Problem regarding Resolution on Nvidia

arch general mailing list-2
Hello,

I am using nvidia proprietary driver on arch linux (GNOME with Wayland), My HDMI port broke so I connected my monitor using DVI ports (with VGA adapter since my monitor does not have any DVI output). Now my aspect ratio is fixed on 4:3. I can't make it to 16:9 nor can I use 1920*1080.

Steps I've taken :
1. Following archwiki I tried to create a new rule for xrandr but it failed
2. I tried editing xorg.conf refresh rate and it added some weird resolution but still no 16:9
3. Added subsection on "Screen" defining resolution, it did not do anything ;(

What can I do? Any suggestion will be helpful.

Thanks in advance.

J

You *might* want to try adjusting your framebuffer resolution, using the
'vga=0xwhatever' parameter in your bootloader config (you can get a list
of these resolutions with `sudo hwinfo --framebuffer`).

Did you try some troubleshooting with Xrandr? (https://wiki.archlinux.org/index.php/Xrandr) What screen configuration modes are shown when your display is connected?

But I remember Wayland has
nothing to do with X and draws the
UI directly on the fb unless your
app requires Xwayland... Did I get it
right???

So you might wish to check out the
KMS settings... I'm afraid...
