    Unable to change screen resolution

    DOOMguy, thank you too for your post. I agree that creating an xorg.config that defines the desired mode should work. I have to do some research and learn how to do it. It will take some time for me to figure out this. With Puppy Precise 5.7.1, in which the 1280x800 resolution works fine, again I have to learn how to replicate or adapt their solution to Bodhi. When Bodhi boots in the initial screens just before it fully enters, the resolution is much better, probably 1280x800. But I don't get the grub screen to see any details. For your information, using a PepperMint OS 5 Live CD (2014 06 23 i386) I reconfirmed that the higher resolution is possible in my Acer Aspire 3002WLCi

    Hi, I just saw your post. Could you help me in the right syntaxis for xrandr using --mode 1280x800? I really would like to get that screen resolution with Bodhi Linux since I get it using Puppy Linux in this Laptop Please see: hugo@hugo-Aspire-3000:~$ cvt 1280 800 # 1280x800 59.81 Hz (CVT 1.02MA) hsync: 49.70 kHz; pclk: 83.50 MHz Modeline "1280x800_60.00" 83.50 1280 1352 1480 1680 800 803 809 831 -hsync +vsync hugo@hugo-Aspire-3000:~$ xrandr --newmode "1280x800_60.00" 83.50 1280 1352 1480 1680 800 803 809 831 -hsync +vsync xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default hugo@hugo-Aspire-3000:~$ I don't know how to solve the error: xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default

    I tried the suggestion of the second link and the resolution improved a lot: hugo@hugo-Aspire-3000:~$ xrandr -q xrandr: Failed to get size of gamma for output default Screen 0: minimum 640 x 480, current 1024 x 768, maximum 1024 x 768 default connected 1024x768+0+0 0mm x 0mm 1024x768 61.00* 800x600 61.00 640x480 60.00 hugo@hugo-Aspire-3000:~$ I know that it is possible to achieve 1280x800 75, but for me, current 1024x768 61.00 is good enough, since the screen contains entirely the web browser, and terminal fits also within, there is not over reach. Therefore I consider this thread SOLVED. Thank you very much to all participants.

    Yes, the card should work, since, as I indicated my my initial post: "This laptop works well with 1280x800 75 since I have Puppy Linux Precise 5.7.1. running fine". Because of this, I am sure it is a software and/or configuration issue.

    Unable to change screen resolution

    The CPU processor is AMD Mobile Sempron 2800+ / 1.6 GHz , Chipset Type SiSM760GX, Graphics Processor SiS Mirage 2, DISPLAY Resolution 1280 x 800 (WXGA) Yes, the processor supports PAE extension. I looked for kernel through Synaptic but could not figure out how to choose a newer kernel. Can you orient me in changing the kernel?
  10. I just installed Bodhi 4 Legacy on an old Acer Aspire 3002WLCi. When starts to boot screen resolution seems fine, but once the system finally enter, screen resolution change to the very basic 640x480. This laptop works well with 1280x800 75 since I have Puppy Linux Precise 5.7.1. running fine. xrandr -q shows the following error: Failed to get size of gamma for output I already reviewed several related posts in this Forum and tried to apply the suggestions in them with no results. I note that at reboot or poweroff the screen resolution is corrected, similar than initial screen at boot. How can I solve this?
  11. Twilight_Genesis: your very complete post has will be my personal reference information on system stability and kernel usage. I am keeping it in hard copy. Thank you. Charles@Bodhi: you addressed my specific question regarding the kernel 3.2.0-52-generic that I have in Bodhi32 in my old Acer Aspire 3002 WLCi. I am quite clear. Thank you. This thread is more than SOLVED
  12. I am a happy user of Bodhi32 laptop-type in an Acer Aspire 3002 WLCi, 2 Gb RAM (which is its maximum), in dual boot with Windows XP. My kernel is 3.2.0-52-generic. I am aware of new kernels available and also of Reasons for Kernel Update If the main concern is system stability, (1) which is the current best kernel to use? and in general, (2) which general practice is the most advisable for kernel update if stability is the main concern?

    [SOLVED] How to install a Grub2 Menu Theme

    Charles@Bodhi: DONE IT! I used your first method. Thank you. SOLVED What I have to learn now is how to change the color of the text in the Boot Menu, since it is white and it is hard to read. I need to apply a dark color, like deep blue, or black, or simply change the theme for other with dark background. P.S.: I changed now for a dark background image (Apollo_17_The_Last_Moon_Shot_Edit1.tga) and now looks perfect! Thank you to all participants in this thread: Twilight_Genesis, swordplay, and Charles@Bodhi. I not only got my objective but also learned a lot from all you!
