Setting right resolution and refresh rate

(1/2) > >>

dodo:
Hi,
After installation and update of LL, i can't find native resolution of my monitor in Settings->Display.
My monitor's native resolution is 1360x760-75 Hz
in Settings->Display there is a lot of resolutions on list but not my native.
Currently it is set to 1366x768-59.8 Hz and right border of screen is cut off few pixels.
Driver is probably installed correctly since i can play 720p videos in .mp4 and .mkv formats fullscreen
Is there any way to set res. and refresh rate manually?

dodo:
Hm..., looks like problem is somewhere else, because monitor is capable of displaying both resolutions.
But, when i enter setup of my monitor, (via buttons on monitor), info. say that current res is 1360x768  :-\ which can't be since LL is set to 1366x768 so there is something fishy here.
For test i changed resolution to 1360x768 via terminal and it doesn't make change, screen is still cut off few pixels on the right. This is not big deal but it is kinda irritating cause i can see only half of scroll bar on the right side. Funny thing when i do printscreen, picture is full, no cutoff i described can be seen.
And i noticed, youtube goes so slow when in fullscreen, but runs normally when regular size. Which is also mistery because i can run 720p fullscreen in VLC just fine.

My graphics card is old ATI Radeon 9600 pro, and settings->install drivers say:"no proprietary drivers are in use on this system" so i assume drivers installed automatically during installation of LL.

Install a program called arandr and see if you can set the correct resolution there.


--- Code: ---sudo apt-get install arandr
--- End code ---

No ATI Radeon 9600 pro driver shows up because your card is not supported any more, you'll have to stick with the open source one which is already installed and running.

As mentioned by gold_finger in another thread, you could try SMTube to bypass flash and use VLC.

I was experimenting little bit with arandr and it doesn't do the trick.
I checked in "lite Software Center" and looks like "Ati binary x.org driver" is installed.
Is that open source driver you were tlaking about? If so i would like to uninstall it and replace with any alternative i have (if there is an alternave) just for test to see if that solves my problem with cutoff screen.

I installed SMTube and it doesn't do the trick since you have to go to Multimedia-SMPlayer Youtube Browser and watch from there. Since my sister is dummy, it will be too complicated for her, she only knows to open Firefox (i placed shortcut on desktop) and use google. But i kept SMPlayer as it serves well as youtube downloader :)
