View Full Version : [ubuntu] External monitor from a laptop: Desktop and maximised windows slightly too big

June 30th, 2010, 01:48 PM
Just upgraded to lucid and it seems to be sometimes sensing the monitor size as slightly too large. So that the right-hand edge of the desktop and of maximised windows is sliced off - I can only just see a sliver of the scroll bar and the "close" button (yes, I have got them on the right).

But then, sometimes not - I just unplugged and replugged the monitor, and it's now fine. Bit weird.

I'm running lucid on a laptop (Advent 4211 = MSI wind) with an external dell monitor.

Thanks, Elizabeth
