Display resolution/size

A newbie…more or less lol. My desktop suddenly change to 640x480…and haven’t figured out how to change it. Xrandr gives me an error in gamma, and display gives me only LoDPI and pixel double…help! this is WAY to big!!

@GJBNH Welcome
Without much information this isn’t very helpful. At minimum it would better if you say what desktop you have installed. Also is best to provide some hardware information. You can use:

inxi -Fxxxz --no-host | eos-sendlog

Edit: I corrected the spelling on the Topic for the post.

Welcome @GJBNH. I’m sure, with more information, someone in this group will find a cure for you.

Sorry…such a newbie…I’m using Pantheon

Is the screen resolution problem on a single monitor or multiple monitors?

Edit: Also could you post some hardware info?

inxi -Fxxxz --no-host | eos-sendlog

The problem exists on the built in screen. It’s an AIO HP DF0003w.

Okay…i see this is an all in one HP. From what i see it should be an HD 1920x1080. Are you able to post the command:


Continuing the discussion from Display resolution/size:

xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default
Screen 0: minimum 1024 x 768, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768
default connected primary 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm
1024x768 76.00*

What does inxi -Ga show?

Are you using sudo? Try without sudo

Edit: Actually i really need the hardware info. Can you please post the following.

inxi -Fxxxz --no-host | eos-sendlog

/usr/bin/inxi: illegal option – a
Error 7: One of the options you entered in your script parameters: -Ga
is not supported.The option may require extra arguments to work.
For supported options (and their arguments), check the help menu: inxi -h

Not sure what you are entering as this command works on EndeavourOS.

inxi -Ga

I get Error 7…one of the options not supported

Did you try

inxi -Fxxxz --no-host | eos-sendlog

guys I’m cutting and pasting your commands…

I tagged the last one so maybe it works.

eos-sendlog: command not found

cat /etc/os-release
