I've got an Orange Pi PC with Loboris' Ubuntu Vivid Mate installed. Thank you, Loboris. Everything works, except my monitor has a resolution of 1280 x 1024. The screen is cut off on the left side, plus the part that shows is squeezed horizontally. Is there any way to make Ubuntu Vivid Mate automatically discover the correct monitor resolution and adjust on the fly? If that is not avialable, is there a recipe out there to force the monitor to use a specific resolution? I've already scoured the forum, but perhaps I missed something.

Thanks,

Chris

I've got a similar problem. The edges around my desktop are cut off. I have tried every Ubuntu walkthrough you can think of to change the resolution, but I have found nothing for Mate vivid. I am currently trying to use Remote desktop to see if it is the OS or just my monitor.

I am wondering if it is possibly my script.bin file as well. I am using OPI-PC.720p60_hdmi, but I wonder if using the 1080 will fix the problem  I will have to see though. I will keep you updated, if I find anything relevant.

I'm using orangepi mini with ARMBIAN distro.
Thiis is my boot.cmd. Remember affter changes you must compile and convert to boot.scr.
note.
          disp.screen0-output_mode=EDID:1280x720P
It means when using Hdmi port, if detected automaticaly sets native screen resoluton (EDID) else screen resolution is set to 1280x720


setenv bootargs console=tty1 root=/dev/mmcblk0p1 rootwait rootfstype=ext4 hdmi.audio=EDID:0 disp.screen0_output_mode=EDID:1280x720p60 panic=10 consoleblank=0 enforcing=0 loglevel=1 coherent_pool=1M
