    Projector display problems

    Hello fellow Linux users, I am running on Ubuntu 12.04 with Xfce4 DE on Acer AspireOne with gma500 drivers. I connected it via VGA to projector and it displayed only 2/3 of my desktop on projector. What do I need to do adjust to get fully displayed image on projector like I have it on laptop display?
    How do I set output resolution on VGA port to match my on-screen display and projector display, thats my real question.

    My regards.

    You could try this solution.
    That said, GMA500 is not the best candidate for multimidia. Given the current state of support and the age of the hardware, it would only work well as a file server or something similar.

    Yes that fix works great, it was exactly the thing I needed, now it works.
    I have no problem in adjusting resolution anymore so I can make projections.
    And yeah I am aware that GMA500 is not very multimedia friendly chipset but hey thats all I got for now.

    My regards, stay brutal.
