Hi Voria,

I was over at Insanelywind and noticed that somebody posted a thread mentioning that the screen resolution can be set higher than the default.

He mentions that if you run terminal and type:

xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1024x600 --scale 1.25x1.25

And voilá! Now you have a virtual resolution of 1280x750, with no need to scroll. As it name suggest, the command is part of the X system, and it means to Rotate and Resize.

You can play with the scaling factor. Personally, i left it at 1.2x1.2

It has to be run everytime the system starts. Would you be able to make a script that gets launched on boot to make the changes permanent.

Thank you for your time

All the best

Nice find, it can be useful at times. ;)

Anyway, there is no need for complicated scripts here.
Just create a new file and past this text in it:
Code:
#!/bin/bash
xrandr --output LVDS1 --mode 1024x600 --scale 1.25x1.25
Make it executable:
Code:
chmod +x <filename>
Then go to 'System'->'Preferences'->'Startup Applications' and add it to the list. :)
