Hi members, first post and very green in linux.

I am trying to make a small terminal services machine and am Using a Shuttle XS35.

I have a tried a few monitors and it only seems to work with monster display 32" and above.

When I boot into a normal 19" monitor it always missed the top half of the taskbar so you cant get to anything.

I have tried booting off the big monitor and adjusting the resolution but the moment I plug into the small one it always displays incorrectly.

Is there anyway I can adjust the resolution from the command line?
Or perhaps a kind member can provide a config file to edit or add.

Many thanks in advance. handy.

It sounds like the small monitor isn't picking up the video signal correctly. Do you have size/position adjustments on the small monitor that you can use to bring the video on-screen?

Hi handy & welcome smile.gif

in order to let community help you, we need more information about your setup and what you want to achieve.

e.g.
- Shuttle XS35 is some kind of ergonomic Mini PC right?
- if it is so, we need more information about your HW => post here output of:
lspci
lsusb

- next, do you run X server (aka do you boot to GUI - gnome or KDE desktop) or do you only boot without any GUI, meaning you have only CLI (command line) after boot?
- what terminal services you talk about? i mean i know there 'terminal services' service in Windows, but i dont know about anything like that in Linux ...(might be i miss something..)

- also, what is spec of you LCD (or CRT?) screens? supported resolutions? max resolution?

post and i'm sure someone will have some handy advice ...


cheers,
