My mid life crisis nostalgic box :)
This works for me as @SUBSTRING suggested editing xinitrc
ssh into box, then do the following:
cp /etc/X11/xinit/xinitrc ~/.xinitrc
It will copy ~/.xinitrc to /recalbox/share/system (/recalbox/share/system/.xinitrc)
From there you can edit it with vi/nano from ssh, or use winscp/filezilla to edit /recalbox/share/system/.xinitrc
add this to the file: (1080p as an example)
xrandr -s 1920x1080
Note if you intend to use nano you may need to export the environment variable first with:
I have linked my working .xinitrc to force 720p:
Hello sebra-carp , sorry but I don`t speak spanish, but looking at your post @ZING referred you here.
Have you tried ?
xrandr -s 1280x720
As @Zing has mentioned you will need to kill emulation station first, here is another thread which might help:
It may be that xorg is not autodetecting the correct resolution of your 2nd display. You can use xrandr to duplicate the image or set a specific resolution on the vga port.
Common display names are:
LVDS - Laptop Screen
HDMI - High-Definition Multimedia Interface
DVI - Digital Visual Interface
DP - DisplayPort
VGA - Video Graphics Array
TV - Composite Video
S-video - S-Video
run xrandr from terminal to see what your displays are: (my example laptop)
~ $ xrandr
VGA-0 connected 1280x1024+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 340mm x 270mm 1280x1024 75.02+ 60.02 1024x768 75.03 70.07 60.00 800x600 75.00 72.19 60.32 56.25 640x480 75.00 72.81 59.94 LVDS-0 connected primary 1440x900+0+0 (normal left inverted right x axis y axis) 367mm x 230mm 1440x900 59.94+ HDMI-0 disconnected (normal left inverted right x axis y axis)
Once you know what your display names are you can use xrandr to set your display.
See the example displays I used with my laptop with a monitor connected via VGA, your display name may be different.
xrandr --output LVDS-0 --auto --output VGA-0 --auto --same-as LVDS-0 (this will duplicate the same resolution on the VGA port)
To set a specific resolution on the vga port (eg: 720 resolution)
xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1280x720
A more complete command that will duplicate the display and set set VGA to 720:
xrandr --output VGA-0 --mode 1280x720 --same-as LVDS-0
You could also switch off the laptops display if you want:
xrandr --output LVDS-0 --off
Or have the laptop screen off and VGA screen on:
xrandr --output LVDS-0 --off --output VGA-0 --mode 1280x720
Once you happy with it you can make it permanent by adding it ~/.xinitrc
My apologies for waffling on, hope it may help :)
- on PC it is necessary to make a fresh installation!
- several boot issues were raised, to ensure a total boot
you have to login in ssh to your Recalbox:
then once connect type these commands:
mount -o remount, rw /
mv /etc/init.d/S03splash /etc/init.d/splash
and everything should work at best
@strodown thanks for the tips, I had the same issue with a fresh install of 6.1 on a i5-8400T with iGPU.
Looks like your connection to Recalbox Forum was lost, please wait while we try to reconnect.
