Greeter (login) screen resolution

Postby oguldon » 2017-06-16 11:26

Hello
I've hit a bit of a snag, I'm trying to set the default screen res for gdm3 (the Greeter (login)) screen
I have gone though greeter.dconf-defaults found the option for the welcome text, just not the screen resolution

once I log in as a user, I can set/change that users screen res,

I'm hoping its something simple that I've missed

thanks in advance

Become ROOT?
Make the change.
Save.
Close.

The change should be kept.

Once you've logged in, is the users desktop resolution as expected? Is it just the login greeter that is wrong?

Yes. it's only the greeter, not a user's environment/profile
i was hoping its a line in the "greeter.dconf-defaults" but I don't see anything about it or for it

I use lightdm and have a line within its /etc/lightdm/lightdm.conf

display-setup-script=/usr/local/bin/1280x720

and that script contains a xrandr command specific to my hardware to set my preferred resolution

#!/bin/bash
xrandr --output DVI-I-2 --mode 1280x720_60.00 --rate 59.86 --output DVI-I-1 --off

Searching using that concept for gdm produced

What about Xorg? Wouldn't that set the initial resolution before the login greeter. Then, maybe, Gnome Shell changes the resolution again after the greeter.

Do you use a xorg.conf file?
