see subject -- suddenly, my full HD ASUS VE228H flat panel has no
more of the slight left-to-right jitter it had under previous
releases. haven't plugged in mouse or keyboard yet, but the display
came up and it's solid. so what changed? and nice job.
man, you're picky. appears to be same res it was before when i
still had the jitter. re-booting with mouse and keyboard to check ...
"Monitor Preferences" tells me 1280x720. shouldn't i be able to do
better? like 1280x1024 if memory serves?
in any event, whatever koen(?) did for this release worked nicely to
get rid of the jitter.
ok, stupid question time but i've been up all night and i'm tired
... how can i check the display res from the command line? rather than
drag out the powered hub and mouse and keyboard, can i just ask for
the res at the shell prompt?
feel free to mock me for not knowing the answer to this.
Well. Uh. Actually. It is broken. It should be 1920 x 1080@24. But instead it is 1280x720. It defaults to the highest resolution supporting audio. I just hope when it gets fixed it still works for you.
Mock you? Never. Heck if I know. Other than turning the monitor off and on, I don’t know how to display it.
seriously? well, let me know if there's any more testing i can do
to be helpful. i'm definitely happier now that the jitter is gone so
i'll take my victories where i can get them.
Can you pick up and try the 5-18 version and test it?
you want me to revert from the 5-20 version back to 5-18?
Sure. You can always go back forward.
to clarify, i'm running the "Cloud9 GNOME Image 2013.05.20". and you
want me to revert to the "test-only" 5-18 version?
oh, i know ... i just wish i hadn't deleted it after i figured 5-20
solved my problems.
downloading now ...
Yes. Why? Because that had the 1920x180@24 working. I want to see if you can handle that. Why? Because once fixed the production version will be like the 5_18 in that respect, 1920x1080@24.
I do this oh 4-5 times per day. Sort of like cutting your toe nails!
a supported resolution of 1920x1080@24 isn't listed in Table 8 of
the BBB SRM, is that table going to be extended to include that res?
Yes, it will be extended AFTER the SW is available to support that resolution. In fact it has already been updated. I am just waiting on the SW to support it to be working so we can make the production release…
it's back to the jitter, and the res is still 1280x720, so i don't
think i've ever tested an install that ever gave me 1920x1080. so i'm
just going back to the 5-20 release and wait for something new to
OK. Let me see what might be going on.
xdpyinfo. It will display lots of very detailed and irrelevant
information, so it will be good to pipe the output through a pager.
Probably you will also need to provide information about which display
to query. The whole command line will look like this:
xdpyinfo -display :0 | less
Look for a line starting from "dimensions:", right under "screen #0".
