  • Linux Lite: 5.4 64bit
I installed linux lite on https://www.dell.com/en/sletmeler/p/optiplex-3020-desktop/pd computer. I can set the screen size to a maximum of 1024x768. What should I do to make the screen size 1920x1080? Should I update the graphics card driver, how can I update the graphics card driver if I need to?

Launch a terminal and run these two commands:
To get your GPU's info:
Code: [Select]
inxi -Gand to get available resolution modes
Code: [Select]
xrandrThen copy/paste the output in your reply using tag codes, you can do that by:
1. Using [ code ] paste output here [ / code ] there should be no spaces, I used them just so you could see how it's done.
2. Click the # symbol/icon in the toolbar which is just right under Font Size, then copy/paste the output from terminal between the tags. The reason to use code tags is to make it more readable, so looks something like this
Code: [Select]
