View Full Version : [SOLVED] Nvidia gui issue

January 13th, 2010, 05:38 PM
Recently upgraded from Hardy to Jaunty. I am having a problem with changing the resolution.

Nvidia GUI recognizes my graphics card (GeForce 6200) and my monitor (Acer 191W). But it is stuck in 800 x 600. I cannot scroll down to the settings to make the necessary changes the because screen is too large.

I know I am revealing my stupidity, but I do not know enough about the xconfig file to attempt a fix.

Any ideas?

Try moving the window either by running the mouse to the area you want to see, or drag the window with alt-left click and drag.

Grab the window by ALT+LeftMouseButton to move it upwards, so you could access the bottom part.

If the window refuse to move beyond top of the screen, enter this command in a terminal:

gconftool-2 --set /apps/compiz/plugins/move/allscreens/options/constrain_y --type bool 0

The ALT+LeftMouseButton did the trick!

Thanks for both of your prompt replies.
