How to persist my display resolution and polybar weirdness? (BSPWM community running in Boxes)

I freshly installed the BSPWM community edition in a virtual machine
And the default res is 1024x768
Then I set it to 1920x1080 and the polybar doesn’t scale, also the wallpaper is repeating
And also the change doesn’t persist, I have to set resolution every time after boot.

Welcome! :wave:

To persist resolution, see Resolution and Arandr section → Beginner's Quick Start Guide to Endeavour OS Bspwm Edition

Pressing Mod+Alt+r to reload Bspwm as I’ve mentioned there, should fix wallpaper and polybar width. Feel free to ask if you have any queries regarding the process.


Thanks for that very quick response! Its fixed.

  1. $ sudo vim /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

  2. look for “display-setup-script” it will be commented out

  3. make it: display-setup-script=xrandr --output Virtual-1 --mode 1920x1080

When you reboot, it should set your resolution without having to use the Welcome Screen.

I’m using sddm not lightdm will look for a solution for that.
Thanks :+1:
