Hi: I run a linux OS, slackware 14.0 to be specific, and when I run the startx command (which actually is a shell script), some piece of software must be in charge of, for example, telling the video card which resolution to use. Does it make sense to say that a certain program sets the video resolution? I assume that the video card does not remember or store the resolution.
Hello I'm a relatively new ubuntu user and I'm having some trouble with the burg bootloader. The issue is that when I choose the ubuntu option it works 1/3 of the time without any trouble but sometimes the resolution when I get to ubuntu is weird and half the screen is not shown and sometimes it doesn't start at all but freezes on a black screen.
I've been having trouble with this because I'm new to Linux:
I would like to convert different video formats to ogv. I found some terminal commands like this: ffmpeg -i input.avi -acodec libvorbis -ac 1 -b 768k output.ogg
The problem with these type of commands is that they are intended to change bit rate, fps, or even resolution.
I had an issue with arandr, I start playing with the resolutions and such. Restarted and noticed that I had lost half my settings for resolution within arandar. So i defaulted everything in arandar - sudo reboot. Upon the next startup everything was fine again. No clue what happened but I haven't had any trouble since. maybe the two issues are related?
I hope I'm not asking a question that was asked on this forum already.
I'm new to linux systems. Today I've installed Ubuntu on wmware and it works fine, but, I can't set the right resolution for my computer (1600X900). I have tried to create custom resolution and without any luck.
