Can't change resolution mint20 xfce de


Recommended Posts

Clean fresh install all updates. The resolution is 1920 x 1080 which is to small for these poor old eyes. When I go to settings and try to change it to 1360 x 768 which works fine in Mint 20 cinnamon de the screen tears and goes nuts. This happens no matter what resolution I try. here is my inxi

I solved the problem. I changed the desktop settings from XFWM4 + Composting to Metacity + Composting. I guess the default was the XFWM4 and that won't work with my hardware. Thanks anyway security.
