How to stretch screen on smaller resolutions.
#1
Wink 
When i change resolution from 1366x768 to 1024x768, i see black bars. I don't like that so I want to change it to scale full screen, like in Windows Intel HD Graphics Control Center. 

Which commands I need to apply??


Code:
Graphics:  Card: Intel Device 5a85
          Display Server: x11 (X.Org 1.20.1 )
          drivers: modesetting (unloaded: fbdev,vesa)
          Resolution: 1366x768@60.00hz
          OpenGL: renderer: Mesa DRI Intel HD Graphics 500 (Broxton 2x6)
          version: 4.5 Mesa 18.2.8

You can use the 'xrandr' command. However I recommend using 'arandr', a graphical frontend to 'xrandr', which allows you to easiely change your screen settings to your liking.

If you still want to use the command line, you will have to find out the name of your
screen / output. Mine is called 'eDP1'. Just executing 'xrandr' should give you the
name. If you know the name, try the following command, which should set the screen to
the best possible resolution (obviously you will have to change 'eDP1' to whatever your
output is called:

Code:
xrandr --output eDP1 --auto

To set it to a specific mode:

Code:
xrandr --output eDP1 --mode 2560x1080_60.00

The output of 'xrandr' should also tell you which modes are available.
