Default Resize on Linux


I'm using a GeForce 8600 GT connected to my LCD Television and I'm using a dual boot system ( Windows 7 and Ubuntu 9.04).

When I installed the Windows 7, the screen resolution was right but the image was outsite the screen (offscreen). I correct this using the Resize HDTV Desktop option in the NVidia Control Pannel.

But, in Ubuntu, the NVidia Settings don't have this option to resize HDTV desktop.

How do I do the same thing that I do in Windows 7 into the Ubuntu?

I'm using the last version of driver 180.51.

Thanks a lot!

Daniel Fuchs

Default Re: Resize on Linux

-> GPU-0 (card #) -> DFP-0 / DFP-1 (TV name#) -> Flat Panel Scaling
[x] Force Full GPU Scaling then select Aspect Ratio Scaled


-> X Server Display Configuration -> Display
then select your TV and change your resolution

(you might need to #1 add your TV as a second display, #2 then disable your first display, #3 re-adjust the resolution of your TV)

do those entries exist for you ?
3.19.2-plus+ w. zram, ZFS, Btrfs; checksums>others

Gentoo all the way
