

possibly look at
https://forum.siduction.org/index.php?topic=7749.msg63188;topicseen#new     or


https://forum.siduction.org/index.php?topic=7749.0.html

towo rolls the kernel for Siduction, you do not get individuals more competent with Debian than him.   

Please do not post there for help, it is for users of Siduction to post, but anyone can watch and learn there.

Search forum for "More info easier via inxi"    If requested -  no inxi, no help for you by  me.

Hello Lucas!

I am not familiar with this problem, but google showed me this: https://www.linuxliteos.com/forums/installing-software/can%27t-change-resolution-(currently-640x480)/

does your PC report similar problem: " xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default"?
