View Full Version : [ubuntu] Gnome Desktop only spans quarter of my screen

February 6th, 2010, 11:17 AM
I have Karmic amd64 install with Gnome and Compiz. It worked fine until one day I booted into this (link to picture):


Really, my desktop now uses somewhat less than one quarter of available screen space. Mouse cursor can go outside the area, but windows cannot move there -- they cannot even overlap with the "restricted" area. I checked xorg.0.log, but found nothing suspicious. I can login into GNOME failsafe, but I don't know what to do there. I tried updating to the latest version of everything, but no change.

Any ideas?
