Custom Resolution - Persistent

Thu Dec 14, 2017 9:01 am

I have bit strange display. Its 4K (3840 x 2160) 15" laptop screen, but without most common 1920 x 1080 Resolution. This FullHD would be most preferably for gaming as 1050 Ti can't really run most games on 4K resolution. Full HD does not screw the aspect ratios.

SO! I with my limited skills I have done following:


Code: Select all

cvt 1920 1080

Code: Select all

sudo xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync

Code: Select all

sudo xrandr --addmode eDP-1-1 "1920x1080_60.00"

Aye! It adds the Resolution nicely! After boot its gone. SO:

1) I added Budgie Startup command:

Code: Select all

xrandr --newmode "1920x1080_60.00"  173.00  1920 2048 2248 2576  1080 1083 1088 1120 -hsync +vsync
2) I added second Budgie Startup command:

Code: Select all

xrandr --addmode eDP-1-1 "1920x1080_60.00"

Aye! I solved it.... almost. Now and then, I don't know why, but this stops working. Then I remove the startup commands and I do whole thing again.

I'm close, but I'm sure that there is much better way to have this 1920 x 1080 resolution added Permanently. Can you help me a bit?
